This remarkable book was conceived as an explanation of how the early colonists reached America and how they carried on their overseas trade.
The period covered begins when the English mariner's art was confined to the pilot's skill aided by handwritten records of traditional knowledge, continues through the initiation of the English, by the Portuguese and Spanish, in the "art of navigation," and concludes with the age of English maritime supremacy which led to American settlement.
Contains an exhaustive bibliography.
