NEW WORLD ENCOUNTERS. Stephen Greenblatt.


Berkeley: University of California Press, 1993. First Edition. Hardcover. "Beginning with a newly discovered version of the letter in which Columbus announced his landfall - a version translated into English for the first time - this volume pays unusually close attention to the medium in which the New World was represented. The contributors share the conviction that writing is not a transparent window through which events of the time can be viewed, but a strategic part of those events." Textual illustrations. Tall octavo. Original burgundy cloth binding, with gilt titles. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Fine / Fine. Item #70367
