Theodor de Bry (1527-1598) was an engraver, goldsmith and editor who traveled around Europe, starting from the city of Liege (where he was born and grew up), then to Strasbourg, Antwerp, London and Frankfurt.Theodorus de Bry created a large number of engraved illustrations for his books. Most of his books were based on first-hand observations by explorers, even if De Bry himself, acting as a recorder of information, never visited the Americas. To modern eyes, many of the illustrations seem formal but detailed.   more from wikipedia »
