The Man who Discovered Russia

Active selection:    
The Man who Discovered Russia.  Richard Chancellor (inset) had originally been part of an expedition to find a north-east passage to China.  Instead, he landed in Russia and sealed an important trade agreement with its Tsar, Ivan the Terrible.  The illustration shows how, hammered by a storm, Richard Chancellor's ship found a safe anchorage at Vardo, the expedition's agreed rendezvous in an emergency.  But none of the other ships arrived to join him.  Original artwork.
