Cont. hcl. Written in a legible hand, ornated with several tipped in postcards with harbour scenes, small drawings and other documents.

On the first leaf are the names of the captain and commanding officers: Cohen Stuart, Diemer Kool, De Wal, Medembach, De Ronde, Vlielander Hein, etc. From an internet page devoted to HM Friesland (Wikipedia) we learn, that the ship came in service in 1898 and withdrawn in 1915.

Het schip was 94 meter lang, 14,8 meter breed en had een diepgang van 5,41 meter. De waterverplaatsing bedroeg 3900 ton. De motoren van het schip leverden 10000 pk waarmee een snelheid van 20 knopen gehaald kon worden. Het schip werd bemand door 371 man.").
