Hakluytus posthumus or Purchas his pilgrimes by Samuel Purchas( )

41 editions published between 1625 and 2014 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Hakluyt's 12-volume Principal Navigations Voyages Traffiques and Discoveries of the English Nation, originally published at the end of the sixteenth century, and reissued by the Cambridge Library Collection in the edition of 1903-5, was followed in 1625 by Hakluytus Posthumus or, Purchas his Pilgrimes, now reissued in a 20-volume edition published in 1905-7. When first published in four folio volumes, the work was the largest ever printed in England. An Anglican priest, Samuel Purchas (1577-1626) was a friend of Hakluyt, and based his great work in part on papers not published by Hakluyt before his death. As well as being a wide-ranging survey of world exploration, it is notable as an anti-Catholic polemic, and a justification of British settlement in North America. Volume 10 includes voyages to India, the East Indies and Japan, as well as the notes of the famous traveller Thomas Coryat 'on his last and fatal voyage'
