Arnoldus Montaus was a 17th-century Dutch historian who is best known today for his description of the Americas and Dutch voyages. However, prior to his work on early American account, he wrote a historical perspective on the earliest inhabitants in Amsterdam and the Amstel River region.

 

‘Beschrijvinge der eerste inwoonders’ as it is called in Dutch, argues against many claims that Gallic Menapii people were the first to settle in Amstelland, instead favoring Germanic tribes as the first to settle in Holland. It also includes a section on Dutch voyages to the Dutch East Indies and Batavia. This 1664 Doornik printing features impressive folding engravings depicting historical scenes.
