The reception of the ambassadors of the Dutch East India Company in China, an illustration from Johan Nieuhof's account of his travels in China with the Dutch East India Company, 1665-7. This example comes from John Ogilby's 'An Embassy from the East India Company of the United Provinces to the Grand Tartar Cham, Emperor of China', first published 1667, using plates from Olfert Dapper's 'Atlas Chinensis' with the English words added to the title. A later edition was published 1698.
