Caption: Pineapple plant (Ananas, left) and banana tree (Musa, centre), 17th century. This depiction of tropical fruits is from a 1668 account by the Dutch traveller Johan Nieuhof (1618-1672) of his travels in China and south-eastern Asia. Nieuhof travelled in Brazil in the 1640s and China in the 1650s, and then worked for the Dutch East India Company in the 1660s. Many translations were published of his accounts of his travels in Brazil, India and China. This artwork is from 'Legatio batavica' (1668).
