Samuel Purchas (1577?-1626). "A Learned English divine, and compiler of a valuable collection of travels... educated at Cambridge. In 1604 he was instituted vicar of Eastwood in Essex, but, leaving the cure of it to his brother, removed to London, the better to carry on the great work he had undertaken. He published the first volume in 1613, and the four last in 1625... His Pilgrimages, and the learned Hackluyt's Voyages, led the way to all other collections of that kind, and have been justly valued and esteemed."--McClintock & Strong: Cycl Bibl Theol & Eccl Lit., VIII:794. This volume, though published first in 1613, in its 4th edition of 1626, always accompanies and forms the 5th volume of the authors 4 volume work published in 1625. Sabin: Dict. Books Relating to America #66680. This work "is an entirely different work from his larger collection of 'Pilgrimes," of which the fourth edition of this forms a fifth or supplementary volume. The distinction between the two works is explained by the author himself in the dedication prefixed to the fourth edition of the 'Pilgrimage' in the following words: 'I had pleased his Majestie to enquire further into the different scope of my Pilgrimage, & my then presented Pilgrims, which here also for the Reader's sake I think fit to answer; that These Brethren holdin much resemblance in name, nature and feature, yet differ both in object and subject: This being mine owne in matter (though borrowed) and in some of words and method. Whereas my Pilgrims are the Authors themselves, acting their owne parts in their owne words, onely furnished by me with such necessaries as that stage further required, and ordered according to my rules,' etc. The following parts relate to America: 'Relations of the Discoveries, Regions and Religions, of the New World. Of New France, Virginia, Florida; New Spaine, with other Regions of America, Mexicana, and of their Regions, and Religions, of the New World. Of Cvmana, Gviana, Brasil, Chica, Chilli, Perv, And other regions of America, Pervviana, and of their Religions.'"--quote from Sabin #66678. We offer the second edition, with an enlarged chapter on America.
