"This view of Negapatan on the south coast of India was published in the 1702 French edition of  Recueil des voyages .... translated from the Dutch 1645 edition of Begin ende voortgangh van de vereenighde Nederlantsche Geoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie, the original collection of travel accounts concerning the Dutch East India Company. The Dutch edition is considered as one of the most important Dutch travel accounts published in the 17th century."
