This tells the story of a wonderful, changing world, the world of the Renaissance and the Reformation. With Columbus as the principal character, Prince Henry the Navigator, Ivan III, Johann Gutenberg, Queen Isabella, Leonardo da Vinci, Mohammed II, Nomi Mansa, Martin Luther, Vasco de Gama, Copernicus, Michelangelo and dozens of others all come to life as Foster weaves this pageantry of history. It is out of the increasing enlightenment of this era of religious, cultural, and scientific change that discovery and exploration began which would forever change the world as it was known.
This copy is an ex-library book, but it is in excellent shape. The dust jacket,protected by mylar,is mostly intact but has about two inches of the lower binding cut off.
