Itinerario





From the Dutchman J.H. Linschoten's East Indian travel account entitled Itinerario, printet in Amsterdam in 1596 with a wealth of illustrations and maps. This beautifully coloured copy from The Royal Library is extremely well preserved. Linschoten spent a number of years in the Portuguese trading colony of Goa on the west coast of India. Here a scene with distinguished Chinese mandarins.
