Description Antiquities of America de Asahel Davis:

Excerpt from Antiquities of America: The First Inhabitants of Central America, and the Discovery of New England by the Northmen, Five Hundred Years Before Columbus While the beauties of the visible creation fade on the eye, while nature reposes under the mantle of night, it is pleasant to leave the haunts of business, or the domestic scenes, and come up to the lecture room to survey the dark regions of the past, under the mild light of history. If the age of Leo X. was characterized by great attention to the fine arts, so the present is remarkable, not only for its devotion to the embellishments of life, but for progress in historical and antiquarian researches. The most gifted minds of either sex are interested in these studies. The crowned heads of Europe, instead of imbruing their hands in the blood of their fellows, are spending mints of money in unfolding the early history of the world. That spirit of enquiry which awoke, perhaps, in the East, folds not its wings in apathy in crossing the Atlantic- for here its developments astonish both hemispheres. Knowledge is spreading over the earth not like the morning beams, which gild only the mountain tops, but like the noon-tide rays, that penetrate the deep valleys! The active mind of man instinctively surveys the dark regions of the past, and would gladly break the unfathomable silence of the nations of the dead, and raise the veil where their beauty and glory have slept for ages. This strong desire to learn something of those who lived when time was young, leads the antiquary, too often, to adopt groundless theories. But if there are counterfeit antiquities, there are those also that are genuine. It will be recollected that the avaricious Spaniards discovered and conquered Mexico on the North, and Peru and Chili on the South of Central America, in the first place. But at length the solitude of the latter was broken- and there was discovered the "El Dorado" about which the whole Spanish nation had so long been dreaming.
