|Johannes Boemus, |
I costumi le leggi et l'usanze di tutte le genti.
Venice: Dominico & Alvise Giglio, 1566.
|The fourth book of this translation includes new material on Florida, the Caribbean, Mexico, and parts of South America. None of this material is new in any absolute sense; it is liberally cribbed from earlier voyage accounts and chronicles. What this volume allows us to see is how the Indians became part of the intellectual furniture of early modern European observers.|
