About This Item

(London: Chatto & Windus, 1981) 0701125330. Title taken from half-title. Title page reads "Hakluyt's Voyages". 8vo; original brown boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; endpaper map; pp. 640, incl. index; maps; illustrations in text. Some foxing to reverse of dustwrapper and flaps, also to edges and endpapers. Very good condition. "Like Gibbon's Decline and Fall, Hakluyt's collection has been unjustly neglected because of its enormous length. Many abridgements are too short to do justice to the variety and scope of the original, while others concentrate on its historical or economic interest. The present selection conveys all the variety of the original while emphasizing the extraordinary human interest of the documents." .
