The conquest of Laala by De Vlamingh van Outshoorn, September 20, 1654
The plate is taken from the Blaeu-Van der Hem Atlas.
The village of Laala on Ceram was captured and destroyed in 1652 by VOC troops led by Arnold de Vlamingh van Outshoorn. This conquest formed part of the "Amboinsche oorlogen" waged by the VOC on the Moluccan population during the period 1651 to 1656. In order to safeguard its monopoly the VOC attacked villages where the population grew cloves themselves.
