Ashgate is pleased to be the publisher for the Hakluyt Society.
The Hakluyt Society has published over 350 scholarly volumes of
primary sources on the 'Voyages and Travels' undertaken by
individuals across the world.
The volumes address the geography,
ethnology and natural history of all parts of the globe, covering
all continents and every period over the last two thousand
Many of these invaluable records of inter-continental and
inter-cultural encounter were previously unavailable in any printed
editions. In other cases, the volumes provide English translation
of Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French or Dutch, along with some
in Russian, Greek, Latin, Ethiopic, Chinese, Persian or Arabic.
Books in the series feature numerous maps and illustrations, and
all have an introduction and annotation, giving the reader
scholarly guidance on the content within the context of global
development and world history.
The First Series comprises 100 volumes, published between 1846
and 1899; the Second Series, published between 1899 and 2000,
comprises 190 volumes. The Third Series inaugurated in 1999, has a
