(European Americana 743/197; Medina, BHA 3339; Palau 286883) First editions.

Antonio de Solis y Ribadeneyra (1610 - April 19, 1686), Spanish dramatist and historian, was born at Alcala de Henares (less probably, Plasencia). He studied law at Salamanca, where he produced a comedy entitled Amor y obligacion, which was acted in 1627. He became secretary to the count of Oropesa, and in 1654 he was appointed secretary of state as well as private secretary to Philip IV. Later he obtained the lucrative post of chronicler of the Indies, and, on taking orders in 1671 severed his connection with the stage. He died at Madrid on the 19th of April 1686. Of his ten extant plays, two have some place in the history of the drama. El Antor al use was adapted by Scarron and again by Thomas Corneille as L'Amour de la mode, while La Gitanilla de Madrid, itself founded on the novela of Cervantes, has been utilized directly or indirectly by P A Wolff, Victor Hugo and Longfellow. The titles of the remaining seven are Triunfos de amor y fortuna, Euredice y Orfeo, El Alcetzar del secrete, Las Amazonas, El doctor Carlino, Un bobo hace ciento, and Amparar el enemigo. Amor y obligacion survives in a manuscript at the Biblioteca Nacional. The Historia de la conquista de Mexico, poblacion y progresos de la America septentrional, conocida por el nombre de Nueva Espama, covering the three years between the appointment of Cortes to command the invading force and the fall of the city, deservedly ranks as a Spanish prose classic. It was published in 1684; an English translation by Townshend appeared in 1724.

Ignacio de Salazar y Olarte's separately published continuation of Solis's work, which can stand alone as a distinct work.

George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.
