Forthcoming: Waterhouse’s Declaration (1622)!

In 1622, the paramount chief of the Powhatans, Opecanchanough, led coordinated attacks on the English settlements along the James River. Later that year, the Virginia Company of London published its official response to the event: Edward Waterhouse’s A Declaration of the State of the Colony and Affaires in Virginia. And later this spring, British Virginia will have the honor of publishing Dylan Ruediger‘s excellent editions of the Virginia Historical Society’s copy of this book (VHS Rare Books F229 .W32 1622). Ruediger has produced both a type and a photo facsimile of this copy, with an excellent, brief essay explaining its context. While we cannot say that they are exactly “in press” (since we do not use an actual press), this pair of editions is now officially forthcoming.
