This finding list is arranged alphabetically by authors in three groups, Geography, Anthropology, Hydrography. The contents of the more important collections of voyages, such as Hakluyt's and Purchas's, have a subarrangement, alphabetically by authors.

Under Geography will be found titles of voyages around the world, collections of voyages, polar expeditions, but not titles of books of travel to any particular country. Such books have been classed in this library in History, and their titles have appeared in the Finding List of History.
