Under the command of Jacob Cornelisz van Neck, eight Dutch ships set sail to the Indies in 1598. The first four returned from Bantam (Java) a year later, on 19 July 1599. The other ships had sailed on to the Moluccas (Maluku Islands). They too returned safe and sound, laden with nutmeg, mace and cloves.
