Title : [Portrait of Jan Huijgen van Linschoten.].
Map maker : DE BRY, Th..
Date : Frankfurt, 1599.
Size : 5.6 x 4.1 inches. / 14.1 x 10.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Rare head and shoulder portrait of the famous explorer Jan Huijgen van Linschoten. The portrait medallion has an oval frame of simulated metal upon which is engraved Linschoten's French motto, Soufrir pour parvenir (which may be translated "Endure in order to succeed"), his name in Latin, Joannes Hugonis A Linschoten Haerlemensis, aged 35, and the date, 1598. His continued loyalty to Haarlem as his birthplace is shown by its inclusion in his name, while the age and date given enable us to place his birthdate as 1563.

After his stay in the Indian city of Goa, Van Linschoten set out for Europe with a Portuguese return fleet in 1588. One of the ships was wrecked off the Azores in 1591. Van Linschoten was given the task of staying behind to protect the cargo. At the request of the Portuguese governor of the islands, Dom Christov„o de Moura, he made a map of the city.

Theodore de Bry, a German engraver and book dealer, began a compilation of early voyages in 1590 and had published six parts at the time of his death in 1598. His widow, two sons, and another family member continued the work, which comprised a total of fifty-four parts when it was completed in 1630. The publication is in two series, denoted the Grands Voyages and the Petit Voyages. A German edition of the Petit Voyages was published in 1599 in Frankfurt am Main. A second German edition came out in 1616. Latin editions were published in 1609 and 1629.
