The Dutch edition, complete with the map and the engraved title has always been rare. Harisse, notes,179. See Bell, Jesuit Relations, p. 263 in which both the title and engraved title are reproduced. The engraved title and plates are the same and are all signed by the engraver, I. Van Vianen, but the captions are in Dutch; the map is identical with that of the French edition.
