Englifh,

Hackluyt a minifter by profellion, is the firfl: englifhman that
compiled any colle6tion of travels now extant : he himfelf was no
traveller, but only delivers what he could gather from others.
His work was publifhed in the year 1598, and reaches down to
?597 i ^^ *^ divided into three parts, compoling one thick volume
in folio. The firfl contains the following voyages: i. K. Ar-

Vanquilhing the fpanifh armada, an. 1588. 39. Voyagie to

which voyages are not of much moment or authority, and the
two laft are warlike expeditions, which were not properly placed
among difcovcries; the reft of the volume is filled with treaties,
patents and letters. Thus it appears all thefe, except the two
iaft are northern voyages. The fecond volume contains voyages
to the ftraits, coaft of Afric, and the Eaft- Indies. Of thef^
the greatelt part are pilgrimages to Jerufalem, many of very
little moment, expeditions for the Holy Land, common trading
voyages, that have little or nothing of curiofity, and fea-fights ;
all which being a great nunle , and of no moment, are not
worth inferting here: the fmall remaining part are voyages to
Guinea, and other courts of Afric, and fome few to the Ealt-In-
dies ; of all which there is a. much better account in Purchas and
others, and therefore they are not inferied in this place. Befid:-?,
as in the firfl part, there are abundance of letters, difcourfes,
patent', and fuch original papers. The third volume, not to
rr.ennon many of no worth, has thefe confidernble voyages, Se-
haftian Cubot's to north America, three of lir Martin Forbilher
to the north-weft palTag'^, two of Davis's to the north- weft, Horc
and Gilbert to N^wfo-mdland ; Granpre, and others to the iflc
of R;nrea ; three of Jacques Cartier to Newfoundland, Canada,
^'C. Roberval to Canada ; Amadas, Balow, Greenvil and others,
to Vir^jir.ia; Verazzano, Ribault, Laudonnierre, and Gourges
to Florida ; Marco dc Nica, Francis Vafques Coronado, and An-

parts of the Weft-Indies ; Raleigh to the ifland Trinidad, and to
Guiana ; Hawkins, Reniger, Hare, Lancafter to Brafil ; two
engliOimen and Drake up the river of Plate; Drake round the
world; Silva through the llraits of Magellan ; Winter into the
South-fea ; Fenton to Brafd ; Withrington to 44. degrees of
fouth latitude ; Candifli round the world ; Ship Delight to the
ftraits of Magellan ; Candilh his laft voyage. Thus have we
briefly run over the contents of Hackluyt's collcdion, precifcly
fetting down all in the firft volume, to give the reader a tafte
of the author's method of heaping together all things good and
bad, which has been abridged in relation to the fecond and third
volumes, to avoid being tedious. The collc6lion is fcarcc and
valuable for the good there is to be picked out ; but it might be
wiflied the author had been lefs voluminous, delivering what was
really authentic and ufeful, and not ftuffing his work with fo
many ftories taken upon truft, fo many trading voyages that
have nothing new in them, fo many warlike exploits not at all
pertinent to his undertaking, and fuch a multitude of articles,
charters, privileges, letters, relations, and other things little to
the purpofe of travels and difcoveries.

Purchas was the next great englifh colle£lor of travels after
Hackluyt, whom he has imitated too much, fwelling his work
into five volumes in folio. The whole colledion is very valu-
able, as having preferved many confiderable voyages which might
othcrwife have periihed. But to particularize with him, as has
been done before with Hackluyt ; his firll: volume is divided
into five books. The firft contains the travels of the ancient
patriarchs, the apoftles and philofophers, with the warlike ex-
peditions of Alexander the great, and other princes ; to which
is added an inquiry into languages, and an account of the fe-
vcral forts of religions. The fecond book treats of navigation
in general, the difcoveries made by Henry prince of Portugal,
king John of Portugal, Columbus of the Wcit and Gama of "the
Ealt-Indies; then follow Magellan, Drake, Candilli, Noort
and Spilbergen round the world, and Le Maircs difcovery of
the new (trait of his name. The third book is filled with fome
private voyages to the Eaft-Indies, and the feven firft made by
the eaft-india company, with dcfcriptions, and an account of all
thofe parts, their product, trade, government, religion, tvc. but
all, as delivered by the firft that reforted ihcre and made no long
ftay, imperfed, and far fhort of what we have had fince. I'he
ft)urth book contains the 8th voyage of the eaft-india company,
capt. Saris to Japan ; Finch to India; 9th, loth, nth and I2tli
voyages of the company ; obfervations for failors ; Steel to the
mogul's court ; Milward to India; Pevton to India; an extradl
