A very necessarie and profitable booke concerning navigation

New York: John Carter Brown Library, 1999. Facsimile reprint of the Richard Eden translation of around 1579, 8vo, pp. 16, [2], [86]; original navy cloth, fine. "Eden's translation... is a reflection of Eden's passion for bringing England into the Age of Discovery and the scramble for overseas empire. His choice of this text reveals the lack of clarity in his mind as to the division of knowledge between science, pseudoscience, superstition, and tradition." Item #53817
