The Hakluyt Society republished a large number of works on travel and exploration.

These volumes are regularly offered second hand, but at rather high prices. Of the earlier editions facsimile editions are available, which may also be clearable. We list all pre-1928 works here. If a text is already in Project Gutenberg, we link to its entry in the PG catalog. If a work is available on-line outside PG, we link to it using a short link after the entry, like [this].

Some of the volumes now started to appear at the Internet Archive.
