Description

Frankfurt; Probably based on drawing of John White: Van der Ankunfft du Engellender [The Arrival of the Englishman in Virginia]. Issued in four languages in 1590, the German edition of De Bry's Grands Voyages, Part I, also appeared in 1600 and 1620. This pictorial map represents the first English voyage sent by Walter Raleigh to select a suitable landing site. The two leading ships are shown nearing an Indian village on Roanoke Island. The map shows the area between Cape Hatteras and Knott Island in Currituck Sound. --From This New Founde Lande: The Henry & Kaye Spalding Map Collection at Hampden-Sydney College, 2008.
