Caption: Cormorant on a coast in China, 17th century artwork. Cormorants are coastal seabirds that feed on fish, and are found worldwide. Called a Louwa bird in the title, this is an engraving from a book by the Dutch writer and explorer Johan Nieuhof (1618-1672). The book was titled An embassy from the East-India Company of the United Provinces to the Grand Tartar Cham, Emperor of China, and told of Nieuhof's travels to India and China. This artwork is from the English translation, published in 1669.
