Abstract


I examine some topics concerning knowledge management through the activities of the factory of the Dutch East India Company in Japan. I use Dutch archival materials to show the movement from the tacit dimension of knowledge to concrete, written forms.

Keywords


Dutch East India Company, Early modern history, Information history, Information management, maps
