ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
A copperplate engraving from Johann Ludwig Gottfriedt¿s Newe Welt vnd americanische Historien (Frankfurt: Bey denen Merianischen Erben, 1655). The second edition of an abridgement of the German text of the Grands Voyages (1590-1634), Newe Welt contains a series of illustrated exploration narratives that were originally published by the de Bry firm. The engravings were made by Theodore de Bry (1528-1598), his sons Johann Israel de Bry (died 1611) and Johann Theodor de Bry (1561-1623?), and other family members. The engravings were not firsthand depictions but rather were based on source material that the de Bry firm obtained for publication. This image is also viewable in the American Journeys online edition of “Newe Welt vnd americanische Historien.”
