Description :Two engravings.  On 29th May, 1615, Spilbergen’s fleet anchored further north, off an island called Santa María that was separated by a narrow stretch of water (A), from Punta Lavapié on the mainland. Four of the ships (I) anchored in the bay, while the fifth (H) anchored closer. The Dutch went ashore in small boats (F), where they saw Spanish soldiers on horseback (B), so they arranged themselves for battle (C). There were several confrontations (E), during which many Dutchmen died but they still managed to burn the town of Santa María in the process (D).
 Spilbergen’s fleet anchored off the island of Mocha on 24th April 1615, fifteen years after Noort’s landing. The crew went ashore in several small rowing boats (A), and offered to barter with the Indians for axes and knives (B). The locals, who were simply dressed (K), brought fruit, chicken and sheep (G)*. Later the Dutch entertained the inhabitants of the island on the beach with music, played with flutes and drums (D). While four of the ships anchored some distance off-shore (I), one of them came in (H), in case of danger.
The sheep had humps on their backs, like camels, but were probably llamas or alpacas
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.
