  • This part contains relations of six different voyages; three by Drake, one by Candish or Cavendish, and two by Sir Walter Raleigh. Drake's first voyage took place in 1577-1580. No description of it had previously been published. This account, from which de Bry, and later Hakluyt, published it in Latin and English respectively, was written by Niño de Sylva, a Portuguese. The second voyage of Drake around the world was finished in 1585. De Bry's account is based upon that of Thomas Cates. Drake's third voyage, directed against the Spanish at Panama, took place in 1595-1596. This account is taken from his log-book of the expedition, which was continued by his men. Thomas Candish, or Cavendish, circumnavigated the world in 1586-1588. An account of the voyage was written in English by Thomas [i.e. Francis] Pretty who accompanied him. It was published by Hakluyt. De Bry's narrative appears to have been based upon a manuscript account of Pretty's relation. The first voyage of Sir Walter Raleigh was undertaken in 1595, during which he visited Guiana. He himself published an account of it in London in 1596. The second voyage, attributed to Raleigh, does not appear to have been made by him, but by Laurent Keymis, a companion of the voyage of 1595, who set out for Guiana in 1596. On his return he wrote a description of his voyage which was published in London in the same year. Pages 112-130, in this edition, contain a narrative not to be found in the first. This is an account of an expedition made by the Dutch in 1599, under Pieter van der Does against the Spaniards, particularly at the Canaries. Cf. Church
