BARTRAM, WILLIAM. Bartram's Travels is partly reprinted in The Wonderful Magazine and Marvellous Chronicle, vol. 5, pp. 313-323, 355-366, London, n. d. 8vo.

The number of the editions, the extensive use made of it by historians, and its constantly increasing market value are evidences of the high character of Bartram's work, all of which is merited. His journeys covered a wide territory, he was eager for knowledge and observant, and his writings preserve incidents, scenes, and pictures of the times and the savage tribes which are of the greatest value.

The original edition of 1586 is very rare.

"The narratives of the three voyages of Jean Ribaut, first published in 1586, contain the earliest accounts of the Indians of Florida, except such as are found in the Relacion of Cabeca de Vaca. In one respect, at least, it relieves the ferocity charged upon the savages by most writers, by its narration of the horrible massacre perpetrated on the French by the fiend Menendez, whose name he consigned to infamy, as his soul is to perdition."--Field's Indian Bibliography, p. 24.
