I would rate this the number one reference material of the voyage of Francis Drake's circumnavigation 1577-1580. The World Encompassed is the journal of Rev. Francis Fletcher who accompanied Drake on the voyage.
In the 16th century, a reverend would be one of the few, on board ship, who were able to read & write. It was customary for them to be the chronologer on voyages.
