About this Item

New York, 1856-1858. 8vo, half morocco over marbled paper, 490 + 470 + 532 + 456 pp. First American edition, published a year after the first British edition. An attractive copy, finely bound, in near fine condition with some slight rubbing to spines. Spines in six compartments, gilt floral inlays at spine. Folding map in fourth volume in fine condition. " Helps's strong aversion to slavery led to his research on the Spanish conquest of America. First came The Conquerors of the New World and their Bondsmen (2 vols., 1848?52) and then The Spanish Conquest in America and its Relation to the History of Slavery (4 vols., 1855?61), which were the product of seven years' research, including visits to Madrid to consult original manuscripts. These works formed the basis of a number of biographies, which were more popular in their day than the complete histories. " -DNB. Field 682 for English edition. Bookseller Inventory # SET3002
