Fine plan of the Dutch fortress on Ambon Island which is part of the Maluku Islands of Indonesia. The island has an area of 775 km2 (299 sq mi).
From the French reissue of the account of early Dutch voyages first published in 1608 by Commelin. The French translation was carried out by René Augustin Constantin de Renneville, entitled Recueil des voiages qui ont servi à l'établissement & aux progrès de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales formée dans les Provinces-Unies des Païs-Bas. . .. Tome 3 Page 326.

In 1513, the Portuguese were the first Europeans to land in Ambon, and it became the new centre for Portuguese activities in Maluku following their expulsion from Ternate.
The Portuguese were dispossessed by the Dutch in 1605, when Steven van der Hagen took over the fort without a single shot. Ambon was the headquarters of the Dutch East India Company (V.O.C.) from 1610 to 1619 until the founding of Batavia (now Jakarta) by the Dutch.
