Diario di bordo di C. Colombo - J. Arce


Few copies left, now on sale from the archives of the Printer.
Typeset by hand and printed letterpress in the fifth centenary year of the discovery of America (1492-1992). 
The attractiveness of seas never seen before, the unknown ways of life, the need to exalt and even exaggerate the qualities of the new lands to impress the King, all of this transforms what could have been an arid logbook into a testimony of exceptional importance.
