From: Dritter Theil Indiae Orientalis, Darinnen erstlich das ander Theile der Schiff-fahrten Joann Huygens von Linschotten ausz Hollandt, so er in Orient gethan, begriffen... An Tag geben, durch Jo. Theodor und Jo. Israel de Bry, Gebrüder.. Frankfurt, 1599. (Petits Voyages - Small Voyages).

The pioneer voyage by the Dutch to Southeast Asia took place in the years 1595-97 under the leadership of Cornelis De Houtman. He established several commercial relations, e.g. with the great pepper port of Banten on the north west coast of Java, near which the Dutch colony of Batavia would soon be founded. This expedition gave Holland first-hand data about the Sunda Strait, the northern coast of Java, and the island of Bali.
News of this voyage was related in several works. Most important was the Historie van Indien, published by Cornelis Claesz in 1598. The book was supposed to contain a new general map of Southeast Asia but it didn't: it was forbidden.
The forbidden map was published by Claesz later the same year as a loose-sheet and a year later, de Bry published the account of the voyage together with a general over view map and other maps. This is the overview map.
