Bernal DÃƒÂaz del Castillo (1492Ã¢â‚¬â€œ1584) was a foot soldier in the army of Mexico's conqueror HernÃƒÂ¡n CortÃƒÂ©s. The first edition of his True History of the Conquest of New Spain (as it was entitled in a later English translation) was published in Madrid in 1632 from a manuscript copy sent to Spain shortly after the author's death. Written in a highly accessible style, and describing the experiences of the troops themselves rather than seeing events from an officer's perspective, the work became even more successful than the official accounts and went through many editions and translations. The two-volume edition reissued here was first published in 1904 and is considered a more reliable text, as it was based on the original manuscript preserved in Guatemala City. Volume 2 contains chapters 140Ã¢â‚¬â€œ214 and the index to both volumes.
