Description:

"This first complete edition of Haklyut's Voyages gathers and describes the "Principal Navigations, Voyages, Tarrifques and Discoveries of the English Nation Made by Sea or Overland to the Remote and Farthest Distant Quarters of the Earth at any time within the compass of these 1600 years". This new and enlarged work extended into three volumes. The third volume deals with America and comprises eighty-one voyages to the new continent, ranging from the period of discovery to the end of the sixteenth century. Here we find the ringing tales of achievements of the Cabots, Cartier, Frobisher, Raleigh and Drake. Inspiration from this important and exciting compilation of England's searchings "further than ever any Christian hitherto hath pierced" was, as has been frequently stated, largely responsible for Britain's subsequent domination of the sea. The modern Hakluyt Society has issued over two-hundred volumes, each dealing with a separate voyage, with and introduction by an eminent scholar.
The printing of a volume as large as this was a major undertaking and required all the material and financial resources of Robert Barker (also the printer and one of the sponsors of the first issue of the King James Version of the Bible), as well as the help of George Bishop, a wealthy alderman of the city of London and deputy printer to the Queen, and of Rolfe Newberrie."
