The 30 Sonatas of Sebastián de Albero (1722–1756), who worked for the Spanish court in Madrid along with Italian-born Domenico Scarlatti and fellow-Spaniard Antonio Soler, is a... More > remarkable contribution to the vital Iberian keyboard literature of the 18th century.

The Life of the Venerable Anne of Jesus By A Sister of Notre Dame de Namur
Hardcover: $40.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
From the Preface "The name of Venerable Anne of Jesus is probably familiar to all those who are well acquainted with the life, the work of foundation and the correspondence of St. Teresa of... More > Avila; it also occupies a not unimportant place in the life-story of St. John of the Cross. It is, therefore, not too much to say that none of these subjects can be properly and fully understood unless one has a more than cursory knowledge of her own life and aims. Above all this she was endowed with talents not even second to those of St. Teresa, and she reached a wonderful degree of sanctity." This is a story that cannot be found in print elsewhere, of the transplanting of the Teresian reform from Spain to France and the Netherlands, a remarkable fete given that all of those countries were at war and the populations of France and the Netherlands not especially amenable to Spaniards. Nevertheless, the roots of Carmel were well placed, and the order flourished in convents still there to this day.< Less

Cabeza de Vaca gives us perhaps the most intriguing account of the inhabitants of the North American continent during the earliest contact with the Spanish. His report covers nine years, from 1527 -... More > 1536, and his route over the bays, rivers, marshes, prairies, woodlands and along major Indian trails may have spanned 6,000 miles or more. Through his account we learn that there were important cultural centers within our modern boundaries. Though Cabeza de Vaca himself did not visit them, he would later misrepresent the pueblos in the interior as places of great wealth. Within a few years of Cabeza de Vaca's arrival in Mexico City, Spaniards such as Francisco Vásquez de Coronado and Hernando de Soto would terrorize the interior lands. The conquest would be in full motion by 1540 and many indigenous populations would seek refuge from the Conquistadores in the new Christian mission settlements, where they hoped Dios (God) would save them from slave raiders and killers.< Less

This was the beginning of the modern Arms Race. Explorers also took appaloosa horses from the American Indians back to China in about 1300 AD.< Less
