Description: Antique print titled 'Loge des Anglois a Suratte'. Antique print with two engravings depicting various palm trees and the factory (logie) of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in Suratte as seen in 1638. Suratte or Soeratte was a famous trading city on the north coast of what is now India, in the modern state of Gujarat, lying on the river Tapti. This print originates from ‘Les Voyages du sieur Albert de Mandelslo’ published by Pierre van der Aa.
