2001 The Third Voyage of Martin Frobisher to Baffin Island 1578
What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
Sir Martin Frobisher (c1535-1594) was an English seaman remembered for his three voyages to the New World, where he landed on Baffin Island, the largest island in Canada, where on his second voyage, he discovered what he believed to be gold ore, which he transported home by sea. He subsequently returned to Baffin Island and dug a number of mines and returned to England with 1,350 tons of the ore, which was found to be worthless hornblende years later.
This work details his third voyage, taken in 1578 to retrieve more ore.
