Constable & Co, London - first edition, 1966. Hardcover, 8¾" x 5½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy one in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode and pocket. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Olive-green cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, photographic frontispiece (Spanish Astrolabe, 1585), 9 b&w illustrations, map ('Armada wrecks in Ireland'), and index. Francisco de Cuellar, a Spaniard whose ship was wrecked off the Irish coast after the failure of the Spanish Armada, wrote: "I was delivered from the sea and my enemies, in company with more than three hundred soldiers who had managed to save themselves and swim to land. With them I endured great hardships, living for more than seven months of that winter naked and barefoot in the mountains and forests, among the savages that inhabit those regions of Ireland where we were wreccked." The harrowing account of his experiences in Ireland form the centrepiece of this book.
