Overview

M. de Lorgues' History contains the details and events of the Voyages of Colmubus, as well as those of his Life; but the object of the present work being to reproduce his Life, the Voyages, with the exception of the first, and the return one, have been much curtailed, save so far as they have a bearing on his personal acts and character. It is for this reason that the word Voyages has been omitted in the title of the book. The plan I have followed has enabled me to reproduce, as far as it could be done from De Lorgues' History, what I may call a full length, and, I trust, a life-like portrait of the immortal Discoverer of America, who, it is to be hoped, will ere long be solemnly enrolled on the glorious catalogue of the canonized Saints.
