      A Book of Voyages‘ loveliest contributor is the Right Honorable Elizabeth Lady Craven, who sent her brother a series of letters describing her journey from the Crimea to Constantinople in “Lady Craven managed to attract a great deal of ill-natured scandal,” O’Brian notes, for she was both beautiful and indiscreet. William Shaler ( – Ma ) was an American government official who served as a diplomat and confidential agent in several foreign locations, including Algiers, Mexico and Cuba.

    Infante Dom Henrique of Portugal, Duke of Viseu (4 March – 13 November ), better known as Prince Henry the Navigator (Portuguese: Infante Dom Henrique, o Navegador), was a central figure in the early days of the Portuguese Empire and in the 15th-century European maritime discoveries and maritime expansion. Through his administrative direction, he is regarded as the main initiator of Father: John I of Portugal.   Never previously published in this country, A Book of Voyages presents writings by various travelers, annotated and introduced by Patrick OBrian. Most are taken from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; OBrian felt that, unlike Elizabethan or Victorian accounts, these writings were relatively unknown in our time/5.

Portuguese discoveries (Portuguese: Descobrimentos portugueses) are the numerous territories and maritime routes discovered by the Portuguese as a result of their intensive maritime exploration during the 15th and 16th centuries.
