Bequest of Mrs. John Boyd Thacher, 1925
Perhaps the earliest written description of Columbus is included
in Angelo Trevisan's record of the first three voyages of Columbus
and Cabral's 1500 landing on the Brazilian coast. Trevisan served
as a representative of Venetian interests in Spain and for them
he compiled his " Storia," copied almost entirely from the notes
of the historian Peter Martyr.
