Two British Virginia Editions Published

February 24, 2017

Associate Professor Joshua Eckhardt announces that British Virginia has published two matching editions: type and photo facsimiles of the official Virginia Company response to the 1622 assault on the James: Edward Waterhouse’s Declaration of the State of the Colony and Affaires in Virginia. Colonial historians have long assigned modern editions of part of Waterhouse’s narrative. The British Virginia editions provide the entirety of this book, and they provide it for free.

British Virginia is a series of scholarly editions of documents touching on the colonies. The original sources range from the 17th-century literature of English colonization to 19th-century slave narratives and beyond. British Virginia editions appear principally in digital form, freely downloadable. Dr. Eckhardt is editor of Virginia Company Sermons.
