HONDT, Hendrik de.
Aenuysinge van de Stadt Salvador, ende de Baya de todos los Santtos .
1624. Den Haag, c.1625. 300 x 345mm. A good example of the map of the Todos os Santos Bay showing a fleet attacking the city of Salvador. Top left is a plan of the city dated 1624. The map celebrates the capture and sacking of Salvador by a West India Company fleet under Jacob Willekens and Piet Hein, 10th May 1624. Just under a year later the colony was recaptured by a Luso-Spanish fleet under Fadrique Álvarez de Toledo y Mendoza. The map is signed 'Henricus Hondus', the latinised version of Hendrik de Hondt (1573-1650), an engraver and published best known for his book of portraits of artists. 'Pictorum aliquot celebrium praecipue Germaniae inferioris Effigies'. We have used the Dutch name to differentiate him from cartographer Henricus Hondius, son of Jodocus. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
