Collection of 40 letters, permits, ordinances, capitulations, contracts and other documents from a number of archive collections reveals the policy of the Spanish Crown in allowing the process of discovery begun by Columbus to be opened up to others; it becomes apparent that the continuing process of discovery was carried out not by the Castilian aristocracy but rather by professional navigators with the skills needed to open up other worlds.
