This work contains the first three Decades and an abridgment of the Fourth, containing the discoveries of Columbus, Vespucius and Cabot, and new discoveries by Cortes. Pietro Martdre d'Anghiera, better known by his Latinized name Petrus Martyr, the first historian of America, was born at Arona, in July, about , and died at Grenada, in Spain, in He possessed eminent a. In he went to Rome where he became acquainted with Cardinal Ascanio Sforza, and Pomponius Laetus, to both of whom many of his letters were addressed.
He was extremely fond of letter-writing, and, it was owing to him that the news of Columbus's discovery, became speedily known to a number of people outside of Spain. In he was ordained a priest and appointed as tutor to the children of Ferdinand and Isabella.
Seven years later he was sent on a diplomatic mission to Egypt, an account of which he has given us in his Legatio Babylonica. Printed at end of above work. From personal contact with these discoverers, as well as from his official position as a member of the Council for the Indies, which afforded him the free inspection of documents of undoubted authenticity, he was enabled' to obtain, at first-hand, much valuable information regarding the discoveries made by the early navigators. These facts he embodied in his Decades, which were based upon his extensive correspondence, but were written with more care and give more ample details.
His works were held in higihest esteem by his contemporaries and have always been placed in the highest rank of authorities on the history of -the first association of the Indians with the Europeans, and are indispensable as a primary source for the history of early American discoveries.

He possessed eminent ability and learning, and is believed to have been t'he first writer to notice in his works the discovery of America by his countryman Columbus, as he is the first who published a treatise descriptive of the peculiarities of the natives of the New World.

Comprising about sixty closely written lines on two folio pages; dated Pachacamac Peru , Ist of January, I This letter was written during thle time when Pizarro and his associates were looking for a suitable site for the new capital of Peru.
Pachacalaac, some twenty miles south of Limla was one olf the pllaces considered. At the same time A. He asked aor the governorship of a country which he had partly explored beyond the territory of Pizarro, and where lie might follow up the discoveries of Magellan. Subsequently, in this very year, Altmagro made his famous march into Chile, after which came the war between 'jizarro and Almagro and the death of the latter on the field of Las Salinas in Translation :-" It lies in a good locality, has mountain and plain, and all advantages added to its sea ports; from that town to this province of Xaitxa Jauja is another sixty leagues, in which the Governor has established another colony which will be very rich on account of the good district it commands, therefore at present all the land is in process of colonisation and all counsel and skill are being used to make it permanent.
As the land is now in such a state that there is nothing further to achieve nor to colonise than what is colonised, I would fain begin again to serve You, and pass beyond this government tot seek and explore other great and very rich lands of which I have heard, to satisfy my desire which is to end my days in your Service. I have thought that the service of pushing forward will be no less than that which You have reaped fromnt this land, and f humbly beseech You to be pleased to grant me the government beyond the limits of that of the Governor don Francisco PiCarro, with all the lands I may discover, colonise, and conquer, and I pray that they will form other new kingdoms and lordships, and that the Governor and I may discover the Strait and treasures, sof that there may be a great fleet at sea and a numerous and powerful army on shore, and that he will aid us in that our endeavour, and the great desire and determination we have ever had and have to increase Your dominions and lordships, kingdom and Royal patrimony.
For by Your granting me this government, the lands which lie beyond may be discovered, which, should You be pleased to order otherwise, would be very difficult to do and could not be accomplished without a great lapse of time and risk and labour to the Spaniards. As Almagro, like so many others of the Spanish Conquistadores, was of low birth and could not write, the letter was written and signed for him by his secretary.

The Church CataJogue only knew of 7 other copies. The number of persons in Spain wishing to emigrate or to join expeditions bound for the New Wtorld increased, and the settlements already established in the islands lost a large part of their inhabitants, carried away to Peru, by the desire for adventure and the wealth to be obtained; and the eagerness to get information from America was greatly intensified. His account was written in Peru at the request,, or by the order of Pizarro.
He returned to Spain in July, , with the first instalment of gold, and his report was printed in Seville, in that year. Xeres was an actor in, or a witness of, the remarkable events which he describes, and his narrative has the freshness and vividness of a story by one writing of what he saw.

