= Tiele 990 (note); cf. Rouffaer/ Muller I, p.55 (ed. 1775); Mendelssohn II, p.279; Landwehr VOC, 284 (note). Modernised edition (first published 1676) of Wouter Schouten's popular voyage to the Dutch East Indies, containing the same plates as the first edition, but some re-engraved. The map present in our copy: "Nieuwe en Nette Zee-Kaart van de Geheele Waereldt, Toonende de Afwykingen van het Kompas (...) Gemaakt onder 't opzigt van Kapt. Edm. Halley" not called for by Tiele or Landwehr (it was added to the 1775 and 1780 editions of Schouten's travels, but with "O. Lindeman in Almelo fecit 1775"). Howgego S66: "Schouten was an observant traveller who explored inland into the environs of nearly every port-of-call, sometimes by himself or with a small group of comrades. His narrative, full of anecdotes as well as information gleaned about countries he had not visited, became particularly popular with readers in the eighteenth century, when it was republished in no fewer than seven editions."

"Struys, 'un aventurier neerlandais', produced a very interesting and lively account of his three voyages. The plates illustrate mostly sites in Persia and the East. Three plates refer to the Archipelago: Tenos (i.e. Tenedos), Pathmos and Delfos (i.e. Delos). Struys obviously had not actually seen Delos; he confuses Delos with Delphi and describes Mt. Parnassus as being on an island in the Aegean" (Blackmer Sale). "However, Struys kept no diary, so that by the time his narrative was finally published in 1676, his fanciful imagination had somewhat distorted the reality behind his journey. At sea he experienced typhoons, shipwrecks, hunger and captivity, and was several times sold as a slave, a misfortune always guaranteed to delight a seventeenth-century audience" (Howgego).
