Abstract

While living in France between 1583 and 1588, Hakluyt heard of the achievements of other nations, but to him, at least, no one cared ‘to recommend to the world, the industrious labors, and painefull travels of our country men’. Principall Navigations was the result. Here is the beginning of Francis Drake’s 1577 voyage, in which he became the second person to circumnavigate the world in a single expedition. Drake (c.1540-1596) was a sea captain, privateer, navigator, and slaver; hero to the English, but a pirate in the eyes of the Spaniards.
