Description

Digital facsimile

"This edition of Spilbergen, though probably first issued separately, forms the eighth part of Hartgert's 'Oost en West-indische voyagien' [collection of travels consisting of 17 parts, each with special t.p. and separate pagination] ... Pages 67-120 comprise the edition of Schouten's 'Journael' ... and is sometimes found separately, though it does not seem probable that it was so issued."--Sabin.
