Abstract:

Photostatic copies of eight letters from the Riccardian MS 1910, containing accounts of the ships returning from Pedro Alvares Cabral's expedition to Africa and India in 1500-1501, and Vespucci's reports of his voyage to South America.

The letter of June 27, 1501 sent to Florence by Bartolomeo Marchioni, a powerful Florentine banker in Lisbon, relates the return home of 4 caravels from the Cabral expedition and gives details on the spices and other exotic items they carry. Vespucci's letter of June 4, 1501 also describes the route navigated by Cabral, northeast from the Cape of Good Hope and along the coasts of the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf to Calicut, India. His 1502 letter from Lisbon to his patron, Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de'Medici in Florence, contains his account of the third voyage which he made for the king of Portugal. Following a route southwest from the coast of Africa, Vespucci reaches the South American continent, below the Tropic of Capricorn; and provides details on the lands and inhabitants he discovers. Additional letters discuss other voyages, and there is also a letter [1513?] from King Manuel of Portugal to Pope Leo X.
