To learn more about the engraver of the 17th-century head-piece pictured to the left, see the IN BRIEF biography for Wenceslaus Hollar.

For more on Hariot — specifically, his exploration of Virginia for Ralegh — see the editor’s introduction to the digital reissue (2014) of Thomas Tryon’s The Planter’s Speech to his Neighbours & Country-Men of Pennsylvania, East & West-Jersey ... (1684) at the subdomain known as Roses.
  This companion website also includes preliminary research on Hariot’s cancer.

There is additional material on Thomas Hariot and his most important patrons, Sir Walter Ralegh (1552–1618) and Henry Percy (1564–1632), 9th earl of Northumberland, scattered throughout She-philosopher.​com.

Under Construction

S O R R Y,  but this page — juxtaposing multiple views of the reserved and somewhat “melancholy” genius, Thomas Hariot, whose advances to navigational science, cartography, mathematics, optics, astronomy, and mechanics were privatized under the patronage model of science — is still under construction.
