Six Galleons for the King of Spain

Imperial Defense in the Early Seventeenth Century

"Sea buffs will love it. This book will interest specialists in Spanish and maritime history and general readers who are interested in the sea. The illustrations and maps are excellent... A systematic exposition of the techniques of Spanish shipbuilding and the costs and problems associated with it, made vivid and immediate by the author's description of the construction, equipping, and financing of the six galleons of the title."

"Handsomely produced and illustrated... The six galleons built for the king by Martin de Arana in the royal shipyards at Zorozza in the Bilbao estuary were the products of a long and distinguished tradition of Spanish shipbuilding, well summarized by Phillips."
