Title: A History of the Life and Voyages of Christopher Columbus
Author: Washington Irving
Publisher: A. and W. Galignani

Number of Volumes: Complete 4-volume set

Condition/Details: Bound in leather-covered boards with bright embossing, this antique set is a scarce complete first edition of Irving's classic work on the life of Christopher Columbus. The work includes the two original engraved fold-out maps.

The Life and Voyages of Christopher Columbus was published in January 1828. The book was popular in the United States and in Europe and would have 175 editions published before the end of the century. It was also the first project of Irving's to be published with his own name, instead of a pseudonym, on the title page. The Chronicles of the Conquest of Granada was published a year later, followed by Voyages and Discoveries of the Companions of Columbus in 1831. Irving's writings on Columbus are a mixture of history and fiction, a genre now called romantic history. Irving based them on extensive research in the Spanish archives, but also added imaginative elements aimed at sharpening the story. The first of these works is the source of the durable myth that medieval Europeans believed the Earth was flat. (history courtesy of Wikipedia)