The translation of the most importsant passage relating to the origin of the disease is as follows:" Of the origin and birth of this serpentine disease of the Island Hispaniola. The disease which appeared and was seen in Spain in the year of the Lord, one thousand four hundred and ninety and three in the city of Barcelona; the which city was infected and in consequence the whole of Europe and the universe of all known countries which are wiihin reach of one another; the which evil had its origin and birth of old in the Island which to-day is called Hispaniola; this island was discovered and found by the Admiral Don Christobal Colon and up to the present there has been intercourse and communication wiih the people there.
In the following year the irmst Christian King Charles of France hired mlany people and p sused into Italy, and among them were many Spaniards who had been infected by this said infirmity and they started to infect the rest with this said infirmity Historie di, tutti le cose degne di memorie qual del anno sino a questo presente sono occorso nella Italia, nella Provenza, nella Franza, nella Piccardia, nella Inghilterra Woodcut portrait.

GOMARA prefixes a curious address to intending translators, warning them to be accurate and to measure the full significance of the pregnant Spanish phrases, also to pay special attention to proper names. He further declares that he is writing the, book in Latin, so that the translators may take no trouble in that language.
His Latin version never appeared. The Author in his address, "a los Impresores," by wfhom he meant future reprinters of his work, begged themn to omit nothing which he had taken care to insert in this original edition, " mayormente las tablas de la tierra. The difference between Bellero's map and Gomara's proves that the Spanish Government had effectually suppressed the latter, and that the Antwerp publisher was obliged to have a new design prepared which was decidedly inferior to the original in geographical accuracy.
A fine copy, with only one or two slight defects, namely: The blank margin of title and outer margin of some leaves restored. Some facsimiling to the extreme bottom of the two maps, and their outer margins extended and to the corner of two leaves. Gomara was one of the earliest and at the same time one of the ablest of the Spanish historians of the New World. In he was the Chaplain and Secretary of Cortes, this connexion with whom gives value to his work, especially as he had acces to many documents which have since disappeared.

In he went as curate 'to a village in Cuba. He soon began to preach against the atrocious wrongs committed by the Spaniards against the natives, under a system of slavery the most cruel and destructive the world has ever known.
This drew upon him the animosity or' Ihis sordid countrymen. Unable, by any means in hisi power, to check this cruelty, in he returned to Spain to make a personal appeal to Hlis sovereign. Ferdinand's death, which happened soon after his arrival in Seville, put an end to his hopes in this direction, but he found sympathetic friends in Cardinal Ximlenes and Adrian, the liegents, though he encountered general hostility to ihis views.
He returned to Hispaniola Nov. At last wearied with his efforts and 'lack of success, he retired to a Dominican convent in San Domingo, in He there spent eight years in retirement, oocuipied in study and writing. His work was not at first allowed to be printed, but was submitted to the Emperor and his ministers. Twelve years later the work was published with a dedication to Philip, the heir to the throne.
Though the number of victims was contested, it should be remarked that the acts of cruelty which, he described were never called in question. One of the most gruesome books ever written. These four leaves whidh are appended to the Bievissima lRelacion are usually mentioned as a separate tract, though it is really a part of that work. It contains the narrative of a Spanish traveller who witnessed some of the cruelties practised upon the natives by the Spaniards.
This tract gives the eighthi of tihe proposed remedies, and assigns twenty reasons to prove that tlhe Indians sho'uld not be given to the Spaniards in any form of slavery. The Bishop, during his absence in Mexico attending a council,, had written twelve rules to the confessors whom he had appointed in his diocese to govern them in giving absolution. Complaint having been made to the Council of the Indies of the rigour of these rules, the thirty propositions were written to sustain tlheni.
This tract contains a strong enunciation of Las Casas' convictions, which grew out of his controversy with Sepulveda. It contains, first, a summary, by Domingo de Soto, of the differences between the two disputants; second, the arguments of Sepulveda; and third,, the twelve replies of Las Casas to the saane. This tract contains j udicial authorities and reasons why the natives should be restored to freedom.
This tract was written in America in or , for the direction of Confessors, during Las Casas' attendance at thime council held in the City of Mexico, in , and may first have been printed in tlhat city. By these rules the Confesoers of his Bishopric were instructed to deny the offices of the Church to aLl such persons as held repartim,nientos, or who did not xestore the avails of unrequited labour to the Indians. This tract gives tlhe principles on which Las Casas conducts his defence of the rights of the natives, and was evidently written to familiarize the Clergy with the principles upon which he based his whole theory of t!
