...and the covers from the French, German (both 1791) and Polish (1797) editions of Benyovszky's Memoirs. Editions were also printed in the Netherlands, Sweden, and several different ones in Germany.
An illustration from the 1790 London edition of Benyovszky's Memoirs. This depicts the (probably fictitious) scene of the attack by the St Peter and St Paul on the Formosan islanders.
The cover of August von Kotzebue's 1795 play based on Benyovszky's Memoirs. This play inspired several similar ones, and a few operas for good measure. It is safe to say that it bears absolutely no relation to historical reality. But it played to full houses. Which is important.
