Title-page laid down, a copy with provenance RARE FIRST EDITION AND HIGHLY IMPORTANT AND VERY SCARCE. A PMM WORK. THIS COPY WITH THE RARE INCLUSION OF DRAKE’S VOYAGE. Hakluyt’s greatest work, here in first edition format. This work has been called "the prose epic of the modern English nation" and is an invaluable treasure of material for the history of geographical exploration and colonization and has secured Hakluyt’s reputation for centuries. Book 3 is entirely devoted to the Americas, and as such is one of the earliest English books to cover the subject in any depth. Hakluyt was a foremost supporter of English exploration and colonization in the New World. Sabin calls this one of the most desirable books for a collection of Americana. PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN cites Hakluyt’s book as an "enormous work.said to contain one million seven hundred thousand words (as) the most complete collection of voyages and discoveries, by land as well as by sea.Hakluyt. inspired some of the great overseas explorations of his time and was one of the leading spirits in the Elizabethan maritime expansion. He met many of the great navigators---Drake, Raleigh, Gilbert, Frobisher and others---corresponded with Ortelius and Mercator and collected all the material on voyages he could find.He was a consultant to the East India Company and a patentee of the Virginia Company. He instigated numerous publications in the geographical literature of his time and suggested DeBry’s publication of John White’s drawings of America and Hariot’s TRUE REPORT which became Part I of De Bry’s great collection of voyages. His own manuscripts were used by Samuel Purchas for the HAKLUYTUS POSTHUMUS OR PURCHAS his PILGRIMES, the continuation of Hakluyt’s work published in five volumes in 1625. The historical importance of the work cannot be overstated. In the words of Bancroft, this collection "redounds as much to the glory of the English nation as any book that ever was published" and as Dibdin said, "All hail to thee, Richard Hakluyt". ‘With the present work Hakluyt meant to stimulate interest in recent explorations and discoveries. A great promotor of English colonization and commerce, his life was devoted to this cause. He methodically tried to achieve his vision of England"s potential which included the revival of England"s national glory through trade, the colonization of North America, and the growth of the British sea power through the education of seamen. Between 1580 and 1625 Hakluyt was directly or indirectly responsible for the translation and publication of 28 works on geography and exploration. He had a widely distributed network of scholars, publishers, and explorers in and out of England, with whom he exchanged information and ideas. Hakluyt worked hard to gather his information from the primary sources, and he usually provided citations of origins, which was a rare feature of contemporary historical research. Although Hakluyt had the opportunity, he did not use his work to make a strong plea to either the people or the crown to fulfill an imperial ambition. Even though a momentum was bui.
