Comments: Author was the official chronologer of the Spanish Indies and was an official in the office of the Secretary of State. George Ticknor valued this work as full of great deeds, dangerous adventures and horrrendous crimes. The description of events can scarcely be found elsewhere. "The Historia, covering the years between the appointment of Cortes to command the invading force and the fall of the city of Mexico, deservedly ranks as a Spanish prose classic." Hill p. 278.

I want to thank you for your excellent service. I telephoned to inquire about the availability of a book this past Wednesday morning. Michele informed me it was available and took my order at about 11 AM EST. The next day when I got home from work, I was astounded to find that the book had been delivered in the early afternoon -- less than 30 hours after the order. Now, I know that UPS deserves some credit, but such fast delivery would not have occurred if Michele (and perhaps others) had not worked extremely efficiently. The book was well packed and fully meets my expectations, and Michele even got my name right! You have demonstrated a level of service I hope all merchants would meet. Thanks again. - Guy Hasegawa
