Sol’s y Rivadeneyra (1610-1686), a native of Alcal‡ de Henares, is best known for his Historia de la conquista de MŽxico, Madrid, 1684 ("a noble work of literary historiography É a model of Castilian prose, and the story is constantly gripping," Ward pp. 550-1). He also composed poetry influenced by G—ngora and was "a lively, witty dramatist equipped with a vein of self-mockery" (Ward p. 551), sometimes collaborating with friends such as Coello, Calder—n, Francisco de Monteser and Diego de Silva. *** Palau 318550.
