Between August 1848 and July 1855 he was on furlough in Europe during which time his great work Java, Zijne Gedaante, Zijn Plantentoot en Inwendige Bouw was published by P.N. van Kampen, of Amsterdam and C.W. Mieling of The Hague, together with an Atlas of eleven large coloured lithograph plates measuring 33 cm x 46 cm on average. In 1853 two German editions were published entitled Landschaften-Atlas Zu Java Seine Gestalt, Pflanzendecke Und Innere Bauart.
