Title : The inhabitants of the Cape of Good Hope.
Map maker : DE BRY,J.T. / ISRAEL,J..
Date : Frankfurt 1601.
Size : 17.5 x 13.4 inches. / 44.5 x 34.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured

Description :This is the first print to show the inhabitants of the Cape together with Europeans, and one of the first large scale prints of the native peoples of the Cape..
The plate depicts a meeting of the local Cape inhabitants with the Portuguese. The text below reads ? when we slaughtered an ox, they came to ask for its insides, which they ate raw. This is clearly depicted in the print, and apparently this practise stunned the Europeans as the eating of raw intestines was subsequently numerous times depicted in vignettes surrounding the continent maps of Speed, Blaeu and Visscher.
Copy of translation of text included.

A plate (13.5x17.5 340 x 445), from Part III of a German Edition of De Bry?s monumental work Petit Voyages, published in nine parts in Frankfurt am Main from 1601-1633. One of the grandest collections of voyages published in the Age of Discovery, this series is devoted mainly (but not entirely) to the East Indies, and was issued concurrently with the same publishers' Grand Voyages, which are primarily devoted to the Americas.

Condition : Bottom margin trimmed with small paper loss, else fine.

ID: 21564
