"A briefe and true report of the
new found land of Virginia."

Volume I of Theodor De Bry's Grand Voyages.


Illustrations after John White. From Theodor De Bry's Grand Voyages, Volume I. [1590]. Copper engravings on small folio sheets with Latin text. Prints with narrow margins, as issued, and some typical wear at edges. Very good condition.

These prints show events during the first English attempt at settlement in North America, the Roanoke colony sponsored by Sir Walter Raleigh. The images are after paintings by John White, who was sent to 'Virginia' by Raleigh specifically to make drawings of this new colony. The text is by Thomas Hariot who was another member of the colony. These images provide a unique and remarkably accurate picture of the Indian culture in the Carolina region at the time of the first contacts of this culture with Europeans.
