Peter Bienevitz better known under his Latinized name Petrus Apianus , was Professor of Astronomy at the University of Ingolstadt, for more than thirty years. He was an inventor of astronomical instruments and designed one of the earliest maps to contain the name America.

Domingo, Cuba, Martinique, and Guadaloupe. A valuable addition to the text is the " Copia delle lettere del prefetto della India la Nova Spagna detta," which comprises the earliest authentic description of Francisco Pizarro's entry into Peru, the original document having been received in Europe only a year before the publication of this book. Roman Letter, large woodcut of Arms of Charles V. Venice, Stephano da Sabio, I John Carter Brown catalogue This is the First Edition of the translation into Italian of Xeres' " Verdadera relaoion de la conquista del Peru," made by Dominico de Gaztelu, with the omission only of the last sentence and of the 21 stanzas of poetry in the original.

The Church Catalogue only knew of 7 other copies. The number of persons in Spain wishing to emigrate or to join expeditions bound for the New World increased, and the settlements already established in the islands lost a large part of their inhabitants, carried away to Peru, by the desire for adventure and the wealth to be obtained; and the eagerness to get information from America was greatly intensified.

His account was written in Peru at the request, or by the order of Pizarro. He returned to Spain in July, , with the first instalment of gold, and his report was printed in Seville, in that year. Xeres was an actor in, or a witness of, the remarkable events which he describes, and his narrative has the freshness and vividness of a story by one writing of what he saw. This volume also contains the original of the reports of Miguel de Estete on the journey made by Hernando Pizarro from Caxamalca to Pachacamac and to Xauxa published by the Hakluyt Society in With 50 large woodcut maps on 98 leaves.

Lyons, Melchior et Gaspar Trechsel, This edition was edited by Michael Villanovanus, better known as Servetus, born at Villanueva, Aragon, whose preface fills the verso of the title-page, and who also wrote many of the modern descriptions on the backs of the maps. The woodcut borders and ornaments which surround the map-descriptions are supposed by some critics, to be the work of Hans Holbein, and Urs Graf of Basel.

The celebrity of this edition is largely due to its association with the trial and burning alive of its editor, Servetus, in Many copies of the book are said to have been burned at the same time by the orders of Calvin. One of the charges or pretexts brought against Servetus was the alleged authorship of a.

At the end is a Carta missiva to which the author, as was his usual practice, has attached his signature. He was Governor of the Province of Cartagena and filled other high positions.

The knowledge thus acquired of men and events gave him unusual opportunities for gathering information for this, his chief work. Authority was given him by the Emperor to demand from the different governors of Spanish America such documents as he might need for this work. He gives a vivid picture of conditions as they then existed, and his work is a vast storehouse of facts relating to the times. This is the source from which most literary writers have drawn their accounts of the early occurrences in the New World. The work is complete in itself, though Oviedo left a much longer account in manuscript..

This work is the first Italian edition, and was doubtlessly intended as a continuation or fourth part of the collection of voyages printed at Venice in This volume contains two distinct and original accounts of Magellan's Voyage around the world. The first, by Maximilanus Transylvanus, is translated into Italian from the Latin and occupies the twelve leaves of sheets A, B, and C. The second is a short account which Pigafetta published from his own manuscript journal, the chief source of information for the events of that voyage.

This professes to be a translation from Fabre's French abridgment of the journal published at Paris about The final leaf contains a vocabulary of Indian words as used by the Brazilian Indians. The book is preceded by a remarkable preface " al Lettore " in which the Editor who does not give his name shows himself to have been perfectly acquainted with the progress of discovery and research in the west, and to have understood the real importance of the events then taking place, better than most of his contemporaries.

This preface only occupies five pages, but it is indeed a noteworthy review of all the latest advances in geography.

As Harrisse comments, "the great decay of letters in Spain under John II, Henry IV and even of Ferdinand and Isabella, was followed by a revival, due chiefly to the example of Italy at that time, and the influence of a few Italian scholars who had made Spain the land of their adoption, among whom the author of the work before us may be said to have exercised a greater influence than any other.

Those countries have been visited along the coasts by the Spaniards, Colombo of Genoa and Americo Vesputio being the leaders of the navigation.

