Abstract

mong the manuscripts that Samuel Purchas obtained from Richard Hakluyt, which in 1625 he published in "Purchas His Pilgrims," was the journal of Anthony Knyvett, the son of a Wiltshire knight, who in 1601 returned to England after a seven-year captivity in Brazil. Purchas had taken on too much to be able to be a truly conscientious editor. But Knyvett's journal, for all its still detectable merits, has suffered from more than mere editorial negligence, and religious prejudice may reasonably be suspected as a factor.
