La Terza Parte Delle Historie Dell'Indie Nellaqvale Particolarmente si tratta dello scoprimento della Prouincia di Incatan detta Nuoua Spagna: Nuovamente Tradotta di Lingua Spagnuola, da Lucio Mauro.

by López de Gómara, Francisco, 1510-1560? Mauro, Lucio, translator

Condition: Good


In Venetia, Appresso Giordame Ziletti, al segno della Stella, M.D. LXVI [1566]. Title continues ...& delle cose degne di memoria, fatte da Spagnuoli nella conquista della grande, & marauigliosa Citta di Messico, & delle altre Prouincie ad essa sottoposte. This work continues uniformly the author's Seconda Parte of 1565, itself a continuation of the Prima Parte of 1560 which is another text, by Pedro de Cieza de Leon. López de Gómara is the first record of Cortéz's expeditions to the Pacific coast, the Ulloa voyages along the coast of upper California, the preliminary journey to Cibola of Fray Marcos de Niza, and the expedition to the fabled Seven Cities by Francisco Vázquez de Coronado. The second book, and a basic source, for the Southwest of the United States -- Texas, New Mexico, Arizona. This is the first Italian edition of this portion of Gómara's text (the first, i.e. Parte Secondo, first appeared in 1554). Gómara served as Cortés's secretary from 1540, when the conquistador returned to Spain. 'Gómara's history is a good history; he derived his information from the highest sources, and he wrote with an elegant brevity and a sense of arrangement that contrasted favorably with the rambling incoherencies of many of his contemporaries. Small wonder it was a favorite book of the time' (Boies Penrose). Despite the defects noted, this is an attractive copy of an important work, one of 'the two pillars on which the story of the Conquest mainly rests' (Prescott).
