Book Description

Documents, some summarized entirely or in part, relating to twenty-five voyages, drawn mainly from the records of the High Court of Admiralty, with selections from narratives printed by Hakluyt and from a quantity of translations by I.A. Wright of originals (1593-5) in the Archivo General de Indias in Seville intended for a further volume on English West Indies Voyages (see Second Series 66, 71 and 99). The Introduction gives an account of the Court itself and of privateering during the Spanish war and in the West Indies. This is a new print-on-demand hardback edition of the volume first published in 1959.
