Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Scenes and Incidents of Domestic and Foreign Travel: With Sketches in Natural History, and Poetical Selections This celebrated navigator was born in the city of Genoa, about the year 1436. His parents were persons of humble station, but honest and industrious; his father following the occupation of a wool-comber in that city. Christopher was the eldest of four children, - a sister and two brothers, the names of the latter being Bartholomew and Diego. As his parents were poor, they could not afford him an extensive education. However, he made up in ardour what he wanted in opportunity. He was sent to Pavia, then a great seat of learning in Lombardy; but the short time that he remained there was barely sufficient to give him the rudiments of the necessary sciences; his attention having been principally directed to those necessary to fit him for a maritime life. And it was at this period that he first evinced that strong inclination for the sea, which forms a striking feature in the early character of great navigators. He began his nautical career at an early age. He is supposed to have been principally engaged in the Mediterranean, sometimes in voyages of commerce, sometimes in warlike contests between the Italian states, at other times in expeditions against the infidels.
