Abstract:

During the 16th to the 19th centuries the transpacific treasure galleons sailed from Manila to Acapulco. In Manila the ships were loaded with spices,, silks, lacquerware and oriental goods destined for New Spain and returned with millions of silver pesos and a yearly silver subsidy of 250,000 reales for the maintenance of the colonial government in the Philippines. This book describes in detail how the galleons were attacked at sea and how they fought against enemy vessels, as well as how they sank, or were shipwrecked. It also covers their management, construction, manning, weaponry, daily life on the ship, provisions, cargoes, and voyages.
