“The fleet was destroyed at the instance of the soldiers, that Cortes alone might not be obliged to make good the payment of the ships, but the troops.”

– Solis, History (Townshend translation, 1770)

 

A famous book on Spanish conquests – one of the most important European sources on Latin American history. Antonio de Solis’s “Historia de la Conquista de Mexico” was extremely popular in both Europe and in the Americas and was known by important colonial figures in Latin and European colonies. It deals, mainly, with Hernando Cortez and his command of invading forces of Moctezuma II and the Aztecs. Specific interactions include:

  • Cortez sailing from Trinidad to Havana, difficulties in voyages
  • Cortez at Cozumel, organizing his troops
  • Aztec opposition at the River of Grijalva
  • Spanish attempts to make peace with Cazique of Tobasco
  • Accounts of Moctezuma’s army and troop sizes
  • The Zempoalans, people of Zimpazingo
  • Conversion of Aztec temples into Catholic churches
  • Account of Hernando Cortez executing resolution to sink his ships
  • Manner of Aztec government
  • Prisoners and tortures
  • Mexican culture – festivals, marriages, rites and customs
  • Death of Cortez

 

This 1730 French edition of Solis’s famous work is beautifully illustrated with portraits and scenes of battle!
