Paris: Jean Berjon, 1613.


The multiple editions of Champlain's Voyages form the most lasting textual monument to early French colonization in North America. Filled with navigational detail, images of natives, and maps, the accounts make a case for the permanence of the French presence and contrast French actions with those of the Spanish.
