Lo Scambio Colombiano Conseguenze Biologiche E Culturali Del 1492, Crosby, Alfred W.
4 Crosby, Alfred W. Lo Scambio Colombiano Conseguenze Biologiche E Culturali Del 1492
Torino Einaudi Paperbacks 1992 8806122436 / 9788806122430 First Edition Thus; 1st Printing Paperback New; Italian translation of Crosby's "The Columbia Exchange". Trade paperback still in original publisher's shrink wrap. 
In una delle sue pagine piu belle, Gabriel Garcia Marquez racconta del proliferare smisurato di animali grandi e piccoli nel territorio immaginario de Macondo. L'autore ha detto poi che il fatto in se non era un'invenzione fantastica, ma un fenomeno registrato dalle antiche cronache. Come tale, infatti, viene riportato anche nella grande sintesi bio-storica di Alfred W. Crosby, che, al pari dell'aneddoto romanzesco, indica come l'incontro fra Vecchio e Nuovo Monde sia stato evento ben piu complesso di come per solito viene studiato e descritto. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 224 pages
