Ebook description:

In 1519, Ferdinand Magellan, main an expedition of 5 ships and over 270 males, set sail from Spain seeking the Spice Islands. Three years later, one ship returned to port with simply 18 males. Magellan was not among the many survivors, having been killed within the Philippines. But the rest of his get together, fairly inadvertently, had been first to circumnavigate the world. One of the survivors of the voyage was Antonio Pigafetta, a younger Italian nobleman and volunteer member of the crew. His diligent and detailed accounting of the expedition is the fullest, most respected narrative of the voyage and some of the vital geographical paperwork recognized. As R. A. Skelton observes within the Introduction, Pigafetta “delivered to his process of recording a capability for eager remark, sympathetic interpretation, and expressive communication of expertise, which enabled him to provide some of the exceptional paperwork within the historical past of geographical and ethnological discovery.” Fortunately for us, Pigafetta recorded “all of the issues that had occurred day by day throughout our voyage.” In addition to naval and army battles and maneuvers, Pigafetta faithfully documented vegetation and animals, manners and customs, languages and geography of lands and seas by no means earlier than seen by Europeans. What Magellan and his get together did, and what Pigafetta noticed and recorded so effectively, without end modified our idea of the world and vastly enlarged our information of it. This exceptional narrative brings that epochal occasion vividly to life. R. A. Skelton, who ready the wonderful translation and commentary, was previously on the workers of the British Museum
