An Account of Exeter's Merchant Adventurers in 16th century


Cat No.:   GB1191:

An account of the most significant Guild in 16th century Exeter. Previously an oath taken by members of the guild prevented them revealing the affairs of Merchant Adventurers, so little is known about them and they have been omitted from other history books.

In 1873, this changed with the publication of this book. The pages are full of the daring feats of the adventurers and how they battled to establish trade across the seas. Amongst the accounts are descriptions of Raleigh, Drake, Davis and the Gilberts.
