Beginning with the earliest images of America from the voyages of Columbus, he examines how scientific, academic, and novelistic discourse on the Orinoco has engendered a chronologically layered archive (a prime source of information for cultural elites) and a repository of images and impressions (its topos). At the same time, he considers how the rise of mercantilism and globalism has shaped the organization and distribution of both archive and topos."--Jacket." ;
