Description

Striking example of this famous portrait of Athabaliba, the last king of the Incas. Athabaliba is shown in full war dress.

The work appeared in Happel's Thesaurus Exoticorum . . . . Sabin noted: "The greater part of this work, which is a sort of German Coryat, is filled with a history of the wars between Hungary and Turkey, but it has also a special interest for the American collector, as it contains a series of fifteen curious representations of the aborigines of America, all with detailed descriptions of their manners, customs, religion, etc. We find among them representations of the natives of New-France, New-Netherland, Virginia, a King of Florida, Californians, Peruvians, Chilians, Mexicans, etc."
