Naish, George P. B. (Ed.).


Reprinted from The Naval Miscellany, Vol. IV, pub. by the NRS. N.d., (c.1951). 84 pp., frontis. Grey c.c.; black lettering. 22 x 15cm. V.G. George Naish was one of the stalwarts of the National Maritime Museum and he had a considerable knowledge of matters naval. Here he examines documents from various sources relating to the Spanish Armada which naturally fall into three sections. In the first, 11 Spanish documents deal with the inception of the fleet and its sailing from Spain. The second is a detailed Italian narrative of the campaign written by a native of Florence living in England. The third is short and consists of a song said to have been written by Queen Elizabeth herself following the scattering of the Spanish ships. These papers provide a valuable contribution to the study of Spain’s attempt to invade England. DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE SPANISH ARMADA OF 1588.
