Description :Text engraving with lettered key (A-I) showing fishes and birds, whale and Dutch vessels seen around the costs of Southern Africa from "Premier livre de l'histoire de la navigation aux Indes Orientales, par les hollandois, et des choses a eux advenues . . . ", being the classic account of the first Dutch voyage to the East Indies under the command of Cornelis de Houtman. the expedition left in 1595, after Holland had achieved independence from Spain and could therefore freely explore its own interests in the East.
The ships sailed across the Atlantic to Brazil, and rounded the Cape of Good Hope on 7 February 1595. They arrived in Sumatra in May 1596 and proceeded to Java with the intention of reaching the Moluccas. The ships were un-seaworthy, however, and troubles arouse between captains and crew. Finally reaching an accord, they sailed to Bali and returned to Texel in August 1597, with only eighty-nine of the crew left alive. Because of the increased price of pepper, the voyage was able to turn a profit, despite returning with a small cargo.
