This work was printed in 1682 as the first part of "Magalopsychy, A true and exact account of the wars with Spain..."
Manuscript, in a single hand, of a collection of descriptions of voyages and naval engagements between the English and Spanish, including those led by Sir Francis Drake; George Clifford, Earl of Cumberland; Lord Thomas Howard, Earl of Suffolk; Sir Walter Raleigh; Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex; and others. Each entry begins with a list of ships and the names of their commanders, followed by a narrative of the events of the naval conflict, which include details of short rations; discussions of tactics; occasional criticism of both English and Spanish commanders; and descriptions of maneuvers in battle. Monson's own name appears on some of these lists as ship commander under Cumberland and Essex, as well as within the narratives.
