Purchas his pilgrimes. In five bookes. The first, contayning the voyages and peregrinations made by ancient kings, patriarkes, apostles, philosophers, and others, to and throw the remoter parts of the knowne world: enquiries also of languages and religions, especially of the moderne diversified professions of christianitie. The second, a description of all the circum-navigations of the globe. The third, navigations and voyages of English-men, alongst the coasts of Africa, to the Cape of Good Hope, and from thence to the Red Sea, the Abassine, Arabian, Persian, Indians, Shoares, continents and ilands. The fourth, English voyages beyond the East Indies, to the ilands of Iapan, China, Cauchinchina, the Philippine with others, and the Indian navigations further prosecuted: their just commerce, nobly vindicated against Turkish treacherie; victoriously defended againsst Portugall hostilitie; gloriously advanced against Moorish and ethnike perfidie; hopefully recovering from Dutch malignitie; justly maintayned against ignorant and malicious calumnie. The fifth, navigations, voyages, traffiques, discoueries, of the English nation in the easterne parts of the world: continuing the English-Indian occurrents, and contayning the English affaires with the Great Samorine, in the Persian and Arabian gulfes, and in other places of the continent, and ilands of and beyond the Indies : the Portugall attemps, and Dutch disasters, divers sea-fights with both; and many other remarkable relations. The first part. Vnus deus, vna vertas. London printed by William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone, and are to be sold at his shop in Pauls Church-yard at the signe of the Rose. 1625.
