PAYNE, Anthony.

Richard Hakluyt. A guide to his books and to those associated with him, 1580–1625.

In this guide various approaches to Hakluyt’s books are suggested under a number of interrelated headings – his patronage and connections; Italian and French influences; his use of illustration and his presentation of texts; his intentions; and his impact and readership. It is hoped that it will aid a broad appreciation of Hakluyt’s work and the nature of his achievement, notably that his part in the publication of over twenty-five travel books marks a contribution to travel literature far beyond the Principal navigations . . . and discoveries of the English nation for which he is chiefly famous. Extensive notes are provided to indicate further primary and secondary references and, finally, there is a bibliography of the books by or otherwise associated with Hakluyt published between 1580 and 1625.
