Probably a view of Argijn

Post, Frans / Brosterhuisen, Jan van

Probably a view of Argijn. -Arx Archijn.

The print is in the same style as those in Casper Barlaeus' book, 'Rerum per octennium in Brasilia', Amsterdam 1647, but is not however included in the book.

It is unclear which town is depicted, but it is possibly Argijn in West Africa.

Key: A. Arx. / B. Nigritaru Urbs. / C. Insula et mins, unde Arcem impetivimus / D. Mare.
