Synopsis

First published in 1928.

'Lescarbot was a man of lively wit, and a practical sagacity and breadth of view far in advance of his time.' Spectator

'This admirable edition reveals to be a lesser-known Montaigne, and Erondelle a second Florio' Daily News

'One must be singularly hard to entertain if Lescarbot fails' Birmingham Post

Nova Francia is an account of the foundation of the first French colony in Acadia in 1606. The author, Marc Lescarbot, had an inquisitive mind and an independent outlook, with a special faculty for clear thinking, and it is this authorial style which gives the work its unique value. To read Lescarbot is to enter again into the outlook of an intelligent Frenchman of the sixteenth century.
