The old world and the new 1492-1650 by J. H Elliott( Book )
79 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 3,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The impact of Europe on the newly-discovered world of America has long been a subject of historical fascination. But the impact of that discovery and conquest for the European conquering powers has traditionally received less attention. In this pioneering book J.H. Elliott set out to show how traditional European assumptions about geography, theology, history and the nature of man were challenged by the encounter with new lands and people; trading relationships around the world were affected by an influx of gold and silver imports from America; while politically, the sources of power were no longer confined to European territory
Imperial Spain, 1469-1716 by J. H Elliott( Book )
180 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"J. H. Elliott's work is a study of how a barren, impoverished and isolated country became the greatest power on earth in a few decades, and of its equally sudden decline." "At its greatest Spain was master of Europe: its government was respected, its armies were feared and its conquistadores carved out a vast empire. Yet this splendid power was rapidly to lose its impetus and creative dynamism. How did this happen in such a short space of time? Taking in rebellions, religious conflict and financial disaster, Elliott's masterly social and economic analysis studies the various factors that precipitated the end of an empire."--BOOK JACKET
Empires of the Atlantic world : Britain and Spain in America, 1492-1830 by J. H Elliott( Book )
19 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 2,811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Elliott identifies and explains both the similarities and differences in the two empires' processes of colonisation, the character of their colonial societies, their distinctive styles of imperial government, and the independence movements mounted against them. Based on wide reading in the history of the two great Atlantic civilizations, the book sets the Spanish and British colonial empires in the context of their own times and offers us insights into aspects of this dual history that still influence the Americas."--Jacket

El Greco by David Davies( Book )
13 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: A much anticipated, wide-ranging survey of works by one of the world's greatest artists. El Greco (1541-1614), born Domenikos Theotokopoulos, was one of the most fascinating and distinctive artists of the sixteenth century. His works are immediately recognizable for their brilliant colors, elongated figures, and spiritual intensity. Initially trained in Crete, in around 1567 El Greco moved to Italy where he purportedly studied with Titian. A decade later he is documented in Toledo (south of Madrid), and he spent the rest of his long life in Spain. His paintings and writings offer a thoughtful, frequently inspired response to the varied environments in which he worked--and they reveal that he was deeply engaged with the religious and artistic thinking of his times. This lavishly illustrated book--the first comprehensive English-language publication on El Greco in many years--addresses the full range of the artist's work in painting and sculpture, from his Byzantine icons to his late altarpieces. It considers his personality from both a religious and intellectual point of view, and presents the artist's religious, mythological, genre, landscape, and portrait works, providing the historical context in which they were made. El Greco is the catalogue for an exhibition organized jointly by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the National Gallery, London. The exhibition opens in New York in October 2003, and moves to London in February 2004

Letters from Mexico by Hernán Cortés( )
18 editions published between 1971 and 2001 in English and held by 1,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hernan Cortes's Cartas de Relacion, written over a seven-year period to Charles V of Spain, provide an extraordinary narrative account of the conquest of Mexico from the founding of the coastal town of Veracruz until Cortes's journey to Honduras in 1525. Pagden's English translation has been prepared from a close examination of the earliest surviving manuscript and of the first printed editions, and he also provides a new introduction offering a bold and innovative interpretation of the nature of the conquest and Cortes's involvement in it. J.H. Elliott's introductory essay explains Cortes's conflicts with the Crown and with Diego Velazquez, the governor of Cuba."--Jacket

William H. Prescott's history of the conquest of Mexico by William Hickling Prescott( )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 827 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 civilisation. 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. It has been immortalised in works such as the play The Royal Hunt of the Sun . In his fascinating int
