By Simon van de Passe
Simon van de Passe (ca. 1595 – May 6 1647), was the eldest son of Dutch publisher and engraver Crispijn van de Passe. He worked in England from about 1616 before moving to Copenhagen as royal engraver and designer of medals in 1624, where he remained until his death. He is best remembered for his early London print of Pocahontas (1616).
