CULTURAL READINGS: Colonization & Print in the Americas


Grynaeus and Huttich
Jay I. Kislak Foundation
Simon Grynaeus and Johann Huttich,
Novis orbis regionum ac insularum veteribus incognitarum.

Basle: Johann Hervagius, 1532.

Huttich compiled and Grynaeus edited this early anthology of travel relations, including the letters of Columbus and Vespucci and the decades of Peter Martyr. In his preface, Grynaeus stresses the utility of bringing these accounts together in one volume, and in Latin, so that readers might conveniently compare various descriptions of New World lands and peoples.
