It was Gabriel Garcia Marquez who provided a memorable introduction to Pigafetta's book when he evoked, at the beginning of his 1982 Nobel Lecture, the Renaissance traveler "who went with Magellan on the first voyage around the world", and wrote "a strictly accurate account that nonetheless resembles a venture into fantasy". Marquez's citation of Pigafetta is certainly the most resonant in a long line of prestigious literary responses. From Shakespeare's Tempest to contemporary "magical realism", such allusions have enabled the editor of this new translation to trace an intriguing continuity in the literary category of the marvelous. But Pigafetta's book is far from being just a marvel-filled travel narrative or a hagiographic text honoring the legendary explorer. Indeed, The First Voyage is much more: its remarkably accurate ethnographic and geographical account of the circumnavigation has guaranteed its status among modern historiographers and students of the earliest contacts between Europeans and the East Indies.

Not illustrated. 1874 edition. Excerpt: ... position, had refused to entertain Magellan's desire for employment at sea, or his projects of discovery, from which no immediate profit was to be expected. This is apparent from the statement of Barros, Decad. in, lib. v, cap. viii, that letters of Magellan to Francisco Serrano wrere found after the death of the latter in Maluco, in which Magellan said that he should soon see him; and, if it were not by way of Portugal, it would be by way of Castile, and that Serrano should therefore wait for him there. Further on, Barros says that recourse to Castile appears from these letters to have been in Magellan's mind some time before the occurrence of the king's dismissal of his business: and that this was shown by his always associating with pilots, and occupying himself with sea-charts. The Portuguese exaggerated very much the injury they expected to result, and, later, which they thought had resulted from Magellan's voyage, which could not change the position of the Moluccas, nor consequently the Portuguese title to them; but the apprehensions which they felt, arose from their fear of others sharing in the spice trade, and from the limited geographical knowledge of the period, which left both parties very much in doubt as to the true position of those islands, or as to the extent of the circumference of the globe. The question of the exact position of the Moluccas was not definitely ascertained till much later, though a compromise was arrived at in 152.9 by the treaty between Spain and Portugal, by which Charles V gave up whatever rights to the Moluccas he imagined he possessed, to Portugal, for a sum of three hundred and fifty thousand ducats.1 As late as 1535, Gaspar Correa mentions, 'tom, iii, p. 661, a Dominican friar in Portuguese India, .

“...a fundamental work for anyone who desires both the English version of the story of this path-breaking voyage and an up-to-date evaluation of the scholarly production about the voyage that has appeared during the last four and a half centuries.”—Lewis Hanke, Columbia University Today when men orbit the globe in a few minutes, it is difficult to imagine the awe that accompanied the news of the three years’ voyage completing man’s first circumnavigation of the earth. Wonder and amazement marked the contemporary accounts of Magellan’s hazardous adventure; and now the three best accounts have been gathered into one volume and provided with an introduction and commentary based on the most accurate historical information available by an eminent scholar of Hispanic studies. Included are translations of the accounts by Antonio Pigafetta, one of the eighteen actual survivors of the 241 who undertook the voyage; by the secretary of Emperor Charles V, Maximilian of Transylvania, who wrote a long report based on first-hand accounts to his father, the Cardinal of Salzburg; and by Gaspar Correa, a Portuguese historian, who twenty years later wrote of the voyage mixing fact with fanciful tales of the Far East. Several of the maps prepared for this edition are in the style of the period and represent conceptions of the world as seen by cartographers and navigators at the beginning of the Age of Discovery.
