Hakluyt Society Series II, Series III and Extra Series original editions

Availability: The list below shows Hakluyt Society Second, Third and Extra Series titles that in December 2013 were still available in their original editions.  However, please be advised that stocks of most of the titles in the Second Series, as well as a number of early Third Series volumes, are now in single figures and can go out-of-print at any time. Every attempt will be made to keep this list up-to-date but, if in doubt, you are advised to confirm in advance of placing your order by contacting . Any titles not listed below are definitely out-of-print, but those of the First and Second Series may be obtained from Ashgate as print-on-demand volumes (above).

The price to non-members of all original editions shown below is £65 per volume (£58.50 if ordered online) unless shown otherwise (e.g. for some multi-volume sets and Extra Series).
