Abstract

The Hakluyt Society was established in London in 1846. One major aim was to carry on Hakluyt’s own pioneering work, establishing a legacy that commemorated his name. A programme of printing ‘rare or unpublished Voyages and Travels’ began. From 1847 to 2016, the Society has published an impressive number of books: some 320 titles encompassing Series I, II, and III; 47 in Extra Series (including James Cook publications); and various occasional booklets. Here is Hair’s listing of books from 1847 to 1995. An updated bibliography by R. C. Bridges and R. J. Howgego is located on the Hakluyt Society website.
