XI,268 pp. Hakluyt Societ, 3rd series, 6. - Sir Martin Frobisher (c. 1535 - 1594[) was an English seaman and privateer who made three voyages to the New World to look for the Northwest Passage. He landed in northeastern Canada, around today's Resolution Island and Frobisher Bay.[2] On his second voyage, Frobisher found what he thought was gold ore and carried 200 tons of it home on three ships, where initial assaying determined it to be worth a profit of 5.2 per ton. Encouraged, Frobisher returned to Canada with an even larger fleet and dug several mines around Frobisher Bay. He carted 1,350 tons of the ore back where, after years of smelting, it was realised that the ore was worthless iron pyrite. [Boeknr.: 34634 ]

In death, General Wolfe gained fame as a national hero and became an icon of the Seven Years' War and British dominance in late eighteenth century North America. William Woollett's engraving was the best-known copy of West's original and became popular around the world - Mounted on linnen, occasionally faint rubbing, otherwise fine. [Boeknr.: 32289 ]
