Edited by Anthony Payne." Includes a colour facsimile of the original letter in the centre pages. The version of the Columbus Letter that London bookseller Bernard Quaritch bought in 1890 was the most valuable item of printed Americana to ever appear on the market. No other copy of this, the earliest edition - a folio printed in Spanish at Barcelona in 1493 - is known. Quaritch and his assistant Michael Kerney originally published "The Spanish Letter of Columbus" in 1981 (now reprinted), being the first authoritative study of the document. But, as Felipe Fernández-Armesto recounts in his introduction (new to this reprint), it nearly got dismissed as a forgery, in era of many forgeries. Quaritch's Letter did contain some errors ­ most of which were the result of assumptions common at the time or deficiencies of knowledge unremedied until later ­ but did its job effectively. It demonstrated, correctly, that the folio in question was printed at Barcelona in 1493 and that all other known editions of the Columbus Letter followed it. This was a service to his firm and to the Lenox Library (now part of the New York Public Library), which purchased the item. This new edition also includes an account of the printing of the original Spanish Columbus Letter in 1493 and, drawing on materials surviving in the Quaritch Archive, the story of how Quaritch, and his son, Alfred, marketed it in America.
