  • This Part contains relations of six different voyages; three by Drake, one by Cavendish, and two by Sir Walter Raleigh. Drake's first voyage (p. 3-16) 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 Nuno da Silva, a Portuguese. Drake's second voyage (p. 17-32) around the world was finished in 1585. De Bry's account is based upon that of Thomas Cates. Drake's third voyage (p. 33-44), 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 Cavendish circumnavigated the globe in 1586-1588. An account of the voyage was written in English by Francis Pretty who accompanied him. De Bry's narrative appears to have been based on Pretty's account. The first voyage of Sir Walter Raleigh was undertaken in 1595. He himself published an account of it in London in 1596 (Church no. 254). The second voyage attributed to Raleigh does not appear to have been made by him, but rather by Laurence Kemys, who accompanied Raleigh on the 1595 voyage. On his return, Kemys wrote and published in London an account of his trip (Church no. 250).
