Most widely held works by Maurice Collis
Cortés and Montezuma by Maurice Collis ( Book )
35 editions published between 1954 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The convergence of Cortes and Montezuma is the most emblematic event in the birth of what would come to be called "America." Landing on the Mexican coast on the eve of Good Friday, 1519, Hernan Cortes felt himself the bearer of a divine burden to conquer and civilize the first advanced civilization Europeans had yet encountered in the West. For Montezuma, leader of the Mexicans, 1519 (known in their advanced astronomical system as "One Reed") was the date of a dire prophesy: the return of Quetzalcoatl, a fearsome god predicted to arrive by ship, from the East, with light skin, a black beard, robed in black - exactly as Cortes would. The ensuing drama is described by eminent historian Maurice Collis in a style that is equal parts story and scholarship."--BOOK JACKET
