Bernal Diaz del Castillo (c. 1496 ‒ 1584) wrote an important first-hand account of his experiences supporting several expeditions into Central America, including that of Hernan Cortes in the... More > conquest of Mexico, 1521. It's a straightforward account of a soldier, not the dainty and carefully balanced prose of an academic. This edition is one not readily accessible to readers interested in Diaz’ famous history. It is the very first English translation which exists only in old facsimile books or as images on archive.org, the Keatinge translation as published in London, 1800. Being so old, it is the one least likely to have been influenced by the modern bias of “political correctness.” The only footnotes shown are Diaz’ own. This volume allows Diaz to tell his story as he would have it. The old printing typography (‘s’ like ‘f’, etc.) has been updated for the convenience of modern readers, resulting in a highly readable text. COMPLETE AND UNABRIDGED.< Less

There was relatively little scholarship on Aztec civilization, and Prescott dismissed much of it as "speculation", and he therefore had to rely almost exclusively on primary sources. He considered Edward King's theory that the pre-Columbian civilizations were non-indigenous to be fallacious, although he was greatly indebted to him for his anthology of Aztec codices in the Antiquities of Mexico.< Less
