Tobias Gentleman : Englands way to win wealth... with a true relation of the inestimable wealth that is yearely taken out of His Majesties seas by the Hollanders

'Then we fell to reading of a book which I saw the other day at my Lord Sandwichs, entended for the late King, finely bound up - a treatise concerning the benefit the Hollanders make of our fishing; but whereas I expected great matters from it, I find it a very impertinent book; and though some things good, yet so full of tautologys that we were weary of it.'

Century: 1600-1699     Reader/Listener/Group: Samuel Pepys      Print: Book
