Compilation de récits de voyages, depuis Christophe Collomb (xxxx) à Dodington (1755). D'après la préf. du trad., ce recueil, qui contient des récits de navigateurs, est en quelque sorte le complément du recueil de l'abbé de Prévost qui contient aussi et surtout les "voyages de terre". Dans la forme abrégée de Barrow, ces récits "sont dégagés des variations de l'aiguille aimentée, des journaux minutieux de tous les changements de temps, & de beaucoup d'autres parties, très-bonnes pour instruire des navigateurs ; mais inutiles pour ceux qui ne veulent pas entreprendre de faire les mêmes voyages." (vol. 5, p. III)
