The Voyages of Cadamosto and Other Documents on Western Africa in the Second Half of the Fifteenth Century Hardback

Edited by G. R. Crone

Part of the Hakluyt Society, Second Series series

Description

Translation and edition. The additional documents, in translation, comprise a letter by Antoine Malfante, 1447, an account of the voyages of Diogo Gomes, c. 1456, and extracts from JoAGBPo de Barros, Decadas de Asia. This is a new print-on-demand hardback edition of the volume first published in 1937.

Owing to technical constraints it has not been possible to reproduce the map of "North-western Africa in the fifteenth century" which appeared in the first edition of the work.
