Transcribers notes:

i) This transcript retains the original spelling, except for the obsolete "long ess" character which has been replaced by 's' throughout.

Spellings of proper names tend to be phonetic and haphazard. Eg Pensanz, Pensans, Pensants, Pensance, and Penzance are all the same place.

ii) The Latin is worse than the English. I am 99.9% certain that I have transcribed it correctly, the doubt being where the printer has randomly mixed the "long ess" and "f" characters & neither form is in my Collin's Little Gem Latin Dictionary.

iii) This transcript omits the original page numbering from the introduction and appendix, but retains it in the main text to support cross referencing and the index.

Each double page spread was given a single page number. I have given these in []s at the beginning of the left hand page.

iv) Marginalia have been inserted into the text surrounded by []s

v) Footnotes have been placed beneath the sections to which they refer.

vi) Italics, which Carew uses heavily, have been mostly removed, but sometimes replaced with quotes.

vii) The original capitalisation & over punctuation is retained.
