From Bantam, four vessels sailed on to the Moluccas, under the command of Wijbrant van Warwijck and Jacob van Heemskerck. En route, they passed East Java, where they were received at the court of the ruler of Tuban.Please contact Universiteitsbibliotheek / Universiteit van Amsterdam for reuse and copyrights.