Principia quedam ex quibus procedendum est in disputationibus ad manifestandam et defendendam Justiciam Indorum.

Tratado comprobatorio del Imperio soberano y principado universal que los Reyes de Castilla y Leon tienen sobre las Indias. A Complete Set of these original treatises, containing the nine parts as issued. With title-pages nearly all printed in red and black with woodcut borders. Bartolome de Las Casas, the Apostle to the Indians of the Sixteenth Century, was born in Seville in of aristocratic lineage, and died at Madrid in In he went with Nicolas de Ovando to Hispaniola, where he settled, and in was ordained a priest.

In he went as curate to a village in Cuba. He soon began to preach against the atrocious wrongs committed by the Spaniards against the natives, under a system of slavery the most cruel and destructive the world has ever known. This drew upon him the animosity of his countrymen. Unable, by any means in his power, to check this cruelty, in he returned to Spain to make a personal appeal to his sovereign. Ferdinand's death, which happened soon after his arrival in Seville, put an end to his hopes in. He returned to Hispaniola Nov. At last wearied with his efforts and lack of success, he retired to a Dominican convent in San Domingo, in He there spent eight years in retirement, occupied in study and writing.

His work was not at first allowed to be printed, but was submitted to the Emperor and his ministers. Twelve years later the work was published with a dedication to Philip, the heir to the throne. Though the number of victims was contested, it should be remarked that the acts of cruelty which he described were never called in question. One of the most gruesome books ever written. These four leaves which are appended to the Brevissima Relacion are usually mentioned as a separate tract, though it is really a part of that work.

It contains the narrative of a Spanish traveller who witnessed some of the cruelties practised upon the natives by the Spaniards. This tract gives the eighth of the proposed remedies, and assigns twenty reasons to prove that the Indians should not be given to the Spaniards in any form of slavery. The Bishop, during his absence in Mexico attending a council, had written twelve rules to the confessors whom he had appointed in his diocese to govern them in giving absolution.

Complaint having been made to the Council of the Indies of the rigour of these rules, the thirty propositions were written to sustain them. This tract contains a strong enunciation of Las Casas' convictions, which grew out of his controversy with Sepulveda. It contains, first, a summary, by Domingo de Soto, of the differences between the two disputants; second, the arguments of Sepulveda; and third, the twelve replies of Las Casas to the same.

This tract contains judicial authorities and reasons why the natives should be restored to freedom. This tract was written in America in or , for the direction of Confessors, during Las Casas' attendance at the council held in the City of Mexico, in , and may first have been printed in that city. By these rules the Confessors of his Bishopric were instructed to deny the offices of the Church to all such persons as held repartimientos, or who did not restore the avails of unrequited labour to the Indians.

This tract gives the principles on which Las Casas conducts his defence of the rights of the natives, and was evidently written to familiarize the Clergy with the principles upon which he based his whole theory of the rights of the Indians to personal liberty and rights of property. The purpose of this tract is to prove the sovereign Empire and universal dominion by which the Kings of Castille and Leon held the West Indies.

Gomara prefixes a curious address to intending translators, warning them to be accurate and to measure the full significance of the pregnant Spanish phrases, also to pay special attention to proper names.

His Latin version never appeared. A fine copy, with only two slight defects, viz. Some facsimiling to the first two leaves.

Cum Gratia, 8 Priuilegio. Beginning with the story of " the first one to find the Indies," the writer states that a caravela, a light kind of vessel, was "navigating the Atlantic in heavy weather, and came upon an unknown land. It returned in many more days than it took to reach the country, and they who returned on board were but the pilot and three or four sailors, who soon died in port as a result of hunger and hardship.

Thus were the Indies discovered, through the sufferings of those who first beheld the land and left no record of its name, or of how it could be reached, or of the year in which it was discovered. It is only known that the pilot died in the house of Christopher Columbus, in whose care the ship's papers were left, and the log of that voyage, showing the latitude of that land. Many amusing pages are devoted to the Indians, their idolatry, religious and funeral rites, miracles, marriage and social customs, laws, and quaint habits, one of which is laconically noted thus: As is characteristic in manuscripts of this period, a vast store of information is packed into the text, which is partly concrete with indubitable historical fact, and at other times expansive with mere hearsay.

