Reception of Dutch sailors at Cermentin.
This plate is taken from a French edition of the 'Itinerario' by Jan Huygen van Linschoten. The illustration itself is however a copy of a plate contained in 'Indiae Orientalis', part II, by the brothers De Bry of Frankfurt.
According to P.A. Tiele's 'Memoire bibliographique', this edition was not printed in Amsterdam but by the Frankfurt publisher of De Bry's travels.
The text does not give a date for this voyage, and it is not the journey undertaken by Van Linschoten.
Cermentin could refer to Cormantin in Ghana.Please contact Universiteitsbibliotheek / Universiteit van Amsterdam for reuse and copyrights.
