"Gosnold first made land at York Harbor, May 14 1602. There
were two impressions of this tract in 1602. Three copies of the first
are believed to exist. One is in the John Carter Brown Library at
Providence. A copy brought 265 in 1886. The second impression
contains twenty-four additional pages of 'Inducements,' and a copy
now in the Lenox Library was sold at the Barlow auction in 1890
for $1,125." Williamson.

"A work of the greatest rarity. Jadis' copy sold for 5, 153. 6d.
Reprint made : Mass. Hist. Soc. Coll., 3d Ser. VIII., 83-123." Sabin.

In 1602 Capt. Bartholomew Gosnold and 32 Englishmen sailed
from Falmouth to examine and explore "the North parts of Vir-
ginia," and with him sailed John Brereton. The expedition sailed in
March and returned in July, and between these dates they landed at
Cape Cod and explored the coast and the Elizabeth Islands. Brere-
ton was one of the five Englishmen who first landed on the shores of
New England, and his account is simple and interesting. He also
gives a description of the natural advantages, products, etc., and a
list of the animals, plants and minerals which they saw. The book
includes a brief account of the voyage of Capt. Mace in search of
Raleigh's lost colony in Virginia (Roanoke) and a Treatise by Cap-
tain Edward Hayes on the advantages of a colony in Virginia and
the likelihood of a passage to the South Seas.
