North-East to Muscovy by C. P. Mayers

Book Description

In 1553 and 1556 the Devon-born sea captain Stephen Borough was given the task of finding a north-east passage to China to open up new trading links between Britain and the East. His epic journeys, though fraught with danger, misfortune and death, were to leave a lasting legacy for sea exploration, navigation and the operations of trading companies abroad. This book tells the story of Borough, a rather neglected Tudor hero, the expeditions he undertook and their consequences, set against the realities of sea travel in the 16th century, of geographical knowledge, and of ship technology.
