Item description for The Histories of the Life and Deeds of the Admiral Christopher Columbus attributed to his Son Fernando Colon (Repertorium Columbianum) by Luzzana Caraci...
The Histories of the Life and Deeds of the Admiral Christopher Columbus, attributed to his son Fernando Colon (1488-1539), is one of the most important first-hand sources for Columbus's voyages, and for the intellectual and political context in which they occurred. Originally written in Spanish, it was published in Venice in 1571 in an Italian translation by Alfonso de Ulloa. Drawing on different sources from those used by Las Casas and Oviedo in their contemporary narratives, it provides a comprehensive view of the entire Columbian enterprise, and forms a fitting conclusion to the Repertorium Columbianum.
