Abstract:

" ... when Richard Hakluyt was in attendance at the French court he heard that in voyaging, exploration and adventure his British countrymen were despised for their 'sluggish security'. With tremendous industry he collected 'The Principall Navigations, Voiages and Discoveries of the English Nation made by Sea or over Land to the most remote and farthest distance quarters of the earth, at any time within the compass of these 1500 years (1589)'. In gathering his wealth of material, Hakluyt was able to give point to the prowess of his nation in their natural element, the sea, for although England had lagged behind others in maritime discovery, she quickly outpaced Spain, Portugal and France."--Jacket.
