Description
1759 George Anson Voyage Round the World Dilworth Spain South America SHIPS



George Anson was an 18th-century British Navy admiral who is noted for his important world voyage in which he circumnavigated the globe. This voyage, beginning in 1740, was initiated in order to disrupt Spain and their acquisitions from the Pacific – even though the squadron saw certain danger.

“Anson's voyage is remembered as a classic tale of endurance and leadership in the face of fearful disasters” (Rodger, 239)

He saw substantial victory by capturing Spanish ships carrying pieces of eight, silver, and other treasure; thus, allowing Anson to return home a very rich sailor. This voyage took Anson and company into South America and home by way of China – a true world voyage!



This edition of Dilworth’s ‘Lord Anson’s Voyage’ features impressive full-page engravings of ships and South American landscapes.
