Description :In the Indies there are many delightful plants, which include the ‘costus indicus’ (named by the Malays 'pucho') that has a wonderful aroma. Then there is the ‘calamus aromaticus’, known as ‘diringuo’ that is common in Sunda. Next shown is the 'long pepper' from Java, called 'chiabe'. This kind of pepper is chosen by upper-class inhabitants in preference to the 'round pepper', because it is considered more health-giving. Lastly shown is the 'zerumbeth', called 'canior' by the Malays and Javanese, and this is dried and sent to China.
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.
