The mismapping of America by Seymour I Schwartz( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Mismapping of America presents and analyzes the significant cartographic errors that have shaped the history of the United States. Perhaps the most blatant error is the very name "America" that honors Amerigo Vespucci, who not only never set foot on North American soil, but also played no significant role in the discovery of South America. The appearance of the name "America" imprinted on a map ensured its permanence." "Other significant errors explored in The Mismapping of America include: Giovanni da Verrazzano's misinterpretation of Pamlico or Albermarle Sound for the Pacific Ocean, thereby suggesting the presence of an isthmus in the middle of the North American continent, the existence of a direct Northwest passage between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the misconception that California was an island, and the insertion on Lake Superior of a fictitious island that is specifically referred to in defining the boundary of the United States." "The inclusion of pertinent rare maps enhances this rich and revealing narrative of several intriguing episodes in the history of the geographic evolution of the United States."--Jacket

Cadwallader Colden : a biography by Seymour I Schwartz( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first complete biography of Cadwallader Colden (1688-1776), the longest-serving Lieutenant Governor of New York and a brilliant intellectual, multifaceted colonial Renaissance man, and consummate royalist ... [and] one of the most accomplished intellectual and political figures in the American colonies before the Revolution. As the longest-serving Lieutenant Governor of New York he was intimately involved in the tumultuous political life of the times. His History of the Five Indian Nations (1727) was the first English history of the Iroquois and a popular book both in the colonies and in Europe. Colden was also a trained physician. Though he never practiced, he significantly improved the public health of the colony. Furthermore, he was an internationally recognized botanist, the author of the first scientific paper published in the colonies, and an accomplished cartographer who published the first map in the colony of New York. A prolific letter writer, Colden corresponded with many of the major intellectuals of his day, including Benjamin Franklin and Samuel Johnson. In addition, he wrote extensively on a wide range of topics, including philosophy, history, the natural sciences, and mathematics. Why has this distinguished individual fallen into obscurity? As an ardent royalist he was the most vilified of the colonial leaders and was even burned in effigy. This well-researched and long-overdue biography tells the fascinating story of this multifaceted colonial Renaissance man"--
The anatomist, the barber-surgeon, and the king : how the accidental death of Henry II of France changed the world by Seymour I Schwartz( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique study examines a critical juncture in the history of the Renaissance brought about by a freak accident. Combining both a history of sixteenth-century medicine and European politics, the author describes the far-reaching effects of the death of King Henry II of France (1519-1559). Grievously wounded by an accidental blow to the head suffered during a mock jousting competition, the king lingered for weeks before expiring. Even the ministrations of Europe s two most renowned physicians Andreas Vesalius and Ambroise Paré could not prevent his demise. As the author shows, the death of Henry II created a power vacuum, and the subsequent chain of events had significant effects on the balance of power in Europe. A noted surgeon, the author also provides many insights into the state of medicine in this era a time when the practice of surgery and knowledge of human anatomy were being transformed. Readers learn how Vesalius s ingenious studies of anatomy advanced the understanding of human body functions. And Paré s experience with battlefield wounds led to more humane and effective treatments of the injured. This colorful, lively narrative combines engrossing details about politics, history, and medicine during an important period at the end of the Renaissance
