The European Discovery and Exploration of America from Columbus’s First Voyage to the Visual Exploration of the American West by Edward S. Curtis: An Annotated Bibliography of Travel Accounts held in the Rare Book Collection.

by Leousis, Kasia S.

Abstract (Summary)
This paper will focus on travel accounts held in the Rare Book Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. These accounts deal with the European discovery, colonization, and exploration of America beginning with Columbus’s voyage and ending in the late nineteenth century with westward expansion and Edward S. Curtis’s visual exploration of the American west. I anticipate that this paper will serve as a bibliographic guide to travel accounts and primary sources relating to the European exploration and discovery, both scientific and cultural, of America from its origins in the 1490s through to the late nineteenth-century.
