Henry Hudson, from Cyclopaedia of Universal History, 1885. Found, scanned, and uploaded to en:Wikipedia by Infrogmation on 5 November, 2003.

But note: " No portrait of Hudson is known to be in existence. What has passed with the uncritical for his portrait — a dapper-looking man wearing a ruffed collar — frequently has been, and continues to be, reproduced. Who that man was is unknown. That he was not Hudson is certain." - Thomas A. Janvier, biographer of Henry Hudson. The illustration featured here comes from the (presumably uncritical) Cyclopaedia of Universal History, 1885

SOS Children chose the best bits of Wikipedia to help you learn. SOS Children's Villages believes education is an important part of a child's life. That's why we ensure they receive nursery care as well as high-quality primary and secondary education. When they leave school, we support the children in our care as they progress to vocational training or higher education. Sponsoring a child is the coolest way to help.
