Catalogue Note

FIRST EDITION. Hans Stade was a German soldier and explorer, who voyaged to South America in the the sixteenth century. While there he was captured by the Tupinambá people of Brazil, but managed to survive and return to Europe. Burton had discovered the text while on an extensive visit to Brazil, and wrote the introduction to the book and added extensive footnotes.
