History of the Virginia Company of London: With Letters to and from the First Colony, Never Before Printed

Portada
Joel Munsell, 1869 - 432 páginas
Neill's history of the Virginia Company of London is extensive and comprehensive. He begins with the First and Second Charters and continues, devoting chapters to the major players at the Jamestown settlement, including John Rolfe, Pocahontas, Sir Thomas Dale and Governor Yeardley. The history goes on to provide a full account of the Great Massacre of 1622 and ends with the dissolution of the Company, when Virginia became a Royal Colony. He bases his work on primary sources, many of which are reproduced in this volume.
