Description :Scarce print with a German text sheet. While the Dutch were killing the birds on Penguin Island, there was a great storm and the waves damaged their boat so badly that it was wrecked. After the storm, they gathered round and prayed for strength to cope with their disaster, then they collected together the remains of their boat to try to repair it.
While they were doing so they noticed an Indian woman hiding from them in one of the penguinís holes. They also discovered a dead man with a feathered head-dress with his hands tied behind his back. 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.
