CAPTIVITY OF HANS STADE OF HESSE, in A.D. 1547 - 1555, Among the Wild Tribes of Eastern Brazil. Translated by Albert Tootal, Esq., of Rio de Janeiro
London: Printed by the Hakluyt Society, 1874. First edition. 8vo, bound by Morrell in three-quarter crushed green morocco and cloth, gilt ruled borders in the panels of the spine, two panels with lettering in gilt, t.e.g. With the original blue cloth spine bound in at the rear. xcvi, 169. A very handsome and beautifully bound copy. This scarce publication is the autobiography of a German soldier of fortune, Hans Stade, who had been captured by cannibalistic Indians in eastern Brazil during the sixteenth century. Burton wrote the introduction to the book and added extensive footnotes. He also brushed up the text a bit. Burton discovered this text while on an extensive visit to Brazil where he studied many of the indigenous Indian languages, excavated early Portuguese forts and searched for gold.
