Voyages and Discoveries

Renaissance diplomat and part-time spy, William Hakluyt was also England's first serious geographer, gathering together a wealth of accounts about the wide-ranging travels and discoveries of the sixteenth-century English. One of the epics of this great period of expansion, The Principal Navigations, Voyages, Traffiques and Discoveries of the English Nation describes, in the words of the explorers themselves, an astonishing era in which the English grew rapidly aware of the sheer size and strangeness of their world. Mingling accounts of the journeys of renowned adventurers such as Drake and Frobisher with descriptions by other explorers and traders to reveal a nation beginning to dominate the seas, Hakluyt's great work was originally intended principally to assist navigation and trade. It also presents one of the first and greatest modern portraits of the globe.

Richard Hakluyt (1552-1616) was an English writer, famous for his Voyages, which provided William Shakespeare and others with material, and was a foundation for the travel literature genre. Hakluyt was born in Hereford and educated at Westminster School, where he was a Queen's Scholar. Hakluyt's first work brought him to the notice of Lord Howard of Effingham. At the age of thirty, he was selected, as chaplain to accompany Stafford, now English ambassador at the French court, to Paris (1583). While in Paris Hakluyt interested himself in the publication of the manuscript journal of Laudonniere, the Histoire Notable de la Florida, edited by Bassanier (Paris, 1586, 8vo.). In 1588 Hakluyt finally returned to England, after a residence in France of nearly five years. In 1589 he published the first edition of his chief work, The Principall Navigations, Voiages and Discoveries of the English Nation. In 1598-1600 appeared the final, reconstructed and greatly enlarged edition of The Principal Navigations, Voyages, Traffiques and Discoveries of the English Nation.
