Description:

Map extending from the east coast of Africa to Western Australia, noting the discoveries of William Dampier at Shark Bay.

The Dutch trading activities in the Indian Ocean, primarily based on the spice trade centred around Goa, the Portuguese occupied fort city on the west coast of India. Later the Dutch occupied Ceylon and then ventured further to Malacca and finally discovered the route to the Moluccas Islands. Also known as the spice islands these were the only known source of Nutmeg and Mace, making them a highly valued prize. Australia’s west coast shown with Shark Bay named.

Biography:

 The engravings are by or after Luycken (Luyken), Elgier, Picart, Goeree, and others.  Not a full Bible in the usual sense, Mortier presents the books of the Bible through his illustrations, each accompanied by a short telling of the story in standard prose. The fine, large engravings were produced by or from the works of several masters. Many were later reproduced and used again in later and lesser bibles, in most case significantly reduced.
