about

Nautical historian Kendrick knows that Malaspina (1754-1809) was a Spanish navigator, commander, scientist, and loyal naval officer, because he was an assistant editor for the Hakluyt Society translation of his journal. But here he focuses instead on the Spaniard's ideal for the future of America, his philosophy, and misguided and ultimately futile advocacy of a new form of government for Spain and her empire, which he expressed in personal letters to friends. The 1999 edition was cloth bound. Distributed in the US by University of Washington Press. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
