Picturing the New World: The Hand-Colored De Bry Engravings of 1590
Picturing the New World: The Hand-Colored De Bry Engravings of 1590. "...Theodore De Bry's engravings of North America provided many Europeans with their first glimpse of the New World. De Bry's illustrated edition of A Briefe and True Report of the New Found Land of Virginia, containing engravings that were based on the watercolors of John White, was published in 1590. The images shown on this site are from a rare hand-colored edition of the book in the North Carolina Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill."
