Notes
  • This is the second printed volume of Champlain's voyages, and contains the journals, maps, etc. of its author's four voyages to America, in 1604, 1610, 1611, and 1613, the latter of which is not mentioned on the title-page. The volume deals very fully with the natural history of the country, its soil, and products, and is especially minute in its description of the manners, customs, and habits of the Indians.
  • First edition -- Cf. Church, entry 360.
  • The last 52 pages are a work not mentioned on the title page but always found with this volume. It has separate pagination, separate signatures, and a half-title which reads: Quatriesme voyage du Sr de Champlain capitaine ordinaire pour le Roy en la marine, et Lieutenant de Monseigneur le Prince de Condé en la Nouuelle France, fait en l'annee 1613.
