About This Item

1697 1st ed Las Casas Spanish West Indies VOYAGES Cortez Conquistadors Torture


Bartolomé de las Casas was a 16th-century Spanish historian who published an important historical account of the discovery of West Indies by Spain. This book chronicled the first years of Spanish colonization in the New World; however, it did provide a view of the severe maltreatment of the local tribes in the Caribbean islands. He provides early information on Cuba, Nicaragua, Jamaica, and many other ports and islands. This work also provides details on the exploration and findings of Hernando Cortez!

This 1697 first French edition of 'The Discovery of the West Indies' was among the first books printed to expose the torture and oppression to Caribbean peoples. Casas was named as the Protector of the Indians for his role in seeking to end the cruelty.
