The age of Reconnaissance discovery, exploration and settlement 1450-1650
The Age of Reconnaissance, as J. H. Parry has so aptly named it, was the period during which Europe discovered the rest of the world. It began with Henry the Navigator and the Portuguese voyages in the mid-fifteenth century and ended 250 years later when the “Reconnaissance” was all but complete.
‘Dr Parry examines not only the attitudes and motives of those who venture into the unknown, but also the financial background, the organisation and technical developments in Western Europe as a whole which were essential to successful exploration and settlement… An admirable survey of this dynamic period in European history as well as a solid contribution to our knowledge of the circumstances which made it possible’ Times Literary Supplement
