WIC - BRAZIL -- VOORT-GANGH Vande West-Indische Compagnie, Dat is Levendigh Discours, Duydelijck ende krachtelijck verthoonende, hoe nootwendigh ende profitelijck voor den staet vande Landen in het gemeen, ende allerleye Inwoonders in het particulier, zij den voortgangh vande langh gewenschte West-Indische Compagnie, ende met wat vlijt ende eernst, elck Patriot, nae sijn vermoghen, moet helpen arbeyden, om de selve metten eersten in treyn te doen brenghen. Amst., M.J. Brandt, 1623. (20) pp. W. woodcut on ti.-p. 4°. Cont. pale pink paper over modern brds.

This copy - not in the NCC/Worldcat!? - has a variant woodcut illustration on the title-page whereas the edition recorded in the reference works has an engraved illustration (see previous lot) with an inscription such as called for by Asher 100, a.o. We came across another publication without an illustration, so there must be at least three editions. This copy once owned by the famous historian Ubbo Emmius (1547-1625): on the front side in ink "Sum Ubbonis Emmii" which is repeated below the address on the title-page. - Borba de Moraes p. 926 (not mentioning this edition); Asher 100 (other edition); Knuttel 3426 (other edition).
