About This Item

Duell, Sloan & Pearce, NY, 1946. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine/No Jacket. "Eye witness accounts, vivid and exciting, breathing the freshness of the events, give a clear impression of what life here was like - only seventy years after Columbus landed. But the most fascinating are the illustrations - the first pictures of America... There are sixty-four watercolors - all reproduced in their original colors... [P]ictures made... thirty-five years before the PIlgrims disembarked on the shores of Massachusetts are the earliest authenic representations..." [Dust Jacket] The book consists of five sections: 'John Whites's watercolors'; 'De Bry's engravings'; and,'Thomas Harriot's representations'; and eyewitness accounts from Le Moyne, Le Challeux, Barlowe, Lane and John White. Minor fading to spine. Larger format. [Please check shipping cost for larger format books and multi-volume sets.] STATED FIRST EDITION.
