History Of The Conquest Of Mexico: With A Preliminary View Of The Ancient Mexican Civilization And The Life Of The Conqueror Hernando Cortes In Three Volumes

by William H. Prescott

Condition: Good-/None


The three books in this set are all in good condition. There is wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the cover boards of all three books. The corners are bumped on the cover boards on all three books. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board on all three books. The pages are tanned and yellowed in all three books, but they are all clear of any markings.

"As the Conquest of Mexico has occupied the pens of Solis and of Robertson, two of the ablest historians of their respective nations, it might seem that little could remain at the present day to be gleaned by the historical inquirer. But Robertson's narrative is necessarily brief, forming only part of a more extended work; and neither the British, nor the Castilian author, was provided with the important materials for relating this event, which have been since assembled by the industry of Spanish scholars...." - Preface from Volume I of History Of The Conquest Of Mexico: With A Preliminary View Of The Ancient Mexican Civilization And The Life Of The Conqueror Hernando Cortes In Three Volumes
