  1. Please keep me informed! I recieved a PhD on “Navigating through Technology: Technology and the Dutch East India Company VOC in the eighteenth century” which is concerned with maaters of shipdesign and shipbuilding, health and route finding. See researchnet under Johan de Jong to find the full text
