Description

Antique print of Ambon by De Bry titled ‘Amboyna, M. Ganapus, I. Nera’.

A rare early 17th century black and white print showing the volcanic island of Ambon, above a view of Nera island in the nutmeg and mace-producing Banda Islands in the South Moluccas with Mount Ganapus erupting to the west and a view of Fort Belgica in the foreground. The print has half a page of German black Gothic script below the two views and the same script on the verso and 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 1606 German edition of the Petits Voyages.

Very good overall condition; measures 154 x 183 mm.
