THE Council, on this the nineteenth anniversary of the existence of the Hakluyt Society, have the gratification of being able to announce that several valuable works have been undertaken by Editors since the last General Meeting, and that two are in the hands of the printer. It has been resolved, after careful consideration, to raise the price to Members joining the Society, of a complete set of the volumes, from £13 : 13 to £15 : 15. Some of the earlier works, such as the " Select Letters of Columbus," and " Raleigh's Discovery of Guiana," are nearly out of print, and are therefore becoming very valuable.
Two volumes have been delivered to members since the last General Meeting, namely :---
" The Narrative of the Proceedings of Pedrarias Davila, in the provinces of Tierra Firme or Castilla del Oro, and of the Discovery of the South Sea and the Coasts of Peru and Nicaragua."

" A Description of the Coasts of East Africa and Malabar in the beginning of the Sixteenth Century," by Duarte Barbosa. Translated from an early Spanish
