Edward Wilson-Lee discusses the remarkable life of Hernando Columbus, son of Christopher, and his creation of the first great universal library in the age of printing. An explorer himself, who spent a year shipwrecked off Jamaica, Hernando associated with Thomas More, Erasmus, and Ferdinand and Isabella. He was also almost entirely responsible for his father’s legend. [212]
