When Portuguese sailor Ferdinand Magellan set sail from Spain in 1519, he believed he could get to the Spice Islands by sailing west through or around the New World. He was right, but what he didn't know was that the treacherous voyage would take him three years and cost him his life. Black-and-white line drawings illustrate Magellan's life and voyage, with sidebars and a time line that enhance readers' understanding of the period.

Fue un marinero y cronista italiano que acompañó a Fernando de Magallanes en su viaje alrededor de la Tierra. Esta crónica es la fuente principal de información sobre el viaje, y el primer documento disponible en Europa acerca del idioma filipino. Pigafetta fue uno de los dieciocho hombres, de entre unos 260 en la tripulación inicial, que sobrevivieron al viaje. Pertenecía a una rica familia de Vicenza;y desde su juventud estudió astronomía, geografía y cartografía. Sirvió además a bordo de las galeras de la orden de Rodas a principios del siglo xvi y hacia 1519 acompañó al nuncio papal, Chieregati, a España, donde conoció al emperador Carlos I. En Sevilla supo del viaje de Magallanes, y tras financiar su pasaje fue admitido en la expedición. Pese a sus iniciales discrepancias con Magallanes, ganó su confianza y le sirvió como lingüista y cartógrafo. Durante el viaje, Pigafetta compiló numerosos datos sobre la geografía, el clima, la flora, la fauna y los habitantes de los lugares recorridos. En el combate en que Magallanes perdió la vida, Pigafetta también fue herido. Sin embargo, logró curarse y regresó a España bajo el mando de Juan Sebastián Elcano a bordo de la Victoria. Llegaron a Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Cádiz) en septiembre de 1522, tres años después de zarpar. Sus experiencias fueron compiladas en este libro, publicado en Venecia en 1536. Pigafetta murió en Vicenza en 1534.

On 10 August 1519, five ships departed from Seville for what was to become the first circumnavigation of the globe. Linked by fame to the name of its captain, Magellan, much of the expedition is known through the travelogue of one of the few crew members who returned to Spain, Antonio Pigafetta. A narrative and cartographic record of the journey (including 23 hand-drawn watercolour charts) from Patagonia to Indonesia, from the Philippines to the Cape of Good Hope, Pigafetta's The First Voyage around the World is a classic of discovery and exploration literature. This volume is based on the critical edition by Antonio Canova. It includes an extensive introduction to the work and generous annotations by Theodore J. Cachey Jr who discusses the marvelous elements of the story through allusions to Magellan's travels made by writers as diverse as Shakespeare and Gabriel García Márquez. However, Cachey is careful to point out that Pigafetta's book is far from just a marvel-filled travel narrative. The First Voyage around the World is also a remarkably accurate ethnographic and geographical account of the circumnavigation, and one that has earned its reputation among modern historiographers and students of the early contacts between Europe and the East Indies. Expertly presented and handsomely illustrated, this edition of Pigafetta's classic travelogue is sure to enlighten new readers and invigorate the imagination as the story has done since it first appeared.

The Age of Exploration, which spanned roughly from 1400 to 1550, was the first time in history that European powers—eyeing new trade routes to the East or seeking to establish empires—began actively looking far past their own borders to gain a better understanding of the world and its many resources. The individuals who set out on behalf of the countries they represented came from a variety of backgrounds, and included master navigators such as Christopher Columbus and Ferdinand Magellan—the latter of whom was the first to circle the globe—as well as the often ruthless conquistadors of the New World such as Francisco Pizarro and Hernan Cortes. The exciting and sometimes tragic lives and journeys of these and many others as well as the battles for empire that arose are chronicled in this engaging volume.

Marco Polo, el icono universal de la aventura y el descubrimiento, ha inspirado más de seis siglos de fascinación popular y de mitologías espurias. Es el más celebrado de los exploradores europeos a Asia, el primer viajero global y el más antiguo de los puentes entre Oriente y Occidente. Sin embargo, su historia es poco conocida y las fuentes originales escritas en más de media docena de lenguas han sido a penas consultadas. En esta brillante obra, la primera biografía realmente documentada de una de las figuras más fascinantes de la historia, Laurence Bergreen reconstruye la odisea de Marco Polo con todo lujo de detalles y con un rigor histórico que transportará al lector a sus viajes por la Ruta de la Seda y a los increíbles episodios de su vida. Siguiendo la ruta de Marco Polo por China y Mongolia, Bergreen ahonda en las controversias que perviven entorno a la leyenda de Marco Polo, desvelando algunas de las incógnitas que rodean su historia y persona y tanteando posibles respuestas a otras que quedan por resolver. A caballo entre la investigación histórica, el relato biográfico y el libro de viajes, Marco Polo es la crónica de un hombre que extendió las fronteras del conocimiento y la imaginación de su época que, a su vez, invita al lector de hoy a viajar a los límites de la historia.

Ferdinand Magellan made one of the most famous ocean voyages of all time. He left Spain in 1519 with five ships. He was trying to find a quicker route to the Spice Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Along the way, he encountered many problems. Many of his men turned against him. He ran into heavy storms. Food and fresh water were often in short supply. But he kept going-until he was killed in battle. A year later, one of his ships returned to Spain. It was the first time anyone had sailed all the way around the world. Although Magellan did not complete the trip, he is given credit, for without his inspired leadership, the voyage would never have succeeded.
