This volume stands immediately before Laughton's on the Spanish Armada. It prints the major English documents relating to Drake's voyage to the West Indies in 1585-86, and his expedition to Cadiz in 1587. To these are added an important collection of papers describing English naval administration, and in particular John Hawkins' part in it, the mobilization of the Queen's ships, and an appendix on 'Guns and Gunnery in the Tudor Navy'.
