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

More > Montezuma Edition. Prescott expressed interest in his correspondence in writing a biography of Molière, and Ticknor records that he sent Prescott "a collection of about 50 volumes" of relevant material. However, after writing to Ángel Calderón de la Barca, a Spanish minister living in Mexico, who was able to provide source material, Prescott started research on what was to become the History of the Conquest of Mexico. 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
