  • Constitutes a hybrid of the eighth part, first and second issues of the first Latin edition of Theodor de Bry's Great voyages, printed in fourteen parts, in Latin, German, French, and English, in Frankfurt am Main, Oppenheim, and Hanau from 1590-1644, and the Elenchus, an outline of the thirteen Latin parts, published by Matthias Merian in Frankfurt am Main in 1634
  • This work has been identified as a hybrid of the first and second issues of part eight of the first Latin edition of the Great voyages by Church
  • Imprint from letterpress tite page to plates, p. [2-3], 4th count
  • The first issue of the first edition of Latin part eight can be identified by the missigned leaf 2A2 as A2, and by a lack of a small copperplate mappa mundi at the foot of p. 78, 2nd count, and the same of the mare del nort on p. 3, 3rd count; plates VI, VII, VIII, and IX lack the index numbers printed in the plates; in the course of printing plates XIII and XIIII were transposed, but the correct illustrations have been cut out and pasted in their proper places; gathering 2K, p. 71-77, 2nd count, has 2K1 printed as 2R1 and had the ink scratched out to correct the signature mark, and 2K3 is misigned 2R3
  • The second issue of the first edition of Latin part eight can be identified by leaf 2A2 being corrected [possibly to ):(2, though Church does not mention exactly how it is signed], and by the inclusion of a small copperplate mappa mundi at the foot of p. 78, 2nd count, and the same of the mare del nort on p. 3, 3rd count; plates VI, VII, VIII, and IX include the index numbers printed in the plates, and plates XIII and XIIII are correctly printed; gathering 2K, p. 71-77, 2nd count, has 2K1 printed correctly but 2K3 still misigned 2R3

  • This part contains relations of six different voyages; three by Drake, one by Candish or Cavendish, and two by Sir Walter Raleigh. Drake's first voyage (p. 3-16) took place in 1577-1580. No description of it had previously been published. This account, from which de Bry, and later Hakluyt, published it in Latin and English respectively, was written by Niño de Sylva, a Portuguese. The second voyage of Drake (p. 17-32) around the world was finished in 1585. De Bry's account is based upon that of Thomas Cates. Drake's third voyage (p. 33-44), directed against the Spanish at Panama, took place in 1595-1596. This account is taken from his log-book of the expedition, which was continued by his men. Thomas Candish, or Cavendish, circumnavigated the world in 1586-1588. An account of the voyage was written in English by Thomas [i.e. Francis] Pretty who accompanied him. It was published by Hakluyt. De Bry's narrative appears to have been based upon a manuscript account of Pretty's relation. The first voyage of Sir Walter Raleigh was undertaken in 1595, during which he visited Guiana. He himself published an account of it in London in 1596. The second voyage, attributed to Raleigh, does not appear to have been made by him, but by Laurent Keymis, a companion of the voyage of 1595, who set out for Guiana in 1596. On his return he wrote a description of his voyage which was published in London in the same year. Cf. Church
