Reprinted from the first edition of 1634 (a third edition was called for in 1639). The map, the first detailed map of Massachusetts by a resident, is from the same woodblock as in the first edition, but has a reset typographic heading. Little is known of the author, who was resident in New England from 1629 to 1633; Wood apparently returned to British America after sailing to England to publish this account. The General Court of Massachusetts Bay voted thanks to Wood on the appearance of New Englands Prospect. Part II of the work is devoted to a detailed narrative of the Indian peoples of New England and includes a five-page glossary.
