Vue et description de la Ville de Meaco Capitale du Japon.
Selling price: $600
Sold in 2014
Other parts show among other things the town of Osaka and the island of Deshima, the Dutch V.O.C. settlement from where they were permitted to trade with Japan. Bird's-eye view of Deshima copied from an illustration in the book by Montanus (1669). The island is depicted from the land-side.
We see to the right, where a broad flight of steps leads to the sea, two sets of doors standing open. This is the Watergate. In the center at the bottom the guardhouse is visible, the Landgate. The bridge on the print must still be the wooden drawbridge, as the stone bridge dates from 1678. The two streets which cross here will soon become a T-junction. Close to the Land-gate stands the venditiehuisje , or Auction House, where the goods for sale were set out. This building was paid for by the Dutch factory. The fire proof warehouses Doorn and Lelij, built in 1666 and 1672, are not yet visible here, so the situation as depicted here must date from before 1666. The Company garden is as yet small and the flower beds circular. The residence from which plumes of smoke are rising is the central kitchen.
