An essay towards the establishing the fishery of Great Britain [electronic resource] : Proving, I. That it lies fairer for Her Majesties subjects, than for any other nation. II. That it will be of great and certain advantage to the publick. III. That it is absolutely necessary in order to the support of our navigation by being a constant, and the best nursery of stout and able seamen: wherein all material objections against it are answer'd. Together with the copy of a letter from King Charles the Second, to the then Lord Mayor of London; (within two months after his Restoration) recommending it to his care for raising subscriptions, for fitting out bussers for the herring-fishing; and a copy of the patent to the late King James (when Duke of York) and several other persons of very great quality, constituting them the Council of fishery of Great-Britain and Ireland; whereof his Majesty King Charles did vouchsafe to be, and be called protector. By W. Saunders. .
