Summary

A relation of English discoveries up to the year 1600.

Notes

The second volume is dated 1599, the third 1600.

"The second part of this second volume" begins new pagination on 3A1 of vol. 2.

A reprint of the general title page, ca. 1798, misspells the author's name as "Hackluyt".

The folded engraved map has legend in cartouche at lower right "Thou has here (gentle reader) a true hydrological description of so much of the world as hath beene hitherto discouered ..". It comes in two states: (1) without and (2) with a cartouche in lower left referring to the discovery of Sir Francis Drake. The map is often lacking from the book and may quite possibly not have been issued with it.

The section on the conquest of Cadiz by Essex (vol. 1, p. 607-619, [1]) was ordered suppressed by Queen Elizabeth in 1599. It comes in the following states: (1) numbered as above, chain lines spaced (a) 20-25mm. apart or (b) 27-30mm. apart. (2) As in (1) but in a photographic facsimile with muddy and flat appearance and chain lines spaced 25-27mm. apart. (3) A reprint of ca. 1720, pages numbered 607-620. (4) A reprint of ca. 1795, pages numbered 607-417 [sic], [1]. (5) Lacking entirely (cancelled).

Another issue (STC 12626a) has a cancel title page omitting mention of the Cadiz victory.

"STC 12626" on UMI microfilm reel 1575 is actually 12626a.
