Description :Native American method of working gold and silver. Men blow through reeds over a hearth, furnace, or foundry. Other men pound metal with hammers. Other men work the metal into statues or idols and vessels on benches.

In 1528 Pizarro set out on a voyage of true exploration in search of the civilization and riches of Peru, about which he had heard so much from the Indians of Panama. When his ship entered the Gulf of Guayaquil and his men went ashore, they were confronted by crowds of Indians. A bearded Greek, named Pedro de Candía, with sword in hand, marched boldly up the shore. His beard astonished the natives and they stepped aside to let him through. Later the Spanish were shown the town of Tumbez, which they immediately realised must indicated a sophisticated society. Pizarro was friendly, however, and gave no indication of his exploitative intentions. (*At the time the Audiencia de Peru probably extended north as far as Ecuador.)

Text page with engraving from a German text edition "Das sechste Theil der nieuwen Welt oder Der Historien Hieron. Benzo von Meylandt. . . Being part VI of the Grand Voyages, which is the last part actually issued by de Bry (Parts VII to XII appeared only after his death).
Part VI contains an engraved title page and 28 plates, probably also engraved by his son, Johann Theodore, from that part of Benzoni’s text, which described the conquest of Peru.
