Four centuries ago, English explorer Henry Hudson (1570-1611), commanding the yacht *Halve Maen* for the Dutch East India Company, sailed into a New World tidal estuary near the landmass the local Lenape Indians called the "island of many hills." The island was Manhattan, and though Hudson was unlikely the first European to see the river, it has been forever after that known by his name. This classic 1860 work collects the eyewitness documentation of Hudson's voyages of exploration, edited, partially translated, and annotated by GEORG MICHAEL ASHER (d. 1905). This invaluable volume of historical accounts includes abstracts of Hudson's own journals, reports by other sailors under Hudson's command, extracts from commentary by Hudson's contemporaries, and much more. The best record we have of Henry Hudson's achievements, this replica volume will be prized by fans of firsthand history. [for special edition only] Visit HenryHudson400.com for news and events honoring the 400th anniversary of Hudson's 1609 third voyage.
