Folio. [3]f including half-title, title & dedication leaf + 10 [numbered vii-xvi] + 877 + [1 blank]p + [1] + 67 leaves with facsimiles of 29 letters + [1]f + 22 numbered plates + [1] plate + [1 + 1 blank + 2]f + 4 maps (3 folding in colour) + [10]p. Contemporary calf, gilt, top edges gilt; worn; preserved in slipcase. First publication of this selection of outstanding historical autograph letters relating to Spanish America held in the Spanish national archives. The contents are transliterated, followed by excellent facsimile reproductions of the originals, many showing the writer’s seal. The selection begins with letters by Christopher Columbus, Amerigo Vespucci, Bartolomé de las Casas (Apostle of the Indies), and Bernal Díaz del Castillo (Cortés’ chronicler). The remainder are by viceroys, Mexican Indian chiefs, and clerics and lawyers serving in the Americas (one in the Philippines), writing to Spanish royalty or high government officials. 22 numbered plates reproduce autograph signatures and seals in the same context; an unnumbered plate contains an illustration from a manuscript showing a Peruvian town and system of mineshafts for storing Inca treasure. The volume comprises sections with geographical notes (pp669-699), of biographical detail (pp701-871), and a linguistic glossary (pp873-877). The maps at the end represent Australia, the Amazon River and its tributaries, the Antilles and Gulf of Mexico, and the Straits of Magellan. Occasional isolated toning, folds of maps neatly repaired in places without loss, otherwise in good condition. Leclerc 2688; Palau 46394 (‘sumptuous publication’; with faulty collation of plates).

Descripción de la librería

Our business is by correspondence. We exhibit at International Fairs. Apart from our specialist fields, we offer subject collections. Recent collections sold have been on Cervantes, Jorge Luis Borges, Horsemanship and early Anatomy. We have a small stock of prints, watercolours and photographs. Catalogues on various topics are issued about twice a year. In September 2002 we published 'COFFEE: A Bibliography. A Guide to the Literature on Coffee'. It is the first modern comprehensive bibliography on the subject and has been compiled over a number of years by ourselves with help from leading experts in their fields.
