New World: England’s First View of America
Kim Sloan (au)
In 1585 John White joined a group of Englishmen to found a colony in ‘Virginia’, along the tidewaters of coastal North Carolina. This book reproduces the celebrated but rarely seen Brit. Mus. collection of watercolors made by this gentleman-artist. It also tells the story of his five voyages to ‘Virginia’ and his role as Gov. of the ‘Lost Colony’ of Roanoke, which preceded Capt. John Smith’s more successful settlement at Jamestown 20 years later. Each watercolor is reproduced in color opposite its explanation, supplemented by the famous de Bry engravings, which spread his images throughout Europe, as well as other works by contemporary and later artists. The ensuing chapters place White and his work in their historical, cultural and artistic context.
