Notes

The Plates and Text of the ITINERARIO and ICONES, HABITUS GESTUSQUE INDORUM AC LUSITANORUM PER INDIAM VIVENTIUM. With a study by Ernst van den Boogaart. The Roxburghe Club, 1999. The book contains 42 plates and maps, with a separately bound 32 page facsimile of the Icones in a pocket at the back. Elephant folio. London, 1999. The full text in English of Linschotenís monumental work prefaced with Ernst van den Boogartís account of the man and the world in which he lived, illustrated with portraits and maps.

All of the plates and maps of Linschotenís work are reproduced in full size and full colour as well as a facsimile of the very rare Icones et Habitus Indorum that reveals what lies behind Linschotenís Itinerario. This volume is a remarkable production which serves as a fitting monument both to Linschoten and to the collector Harry Oppenheimer, who dies a short while after this book was presented to the Club.
