Description:

John Smith (c. January 1580 ¿ June 21, 1631) ¿Virginia¿ London, John Dawson and John Haviland for Michael Sparke, c. 1625 State 9 Engraving 13 5/8¿ x 16 ¾¿ (sheet size) Framed to full museum specifications In 1606, the London Company sent its first ship to Virginia establishing the Jamestown settlement. Over the next few years, Captain John Smith explored the major rivers which flowed west into the Chesapeake Bay and recorded the names of the Native American tribes and villages along his journey. Interestingly, Burden notes that ¿to this day the map is still used by archaeologists to locate native Indian villages. It records 166 of them, and is remarkably detailed." The illustrations of Powhatan¿s Council and a Susquehanna Indian that grace the upper quadrants of the map are taken from the original drawings of John White. Upon Smith's return to England, William Hole was hired to engrave the Smith map, which was first included in a small pamphlet by Joseph Barnes of Oxford in 1612. The map would not appear again for 12 years in his landmark work, The Generall Historie of Virginia, New-England, and the Summer Isles, in 1624. A year later, it was included in Purchas His Pilgrimes. Smith was elected first to the Council of Virginia, and then became President of the Council. Through his management, he did much to ensure the survival of the colony, but his major contribution was surely his account of the colony, published as A Map of Virginia. With a description of the Country, containing this map, which served as an important promotional document in securing support and new settlers for the colony. Within the printed map Smith marks the extent of his expeditions, with crosses, and the note "to the crosses hath been discovered, what is beyond is by relation". The map spans through eleven states appearing over the period of some twenty years. The early states are unobtainable. Most of the states have only bibliographic alterations (dates, page numbers and such like) but this ninth state includes some new names including the insertion of "Washeborne C:" on the Cape Charles peninsula, "Blands C." and "Downes dale" in the interior, while "Bollers bush" has been altered to "Boolers bush". Such was the importance of the map that it remained the prototype map of the Virginia Colony used by all successive mapmakers into the 1670s. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Mariner Books, 2016. Taschenbuch. Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Sehr gut leichte Lagerspuren - 'Daring . . . Vincent's psychological approach is intriguing.' - USA Today 'Vincent is a sensitive recorder of a mind's movements as it shifts in and out of inspiration, and as it fights before submitting to despair.' - New York Times Book Review With poetic precision and psychological acuity, Norah Vincent's Adeline reimagines the events that brought Woolf to the banks of the River Ouse, offering us a denouement worthy of its protaganist. Channeling Virginia and Leonard Woolf, T. S. and Vivienne Eliot, Lytton Strachey, and Dora Carrington, Vincent lays bare their genius and their blind spots, their achievements and their failings, from the inside out. And haunting every page is Adeline, the name given to Virginia Stephen at birth, which becomes the source of Virginia's greatest consolation, and her greatest torment. Intellectually and emotionally disarming, Adeline- a vibrant portrait of Woolf and her social circle, the storied Bloomsbury group, and a window into the darkness that both inspired and doomed them all-is a masterpiece in its own right by one of our most brilliant and daring writers. 'Skillfully rendered and emotionally insightful.' - Publishers Weekly '[An] electrifyingly good novel . . . by a master of discomfort.' - New Statesman 288 pp. Englisch.
