Exploration Primary Sources: The Hakluyt Society

Publishing edited volumes of explorations and voyages of discovery since the mid-19th century, the Hakluyt Society offers researchers access to some of the world’s most famous journals; in many cases the documents are presented for the first time through the Society. They span space and time, from a 16th century trip to Russia to a history of the 1402 French conquest of the Canary islands.  An extensive bibliography of all published tomes is available online for easy perusal; the volumes from 1847-1921 are all online as well totaling well over 100 volumes of primary sources. In addition to these scholarly works, the Society’s Journal contains smaller edited works of interest, such as an 1826 journal of a 2700 mile trip across North America.
