|Notes:||This title was cancelled and in a later issue a new t.p. with various alterations and with date 1599 was substituted for it. On the new t.p. no mention is made of the "victorie atchieued at the citie of Cadiz, 1598," the account of the voyage to Cadiz having been suppressed by order of Queen Elizabeth, after the disgrace of Essex.
Vol. 2 has title: The second volvme of the principal navigations ... to the south and south-east parts of the world, at any time within the compasse of these 1600 yeres ...; v. 3 has title: The third and last volvme of the voyages ... of the English nation, and in some few places, where they haue not been, of strangers, performed within and before the time of these hundred yeeres, to all parts of ... America ... Together with the two ... voyages of Sir Francis Drake and M. Thomas Candish round about the circumference of the whole earth, and diuers other voyages intended and set forth for that course.
