Abstract
The dissertation deals with the textual legacy of Dutch Brazil in four 17th-century Dutch publications. The chosen descriptions not only demonstrate the Dutch impact on Brazil, but were in their turn products of a particular Dutch approach whereby the colony was appropriated and understood through descriptions, or what will be referred to as the comprehension of Dutch Brazil.
