Primary Sources

In addition to works of literature, the Perseus Garner also contains texts of interest to students of history. The Principal Navigations,Voyages, Traffiques, & Discoveries of the English Nation by Richard Hakluyt is an immense compendium of maritime information from the Age of Discovery; The Political Writings of James I is a collection of important writings by the monarch.

The Chronicles of England, Ireland, and Scotland, compiled by Raphael Holinshed and others and first published in 1577, were the source of many of Shakespeare's plays. Outside large research libraries they are seldom available except in abridged versions; the Perseus Garner will eventually include all six volumes as reprinted in 1808 (the present sampling is from Volume IV).
