Abstract

The first work published by the Hakluyt Society was The Observations of Sir Richard Hawkins, Knt in his Voyage into the South Sea in the Year 1593 (1847). Initially there were two other contenders for publication: a new edition of Hakluyt’s own Divers Voyages, and the 1606 voyage of Sir Henry Middleton. Although the Hawkins was a reprint (it first appeared in 1622), it contains the beginnings of all the scholarly apparatus that would feature in later Society publications: rigorous editing, footnotes, citations, bibliography, maps, and indexes.
