The Portraictuer of Captayne John Smith, Admirall of New England
This engraved portrait of Captain John Smith, identified here as "Admirall of New England," is a detail from a map of New England that was included in Smith's book The Generall Historie of Virginia, New-England, and the Summer Isles (1624). The same map and portrait had appeared in an earlier work by Smith, A Description of New England (1616). The caption beneath the image praises Smith for his "Faire-Discoveries and Fowle-Overthrowes Of Salvages, much Civilliz'd by thee."
