Description
Abundantly illustrated with color photographs, period engravings, and reproductions of art, this history chronicles the age of exploration—particularly the three decades from 1492 to 1522, when the map of the world was substantially enlarged by navigators from Columbus to Magellan, and the later 18th century, when James Cook nearly completed it. The book further enhances these dramatic episodes in the European search for spices, gold, slaves, and empire with nine removable facsimile documents, including a letter from Columbus, the title page of Cortés's second dispatch to Charles V, and an extract from Captain Cook's diary.
