About this Item

Hint of edge and corner wear to the dj, slipcase is lightly scuffed, overall a very crisp and clean used copy, almost new and unread conditon! Dj is nicely preserved in a brand new protective mylar plastic cover! 270 very fine, unmarked and uncreased, historical pages wonderfully enhanced by beautiful black and white and full-color photographs and illustrations! "For five centuries, sailing-ships spanned the ocean waterways around the globe. Before the first round-the-world voyage was made by Magellan's expeditionary force, Christopher Columbus had already accomplished a transatlantic crossing in what could be termed a walnut-shell---for the Santa Maria with her crew of 52 men was probably only 56 feet long, 26 feet wide and had just 3,228 square feet of sail. The voyage lasted 70 days until dawn of October 12th, 1492, when Rodrigo de Triana cried: "Land ahoy!" and thereupon pocketed the 10,000 maravedi which had been promised to the first man to shout out these long-awaited words." Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 007072
