Full color, exquisite gift book: the new world described with new eyes: Latin-English dual language edition. This lively chronicle is an eyewitness account of American history. Voyage to Maryland (1633) details, through the eyes of Andrew White, S.J., the characters, settings and events of the 17th century expedition that resulted in the founding of the Maryland colony. A Jesuit priest and amateur naturalist, White had a curious nature, keen powers of observation and a vivid literary presentation. Through his unique sensibilities and talents, we are able to experience the wonders and perils -- from the botanical to the spiritual -- of his historic voyage.
Voyage to Maryland stands as a significant document in the classical tradition of the English colonies in North America.
This edition of Father White's Relatio Itineris in Marilandiam is the first English translation in more than a century.
