Perhaps the first Europeans ever to reach Colombian shores where Alonso de Ojeda and his crew during their voyage in 1499-1500. Amerigo Vespucci was reputed to be among them.
Many Indians along the shoreline of Cabo de la Vela, in the province of Cuquibacao where they were believed to have landed, fled into the woods. The Spanish followed them and soon came across a settlement where many strange creatures were being prepared for a meal, including ‘horrible snakes with feet and wings’ (iguanas).
The Indians were very hospitable to the visitors and even offered them their womenfolk with such persistence that the visitors found these offers hard to refuse.

In 1631 Johann Ludwig Gottfried, inherited the Theodor De Bry’s publishing firm, among the illustrated accounts of the expeditions of Magellan, Columbus, Vespucci, Cortes, Balboa, Raleigh, Drake, Smith, and many others.
Gottfried issued together with Matthaeus Merian a one-volume condensation "Newe Welt Vnd Americanische Historien/ Jnhaltende Warhafftige vnd volkommene Beschreibungen Aller West-Jndianischen Landschafften..." that used many of the original copper plates and supplemented them with new ones of more recent voyages. The book was published by Matthaeus Merian. The work was reprinted in 1655 / 1657.
