41 DRAKE, Francis). KELSEY, Harry. Sir Francis Drake : The Queen's Pirate.
Yale University Press, New Haven and London , 0, ISBN:0300071825 
(DRAKE, Francis). KELSEY, Harry. Sir Francis Drake : The Queen's Pirate. New Haven and London : Yale University Press, (1998). First Printing. Pp (2),[i]-xviii,(2),[1]-566,(4). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, red cloth spine lettered in black, blur paper covered boards. "In this lively and engaging new biography, Harry Kelsey shatters the familiar image of Sir Francis Drake. The Drake of legend was a pious, brave, and just seaman who initiated the move to make England a great naval power and whose acts of piracy againsthis country’s enemies earned him a knighthood for patriotism. Kelsey pai nts a different and far more interesting picture of Drake as an amoral privateer at least as interested in lining his pockets with Spanish booty as inforwarding the political goals of his country, a man who became a captain general of the English navy, but never waged traditional warfare with any success. Drawing on much new evidence, Kelsey describes Drake's early life as the son of a poor family in sixteenth-century England. He explains how Drake dabbled in piracy, gained modest success as a merchant, and then took advantage of the hostility between Spain and England to embark on a series of daring pirate raids on undefended Spanish ships and ports, preempting Spanish demands for punishment by sharing much of his booty with the Queen andher councillors. Elizabeth I liked Drake because he was a charming rogue, and she made him an integral part of her war plans against Spain and its armada, but she quickly learned not to trust him with an important command: he was unable to handle a large fleet, was suspicious almost to the point ofparanoia, and had no understanding of personal loyalty. For Drake, the mar k of success was to amass great wealth, preferably by taking it from someone else and the primary purpose of warfare was to afford him the opportunityto accomplish this." - from the dj.

ELSON, Bryan. Nelson's Yankee Captain : The Life of Boston Loyalist Sir Benjamin Hallowell. Halifax, : Formac Publishing Company Limited, (2008). First Edition. Pp (8),[9]-416. Illustrated. Maps. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to front board and spine.

Admiral Sir Benjamin Hallowell Carew GCB, (born Benjamin Hallowell, ca. 1 January 1761, Boston, Mass. - d. September 2, 1834, Beddington Park, Surrey).

Bryan Elson is a resident of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

“Sir Benjamin Hallowell was born in the seaport of Boston, when Massachusetts was still a colony of Great Britain, to a family that had significant land holdings in Nova Scotia and Ontario. Sir Benjamin Hallowell, one of Admiral Horatio Nelson's famous 'Band of Brothers', served a lifetime in the navy of Great Britain through the American and French Revolutions between 1775 and 1815. His drama-filled life was profoundly shaped by the currents of history, with strong connections to Canada and the United States through his Boston-bred, staunchly Loyalist family.

Bryan Elson's thoroughly researched biography illuminates Hallowell's career and his personal life during these history-shaping events. Through Hallowell's eyes, readers will witness key events in British imperial history during this dramatic period when Britain was able to gain ascendancy over its arch-rival France to 'rule the waves.'” - from the dj.
