Italian involvement with the Americas before 1800 was much more extensive than is usually realized. Columbus's voyages were but the first of a long series of interrelationships. 127 items with full descriptions showing the Italian contribution to America from 1492 to 1800. Explorers, superb map makers, political thinkers, travelers, physicians, scientists, and translators are among the figures represented here. Many excellent illustrations, especially of maps. Beautifully printed at the Stinehour Press.
