Spanish soldiers on horseback supervise native Americans who bring gold and silver vessels and statues to a fortified city. Includes vessels, animals such as a lobster, alligator, turtle, trays, and chests made out of precious metals. Also includes a dwelling and fortifications.

Word spread throughout the empire that gold and silver artefacts were to be brought to Cajamarca to pay the king’s ransom. The more the Indians brought, the more the Spanish broke them up and melted them down, in order to pack more into the room. Then the Spanish began complaining that they wanted more gold and it was not coming in fast enough, so Atahualpa told them about the Temple of Coricancha at the Inca capital, Cuzco, whose entire roof was covered with gold tiles. The Spanish knew nothing of this city so the Indians were obliged to guide them there.

Text page with engraving from a German text edition "Das sechste Theil der nieuwen Welt oder Der Historien Hieron. Benzo von Meylandt. . . Being part VI of the Grand Voyages, which is the last part actually issued by de Bry (Parts VII to XII appeared only after his death).
Part VI contains an engraved title page and 28 plates, probably also engraved by his son, Johann Theodore, from that part of Benzoni’s text, which described the conquest of Peru.
