Sir Francis DrakeBook - 1990
This biography of Drake makes use of Spanish and English sources to explore hitherto neglected areas of his life. Drake is shown not only as a great seaman, but also in a more unfamiliar light as vigorous social climber, businessman and property magnate, Lord Mayor, civic leader and parliamentarian, and as deputy Lord Lieutenant and magistrate.
