Of the four expeditions known to have touched Easter Island between 1722 and 1786 many written records are available. Some reports are very scientific, including maps that show the exact landing spots. This is unfortunately not the case in regard to the Dutch visit of 1722. Although it is well known that Roggeveen's fleet came to the island on April 5, 1722, and an abstract of his journal was published in English by B.G. Corney in 1908, little importance was given to it by the general public.
