The strange and dangerous voyage of Captaine Thomas James...

Thomas James. The strange and dangerous voyage of Captaine Thomas James in his intended discovery of the Northwest Passage into the South Sea. London, 1633.

James was outfitted by Bristol merchants in rivalry with Fox. He explored the southern shores of Hudson Bay in 1631, but was unable to return before winter set in. He wintered in James Bay, where his crew suffered from the cold, and from scurvy. Although his discoveries were less important than Fox’s, Thomas James’ book describing the hardships suffered was a best seller.
