Edited by Dr. Warren

This edition of the surviving papers of Governor Sir William Berkeley contains the largest body of original documents concerning any seventeenth-century Virginian. As governor of the colony for almost three decades, Berkeley was the most important man in Virginia. The collected records of his administration, of his attempts to diversify the economy of the colony, and of his personal life offer unique insights into the man and his times and chronicle the history of Virginia from Berkeley's arrival in 1642 through the tumultuous English Civil Wars and the calamity of Bacon's Rebellion.

Edited by Dr. Warren M. Billings with the assistance of Maria Kimberly.
