Capt. John Smith’s Adventures in Early Virginia

A beautiful engraving of the five times Captain John Smith almost died at Jamestown, Virginia. The bottom right shows Pocahontas, famously, saving his life. This engraving was a part of his 2 volume series “The Travels, Adventures, and Observations of Captaine John Smith”.Published in 1629, it was reprinted once in Richmond, VA in 1819. This is the reprint. Originally, this engraving would have been folded up inside the pages. Some folds and staining from the book can be seen. However, they are not as noticeable as seen in the pictures above. The two overall pictures are the most accurate for color. The visible part of the engraving is 11″ by 14″ and the frame is 18 1/2″ by 25 5/8″. This image is in excellent condition. It has been framed in acid free paper with antiglare glass. Richmond, VA. Circa 1819.

Price: $1595
