Europe, by A. Thevet. 1581

André Thevet was a Franciscan monk who travelled extensively in Europe and made a reputed short journey to South America. Upon his return, he records that he sailed along the eastern coast of North America. The experiences he recalls of the New World have attracted much criticism from both his contemporaries and recent historians for their inaccuracy. However, one person seemed impressed, the King of France, Henry III, who bestowed him the honour of Royal Cosmographer.
