Books of the brave : being an account of books and of men in the Spanish conquest and settlement of the sixteenth-century new world by Irving A Leonard( Book )

41 editions published between 1949 and 1992 in English and Spanish and held by 1,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its original publication in 1949, Irving A. Leonard's pioneering Books of the Brave has endured as the classic account of the introduction of literary culture to Spain's New World. Leonard's study documents the works of fiction that accompanied and followed the conquistadores to the Americas and goes on to argue that popular texts influenced these men and shaped the way they thought and wrote about their New World experiences. Leonard contends, for example, that a chivalric tale reviving legends of Amazon women inspired Spanish adventurers to search the continent for the warrior women and their city of gold." "For the first time in English, this edition combines Leonard's text with a selection of the documents that were his most valuable sources - nine lists of books destined for the Indies. Containing a wealth of information that is sure to spark future study, these lists provide the documentary evidence for what is perhaps Leonard's greatest contribution: his demonstration that royal and inquisitorial prohibitions failed to control the circulation of books and ideas in colonial Spanish America." "Rolena Adorno's introduction signals the lasting value of Books of the Brave and brings the reader up to date on developments in cultural-historical studies that have shed light on the role of books in Spanish American colonial culture. In her critical analysis of the notions that inform Leonard's work, Adorno situates Books of the Brave at the threshold between older, triumphalist views of Spanish conquest history and more recent perspectives engendered by studies of native American peoples." "With its rich descriptions of the book trade in both Spain and America - descriptions that have not been superseded by more recent scholarship - Books of the Brave has much to offer historians as well as literary critics. Indeed, it is a highly readable and engaging book for anyone interested in the cultural life of the New World."--Jacket

"Cronistas como fray Tomás de la Torre, Roberto Tomson, Francesco Gemelli-Carreri, Amadée Frézier y Alexander von Humboldt, entre otros, dan cuenta de su asombro y su curiosidad cuando se adentran en un universo inexplorado, y de su impresión ante el encuentro de culturas distintas. Antes que servir como un testimonio histórico o anecdótico, las crónicas aquí reunidas son un documento vivo, donde la leyenda tomó forma en la vida cotidiana."--Amazon
