Summary
"During the early modern period, western Europe was transformed by the proliferation of new worlds - geographic worlds found in the voyages of discovery as well as conceptual and celestial worlds opened by natural philosophy, or science."--BOOK JACKET. "Campbell's new book analyzes a cross section of texts in which worlds were made and unmade; these texts include cosmographics, colonial reports, works of natural philosophy and natural history, fantastic voyages, exotic fictions, and confessions."--BOOK JACKET. "With more than thirty well-chosen illustrations, Wonder and Science enhances our understanding of the culture of early modern Europe, the history of science, and the development of literary forms, including the novel and ethnography."--Jacket
