Johann Wolfgang Heydt’s work entitled ‘Allerneuester Geographisch und Topographischer Schau-Platz Africa und Ost-Indien’ was published in Wilhermsdorf and Nuremburg in 1744 by Johann Carl Teschner and Homann’s Heirs. It described the Dutch factories, settlements and stations at the hands of the East India Company. This view is of Cochin (Kochi) on the Malabar cast of south west India. Engraved by Heydt himself it displays the town and fort with a Dutch vessel anchored offshore. Mendelssohn 2 p. 554.
