Editorial Reviews


“This book glows with the fully assimilated learning of the polymath Gerbi, whose command and understanding of the literature of various cultures enlightens every page. Neither a notice nor a full-fledged review could do justice either to the brilliance of the book or to the felicity of Moyle’s translation. The book must be read to be appreciated.”
Early American Literature

“A fascinating work, it is divided into two parts: the first deals with eleven writers from Columbus to Verrazzano, while the remaining two-thirds of the book deal with the other treasure from the Indies—Oviedo’s writings and observations. . . . This prodigiously learned work is full of good things."
Bulletin of Hispanic Studies

“This is an extraordinary work in excellent translation. . . . An expert will know what to look for and how to evaluate the entire volume. The grade it receives is bound to be high. Others may simply delight in the unexpected elements of quadrivium and trivium that continually jump from the pages of this book. . . . Thorough, valuable, and exciting.”
Journal of American History
