Udienza data agli Olandesi dal Re di Congo

Description

"Audience Given to the Dutch by the King of Congo" (caption translation). This image depicts the king of Kongo on his throne surrounding Dutch traders in the Kwanza North region. Giulio Ferrario (1767-1847) never went to African but produced volumes aimed at the "encyclopedic" organization of disparate knowledge as "entertainment" in the exotic and the different. This image appears to be derived from one edition or another of Dapper (e.g., 1668, 1686). See image B019.
