History of the conquest of Mexico, and History of the conquest of Peru by William Hickling Prescott( Book )

354 editions published between 1843 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 4,503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The History of the Conquest of Mexico is William Prescott's epic account of Cortes's subjugation of the Aztec people, one that endures as a landmark work of nineteenth-century historiography and dramatic storytelling. Published in ten languages and republished at least two hundred times since its first publication in 1843, it presents a compelling view of the clash of civilizations that reverberates in Latin America to this day. The Conquest of Mexico, judged Prescott's biographer Harry Thurston Peck, is "one of the most brilliant examples which the English language possesses of literary art applied to historical narration," and literary critic Donald A. Ringe calls it "that rare type of book which satisfies fully the demands of both history and art.""--Jacket

William H. Prescott's history of the conquest of Mexico by William Hickling Prescott( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contains a substantial extract from William H. Prescott's major work A History of the Conquest of Mexico. Prescott lived from 1796-1859 and his book was a pioneering view of the Aztec civilization." "The country of the ancient Mexicans or Aztecs, as they were known, formed but a very small part of the extensive territories, which make up modern Mexico. The story of the life of Hernando Cortes, the Conqueror and the tragic story of Moctezuma the Aztec king are essential to this history. In his introduction J.H. Elliott sets Prescott's work against the background of the growth of historical research."--Jacket
