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, 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

A Jew named Mendel Beilis was the only defendant.
