Alfred Raquez in Java

Our friend Alfred Raquez visited Java in 1898 and wrote about it in an obscure article published in 1902. Paul and I translated and edited Raquez’s piece and our work has been accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed journal Archipel, which is forthcoming.

Ahead of that debut, an excerpt that doesn’t include any of the scholarly work but mostly Paul’s English translation has now been published on the website of Indonesia Expat magazine. Now you can enjoy Raquez’s insightful observations and wry humor without our foonotes!

Feel free to buy our translation of Raquez’s In the Land of Pagodas, his book of travels through China in 1899, published by NIAS Press. That has lots of footnotes!
