Prince Henry the Navigator

Prince Henry the Navigator
by C. Raymond Beazley

Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons 1901
ISBN/ASIN: 1426494335
Number of pages: 426

Description:
The book gives an account of the progress of geographical knowledge and enterprise in Christendom throughout the Middle Ages, down to the middle or even the end of the fifteenth century, as well as a life of Prince Henry the Navigator, who brought this movement of European Expansion within sight of its greatest successes. It has been attempted to treat Exploration as one continuous thread in the story of Christian Europe from the time of the conversion of the Empire; and to treat the life of Prince Henry as the turning-point, the central epoch in a development of many centuries.
