Imperial Spain, 1469-1716 by J. H Elliott( Book )

200 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J. H. Elliott's work is a study of how a barren, impoverished and isolated country became the greatest power on earth in a few decades, and of its equally sudden decline." "At its greatest Spain was master of Europe: its government was respected, its armies were feared and its conquistadores carved out a vast empire. Yet this splendid power was rapidly to lose its impetus and creative dynamism. How did this happen in such a short space of time? Taking in rebellions, religious conflict and financial disaster, Elliott's masterly social and economic analysis studies the various factors that precipitated the end of an empire."--Jacket
Europe divided, 1559-1598 by J. H Elliott( Book )

66 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Empires of the Atlantic world : Britain and Spain in America, 1492-1830 by J. H Elliott( Book )

33 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 1,745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elliott identifies and explains both the similarities and differences in the two empires' processes of colonisation, the character of their colonial societies, their distinctive styles of imperial government, and the independence movements mounted against them. Based on wide reading in the history of the two great Atlantic civilizations, the book sets the Spanish and British colonial empires in the context of their own times and offers us insights into aspects of this dual history that still influence the Americas."--Jacket
The old world and the new 1492-1650 by J. H Elliott( Book )

31 editions published between 1970 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The impact of Europe on a newly-discovered world of America has long been a subject of historical fascination. Yet the impact of that discovery and conquest for the European conquering powers has traditionally received less attention. In this pioneering 1992 book J. H. Elliott set out to show how traditional European assumptions about geography, theology, history and the nature of man were challenged by the encounter with new lands and people; trading relationships around the world were affected by an influx of gold and silver imports from America; while politically, the sources of power were no longer confined to European territory. The 500th anniversary of Columbus's discovery prompted renewed enquiry into the relationship of the Old World and the New; John Elliott's fascinating and now classic account is here reissued with a new foreword addressing the significance of the book's insights for a new generation of readers."--P. [4] of cover
El Greco by David Davies( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: A much anticipated, wide-ranging survey of works by one of the world's greatest artists. El Greco (1541-1614), born Domenikos Theotokopoulos, was one of the most fascinating and distinctive artists of the sixteenth century. His works are immediately recognizable for their brilliant colors, elongated figures, and spiritual intensity. Initially trained in Crete, in around 1567 El Greco moved to Italy where he purportedly studied with Titian. A decade later he is documented in Toledo (south of Madrid), and he spent the rest of his long life in Spain. His paintings and writings offer a thoughtful, frequently inspired response to the varied environments in which he worked--and they reveal that he was deeply engaged with the religious and artistic thinking of his times. This lavishly illustrated book--the first comprehensive English-language publication on El Greco in many years--addresses the full range of the artist's work in painting and sculpture, from his Byzantine icons to his late altarpieces. It considers his personality from both a religious and intellectual point of view, and presents the artist's religious, mythological, genre, landscape, and portrait works, providing the historical context in which they were made. El Greco is the catalogue for an exhibition organized jointly by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the National Gallery, London. The exhibition opens in New York in October 2003, and moves to London in February 2004

Letters from Mexico by Hernán Cortés( Book )

27 editions published between 1971 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hernan Cortes's Cartas de Relacion, 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 Cortes'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. J.H. Elliott's introductory essay explains Cortes's conflicts with the Crown and with Diego Velazquez, the governor of Cuba."--Jacket

William H. Prescott's history of the conquest of Mexico by William Hickling Prescott( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contains a substantial extract from William H. Prescott's major work A History of the Conquest of Mexico. Prescott lived from 1796-1859 and his book was a pioneering view of the Aztec civilization." "The country of the ancient Mexicans or Aztecs, as they were known, formed but a very small part of the extensive territories, which make up modern Mexico. The story of the life of Hernando Cortes, the Conqueror and the tragic story of Moctezuma the Aztec king are essential to this history. In his introduction J.H. Elliott sets Prescott's work against the background of the growth of historical research."--Jacket
