THIS IS A DOWNLOADABLE E-BOOK. Many years after Columbus's death, his son Fernando wrote that his father had studied geography (which was then called cosmogony) at the University of Pavia. Columbus himself never referred to Pavia nor to any other school; nor was it likely that poor parents could afford to send the eldest of five children to spend a year at a far-off university. Certain it is that he never went there after his seafaring life began, for from then on his doings are quite clearly known; so we must admit that while he may have had some teaching in childhood, what little knowledge he possessed of geography and science were self-taught in later years.Stapley, Mildred is the author of 'Christopher Columbus', published 2004 under ISBN 9781419213106 and ISBN 1419213105.
