The Duch, the Jesuits, and the King of Golconda-- c.1630's
Source: ebay, Oct. 2001
"In the distance the king of Golconda rides in the company of his courtiers; nearer to us a more disturbing drama is enacted. Three Netherlanders at right look on with apparent satisfaction, as a man identified as a Jesuit is seized and apparently stabbed in front of a toll house. The details of the event recorded in this vivid scene are unfortunately lacking; it comes from a publication, probably of the 1630s, of the Dutch East India company. An image of a Jesuit receiving rough justice in the presence of the arch-enemy Protestant Dutch traders; filled with exotic detail and modern polemics. A generally good impression on paper that is crisp and sound."
