A buccaneer's atlas : Basil Ringrose's South Sea waggoner : a sea atlas and sailing directions of the Pacific coast of the Americas, 1682 by Basil Ringrose( )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1680, a band of English buccaneers marched across the Isthmus of Darien from the Atlantic to the Pacific and, off Panama, captured several Spanish vessels, one of which they made their flagship. From this vessel they terrorized Spanish possessions on the west coast of the Americas. On July 29, 1681, they captured another Spanish ship, from which they obtained a derrotero, or book of charts and sailing directions. Their depredations over, the pirates sailed eastward around Cape Horn to the Caribbean, where they distributed their booty. When they arrived in England, the Spanish ambassador demanded that the buccaneers be brought to trial. The derrotero was ordered to be brought to King Charles II, who apparently appreciated its great intelligence value. The buccaneers were acquitted; as a result the English ambassador to Spain was expelled from Madrid." "The derrotero was subsequently translated, and one of the buccaneers, Basil Ringrose, added a text to the compilation and information to the Spanish charts. The resulting atlas, consisting of 106 pages of charts and 106 pages of text, is published in full for the first time in this volume. Covering the area from California to Tierra del Fuego, the Galapagos, and Juan Fernandez, Basil Ringrose's south sea waggoner is a rich source of geographical information, with observations on navigational, physical, biological, and cultural features as well as on ethnography, customs, and folklore." "After almost exactly three hundred years, this secret atlas is now made available to libraries and individuals. The editors have provided an extensive introduction on historical, geographical, and navigational aspects of the atlas, as well as annotations to the charts and text, and they have plotted the coverage of the charts on modern map bases."--Jacket

9 editions published between 1978 and 1990 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, an international group of scholars from Britain, Ireland, and North America take up many of the questions surrounding the history of European expansion. What were the motives of the English, how did these change, and what insight is given on developments in English society? How did the ventures of the English compare with those of other European nations? What were the shifts in fundamental knowledge of the world, and the new concepts of civilization spread by the invention of printing, which lay behind the movements of ships, armies, and settlers? What were the roles and reactions of those who felt the weight of English expansionism, the natives of Ireland and America? Over a period of forty years, D.B. Quinn, formerly Andrew Geddes and John Rankin Professor of Modern History at the University of Liverpool, has pioneered research into these far-reaching questions in a range of books, articles, and lectures, which together have made a special contribution to the study of European expansion and the rise of the modern world. This volume is published in tribute to Professor Quinn. It provides in one source a survey of the historical research and advances in knowledge concerning the English westward enterprise, and the earliest history of America, which have been made during the last half-century"--Jacket, p.
