Rare first edition of the fourteenth part of Hulsius's voyage anthology, a translation into German of Captain John Smith's Description of New England (London, 1616; Church 369), which includes an early copy of Smith's map of New England. Goodspeed (1927) claims that this part of Hulsius's Sammlung von Sechs und Zwanzig Schiffarten, inspired by the success of the more lavish de Bry series, appears to be "one of the rarest of the Collection."
