recent arrival
Jan Huygen Van Linschoten (c.1563-1611) was a Dutch traveller, historian and Secretary to the Portuguese archbishop in Goa 1583-1588. His experiences were published in the "Itinerario ...", seen as one of the greatest travel books of any period. The book documents much information concerning the Portuguese colonies and their trade at the point when both the Dutch and English maritime trading nations were becoming established and capable of competing for trade, which had, hitherto, been controlled strictly by the Portuguese and Spanish. Portugal's resources - particularly of capable manpower - were extended beyond that available to a geographically small country's limits. The book was first published with Dutch text in 1596 in Amsterdam, with Latin text 1599 and John Wolfe's 1598 English text edition. This portrait is set in an ornate strapwork frame with roundel images of Goa, Mozambique and St. Helena and is printed on the verso of the titlepage for a late edition "Histoire de la Navigation". A little marginal grubbiness but image good and clear.
