Description Sailing Directions of Henry Hudson, Prepared for His Use in 1608, from the Old Danish of Ivar Bardsen de B F Decosta:

Excerpt from Sailing Directions of Henry Hudson, Prepared for His Use in 1608, From the Old Danish of Ivar Bardsen: With an Introduction and Notes It was the author's intention at the outset to print the treatise of Ivar Bardsen with a few explanatory notes- yet the interest proved such as to induce the author to enlarge the plan and include a dissertation on early voyages to America, with especial reference to the discovery of the Hudson river, together with a new translation from the text as given in GroniamCs Historiske Mindesmcerker and Rafn sAntiqiuiates Americana. The influence of this work on modern cartography would, of itself, afford a fair subject for an essay. But few of those, who in times past used its material at second and third hand, knew anything of the origin of the influence that shaped their views. It is to be regretted, however, that in the day of Torfseus the means of interpreting Bardsen aright had been lost, and that the location of Old Greenland was so long misunderstood. As it was, however, Torffcus knew less of the location of Old Greenland in 1617 than Antonio Zeni in the year 1400.
