The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Historical fiction account of Sir Francis Drake's 1587 raid on the Spanish fleet at the Bay of Cadiz and the series of attacks on the Portuguese coast that followed, known as "the singeing of the King of Spain's beard." These attacks ravaged the Spanish fleet and are credited with delaying the sailing of the Spanish Armada by more than a year.
