    Thanks for that Wayne. As you mention Harriot, this may be of interest: It is an interesting article on Harriot and the Roanoke Voyage and in particular on Harriot’s ‘Briefe and True Report of the New Found Land of Virginia’ (1588). It argues that the production of knowledge was closely tied to the production of capital. And to bring this back round to the original Topic – published and accessible treatises on rigging and shipbuilding were all very much a part of that growth in knowledge.
