Books Info:

Under the Crown free pdf Excerpt from Under the Crown: American History- Selections From the Youth's Companion The fascinating book which led to the discovery of America was the "Travels of Marco Polo," describing Asia about the year 1300. This deeply impressed the imaginative and religious mind of Columbus, and furnished him with an irresistible argument when he asked the assistance of Queen Isabella of Spain. When he spoke to King Ferdinand on the subject, no doubt he dwelt upon the spices, the rubies and the gold, and of the king, whose palaco roof was made of the precious metal- but when he spoke to the queen, a devoted and enthusiastic Catholic, we may be sure that he laid the greatest stress upon the story in Marco Polo, of the great emperor who had asked the Pope to send him a hundred Christian priests. We may be quite certain that this was the argument which induced the queen to favor the expedition and offer her jewels to promote it. I do not doubt that Columbus himself fully appreciated the rubies and the gold described by Marco Polo. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
