Description :Scarce print with a German text sheet shows Noortís fleet in the Magellan Straits, the Dutch visited an island near Cape Nassau. It was inhabited by Fuegian Indians who threw penguins at the Dutch from a high cliff and shot arrows at them, as they advanced up the beach, before retreating into a cave.
A fierce battle took place at the entrance to this cave and when all the natives had been killed, the Dutch found a number of terrified women and children, even animals at the back of the cave, which was evidently where they had all been living. 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.
