This book, originally published in 1989 and long unavailable, is reissued in conjunction with the completed multi-volume translation of the official correspondence of don Diego De Vargas, late seventeenth-century governor and re-coloniser of New Mexico. These personal letters not only illuminate their author but the history of New Mexico as don Diego experienced it. Like the Journals of don Diego de Vargas, this volume reflects years of document collection, translation, and annotation by the Vargas Project directed by John L Kessell. Slight dent to right hand edge front board.596pp.

Hufton, Olwen
This book brings together a mass of detailed and dispersed material on women in early modern Europe, as well as giving readers a new interpretation of the considerable study of women which has emerged over the list two decades. The author's range is ambitious and, unlike previous works in the field which isolate particular aspects of the lives of women or of the versions of woman, she considers the situation of all kinds of women, all aspects of their lives, across the whole of Western Europe, particularly England and France, and over three centuries. The book's approach is thematic with chapters on female rites of passage - girlhood marriage, married life as well as norms, sexuality, witches and saints. 654pp. N.B. Reading crease to spine. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

McEwan, Colin; Middleton, A. M; Cartwright,Caroline; Stacey,Rebecca
The turquoise mosaics explored in this book are some of the most striking objects from the Museum's Ethnographic collection. Originating from the Aztec civilisation and first encountered by Europeans during the Spanish conquest of 1519, these objects are more than simply things of beauty. Among them are masks, shields, helmets and knives, each with particular uses during ritual and performance. Recent scientific investigation has identified the materials that comprise the mosaics, the technical skills required by those who made them and even the places where the turquoise was mined. The book explains the techniques used by the scientists and combines this new information with fascinating historical sources noting, for example, the response to the mosaics in the court of Charles V. Overall, the book will give an up-to-date introduction to these mysterious objects. 96pp.
