About this Item

(12 1/4 x 8 3/4 inches). [2],61,[1]pp., including twenty-five in-text engravings and two full-page engraved maps. Expertly bound to style in full mottled calf, spine with raised bands, lettered in the second compartment, the others with an overall decoration in gilt Second French edition, following the first French printing of 1602. Van Noort, a former innkeeper in Rotterdam sponsored by a group of Dutch merchants, accomplished the fourth circumnavigation of the globe after Magellan, Drake, and Cavendish. He was the first Dutch explorer to do so, making the trip from 1598 to 1601. The voyage was particularly arduous. Half the crew mutinied, his ships were constantly harassed, and most of those that didn't mutiny perished from disease. He returned to Holland "with only one battered ship and eight crew left (although some accounts suggest that forty-five crew survived). His voyage contributed little to the geographical knowledge of the time but had some effect in opening the way to the establishment of the Dutch in the East Indies.Van Noort's achievement, however, captured the imagination of his countrymen, and the published accounts sold well, the first appearing only eighteen days after his return. A more complete edition appeared later that year, followed by two amended editions in 1602" (Howgego). Howgego N37; European Americana 610/79; Sabin 55438; Borba de Moraes II:103;Tiele 806.
