Hernán Cortés’s Cartas de Relación, written over a seven-year period to Charles V of Spain, provide an extraordinary narrative account of the conquest of Mexico from the founding of the coastal town of Veracruz until Cortés’s journey to Honduras in 1525. Pagden’s English translation has been prepared from a close examination of the earliest surviving manuscript and of the first printed editions, and he also provides a new introduction offering a bold and innovative interpretation of the nature of the conquest and Cortes’s involvement in it. Elliot’s introductory essay explains Cortes’s conflicts with the Crown and with Diego Velazquez, the governor of Cuba.“The definitive edition [of the letters] in any language. The book is a ’must’ for all those who are seriously interested in this traumatic clash of civilizations and the consequences, both for good and ill, which ensued.”—C.

Another beautiful album.I love Ludovico Einaudis music, I have many of his pieces/albums. I bought the CD of this album and couldnt wait to get the sheet music. I dont think, sheet music-wise, that this is the best of his albums-not from a solo piano aspect anyway: On this album Einaudi uses more instruments, not just the piano, so its difficult to recreate the full effect of some of the tracks eg. Experience. The music is set out very clearly, the only niggle is that the spine of the book isnt ideal for placing on a piano music stand and turning over while you are playing!- and that is what its supposed to be for.
