"Books abound on the life of Christopher's Columbus. Yet little attention has been given to the writings of Columbus himself. In view of the dissemination which the famous Colombian shipboard diaries have had in many translations, it is surprising that so few people in the Americas and in Spain are even aware of the existence of the only book which the Admiral wrote, a work was so fascinating and mysterious a title: Book of Prophecies.
On the occasion of the QuinCentenary of Columbus's first voyage to America, CLIE publishers makes available to the English speaking world, for the first time in 500 years, the Colombian writing which most reveals the heart and mind of the great navigator, as well as the most powerful motivating cause which inspired his vision of the Indies." - From a blurb on the book.
