notes: 
This image is derived from Arnoldus Montanus, De Nieuwe en onbekende Weereld, Amsterdam, 1671 (cf. 01631-65). A prolific writer (mostly of novels), Happel here describes a variety of exotic peoples at the border of Europe. His principal focus is on Islamic peoples, but he does include indigenous peoples of the Americas.
