£1.50

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

A Bostonian gentleman-scholar who became world-famous as 'the author of the Spanish histories', Prescott drew on manuscript sources in Spain to write the 'epic in prose' that perfectly expressed his idea of history as made by great men - in this case, Cortes. These extracts from the 7-volume work published in 1839 include accounts of Cortes' meeting with Montezuma and the retreat from Tenochtitlan.
