Newe Welt vnd americanische Historien is the second edition of an abridgement of the German text of the Grands Voyages, a series of illustrated exploration narratives that were originally published 1590-1634 by the de Bry firm. The copperplate engravings were made by Theodore de Bry (1528-1598), his sons Johann Israel de Bry (died 1611) and Johann Theodor de Bry (1561-1623?), and other family members. The engravings were not firsthand depictions but rather were based on source material that the de Bry firm obtained for publication.
