The article explores the sources from which Richard Hakluyt assembled his Divers Voyages (1582) and the circumstances of the book’s publication. It then places Hakluyt’s work in the context of his religious cosmography and his belief that histories of the discovery of the world should be those of eyewitnesses and unmediated, contrary to the practice of certain other cosmographers.
