The Principal Navigations, Voyages, Traffiques and Discoveries of the English Nation

edited by Richard Hakluyt and Edmund Goldsmid

This is a 16-volume work on the history of English exploration and seafaring. It has digitized in page image form by the Early Canadiana Online project, from a microfilmed copy of a print edition published in Edinburgh by E. and G. Goldsmid between 1885 and 1890. Page images are now freely provided on the Internet Archive. It is also being transcribed by volunteers for Project Gutenberg.

This is a "meta-book", which stitches together separate files elsewhere on the Web as they appeared in a previously published book. It is subject to removal if someone produces an integrated edition. If that happens, The Online Books Page will point to the integrated version.
