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 The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India.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 1881 volume contains accounts by William Baffin (1584 1622) and others of Baffins voyages exploring the coasts of Greenland and Spitsbergen, and his search for the North-West Passage. Although he did not find a route east, he got considerably further north than previous navigators, and provided much useful information on the conditions and natural resources of the area. His meticulous chart making and record keeping, and his use of lunar observations to calculate longitude, were groundbreaking and remarkably accurate, as later explorers found. *Author: Markham, Clements R./ Clements R., Markham *Series Title: Cambridge Library Collection: Travel and Exploration (Paperback) *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 284 *Publication Date: 2010/05/20 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.51 x 8.50 x 0.63 inches
