About this Item

Large Octavo. 624p. Second Edition in Italian. [8] preliminary leaves, engraved portrait frontispiece of the author and 7 other plates. The author was a noted Spanish historian. He remained the most important European source on Latin American History until the early Nineteenth Century. His negative view of Diaz Castillo was based on its poor Spanish style (as well as the criticism of Cortez whom Solis admires). He describes the three years between the appointment of Cortes and the fall of Mexico City. Sabin 86486. From the esteemed libraries of Marcus Crahan and Robert Washington Oates with their bookplates. Beautifully printed in manuscript, an assessment of this work by a previous owner in Italian to first blank. Bound in contemporary decorative vellum, paper spine label and shelf label in brown ink, pieces torn away from lower corners of the indice not affecting text, upper cover with piece torn from binding. A very good copy of this important work. Bookseller Inventory # 018717
