Excerpt from The Discoveries of Prince Henry: The Navigator, and Their Results; Being the Narrative of the Discovery by Sea, Within One Century, of More Than Half the World
The glory of Prince Henry consists in the conception and persistent prosecution of a great idea, and in what followed therefrom. This book, then, is rather a record of the glory than of the mere life of Prince Henry. That glory is not a matter of fancy or bombast, but of mighty and momentous reality, a reality to which the Anglo Saxon race, at least, have no excuse for indifference.
