BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

A COMPLETE bibliography concerned with the first century of Anglo-American affairs ( 1496-1596) would more than fill the present volume. But really informatory books about the sea-dogs proper are very few indeed, while good books of any kind are none too common.

Taking this first century as a whole, the general reader cannot do better than look up the third volume of Justin Winsor Narrative and Critical History of America ( 1884) and the first volume of Avery History of the United States and its People ( 1904). Both give elaborate references to documents and books, but neither professes to be at all expert in naval or nautical matters, and a good deal has been written since.

THE CABOTS. Cabot literature is full of conjecture and controversy. G. P. Winship Cabot Bibliography ( 1900) is a good guide to all but recent works. Nicholls' Remarkable Life of Sebastian Cabot ( 1869) shows more zeal than discretion. Harrisse John Cabot and his son Sebastian ( 1896) arranges the documents in scholarly order but draws conclusions betraying a wonderful ignorance of the coast. On the whole, Dr. S. E. Dawson's very careful monographs in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Canada ( 1894, 1896, 1897) are the happiest blend of scholarship and local knowledge.
