A propos de cet article

Oxford: Printed for William Turner and Robert Allott, 1631. Thick 8vo. Orig. full old calf (spine extremities & corner points worn but holding) with the remains of a paper titling-label on spine. (xx, 810pp.). With engrv. architectural title-page (aged & chipped at edges), head & tail-piece vignettes, and dec. chapter initials. Text aged and toned. A complete copy of this important book, with contemp. manuscript annots & notes on both the front fly-leaf as well as the rear endpaper, on which appears a five-line verse in a clear hand, quoting "Sr. Fr. Bacon Essayos c. of prophecyos". NOTE: An uncommon and scarce early English travel work in which Heylin (1600-1662) describes one of the earliest accounts of America, whose name he disapproves, favouring the name 'A New World'. The work, which first appeared in 1621, is considered an important milestone in the history of geographical or travel writing, representing European knowledge of the rest of the world at the beginning of the 17th century.
