This engraving is based on the original painting by Johannes Vingboons (1616–1670) painted in c.1665 which is in the Nationaal Archief, Netherlands (Accession No: NL-HaNA_4.VELH_619.67). This was then first issued as an engraving in Francois Valentyn’s accounts of the Dutch East India Company;  Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indien, vervattende een naaukeurige en uitvoerige verhandelinge van Nederlands Mogentheyd in die gewesten, benevens eene wydlustige beschryving der Moluccos, Amboina, Banda, Timor, en Solor, Java .

Our example of the same view is in reverse to Vingboon’s painting.
