So noble a captain : the life and times of Ferdinand Magellan by Charles McKew Parr( Book )
16 editions published between 1953 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 680 libraries worldwide
Three years after our own continent was discovered, a Portuguese by the name of Ferdinand Magellan began an extraordinary career of exploration. His voyage accomplished what Columbus had planned, and perhaps no voyage in history is more dramatic and exciting. Powerful political interests were behind the exploration, and, as usual with political ventures, powerful financial interests were involved: the great banking houses of Augsburg, Venice, and Antwerp, the vast fortunes of the ambitious Bishop Fonseca. Portugal and Spain were in disagreement about their spheres of influence in the East. And Magellan hoped to settle the controversy by reaching the Spice Islands from the West, via a strait at the extreme south of South America. From his youth he had been trained to the sea. He was now an experienced navigator, for he had sailed to India and among the Indies via Africa. Renouncing his own nationality, he made a contract with Charles V of Spain which would give him one-twentieth of the clear profits, and in 1518 he set forth with high hopes. He and his crew of noble hidalgos, priests, workmen, and common sailors -- seekers of fortunes or of souls -- sailed across the Atlantic and down the east coast of South America to the La Plata estuary, exploring as they went. - Jacket flap

Pizarro, or, The conquest of Peru as related by a father to his children and designed for the instruction of youth by Joachim Heinrich Campe( Book )
2 editions published in 1836 in Portuguese and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Campe sah seine "Entdeckung von Amerika" als Schluß- oder Höhepunkt einer Reihe, die mit der "Kleinen Kinderbibliothek" ihren Anfang nahm und der Entwicklung des kindlichen Lesers folgte. Wie schon der "Robinson" ist auch die "Entdeckung" in eine fiktive Rahmenhandlung eingebunden: Der Vater erzählt seinen Kindern von Cortez und Pizarro. "Denn wenn irgend etwas recht eigentlich dazu geschickt ist, in einem jungen Kopfe aufzuräumen, seine Welt- und Menschenkenntniß auf eine leichte und angenehme Weise zu erweitern, den Hang zu romanhaften Träumereien, zu welchen so viele andere Modebücher ihn einladen, zu schwächen, einen heilsamen Ekel gegen das faselnde, schöngeisterische, empfindelnde, Leib und Seele nach und nach entnervende Geschwätz der besagten Modebücher, und hingegen einen wünschenswürdigen Geschmack an ernsthaften und nützlichen Unterhaltungen einzuflößen, so sind es gewiß solche Reisebeschreibungen, bei deren Verfertigung man, sowol in Betracht der Sachen, als auch des Vortrages, dieses jugendliche Alter einzig und allein unverrückt in Gesicht gehabt hätte." (Von dem Zwecke dieses Buches, S. V, VI). Auf den letzten Seiten der vorliegenden Ausgabe sind 3 herausfaltbare Kupfertafeln eingefügt, auf denen Karten von Mexiko, den mittelamerikanischen Inseln und Südamerika dargestellt sind. (AK) <dt.>

Las Siete Partidas es un cuerpo normativo redactado en Castilla, durante el reinado de Alfonso X (1252-1284), con el objetivo de conseguir una cierta uniformidad jur&#237;dica del Reino. Su nombre original era Libro de las Leyes, y hacia el siglo XIV recibi&#243; su actual denominaci&#243;n, por las secciones en que se encuentra dividida. Las Siete Partidas constan como su nombre lo indica de siete partidas propiamente dichas, cada una contiene sus leyes respectivas. Partida I. Cuenta con 24 t&#237;tulos y se ocupa de las formas de producci&#243;n del Derecho y la religi&#243;n cat&#243;lica. Partida II. Consta de 31 t&#237;tulos y se ocupa de los emperadores, de los reyes y otros nobles. Su contenido es, por tanto, fundamentalmente pol&#237;tico. Partida III. Son 32 t&#237;tulos. Esta partida trata del derecho procesal (agentes judiciales, pruebas, sentencias, apelaciones, revocaci&#243;n y ejecuci&#243;n de las mismas, etc.), e incluye, con gran acopio de modelos documentales. Partida IV. Son 27 t&#237;tulos que se ocupan del derecho de familia: matrimonio, causas de divorcio, filiaci&#243;n, tutela de menores, etc. Tambi&#233;n incluye dentro del concepto de familia, las situaciones de dependencia por raz&#243;n de servicio (criados y siervos), de vasallaje o de amistad. Partida V. Cuenta con 15 t&#237;tulos y habla sobre los pr&#233;stamos, cambios, compras y otros contratos, as&#237; como a la forma de resolver los conflictos que de ellos se derivasen. Es la Partida que se ocupa, por tanto, del derecho civil y las obligaciones. Partida VI. Dispone de 19 t&#237;tulos que se ocupan del derecho civil y las sucesiones. M&#225;s en concreto, de todo lo referente a los testamentos, herencias, desheredamiento, mandas, particiones y tutela de bienes de menores. Partida VII. Cuenta con 34 t&#237;tulos y trata del derecho penal en general y de los delitos. Tambi&#233;n se considera el tema de las prisiones, tortura de presos y, lo que resulta m&#225;s sorprendente, el estatuto de moros y jud&#237;os
