A propos de cet article

Small octavo, [4] xlvii, 312 pp. The second appearance in print (Palau 9082) of any of the writings of Alva Ixtlilxochitl, issued as part of a series of the "Voyages, Relations et Memoires Originaux pour servir a l'Histoire de la Decouverte de l'Amerique, translated by H. Ternaux-Compans. (The first edition of this, in Spanish, appeared in Mexico City in 1829.) The author was a descendant of the Tezcoco royal family as well as the Aztec, who, while not an eyewitness to the conquest of Mexico by the Spaniards in the early 16th century, was intimately familiar with the oral history of it. The Texcocans fought on the side of the Spanish and later complained bitterly of the ingratitude and cruelty of their invading allies. The present work is the final section of the author's Relacion historica de la nacion tolteca, written between 1600 and 1608 and based in part on ancient Indian hieroglyphic paintings and on native songs and traditions. His writings in Nahuatl and Spanish circulated in manuscript form until the 19th century. Alva Ixtlilxochitl's account is the Native version of the Conquest of Mexico by the Spaniards and their Indian allies. Sabin notes that the editor of the Mexican edition of 1829 of this volume, Carlos-Maria de Bustamente, calls the author the "Mexican Cicero." Appleton' Encyclopedia termed Ixtlilxochitl's writings " among the most authentic on the ancient history of Mexico." And Prescott calls the author the "Livy of Anahuac." There is scattered light foxing throughout; book dealer's stamp showing the book was bought at some point in Bogota. Modern red half morocco, over marbled paper, gilt lettering with raised bands. -- very handsome binding. Very good copy. N° de réf. du libraire 6893
