Description

Product Description

Antique print Javanese Dance titled ‘CHOREA SEV TRIPV-/DIVM IAVANORVM. 23’.

A rare early 17th century black and white print of a typical Javanese dance somewhat similar to the 20th century Indonesian ‘Line dance’ with men and women dancing in lines opposite each other. The print is by the German engraver and bookseller Theodore De Bry who, in 1598, published the Peregrinationum in Indiam Oriental et Indiam Occidentales, a book of early 16th century voyages and travels. There are two distinct series: the first, the Grand Voyages, published in 1590 covering North and South America, and so-called because its pages are taller and wider than the second, which is called the Petits Voyages – published in 1598 and covering the travels in the East Indies and arctic regions. This print is probably derived from the 1601 Latin edition of the Petits Voyages.

Very good overall condition apart from some faint paper discoloration along the right-hand margin.
