Spelling on title-page reflects Gray's choice to employ seventeenth-century styles of original. Text consists of the enlarged 1629 edition of Smiths 1627 Generall Historie of Virginia, New-England, and the Summer Isles; additional 1629 material comprises opening section [p. 1-54] with books 1-3 of the 1627 edition filling the remainder of volume I, and books 4-6 making up the entirety of volume II; hence, title page of second volume differs from that of the first, so reporting: "The generall historie of Virginia, New-England, and the Summer Isles with the names of the adventurers, planters, and governours from their first beginning, An. 1584. to this present 1626.With the proceedings of those severall colonies and the accidents that befell them in all their Iounyes and discoveries, also the maps and descriptions of those countryes, their commodities, people, government, customs. and religion yet showne. Divided into sixe bookes. By Captain Iohn Smith, sometimes governour of those countryes and admiral of New England" [stylistic spelling throughout].
