**The Golden Hind Press**

The Golden Hind Press, named after Sir Francis Drake's ship, was founded by Ellen Black, Clifford Martin, and Robert Schmidt in 1985 to publish translations of relatively unfamiliar works in the history of mathematics, science, and logic. Since the advent of Project Hindsight in 1993, it has been publishing translations of classical astrological texts.
