Date : Amsterdam, Evert Cloppenburgh, 1638.
Size : 12.0 x 7.9 inches. / 30.5 x 20.0 cm.

Description :A fine example of Linschoten's classic illustrated travelogue to the East and West Indies, termed by Lach “the most important of the firsthand accounts published independently of the great travel collections” (I.198). No other book contained so much usable intelligence on the East and West Indies as Linschoten's. Unhindered by the censorship that affected writers from the Iberian Peninsula, the author included such information as sailing directions, physical descriptions of countries, and statistics on commerce and trade.
The work was held in such high regard that for nearly a century, every Dutch ship headed for the East carried a copy of a Dutch edition of Linschoten.
