The Fourth Part of The World: The Race to The Ends of The Earth by Toby Lester
English | MP3 | 527 MB

Brimming with enthralling details and personalities, Toby Lester’s The Fourth Part of the World spotlights Martin
Waldseemüller’s 1507 world map and recounts the epic tale of the mariners and scholars who facilitated this
watershed of Western history. Five hundred years ago, an obscure German scholar took a quantum leap in thought
to design a groundbreaking map. It included such innovations as labeling a separate New World continent America
and approximating the world as we know it today. Inherent in this magnificent masterpiece are clear echoes from
the adventures of Marco Polo, the discoveries of Christopher Columbus, the explorations of Amerigo Vespucci,
numerous Renaissance journeys, and much more. Fully realized by Peter Jay Fernandez’s superb narration, this vivid
account will help listeners appreciate why – in 2003 – the Library of Congress paid 10 million dollars for
this 6-foot by 9.5-foot antiquity and the authenticating documents found with it in 1901.
