088882131X 253 pages. Selected bibliography. "Poses some intriguing questions and provides some startling answers. Was Columbus really a merchant sailor from Genoa, the son of humble wool-carders? Or was he, as the author suggests, possibly a French pirate, or a Mallorcan navigator, or even the scion of some royal or noble family?... Offers a convincing explanation of Columbus's real mission - one of the most romantic and evocative in history." - from back cover. Above-average wear. Library markings upon half-title page.
