Description

Columbus on Himself presents Columbus' life and voyages through his own self-perception and personal history, as often as possible, by way of his own surviving writings. The selections of Columbus' writings included in this volume were carefully chosen based on their authenticity as well as their autobiographical and self-revelatory nature and include fragments from his `first voyage,' personal letters, and preparations for his third Atlantic crossing. This text is also heavily illustrated and includes maps of Columbus' routes across the Atlantic and his travels in the West Indies among others.
