For an introduction to this group of drawings by John White and a list of abbreviations used in the Literature at the end, see curatorial comment for 1906,0509.1.1, the title page inscription to the album. The following text is taken from K. Sloan, 'A New World: England's First View of America' (London, BM Publications, 2006), no.41, pp.178-9: [NB. If you use any of the text or information below, please acknowledge the source] 'Ananas comosus' (Linn.) Merrill This drawing was with the group of other plants (apart from the mammee) that were in the centre of the album and were badly damaged by water; the offset contains much of the black and reddish brown pigment. The Sloane volume version below is more formulaic but easier to read as it is less sketchy and more carefully finished. Native to Peru and Brazil, the plant was being cultivated in the West Indies by the time of Columbus, who may have brought some back to Europe. By the middle of the sixteenth century it was being imported into England so White and Harriot may have already been familiar with what Raleigh was later to describe as ‘the princess of fruits’. Pineapples were highly regarded in the Caribbean, where they were placed in doorways to welcome visitors, a practice translated to Europe in the form of decorative pineapples on doorways and finials of gates. A 1675 painting attributed to Hendrick Danckerts depicts Charles II being presented with two pineapples in 1661 by his gardener James Rose, who had managed to ripen a fruit-bearing plant which had been brought over in a pot. There is another version in the Sloane album (SL,5270,24r) Lit.: LB 1(43); Quinn, p. 407; ECM 11; PH&DBQ 11(a); PH 11; see Fran Beauman, 'Pineapple, the King of Fruits', London, 2005
