Fine. 4to. Facsimile reprint of the 1929 London edition. 304pp., with 13 maps. Bound in simulated calf. Many fundamental transactions of human history are obscure, but few are so imperfectly recorded as the discovery of the shores and islands of the Atlantic Ocean by European navigators. The present volume differs in form from the others of the series. There is no major narrative of the English discovery of North America comparable to Drake's 'World Encompassed' or Raleigh's 'Guiana. ' The story lies in a heterogenous collection of short pieces, administrative documents, contemporary letters and extracts from histories and commentaries written in the XVIth century.
