Description :A certain person was selected and held in a prison at night-time. During the day, he dined with the nobility and was accompanied by guards. He could go wherever he wanted and he carried a whistle, so that when the commoners heard him coming, they would fall to their knees as he passed by to show their respect. After living in luxury like this for a whole year, he was tied to a stone by his ankle and, with sword and shield, forced to fight with a chosen priest. If he won the fight he was given complete freedom but if he lost he was skinned alive. From de Bry's "Great American Voyages".

Johann Theodor de Bry (1561-1623) was born in LiŤge in 1561, the eldest son of the engraver and publisher Theodor de Bry. It was from his father that Johann learned his craft, producing both engravings and etchings.
In 1588, the Lutheran De Bry family settled in Frankfurt am Main, a safe haven for Lutherans at this time of religious discord. Together with his father and brother (Johann IsraŽl de Bry), Johann published two popular emblem books.
He also produced engravings from celebrated contemporary painters. De Bry died in Frankfurt in 1623.
