History of New France, Vol. I - Translated by Henry Percival Biggar. "Histoire de la Nouvelle-France initially appeared in 1609. This third edition (1617-18) appears in English translation as well as the original French. Volume I contains Books I and II. Book I recounts the 1524 voyage for Francis I of Giovanni da Verrazzano to North America, and the tragic efforts of Jean Ribault, René Goulaine de Laudonnière and Dominique de Gourges to establish a Huguenot colony in modern Florida in the 1560s. Book II is devoted to the failed effort by Nicolas Durand de Villegagnon in 1555 to establish a French presence in Brazil."
History of New France, Vol. II - "Volume 2 contains Books III and IV of the original third edition. Book III recounts Jacques Cartier's voyages of 1534 and 1535-36, his voyage of 1541-42, made under the aegis of the Sieur de Roberval, and the 1588 misfortunes of Jacques Noel and Chaton de la Jaunaye. It also includes Samuel de Champlain's St. Lawrence visit of 1603, and the failed penal colony on Sable Island of Troilus de La Roche de Mesqouez, 1598-1603. In Book IV, Lescarbot began to create original history, as the leading figures were personally known to him, he having overwintered at the Port Royal settlement in 1606-07. Book IV is devoted to the 1603-07 exploits of Champlain, Pierre Du Gua de Monts, and Jean de Biencourt de Poutrincourt."
History of New France, Vol. III - "This final volume in the Society's bilingual treatment of Lescarbot's Histoire de la Nouvelle France contains Book V and VI of the original third edition. In Book V Lescarbot addressed both Samuel de Champlain's trade and colonization efforts on the St. Lawrence between 1608 and 1613 and the Sieur de Poutrincourt's attempt to revive the Port Royal settlement, which ended with its destruction by the English in 1613. Book VI is devoted to "the Manners, Customs, and Fashion of Life of the Western Indians of New France."
