About this Item

2 volumes. First English edition. 8vo, antique three-quarter red calf over marbled boards. The spines with gilt stippled raised bands creating compartments framed in both gilt and blind, with two blue morocco labels ruled and lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. xv, 407; viii, 421 pp. A very nice set, internally fine and fresh and very clean, the bindings sturdy and attractive with only a bit of expected age evidence. FIRST EDITION, THE ENGLISH ISSUE, which appeared only a few weeks after the American. In spite of the near simultaneous release, the text of this English edition does differ a bit from its American counterpart. Despite Irving's use of an imaginary chronicler, Agapida, who’s dialog livens up the flavor of the text, the CONQUEST OF GRANADA was the product of careful historical research in Madrid. Irving was serving as a titular diplomat, a post which gave him access to considerable resources as well as access to the most important inner social circles. It remains an excellent history on the expulsion of the Moors from Spain. This work, along with his THE ALHAMBRA highlights both Irving’s scholarly abilities and his eloquent writing style.
