This map depicts the route taken by Sir Francis Drake on his circumnavigation of the globe (1577-80), only the second such successful expedition, after Magellan (1519-22). Soldier, navigator, explorer, MP, Mayor of Plymouth, hero to the English, scourge of the Spanish (to whom he was a pirate), Drake was the first Englishman to sight the Pacific Ocean, and the first to land in California, which he claimed for the Crown and named Nova Albion.
