This not only introduced to an English public Ramusio's version of Zeno the Venetian and Friseland, which we saw in Sidney's letter to Languet, and the 1563 French text about Jean Ribaut's Protestant colony in Florida, but also contained a set of fascinating notes on colonization thought to have been prepared for Sir Humphrey Gilbert in 1578.
