About this title

Synopsis:

The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India. This 1897 volume contains the first English translation of Jens Munk's Navigatio Septentrionalis, his account of the Danish expedition of 1619-1620 in search of a North-West Passage to Asia. They reached Hudson's Bay and explored it, producing the first map to show the whole area. However, they were poorly prepared for the conditions there, and almost all the crew died from cold, hunger or disease. They returned to Denmark the following year, and although another expedition was planned, it did not take place.

Book Description:

The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. Munk's Navigatio Septentrionalis tells of the Danish attempt to find a North-West Passage in 1619-1620, which reached Hudson's Bay but lost almost all the crew due to cold and disease.
