Narratives of the voyages of Pedro Sarmiento de Gambóa to the straits of Magellan by Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa( )

72 editions published between 1768 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India. This 1895 volume contains the first English translation of the then recently discovered reports of Pedro Sarmiento de Gambóa, a sixteenth-century Spanish explorer, astronomer, historian and scientist. As commander of the Pacific naval station, he explored the west coast of South America, and founded Spanish settlements (which subsequently failed due to famine) along the Magellan Straits, which he was also the first to survey

The second part of the author's Historia indica
The history of the Incas by Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa( )

92 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in Spanish and English and held by 1,338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This rare manuscript -- written by a Spanish military officer and dedicated to King Philip II of Spain in 1572 -- is considered one of the primary sources of information on the pre-Conquest history, traditions, and chronology of the Incas. One of the most authentic and reliable records of the period, it was based on carefully verified evidence provided by the Incas themselves. Rich in details, this authentic study not only contains full accounts of ceremonies, festivals, and religious beliefs, it also includes detailed narratives of the origin of the Incas, ancient systems of land division, early settlements, biographical sketches of major rulers, the Incas' law and administration, the coming of the Spanish conquistadores, the execution of Atahualpa -- the last Inca emperor -- and much more. Sarmiento's fascinating history is followed by Captain Baltasar de Ocampo's sensitively written account of events leading up to the 1571 execution of the ill-fated Tupac Amaru, a young heir of the Inca rulers, and Ocampo's description of events in the province of Vilcapampa during the first decades of Spanish settlement. Accompanied by a lexicon of Quechua words, a list of place names, and an extensive bibliography that includes important contemporary documents, this affordable reprint of History of the Incas will be of great interest to students of the ancient cultures of South America, and of the Incas in particular
