November 6, 1577 Humphrey Gilbert publishes a tract titled "A Discourse How Hir Majestie May Annoy the King of Spayne" which details exploring the coast between Newfoundland and Florida and establishing a colony there to raid the West Indies, attack Spanish merchant vessels and discover the Northwest Passage. Gilbert would explore the coast the following year in a little known voyage. Sir Walter Raleigh, who is Gilbert's half-brother, is closely associated with this trip.
