This section of volume two is called Voiage des Hollandois autour du monde, sous la conduite du Général Olivier de Noort, par le Détroit de Magellan. Van Noort's ships passed Cape Desire or Deseado into the South Sea (Pacific Ocean) on February 28, 1600. The number of men, originally 248, was now only 147, and the ship Henry Frederick was lost in going through the staits. Between 1598 and 1601 Oliver van Noort led four Dutch ships sponsored by Dutch merchants on a voyage through the Straits of Magellan. Their purpose was to cause trouble to the Spanish with whom they were at war, to create commerce, and if possible, to circumnavigate the globe. Only one of the ships completed the circumnavigation.
Acquired before 1927.
