Overview

With this collection, students of both the historical and the mythical Columbus will now have conveniently on microfiche the bulk of the Library of Congress's great collection of printed documents and writings on the discoverer and his times. UPA has filmed approximately 505 titles that are of lasting interest either for what they tell of Columbus or what they relfect of their own times. The collection includes mostly 19th- and 20th- century works up to the early 1920s. Most titles are long out of print. Part 1: Works in English includes among 235 titles better-known writers such as Henry Harrisse, John Boyd Thacher, Washington Irving, and Justin Winsor. There are historical monographs and bibliographies, orations, poems, plays, novels, some juvenila, anonymous popular works, and translations of influential writers such as the poet Alphonse M. L. de Lamartine and Columbus' son, Fernando Colon.
