The True History of the Conquest of New Spain, written by Bernal Diaz del Castillo, one of the Conquerors, was known and appreciated by historians and bibliographers before it was published. Antonio de Herrera quotes it frequently, Friar Juan de Torquemada also refers to it on several occasions, and Licentiate Antonio de Leon Pinelo devotes some line to it in his brief bibliography. Although the original manuscript has always been kept in Guatemala, first by the Author, and afterwards by his descendants, and still later by the Municipality of the Capital, in whose archives it is preserved today, a copy of it was made in the sixteenth century and sent to Spain to King Philip II and was there consulted by the Royal chroniclers. After its publication in Madrid by Friar Alonzo Remon of the Order of Mercy in the year 1632 the True History was universally accepted from that time onwards as the most complete and trustworthy of the chronicles of the Conquest of New Spain. A second edition followed almost immediately in the same city, some four years later a third, a fourth, and a fifth. It was translated in to English by Maurice Keatinge in 1800 and John Ingram Lockhard in 1844; into German by J von Rehfues in 1838 and Karl Ritter in 1848; into French by D Jourdanet in 1876 and Jose Maria de Heredia in 1877, and into Hungarian by Karoly Brozik in 1878 and Moses Gaal in 1899. Several of these translations obtained the honors of a second edition, as that of Keatinge in 1803, that of Rehfues in 1843 and that of Jourdanet in 1877. Condition: Corners bumped and rubbed, book plate on front paste downs, spine ends moderately rubbed with some mild chips, front and back page ends foxed, spine sunned, some inner hinges cracked, half titles age darkened, some foxing. Over all a good to very good set. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1915 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.
