Ships from Madura and Ternate.

The second Dutch expedition to the Indies, led by Jacob van Neck and Wijbrant van Warwijck, set sail from the Dutch Republic in May 1598 and arrived in Bantam, on West Java, towards the end of that same year. From Bantam, four vessels sailed on to the Moluccas, visiting East Java along the way. This print shows two war vessels the ships encountered on this trip: a Maduran war ship and a Ternaten kora-kora.

In the centre of the print: No: 17.

The print features a key numbered A through C, with explanatory notes.
