A ilha e cidade de Goa metropolitana da India e partes orientais : que esta en 15 graos da banda do norte

An aerial view of the city of Goa, which was the centre of Portugal's Indian Empire and spice trade. Numerous ships occupy the foreground, and the upper part of the engraving is entirely taken up by strapwork cartouches containing the Portuguese and Goan coats of arms, title, dedication to Albert of Austia and a key to sites in the city. This plate was engraved by Baptist van Doetechum and is from Linschoten's "Itinerario", which was a manual for sailing to the East Indies, based on Linschoten's own experiences and secret Portuguese guides. -- Dealer's description.
