"Navigantium atque Itinerantium Bibliotheca or, A complete collection of Voyages and Travels, Vol. II., published by John Harris.

Tungusic peoples inhabit Eastern Siberia and are recognized as distinct from Mongols and Turkic peoples. The first European description of a Tungusic people was by the Dutch traveller Isaac Massa in 1612. Such people may have had a role in populating the Americas via the coast and Beiring land bridge, and similarities in dress and features can here be seen.
