Most widely held works by William Hickling Prescott
The history of the Conquest of Mexico by William Hickling Prescott( Book )
1,201 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 7,608 libraries worldwide
In a series of episodes as fantastic as any fiction, a powerful civilization crumbled at the hands of a small band of warriors. Written by one of America's great historians, this gripping chronicle draws upon the firsthand accounts of eminent sixteenth-century captains and statesmen to relate the overthrow of the Inca empire by the Spanish adventurers under Pizarro's command. Author William H. Prescott's immensely readable narrative crackles with drama as he characterizes both conqueror and conquered. Rich in vivid anecdotes, it recaptures the glories of Inca society before European contact, and it paints fascinating portraits of the conquistadors and their courage, cruelty, and pride. Prescott's reconstructions of the attitudes and motivations behind the tumultuous events of the Spanish conquest offer memorable, insightful views of New World history that have made this book a popular classic. - Amazon

"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
