Bassenge (Auction, 4 December 2013, lot: 4055) provided the following background for this photographer:
 
Between 1877- 79 the Royal Netherlands Geographical Society (Koninklijk Nederlandsch Aardrrjkskundig Genootschap) organized a scientific expedition to Central Sumatra (Dutch East Indies) led by Lieutenant Johannes Schouw Santvoort (Royal Dutch Navy), with members Daniel David Veth (geographer and photographer), Arend Ludolf van Hasselt (ethnographer) and Johannes Francois Snelleman (zoologist). Son of the geographer and ethnographer Pieter Johannes Veth (1814-1895), who supervised the publication of the present album, Daniel David Veth was educated in Dutch schools and attended technical colleges in Hanover and Stuttgart to learn engineering. In 1877 he was summoned to join the Central Sumatra expedition. The expedition's objective was to map the Hari River basin and to study the people and the natural environment of Central Sumatra. Veth was responsible for the photographs and mapping. He died an early death from dysentery after the gruelling conditions of an expedition in Africa led to his illness.
The location "Hari River basin" is not totally accurate and it would be better to use the region of the "Batang Hari" or "Batang Hari river". (pers. comm. Don Longuevan, email, 16 Feb 2015)
