'Ferdinand Magellan' is an oustanding book about the great Portuguese explorer. It was written by E.F. Benson (1867 – 1940), a British writer of fiction, reminiscences, and biographies. In his preface, the author underscores Magellan's place in history: "He was the first person in the world who demonstrated not by theory, but in terms of ships actually sailing on the sea, that this world is round (or thereabouts), and that by sailing out beyond the known ultimate of the West, a voyager will arrive at the known ultimate of the East." This book is from the library of York University in Canada and was digitised by the Internet Archive.(15 MiB, PDF, 282 pages)
