Henry Edward John Stanley Baron Stanley. Our captain sent one of his men towards him, whom he charged to sing and leap like the other to reassure him, and show him friendship. This he did, and immediately the sailor led this giant to a little island where the captain was waiting for him; and when he was before us he began to be astonished, and to be afraid, and he raised one finger on high, thinking that we came from heaven.

The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India. This 1874 volume contains an account of the first circumnavigation of the globe in 1519-1522 by Antonio Pigafetta, a Venetian member of Magellan's expedition. It also contains Pigafetta's treatise on navigation, and other material relating to Magellan's voyage, including log-books, records by the pilot and others, and details of the crew and the cost of the fleet. Pigafetta vividly recorded the geography, climate, flora, fauna and the inhabitants of the places that the expedition visited, as well as Magellan's death in the Philippines.

This is better than nothing which is what was available when I was a kid. However, some of the pages that don't show well are not due to the age of the original text but rather due to poor copying technique. Imagine if a robot copied a book that doesn't sit properly on the scanner and didn't do any quality control. About 3% of pages are partly or fully unreadable due to poor copying. I am happy to have this book and I'm sure there aren't enough people who are to pay for an editor. Thank you, Kessinger Publishing.

I read the PDF for this.

This is amazing stuff, to be sure. The different takes on the voyage are all interesting and illuminating. This is a total must for any fan of early world exploration. And the Hakluyt Society, the original publishers, is the primo publisher for naval exploration over the past 200 years.

This is the most direct presentation of the original source material as you're going to get in English.

Some of the footnotes are only interesting if you're a serious scholar since they're in the language of an original, non-English manuscript.

The last few pages are appendices and are barely interesting since they're in some foreign language, I think it's Portuguese.

This includes an index, which is nice.
