German copperplate engraving by Theodore de Bry showing Amerigo Vespucci attacking natives in South America, probably from America (10th book?), early 1600s, hand colored. 13" x 8" (image 6-3/4" x 5-7/8"). Epic scene of brutality by well-armed Europeans coming ashore in boats attacking grossly outgunned natives. Exceptionally detailed coloring, choice condition, no problems anywhere.
