Beschreibung

First Edition (First Printing).This is a full-blooded and absorbing portrait, based on research in English and Spanish archives, of the greatest seaman of the Elizabethan age. From his family's fierce Protestantism and early poverty which drove Drake to sea while still a boy until his death at sea in 1596, it was a life of drama in which opportunism, courage, greed, religion and national policy (and luck) all played their part alongside the sailing skill and navigational brilliance of the first man to sail his ship all the way around the world. John Cummins ends by looking at Drake's posthumous legend and its inspirational role throughout later centuries. 348pp. Index. Bibliography. Size: 8vo Royal (9¾" x 6¼") For more photos or information, use the «Ask Bookseller» button and I'll be pleased to help.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
