I did eventually manage to complete the transaction, buying one copy for myself and one for a friend. One of the credit card issuers (probably both, but I only contacted one) had blocked the transaction because they thought my card or identity had been stolen. I had never done business with a Spanish company before.

Navíos de la Real Armada includes a lot of information about construction methods and details as well as about hull designs, spar dimensions, etc. There is not much about armament. However, the detailed dimensions will enable me to review Jan Glete's displacement estimates and perhaps reach better numbers than what I think are his best guesses. I think he overestimated the displacement of Soberbio, probably because of her nominal or initial gun rating, which was higher than what was apparently installed.
