Description: 2 ports., 2 folding maps. 468pp. 8vo, later 1/4 morocco; (worn, few margin wormholes, very lightly foxed, rubberstamp partially eradicated from t.p.). Paris, 1838.

Comments: Author was the official chronologer of the Spanish Indies and was an official in the office of the Secretary of State. George Ticknor vauled this work as full of great deeds, dangerous adventures and horrendous 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 Spanish prose classic." Hill p. 278.
