This guide presents a short but highly articulated history of scholarship on Christopher Columbus, in the form of an annotated bibliography arranged under the appropriate topics. The list of entries is radically selective: it contains just under 800 items drawn from many thousands of books and articles published on Columbus in the period covered, 1750-1988. The arrangement is simple: a categorized chronological sequence. First come collections of documents, texts, and studies (Chapter I), then editions and transcriptions of the primary documents (II) and studies of these documents as documents (III). Then come studies of Columbus's life either as a whole or in part (IV); then studies of "Columbiana" (V), i.e., of those various matters like Columbus's ships and his place of burial that lend themselves to separate study divorced from various other matters. After these come bibliographies (VI) and, finally, the historiography of the subject (VII). The items in each section appear chronologically by year to enable the user to follow the historical evolution of the scholarship wherever possible. Within any particular year the items appear alphabetically by author except where the user's understanding can be enhanced by placing related items in another sequence: e.g., the entries for the reviews deemed appropriate for inclusion as individual items come immediately after the book reviewed unless something about the review calls for its placement elsewhere, as with reviews dealing with more than one book. In the final chapter (VII), several review articles surveying Columbus scholarship are listed. Various annotations scattered through the Guide mention still other reviews, although there is no attempt to provide an extensive record of reviews.
