Concerning the birthplace, family, and name of the Admiral Christopher Columbus -- Of the Admiral's parents and their condition, and of the false account that one Giustiniani gives of his occupation before he acquired the title of Admiral -- Of the bodily disposition of the Admiral and of the sciences that he learned -- Of the activities of the Admiral before he came to Spain -- Of the Admiral's coming to Spain and of what happened to him in Portugal, which was the cause of his discovery of the Indies -- Of the Admiral's principal reason for believing that he could discover the Indies -- The second reason that encouraged the Admiral to seek to discover the Indies -- The letters of Paolo, a physician of Florence, to the Admiral concerning the discovery of the Indies -- The third reason and sign that gave the Admiral some encouragement to discover the Indies -- In which is shown the falsity of the claim that the Spaniards once before had possession of the Indies, as Gonzalo de Oviedo attempts to prove in his history -- How the Admiral grew angry with the King of Portugal, to whom he had offered to discover the Indies -- Of the Admiral's departure from Portugal, and of his conversations with the Catholic sovereigns Ferdninand and Isabella -- How the Admiral, failing to reach an agreement with the Catholic sovereigns, decided to offer his enterprise to France -- How the Admiral returned to the camp of Santa Fé and took leave of the Catholic sovereigns, having failed to reach an agreement with them -- How the Catholic sovereigns ordered the Admiral to return and granted all he asked -- How the Admiral outfitted three caravels for his voyage of discovery -- How the Admiral reached the Canaries and there took aboard all he needed -- How the Admiral sailed from the Grand Canary and continued his voyage of discovery, and what happened to him on the ocean -- How all the ship's people, being eager to reach land, were very attentive to the things they saw in the sea -- How the men grumbled because of their desire to return, and how certain signs and tokens of land made them continue gladly on their course -- How they continued to see the above-mentioned signs and tokens and others that were even more hopeful, which gave them some comfort -- How the Admiral sighted the first land, this being an island in the Archipelago called the Bahamas --
