23 editions published between 1859 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India. This 1859 volume contains three accounts of the Amazon region, all translated from the Spanish and covering the century 1539-1639: The Expedition of Gonzalo Pizarro to the Land of Cinnamon; The Voyage of Francisco de Orellana down the River of the Amazons; and the New Discovery of the Great River of the Amazons, by Cristoval de Acuña. An editorial introduction provides a context for the narratives, and an appendix lists the principal tribes of the Amazon, and the sources of this information

Los pre-textos de La Florida del Inca, Inca Garcilaso de la Vega( )

2 editions published in 2021 in Spanish and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the long process that led to the publication of La Florida del Inca (Lisbon, 1605), we can presume the existence of several pre-texts: manuscript copies of preliminary or partial versions. The only such documents discovered to date, two summaries of the completed but still handwritten work (c. 1596-1600), are published here as critical editions accompanied by a historical-philological study. The first text, entitled Epítome del descubrimiento de la tierra de la Florida, comes from a manuscript recently discovered at the Hispanic Society of America in New York. It is a summary dictated to a clerk by Garcilaso himself shortly after 1596, when the possibilities of publishing his work, completed around 1592, were difficult due to lack of political and economic patronage. The second text, entitled Historia de los sucesos de la Florida del adelantado Hernando de Soto, is much more extensive than the first. The study of its additions and errors reveals that is not a primitive version of La Florida, as was believed, but rather that it is a summary prepared by the chronicler Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas from a copy of the manuscript with the aim of plagiarizing its content, something he eventually did in his work, Décadas. The joint presentation of both pre-texts is an uncommon achievement in the history of Spanish prose which, beyond the microhistory of La Florida, sheds light on the complicated processes of the publication of Spanish classics"--
