|Christopher Columbus, |
De insulis nuper in mari Indico repertis.
Bound with Carlo Verardi,
Basel: Johann Bergmann de Olpe, 1494.
|Columbus's letter occupies only seven and one-half leaves of this volume. The first, and presumably most important, text in this edition is a prose piece by Verardi on Ferdinand of Aragon's 1492 capture of Granada. This portrait of Ferdinand is the frontispiece.|
