Index. 8vo, red cloth, copper lettering to spine. “Alejandro Malaspina: Portrait of a Visionary chronicles the life of an eighteenth-century Italian navigator in the service of Spain where thirst for knowledge and adventure took him on a five-year voyage throughout Spain's Pacific possessions. On his return he was imprisoned because his ideasfor establishing a modern enlightened state in Spain ran counter to those of the entrenched imperial bureaucracy. Using Malaspina's writings, including the journal of his great voyage and his personal letters, John Kendrick makes the life of this extraordinary individual available to the English reader for the first time.” - from the dj.
