Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

PARADOXICALLY, IN JOHN STEWART COLLIS'S WORDS, 'THE GREAT DISCOVERER HATED DISCOVERY. HE HAD THE GREATEST OBJECTION TO DISCOVERING ANY CONTINENT EXCEPT ASIA, OR ANY SEA EXCEPT THE INDIAN OCEAN'. TO HIS DYING DAY, COLUMBUS INSISTED THAT HE HAD VINDICATED THE GEOGRAPHICAL WORLD-VIEW OF THE MIDDLE AGES AND DISCOVERED THE EASTERN END OF A SINGLE LAND MASS BY TRAVELLING WEST FROM SPAIN. JOHN STEWART COLLIS IS RENOWNED FOR HIS INIMITABLE STYLE COMBINING HIS UNIQUE GIFTS OF VISIONARY POET AND SCIENTIST. HE SEES CLEARLY THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MAN AND NATURE; AN ABILITY WHICH MAKES HIM THE IDEAL BIOGRAPHER OF THIS GREAT ADVENTURER TESTING THE THEN STILL SPECULATIVE ROUNDNESS OF THE EARTH. 30/01/89 PROD LAUNCH--6000X65PX$3.99(5000X76P).
