The fireship attack on the Spanish Armada, 7 August 1588

Soon after the defeat of the Spanish Armada, in 1588, Petruccio Ubaldini wrote a brief account of the campaign and battle. Illustrations were made to accompany Ubaldini's history and Robert Adams (c.1540-95) produced 11 charts or maps representing the several actions between the Armada and English fleet.

Disbound sheet. Hand coloured engraving. Scale: circa 1:150,000 (bar). Ungraduated chart of the track of the Spanish Armada. The bar scale is in English miles. The chart contains the coats of arms of Queen Elizabeth and Lord Howard. The prevailing wind direction is indicated next to the compass rose.

This is one of twelve sheets (title page, one overview chart and ten local charts) boxed with their original vellum binding. It has a sheet number, 9, in the lower right corner.
