Historical Documents relating to New Mexico, Nueva Vizcaya, and Approaches Thereto, to 1773 ... Spanish Texts and English Translations.
Massive compilation of Spanish Colonial historical documents and letters relating to New Mexico (Santa Fe de Nuevo México) and Nueva Vizcaya both in northern New Spain, today the U.S. and Mexico. The documents were compiled from archives in Mexico and Spain by archaeologists Adolph F.A. and Fanny R. Bandelier and edited with introductions and annotations by Charles Wilson Hackett (1888–1951) of the University of Texas, a pioneering Latin Americanist in the U.S. and Pueblo Indian scholar. Includes much on the founding of New Mexico, 1580–1600, 17th century Nueva Vizcaya, and 17th and 18th century New Mexico. Internally very clean and a very good sound set.
