Description: [KELLER, GEORG.] Cotrafactur der grossen Peffer Handell Statt Bamtam in der Insel Iava gelegen, davor die Hollendische Schiffart Komem: Und Was innen aldar Von den inwonern Begegenett, als durch die Buchstaen in der Historia erkleret Wirdt, Anno 1597. Engraved broadside view depicting the Dutch Fleet entering a pepper port in Bantam. 10x12 1/2 inches sheet size; margins skillfully extended, few small areas strengthened on verso. [Frankfort?, 1597]

Notes: The Dutch East India Company''s arrival in Bantam in 1596 begat an unprecedented era of pepper trade out of the Kingdom of Western Java and Sumatra. The events represented in this engraving depict what would have been some of the earliest endeavors to establish trade and supply of such exotic spices to the ravenous inclinations of their European consumers.
