ee   "Vendu-boeken" or Registers of auction sales (1722 - 1794).
The conditions of sale, which were announced prior to the sale, are bound up in front of each file.
These are apparently sales held by the Company of property and effects on behalf of private individuals, the Company acting in the same role as an "auctioneer and broker" of the present day.
The registers of sales of the "Weesmeesteren" or Orphan Chamber at Galle are shown separately.
The "vendu-boeken" are sale lists, showing the disposal of each item sold and the name of the purchaser. The series called "Maan-rollen" or "Quitantie-rollen" which follow below are the summaries of the receipts or proceeds of each sale.
