Execution of criminals in Benin. According to the text : The town of Benin is quite large and comprises homes with no windows, only open roofs. The more distinguished houses have three or four steps leading up to the front door. The chief and his noblemen ride out each day in the following manner: the horses are small and the saddle is a wooden chair on which a nobleman sits sideways, just as women on horseback do. On each side of the rider is a servant who supports him. The horse is lead by another servant. Others follow behind - one holding up a parasol over the riderís head, while the rest play their musical instruments. Benin is where sentences are carried out and criminals are brought for execution. They are blindfolded, with hands tied behind their backs. Then they are forced to kneel down, with their heads held forward, so that the executioner can chop off their heads".

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
