Easton Press. Norwalk, CT. 1990. E. F. Benson "Ferdinand Magellan" Leather Bound Collector's Edition, part of Easton Press's The Library of Great Lives. This Collector's Edition is in pristine unread condition. Very Fine without any flaws. With a forward by John Rousmaniere.


A book which details Magellan's supreme achievement with his vessel the 'GOLDEN HIND': he was the first person in the world who demonstrated, not by theory, but in terms of ships actually sailing on the sea, that the world is round. An enthralling and exciting book.

Ferdinand Magellan ( Fernando de Magallanes, 1480 - 27 April 1521) was a Portuguese explorer who organised the Spanish expedition to the East Indies that resulted in the first circumnavigation of the Earth, completed by Juan Sebastion Elcano.
