The Cambridge Travel Books series was created during the early part of the twentieth century, the aim being to illustrate the history of geographical discovery by gathering together eyewitness accounts from selected journeys of importance. All of the volumes in the series are carefully edited, each containing a concise, yet informative, introduction, a timeline, and numerous illustrations. This book concentrates on the European discovery of America, firsthand accounts are provided regarding the first three voyages of Columbus, together with later journeys made by James Cartier, Humfrey Gilbert, and Philip Amadas with Arthur Barlow. This is a fascinating collection that will remain of value to anyone with an interest in the history of American exploration.
