Scarce print with a German text sheet. A few miles north of Manzanillo is the natural harbour of Santiago,(St. Jago) where Spilbergenís fleet, marked (A), anchored. A small Spanish ship (B), which was keeping watch, warned the soldiers ashore of an imminent invasion. They came out of the woods (D) to repel the Dutch (E) when they landed.
The Dutch fought back, at the same time taking care to guard their boats: (G). Many men on both sides were killed in the battle (F), so the Dutch eventually sailed a few miles further north to another harbour, called Barra de Navidad, (Nativitlaet) where they caught a strange fish (K), after which they went ashore to get fresh water from a nearby river (I). From de Bry's "Great American Voyages".

Johann Theodor de Bry (1561-1623) was born in LiŤge in 1561, the eldest son of the engraver and publisher Theodor de Bry. It was from his father that Johann learned his craft, producing both engravings and etchings.
In 1588, the Lutheran De Bry family settled in Frankfurt am Main, a safe haven for Lutherans at this time of religious discord. Together with his father and brother (Johann IsraŽl de Bry), Johann published two popular emblem books.
He also produced engravings from celebrated contemporary painters. De Bry died in Frankfurt in 1623.
