|Jean de Léry,|
Histoire d'un voyage fait en la terre du Bresil, autrement dite Amerique...
Geneva: For the heirs of Eustache Vignon, 1594.
|Léry, a French Protestant, accompanied an ill-fated French colonial expedition to Brazil. His popular account of the voyage (first edition, 1578) contains extended descriptions of the Tupinamba Indians. The illustrations, however, reflect classical and medieval traditions, not New World realities.|
