Book Description

Complete but lacking spine, binding is shaky. Includes accounts of discovery of America by Jean Cousin in 1488, dismissal of mutinous captain who later joined Columbus, discovery of Australia by the French, etc.. There is a case for the Portuguese discovering America before the Spanish, the countries were rivals for trading routes and the Portuguese had mapped the Pacific coast of North and South America by the early 16th century. Sadly, manuscript records of Cousin's voyages were stored in Dieppe town hall and destroyed in 1694 during siege. Number of Norman discoverers and their achievements covered in the book.
