rest of the Nobles and Gentlemen, Captaines and Soldiers of our said Navie. First written and published in Spanish by a Spanish Gentleman ; who came hither out of the Lowe Countries from the seruice of the Prince of Parma, with his wife and familie, since the overthrow of the Spanish Armada, forsaking both his countrie and Romish religion, as by this Treatise (against the barbarous impietie of the Spaniards, and dedicated to the Queenes most excellent Maiestie) may appeare. Faithfully translated by I[ames] L[ea.] London, Printed by lohn Iack son, for Thomas Cadman. 1589. 40, A-H in fours.

Dedicated to Lord Howard of Effingham. On the back of the title occur two copies of verse: “England to her Queene,” S. D.,

and “England to hir Admirall," I. Lea. Following the dedication to Howard is a second to Queen Elizabeth by the author, and this is succeeded by “The Author to hir Majestie,” subscribed S. D., and “The translator,” subscribed I. L. The former may be the initials of Daniel.

This is a very curious volume, and is partly in verse. At p. 31 occurs An answer to the songs of Christovall Bravo, of Cordova, blinde of bodie and soule, in praise of the victorie which the Spanish Armada had.

With the answers are given translations of the songs. At p. 49 we have, A song in the praise of the English Nobilitie,” followed by another by

the translator “to the same effect.” A Treatise Wherein is manifestlie proved, that Reformation and those that sincerely fauor the same, are vniustly charged to be enemies, ynto hir Maiestie, and the state. Written both for the clearing of those that stande in that cause : and the stopping of the sclaunderous mouthes of all the enemies thereof.
