    Re: Medina's Arte of Navigation

    I have been looking for a while and have not found a satisfactory English translation of Arte. But there is a fine translation of Medina's earlier Libro de Cosmographia of 1538 by Ursula Lamb (1972, Newberry Library/ Univ of Chicago Press) -- usu available on abebooks for $25 or so.

    And by the way, there are three nice Italian editions of the Arte on Abebooks rom a UK dealer. Prices are a mere $29,000 and up! 8-)

    Do let me know if you find that there is in fact a satisfactory English translation of Arte! I've read the Spanish, and have a copy of the Italian edition (not an original!), but after reading Lamb's fine translation of the Cosmographia, I would love to see a translation done by an expert.
