Theodore de Bry. America. pt. 2, 1591. Frontispiece, Florida.
This book, by Theodor de Bry, is based on a German-language manuscript documenting an expedition to Florida in 1564. In addition to being a goldsmith, de Bry was an engraver, printmaker, and publisher and made engraved copies after John White's watercolors of scenes of America. These, with his copies after similar works by Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues, are his best-known engravings and were used for illustrations in his publications on American travel. The images in his books, executed in a European style, were a major vehicle through which most Europeans came to view the costumes and customs of Native Americans.
