They are the documents that irrevocably changed the course of America's history, yet most of us have never heard of them. Christopher Columbus’s Book of Privileges is the compilation of royal charters, papal letters and legal wranglings that became the business deal between Columbus, the Spanish royalty and the Pope on how a New World would be made theirs. So rare is this Book that when it moves within the Library of Congress, which owns it, it goes under armed guard. Here for the first time is the full-color, full-size facsimile of these elegantly lettered pages, with essays from three scholars on their meaning and legacy. It is here that you will find the first written reference to a New World, within a papal letter that we have reproduced as pocketed loose sheets, so you can hold close this extraordinary history. Don't look for this in the bookstores; it's only from Levenger. Read the prologue and watch the video on Levenger.com.
