Two young princes receive the blessing

Drawing from the manuscript of the VOC servant Adrianus Canter Visscher with twenty-eight Indian miniatures and two maps of places on the Coromandel Coast in the back. The text consists of two parts: a history of the Mughal Empire and the VOC settlements on the Coromandel Coast; this is followed by an advice to the Heren XVII about the economic situation of the VOC in the Coromandel.
