About this Item

Thick Small Quarto. Liimited to 300 copies. xxxvi, 564p.index. Illustrations, including coat of arms; portraits; folded plan (Tenochtitlan). As Garrett Mattingly notes the book is: "a major contribution to our knowledge of the conquest of Mexico." He also notes that H.R. Wagner in his introduction has produced an "exciting and satisfying chapter. from now on every writer about the conquest will be wise to follow the trail Wagner has blazed. Of course, Prescott did not have access to many of the documents that the author has studied so the errors of the older classic are somewhat understandable. Bound in gray cloth, spine lettering in pale black, corners bumped. A very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 018781
