Official Guide Historical Educational Cruise of the Santa Maria, Spain's Official Replica of the Flagship of Admiral Columbus En Route from Chicago to the Panama-Pacific Exposition free pdf Excerpt from Official Guide Historical Educational Cruise of the Santa Maria, Spain's Official Replica of the Flagship of Admiral Columbus En Route From Chicago to the Panama-Pacific Exposition: Sailing in New Water- Including: Description of Relics Shown on Board the Santa Maria- History of the Re-Building of the Santa Maria, Pinta and Nina- The Coming of the Replicas of the Columbus Fleet to America- Detail of the Present Educational Cruise- Ch The Nina has a keel 6x13 inches- is double ribbed with 5x5 inch ribs placed every 7 inches. Under full sail the Nina carries a total of 2,300 square feet of canvas on a fore staysail, fore lateensail, main lateensail, mizzen lateensail. Her fore lateenyard is 60 feet- main lateenyard, 47 feet- mizzen lateenyard, 41 feet. Her hull is clipper built, with rigging about the same as a Chinese Junk. She is a close sailing boat, will lay 5 points to windward. The Santa Maria and Pinta are good sailors before the wind, but the Nina, because she can be close hauled, is a much swifter boat for general sailing. The Nina is armed with two Falconet cannon. It was the Nina, the smallest boat of the fleet, that on her third trip to the new world, returned to Spain with Columbus on board a prisoner in chains. No.4. The Cabin Of Columbus. The Cabin occupied by Columbus on the Santa Maria is situated under the poop deck, and extends across the ship. It is the same in size and arrangement as the one on the original boat. In this cabin we have endeavored to present a very realistic scene en route on the voyage of 1492. The great Admiral is seated on a chair at the side of a table. He is in the midst of an animated discussion with one of his officials, who stands at the opposite side of the table. Let us presume that this official is the worthy Historiographer. On the table are strewn maps and instruments such as were used daily by Columbus in his calculations. The Admiral is pointing to a particular portion of one of the maps, and judging from the pleased expression on his face has made clear to the Historiographer the points of his argument. The costumes of both figures are true to the period. The head of Columbus as used in this scene is the same model as used by the Government on the Columbian half dollars and is taken from the Lotto portrait. The Table shown is a duplicate of the one from the Genoa home of Columbus. The Chairs are of the Columbus period. The Spanish Sea Chest in the corner of the cabin was used in the days of Columbus. In the back part of the cabin is a Bed of the Columbus period, and such a one as the Admiral used. The Crucifix on the wall was made in the early part of the Fifteenth Century. The Flag of Castile and Leon, and the Royal Pennant, which were taken ashore by Columbus when he first landed in the New World, have a place in the Cabin. They have been reproduced from hand-colored photo plates furnished by The Hispanic Society of America, New York, thru the favor of Dr. W. R. Martin, Librarian. They are correct in every detail. Maps Of The Columbus Period. The map feature of the Columbus Cabin exhibit is of peculiarly intense interest, and of high educational value. By permission of The Hispanic Society of America, New York, thru the courtesy of Dr. E. L. Stevenson, Secretary, we show photographic hand-painted reproductions of three important maps and charts of the Fifteenth Century, similar in kind with which Columbus was acquainted. For protection these maps have been framed and faced with glass. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.com
