A book of really gorgeous lithographic plates by Aguste Van Pers made in the 19th century of Java under Dutch Rule. 

Download a B/W book of the plates with French text accompanying the plate >> Here

The colour version of the book in English is apparently really rare, with only 2 in the world (link)
