An interesting sheet composed of 14 vignettes showing the native Virginians that the first European explorers encountered in the New World, taken from Theodore de Bry's influential work. Included are ceremonial dances, burial practices, farming, hunting, villages, costumes, etc. Each engraving is accompanied by an explanation in French text.
Condition Description: A nice example with red-lined edges, an archivally repaired centerfold separation that enters 1/2" into text at bottom, and a minor crease at top right, well away from the image.
