Suarez de Peralta belonged to the family of Cortes' first wife, and was said to be of moorish descent. He was born in Mexico and with his brother engaged in wheat mills and real estate. He is known to have gone to Spain in 1579 and to have died there, sometime after 1590. His book is notable, both for his own first hand knowledge of the events he describes, but also his use of other original sources. This is the first edition. He wrote as well a treatise on horsemanship.
