        The New Laws of the Indies for the Treatment and Preservation of the Indians Promulgated by the Emperor Charles the Fifth 1542-1543. A facsimile reprint of the original Spanish edition together with a literal translation into the English language. To which is prefixed an Historical Introduction by Henry Stevens of Vermont and Fred W. Lucas

      London: Chiswick Press 1893 London: Chiswick Press, 1893. No. 11 of 13 copies printed on vellum (there were also 88 copies printed on paper). Folio (12-3/4 x 8-7/8 in.; 32.4 x 22.5 cm). Title with vignette, numerous woodcut illustrations, and large initial capitals. Loose, as issued, in publisher's decorated board portfolio with maroon velvet straps, in publisher's maroon morocco-backed clamshell box with printed label on upper cover; box worn, a few rust marks on upper board . This work consists of two important ordinances issued by the Spanish monarchy on November 20, 1542, and June 4, 1543. Under the active influence of Bartolomeo de las Casas ("friend of the Indians") the new laws had the special design of ensuring better treatment of the Indians, limiting the distribution of their lands, and, above all, protecting them against enslavement by the conquering Spaniards."Las Leyes Nuevas" are reprinted here in this fine facsimile from the copy on vellum in the British Museum, and are followed by an English translation. Much of the book is taken up by the historical Introduction by Henry Stevens, who denounces the Spanish mistreatment of the Indians. Ironically, the Spanish crown was later forced to rescind the new laws by colonists who were outraged at having to give up their right to a quota of enslaved Indian laborers. A magnificent and impressive production by the Chiswick Press, one of only 13 printed on vellum
