Histoire de la Virginie

First French edition, another edition in French having appeared in Amsterdam with the same date a little later in the same year, this edition however seems much more up to date. 14 illustrations.
Contemporary brown sheep, spine decorated in compartments. Red morocco titlepiece. Lack to head of upper joint and upper cover. Rubbed, two corners bumped. A half-centimeter-wide strip cut from foot of title.
The first account of Virginia written by a native of the young colony. An account of the colony and trade, and study of the Native Americans, their habits and costumes. This is considered to be the best contemporary account of the Native Americans, distinguished by its free and original style and humorous commentary, especially on the plantation owners of South Virginia.
