Eberhard Werner Happel (b. Thomas von Wiering in Hamburg) produced several fascinating compilations, including his Thesaurus Exoticorum. Oder eine mit Aussländischen Raritäten und Geschichten Wohlversehene Schatz-Kammer Fürstellend  die Asiatische, Africanische und Americanische  Nationes . . . . , published in Hamburg in 1688. 

Sabin (30279) notes:  "The greater part of this work, which is a sort of German Coryat, is filled with a history of the wars between Hungary and Turkey, but it has also a special interest for the American collector, as it contains a series of fifteen curious representations of the aborigines of America, all with detailed descriptions of their manners, customs, religion, etc. We find among them representations of the natives of New-France, New-Netherland, Virginia, a King of Florida, Californians, Peruvians, Chilians, Mexicans, etc."
