A drawing from the manuscript of Sultan Conrom, Adrianus Canter Visscher, a servant of the Dutch East India Company. It contains twenty-eight Indian miniatures and two maps of places on the Coromandel coast. The text consists of two parts: a history of the Mogul Empire and the branches of the Dutch East India Company on the Coromandel coast. This is followed by a recommendation to the directors of the company on its economic situation in the Coromandel.
