Footnotes

  • "This is one of the principal accounts of the Wager [one of Anson's fleet], which was wrecked off the southern coast of Chile after rounding Cape Horn... After the wreck gunner John Bulkeley and carpenter John Cummins conducted the mutinous part of the crew until they arrived safely in Rio de Janeiro. Much of the adventure and interest of the account is in the description of their travails passing through the Strait of Magellan in a longboat" (Hill). This copy, with the author's name given on the title-page, is the first of two issues printed in 1743.
