    According to D.W. Waters (The Art of Navigation in England in 
    Elizabethan and Early Stuart Times, London, 1958, p.163) an English 
    translation was produced under the title of "The Arte of Navigation..." 
    by John Frampton in 1581 and printed by Thomas Dawson. It was only 
    reprinted once.
    You will find a 1595 copy at the British Library under shelfmark 
    C.118.c.12 ("The arte of navigation, wherin is contained, all the rules, 
    declarations, secrets, and aduises, which for good nauigation are 
    necessary, and ought to be knowen and practised ... With the declination 
    of the sunne newly corrected. Translated out of Spanish into English, by 
    Iohn Frampton.').
