Pedro de Medina spent his life in the vicinity of the Indies Trade House but failed to hold any official position, despite their efforts and controversies in which he was embroiled. Also in 1552 published another of his successful books, Regimiento de navegación

A modern editor rated this Book of the greatness and memorabilia of Spain's Seville cosmographer and humanist "guide First Imperial Spain".

Inevitably accumulates legends but also occasionally reaches the category of priceless testimonial document Populations and monuments up to mid-sixteenth century.

Like the rest of his books this book also met many reissues from the editio princeps of Seville, 1548. In Alcalá de Henares discovered a curious publishing history of this book in the years 1566 and 1568, and then in the years 1590 and 1595, this time as acting as editor and adding the work of Diego Pérez de Mesa.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
