The last one I found
>170 M'Leod, John Voyage of his majesty's ship Alceste to China, Corea and 
>the Island of Lewchew with an account of her shipwreck
>London, 1820. 339 pp. 5 chromo-lithographs in colour. 22x13 cm. Cloth.
>Dfl 780,00
>Very fine copy of this early account of a voyage to the Ryukyu islands.

On this URL:

>I have found a copy of the book written around 1816 about the voyage of
>the ship "Alceste" to Korea, etc (4-5 illustrations, a map and around 300 
>pp. of text).

Actually the map makes it more expensive, old books and maps are after 
collectors items. The book of Hoetink I bought was 350 guilders, never 
opened and never read, since I had to cut the pages open ;-)
