Admiranda narratio fida tamen, de commodis et incolarum ritibus Virginiae.
Frankfurt: Theodor de Bry, 1590.
|This is the first in de Bry's series of translations of accounts of the New World, famous mainly for their engravings. For the volume on Virginia, de Bry chose Thomas Hariot's account of the ill-fated Roanoke colony, led by Sir Walter Raleigh. De Bry's Virginia is a classical site, framed by non-threatening, statuesque Indians.|
