HISTOIRE DE LA CONQUETE DU MEXIQUE, TRADUITE DE L'ESPAGNOL D'ANTONIO DE SOLIS [manuscript caption title]
[N.p., but France, 1795. [433]pp. Folio. Late 19th-century black half morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Corners rubbed. Front inner hinge cracked. Minor soiling, some contemporary ink staining. Very good. Manuscript translation, in French, of this classic history of the conquest of Mexico, first published in Madrid in 1684. Though undated, it is written on paper watermarked 1793 in a neat and uniform hand. A French translation had appeared as early as 1691, but this appears to be a different translation. The HISTORIA DE LA CONQUISTA DE MEXICO was reprinted in multiple editions in every European language and was popular on both sides of the Atlantic. The author was a noted Spanish dramatist and historian. His work includes theatre, poetry, and prose, and he has been considered one of the last great writers of Spanish baroque literature. This work remained the most important European source on Latin American history up through the first part of the 19th century.
