John Stevens Cabot Abbott - Columbus artwork Columbus
John Stevens Cabot Abbott
Genre: Specialty Travel
Publish Date: 31 December 1876
Publisher: Public Domain
Seller: Public Domain

Leest verrassend makkelijk weg voor een boek uit 1875. Abbott maakt zich af en toe schuldig aan het ophemelen van zijn onderwerp (onverschrokken, visionair, waardig etc etc) maar sluit ook zijn ogen niet voor de wreedheden van de Europese 'ontdekkers' tegenover de oorspronkelijke bewoners van de Caraïben. Velt uiteindelijk het wat obligate oordeel dat we Columbus 'in zijn tijdgeest' en in het licht van de toen heersende opvattingen moeten zien.
