Canaccord: A glimpse inside Peter Brown's world - Your Money:

"the diaries of famous explorers were like stock offering prospectuses" [See: Age of Exploration]

"These guys would go on these journeys, they’d go back to England or wherever they came from, and they’d produce these leather-bound diaries, often travelling with an artist, full of etchings. That would kind of be their prospectus, to raise money for the next trip."

Modern day equivalent: Kickstarter
