This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1853 edition. Excerpt: ... DISCOVERY OF CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. 369 by the way of the sea? In the middle of the fourteenth century, with the help of the newly-invented compass, some Spaniards ventured out into the Atlantic Ocean further than they had ever been before, and discovered the Canary Islands; but they did not venture to go on. Fifty years after this, a Portuguese captain sailed along the coast of Africa, and got far enough to see a great headland, which he thought must be the end of it. This he called the Cape of Storms, because of the dreadful tempests he had met with there, and which had prevented him from going any further. But when he came back to Portugal, and told the king so, he said the captain ought rather to have called it the Cape of Good Hope, for there was now good hope that the way to India was found. These things set every one thinking about discovering new countries; but no one thought so much, or so well, as a man named B B Christopher Columbus, an Italian, whose wife was the daughter of one of those sailors who had been in the Portuguese voyages, and who had written down for himself very exact accounts of them. Columbus thought a long time, without saying much, about the shape of the earth, and the reasons there were for thinking that, by going out into the Atlantic Ocean, and sailing on towards the west, he should come to land. When he felt quite sure he began to speak of his plan, and try and get some one to send him out in a ship, promising, if they did, he would find for them some new country. First he went to his native city of Genoa, but they would have nothing to do with him. Then he applied to the King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain, but they kept him five years waiting for an answer; and when the answer came, it was a...
