Description

Fine example of Simon De Passe's portrait of Captain John Smith, re-issued by William Richardson circa 1820, using the original plate.

This is the classic view of Smith in his military attire, hand on sword, ready to face the challenges of the New World. The same image appears on his map of New England published in the early a 17th Century.
