THE CABOTS (JOHN AND SEBASTIAN). Thick 12mo, original stamped pigskin, with Grolieresque pattern, and dated 1595. Herborn (Nassau), 1594 Scarce. Sebastian Cabot in 1544 executed a map of the then known world, which was copied by Clement Adams in 1549. The original map had letterpress, describing in detail the map and the progress of discovery. Only one copy of the original is known. Chytræus reprints it in extenso, with only one or two slight variations-for instance, the date of the discovery of Baccalos (probably Newfoundland) he states was 24 June, 1594, at the fifth hour, the year being an evident transcriber's slip for 1494 (his preliminary preface is dated Oct., 1593). Hakluyt reprinted this version of Adams, but altered some of the chapters considerably, and the date of the discovery is changed to 1497. The value of this reprint by Chytræus of these early descriptions by Cabot is, of course, apparent. Chytraeus' real name was Nathan Kochhoef.
