New England’s Trials, Declaring the Success of 80 Ships employed thither within these eight yeares
This extremely rare work by Capt. John Smith was published in 1622. Although not of an 18th century interest it certainly has promise for those interested in early American publications. Despite it’s title, the work does not only concern itself with New England as mention is made as to how Smith used these same methods in Virginia. For bibliophiles, this work is reproduced from the second edtion, of which only 5 known copies are extant, while there are no known copies of the first edition still in existence. Small folio pamphlet in printed wrap.
