He later became without doubt the greatest bibliophile and print collector of his day. At the time of his death in 1539, his library in Seville contained over 15,000 books and manuscripts and more than 3,200 prints-the largest such collection in Europe at the time. Today only a fraction of the books survive and the print collection has vanished. Born in Cordoba in 1488, Ferdinand entered the court of Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon six years later, as a page to Prince Juan, where he received a humanist education.

Columbus enjoyed popular subjects and larger works in this medium. The percentage of identified prints, however, remains surprisingly low for intaglios. Thus we must take period taste for woodcuts much more seriously and reckon on a high loss rate, even for a medium comprised of multiples. Parshall makes the valid point that Columbus was not yet a collector of prints in the modern sense, but rather a collector of images based on their y New Testament figures or saints, as well as some informational topics, especially maps. The remaining, wide-ranging essays tackle individual themes.

Ferdinand Columbus, son of Christopher Columbus and author of the first published account of a voyage to the New World, was also the owner of one of the largest private libraries assembled during the Renaissance and the most important early collection of prints. Although the collection has vanished, about half of it has been reconstructed by Mark McDonald from information found in a detailed inventory that survives in Seville. This beautifully produced book catalogues 110 of the most significant prints in Columbus's collection. The introductory chapters discuss Columbus's life and work and show how the reconstruction of his collection has radically transformed our understanding of the print industry in Renaissance Europe.
