Descripción

We Were There with Cortes and Montezuma by Benjamin Appel was published by Grosset & Dunlap in 1959. Not an ex-library copy, this 179-page, 52-year-old, thought-to-be First Edition offering is in VG/G condition. The book is in sound, firm physical shape, at age 52, but there is some modest yellowing of the text's pages. The dust jacket has seen a bit more wear for having done its job so well, but is still, overall, looking pretty decent. There is fairly noticeable shelf wear at top and bottom edges of jacket spine, and it was necessary to clear tape at 5-6 random spots to repair/prevent from worsening small tears, mostly at various edges. From front inside jacket flap, "Battle cries split the air as Indians and Spaniards pitted arrow against sword on the narrow Yucatan beach. The year was 1518, and Hernando Cortes, Captain General to the King of Spain, had begun his conquest of Mexico. .Cortes' army conquered one Indian nation after another. This Spanish god, as they thought him, struck fear in the hearts of the Indian chiefs. Yet the Spaniards shuddered equally before the Indians' savage cries of 'We will sacrifice your hearts to our gods!' Before it was finished, [the Spanish invaders] would look upon the great god Huitzilopochtli and enter the white-walled city of the Aztecs." Every "We-Were-There" book in the publishers' very popular(at that time) series ".tells the exciting story of two young persons' adventures during some of history's most dramatic events--written by top authors, illustrated by top artists, [and] checked for historical accuracy by experts."(from back inside jacket flap). So, painstakingly researched and thus factually accurate, this is historical fiction geared to young readers all the way into the teen years, and beautifully Illustrated by Reynold C. Pollak, to boot. Also includes Contents Page and List of (the 5 full page) Illustrations; there are, by the way, over two dozen more Drawings, of various sizes, by Pollak. I'm thinking the story holds up very well even now, considering this offering's fast-moving, sometimes brutal subject matter. Thanks very much!!. N° de ref. de la librería 005107
