Rutas de la Nueva Espana
Publisher: El Colegio de Michoacan
436 pages with plates, maps, tables, bibliography and indices. Quarto (10 3/4" x 8 1/4") bound in original publisher's pictorial wrappers. A collection of articles by numerous authors in their fields on colonial routes in New Spain. First edition.
This work brings together sixteen studies on the development of land, maritime and waterways throughout the viceroyalty, from New Mexico to the Kingdom of Guatemala. In some of the articles their is an emphasis on the bridges, because their construction was critical for transit of people and goods in mountainous terrain and difficult weather conditions. The maps presented throughout the volume are often the first colonial routes, and so makes this work a valuable working tool for those interested in colonial trade and history.
A fine copy.
