Sir Francis Drake Map

Map of Sir Francis Drake's Voyage Circumnavigating the Globe

This is an incredible map showing the journey of Sir Francis Drake in his voyage circumnavigating the Globe. Drake was the first captain to successfully circumnavigate the globe (1586-1588). While Magellan's voyage successfully circled the globe in 1522, Magellan himself was killed on the Journey, giving Drake the distinction of being the first captain to start and complete such a voyage. The map shows the path he took and the stops he made. The map has a number of detailed drawings of his ships, and inset scenes of interesting things he saw along the way. The map is ornately illustrated with heavenly beings, sea creatures, and royal crests. This is an incredible map, which was created in 1595.
