The "Historiarvm, Novi Orbis liber III." beginning on p. [135-136] has sections on p. 186 and p. 190-193, which contain staves of music with chants in a native Brazilian language, and other scattered words in this language, which is spoken by the Tououpinambaultii people, possibly the Tupi tribe; also contains chants with music and native words on p. 226, 228, and 229; a dialogue in the [possible] Tupi language appears in Latin and Tupi on p. 250-266.
The C.C.A., on the title page on p. , are the initials of Carolus Clusius Artebatensis, i.e. Charles de L'Écluse, the celebrated botanist. Cf. Church.
The first issue of the first Latin edition of part three was printed under title: Americae tertia pars Memorabile[m] provinciae Brasiliae historiam contine[n]s, Germanico primùm sermone scriptam à Ioa[n]ne Stadio Homburgensi Hesso, nunc autem Latinitate donatam à Teucrio Annaeo Priuato Colchanthe Po: & Med: addita est narratio profectionis Ioannis Lerij in eamdem provinciam, qua[m] ille initio Gallicè conscripsit, postea verò Latinam fecit, Frankfurt am Main, 1592.
The sole issue of the third edition of Latin part three can be identified by the elimination of the dedication and the preface, found in the two previous editions; by the omission of the illustration of Adam and Eve on p. 144, which is a blank leaf; and there is a difference in the in text illustrations from the first and second editions, with several new or re-engraved illustrations replacing the old ones, which are detailed by Church.
This part is made up of two separate narratives: the first is an account of two voyages made to Brazil in 1546-1548 and 1549-1555 by Johann von Staden. This narrative was originally written in German by the author and published at Marburg in 1557. The Latin translation, here given, is the work of Adam Lonicer. The second part is an account of a voyage to Brazil in 1556-1558, by Jean de Léry. The narrative of this voyage was originally published in French in 1578. The Latin translation appears to have been made by the author himself and was first published in 1586, from which was doubtless taken by De Bry. The two letters of Nicolas Barre, who accompanied Villegaignon, relate to Brazil and are dated the first of February and 25th of May, 1552. They are also to be found in Lescarbot's Histoire de la Nouuelle France (1609), pp. 146-163. Cf. Church.
This work has been identified as the sole issue of the third Latin edition of part three of the Great voyages by Church.
