Sabin 30680. Bartlett, Bibliotheca Americana, Vol. II., pp. 261--2 says: “This extraordinary Collection of Voyages is sometimes called the ‘Dutch De Bry’ or the ‘Dutch Hulsius’; for in beauty of execution and intrinsic interest it rivals both of those famous collections. In point of rarity there is no comparison: this being scarcely known to bibliographers. How many parts Hartgerts published is even now uncertain, although the most active research has been made by collectors of Voyages and Travels for many years. The parts were probably issued and sold separately, and their collection into sets, with a collective title, preface etc., was an afterthought. This collection has an advantage over De Bry and Hulsius, that many of the voyages are in the language in which they were originally written, while most of those by De Bry and Hulsius are translations.” The preliminary leaves contain: Engraved general title, with inscription “Oost en Westindische Voyagien: met de Beschrijvingen van Indien”; printed general title; and 20 pages of preface and list of contents.