A'eparate chapter is allotted to the Conquest of Mexico, wherein the writer discourses upon the relations between Cortes and Montezuma; the death of the Emperor; the hostilities between Spaniards and Mexicans; and Cortes' various journeys between Mexico and Spain. Here, again, the writer comments upon the customs of the Indians; their homes; their festivals and drunken orgies; and the subsequent conversion and baptism of thousands of them.

He ends with a character sketch of Cortes, who, he affirms, was extremely popular with the Indians. Tradotta de lingua Spagnola in volgar Italiano. Roman Letter, long lines to a full page. With large woodcut on title and many fine woodcut diagrams and large map of the world. Medina's book was the first to treat of Navigation. He was entrusted by the King with the examination of pilots and sailing-masters for the Indies, taught navigation, and was held in high esteem as a cosmographer. This book was most popular with the successors of Columbus, and was'translated into several languages.

As the work was originally printed in , the map may be taken as embodying the results of Spanish discovery in , as reported to him by the pilots, with whom his official position as examiner brought him in constant intercourse. It shows the mouth of the Mississippi, "R. SAN," and the lands around the river and gulf of the St. Newfoundland had not yet been'discovered to be an island. The river Baguenay is here indicated, a remarkable feature in so early a map. This seems to be almost the whole contribution during the earliest period of printed cartographical literature from the countries, from which the New World and the South East passage to India were discovered, and from which hundreds of the most important voyages of discovery started during that period.

It is a thrilling story of adventure, and describes the Author's wanderings with the survivors of Narvaez' expedition, which set out in for the conquest of Florida, or all the region afterwards known as Florida and Louisiana.

It is the record of the first journey made by Europeans through any part of the country now included within the boundaries of the United States. Thence he and three of his companions worked their way southwards, and finally succeeded in reaching Mexico. He returned to Spain in , where, having failed to obtain the governorship of Florida, which had been given to Soto, he obtained that of the Rio de la Plata, in He arrived in Uruguay in , and proceeded to Asuncion, the capital of Paraguay, the site of Buenos Aires having been abandoned. On the complaint of his lieutenant Domingo de Irala he was arrested and sent back to Spain in , where he spent several years in freeing himself from the charges made against him.

Constantly with wild tribes of Indians, who in them first saw men with white skins: The narrative of Nufez was entirely written after his return, for he could take no notes by the way. Hence we find it extremely difficult to follow his footsteps, and commentators are unable to agree on the point whether he crossed the Rio Grande near the present town of El Paso, and thence proceeded westward through the most northerly pass of the Sierra Madre and thence down into Sonora and Cullacan, or whether he crossed the Rio Grande two hundred miles farther south.

    Smith's notes to his edition of the book printed in , he carries the travellers east of the Mississippi, beyond the present southern boundary of Tennessee, where he crosses the great river; thence he carries him westward along the banks of the Arkansas and Canadian rivers to New Mexico, crossing the Rio Grande at about 32 deg.

    In the notes to his new version printed in , Mr. Smith adopts an entirely new route. In this he keeps near the Gulf of Mexico, entirely within the present bounds of Texas, crossing the Rio Grande near the mouth of the Conchas River, which he ascends until he reaches the great mountain chain, which he crosses, and there enters Cinaloa.

Zirate had part in the conflicts occasioned by the arrival of Nufes Vela and the rebellion of Gonzalo Pizarro. He was one of the two commissioners sent by the Oidores to order Pizarro to disband his army, which he held at Jauja, and enter Lima with only a small escort.

    Pizarro, however, sent out Captain Villegas, who met Zarate on the way, arrested him, took away his commission, confiscated his provisions, and imprisoned him at Huarochiri. Released after some days, he was persuaded to return to Lima, and it was suggested that, in consideration of his release, he should urge the Audiencia to leave the government to Gonzalo Pizarro.

    Whatever may have been the influence of Zirate in this matter, Pizarro not long afterwards approached the capital and assumed the reins of government. His final plan for this work was to treat of the discovery and occupation of the country, and to narrate the principal events in the history of the colony until the pacification that followed the intervention of Pedro de la Gasca.
