López de Gómara, Francisco, 1510-1560?  
La Terza Parte Delle Historie Dell'Indie...
Publisher: In Venetia, Appresso Giordame Ziletti, al segno della Stella, M.D. LXVI [1566].
8vo; 6 unnumbered leaves, 2 blank leaves, 26 unnumbered leaves, 402 numbered leaves. (*8 {*7-*8 blank}, b-c8, d10, A-Z8, Aa-Zz8, Aaa-Ddd8, Eee2). Title continues: Nelloqvale Particolarmente si tratta dello scoprimento della Prouincia di Incatan detta Nuoua Spagna, & delle cose degne di memoria, fatte da Spagnuoli nella conquista della grande, & marauigliosa Città di Messico, & delle altre Prouincie ad essa sottoposte. Nuovamente Tradotta di Lingua Spagnuola, da Lucio Mauro. Bound in contemporary vellum. First line of title-page (La Terza Parte) recently snipped off, as though an owner had been frustrated or confused by the implication of "La Terza Parte"; small hole in leaf 254 affects 3 words; worming in upper margin of leaves 329-360 affects two words of the inner margin on leaves 329-351; worming on leaves 362-364 affects first line of text on leaf 362. Armorial bookplate of Marius Marefuschus; small red library sticker of the American College in Rome. This work continues uniformly the author's Seconda Parte of 1565, itself a continuation of the Prima Parte of 1560 which is another text, by Pedro de Cieza de León. López de Gómara is the first record of Cortéz's expeditions to the Pacific coast, the Ulloa voyages along the coast of upper California, the preliminary journey to Cibola of Fray Marcos de Niza, and the expedition to the fabled Seven Cities by Francisco Vázquez de Coronado. The second book, and a basic source, for the Southwest of the United States -- Texas, New Mexico, Arizona. This is the first Italian edition of this portion of Gómara's text (the first, i.e. Parte Secondo, first appeared in 1554). Gómara served as Cortés's secretary from 1540, when the conquistador returned to Spain. 'Gomara's history is a good history; he derived his information from the highest sources, and he wrote with an elegant brevity and a sense of arrangement that contrasted favorably with the rambling incoherencies of many of his contemporaries. Small wonder it was a favorite book of the time' (Boies Penrose). Despite the defects noted, this is an attractive copy of an important work, one of 'the two pillars on which the story of the Conquest mainly rests' (Prescott). Wagner (SW) 2Y; Alden 566/23. NUC 205: 255-- RPJCB, ICN, NN, TxHi (badly imperfect). Stock#NS0054.

Appr.: | AUD 2,142.86 CAD 2,083.33 EUR 1,339.29 GBP 1,041.67 JPY 150,000.00 MXN 25,000.00 ZAR 25,000.00
