As the intro points out, qntonio of the book’s lustre has worn off, since travel is so easy and not even recently, since people made the voyage faster and easier for centuries now. And there was infighting and intrigue along the way, The most fascinating thing about this is that it’s a first-hand account of the first voyage around the world, and by a gentleman adventurer, no less.
And there was infighting and intrigue along the way, all of which is glossed over by Pigafetta in favor of a travel guide. That didn’t bother me – he wrote it with a certain mindset, and squabbling wasn’t part of it. Once I could see what the book was, it was a good, if not rip-roaring, travel epic.
The intro and notes were alternately condescending toward Pigafetta, explanatory, or laudatory.
Primer Viaje Alrededor del Mundo
The negative aspects tended to come through more, especially in the notes. I’d flip to the back to see what Pigafetta was talking about, often to be told that this was a common European trope; instead of explaining the significance, it just listed other people who claimed the same thing.
Eventually I gave up on checking every note, and only did when I really wanted to know something. A good, readable translation, and Pigafetta has some interesting adventures in South America and after crossing the Gloob.
For anyone interested in the subject, who appreciates primary sources, it’s worth picking up. This account of Antionio Pigafetta is the main first-hand account that we have today of that historic voyage.
Primer viaje en torno del globo
The pages are filled with Pigafetta’s anthropological and botanical observations of the places that were visited. Some of the observations are interesting, others less de, and some such as the remark about an island called Arucheto, the men and women of which are not taller than glkbo cubit, but who have ears as long as themselves; with one of them they make their bed and with the other they cover themselves are quite fantastic.
Did Jules Verne read Pigafetta? At any rate, this is where the Europeans discovered that if one travels westwards around the globe, against the pigafdtta of the earth around its axis, one day goes missing – a puzzling fact that had to be explained to the Pope on their return: We charged our men when they went ashore in the boat to ask what day it was, and they told us that it was Thursday with the Portuguese.
We were alrededkr surprised for it was Wednesday with us, and we could not see how we had made a mistake; for as I had always kept well, I had set down every day without any interruption. However, as was told us later, it was no error, but as the voyage had been made continually toward the west and we had returned to the same place as does the sun, we had made that gain of twenty-four hours, as is clearly seen. The version I read has the Italian text juxtaposed with the English translation and contains some charming illustrations and maps by Pigafetta.
The critical apparatus to this volume is excellent. Pigafetta’s own text, while well-annotated by the editor, is atrocious–as atrocious as Magellan and his crew in their treatment of the peoples encountered in the circumnavigation. The fame of the account is because of it uniqueness, The critical apparatus to alreredor volume is excellent.
The fame of the account is because of it uniqueness, not because of any literary quality. Indeed, it was written for money, for position and so contains a disproportionate amount of attention to the concerns of the aristocrats he sought favor from: Furthermore, since the Indies, already in contact with Portugal and substantially Moslem, were known to have valuable commodities and since Magellan represented Spain, most attention is paid to the relatively known East, not to newly discovered areas and peoples.
Finally, and as noted by the editor, virtually no attention is paid to shipboard politics, even attempted mutinies, and the death of Magellan and members of his crew in battle is described laconically. Most extraordinary is the callous inhumanity of the author and, apparently, of his fellows. Murder, theft, lying and kidnapping are taken as a matter of course throughout. Instead of any moral sense there is only rank Catholic superstition. This is an incredible first hand account of Magellan’s voyage.
However, it is frustrating how Pigafetta glosses over so many of the hardships and that he barely acknowledges Sebastian D’Elcano, the mutineer turned navigator who gets them home to Spain. Also, I find the editorial notes patronising to Pigafetta and they are often more intrusive than helpful.
Still, it’s amazing that this book survived so that we can read it.

Scholar and explorer from the Republic of Venice.

Pigafetta’s journal is the source for much of what we know about Magellan and Elcano’s voyage. At least one warship of the Italian Navy, a destroyer of the Navigatori class, was named after him in Books by Antonio Pigafetta. No trivia or quizzes yet.
