Los caballos De La Conquista "The Horses of the Conquest", Graham, R. B. Cunninghame
39 Graham, R. B. Cunninghame Los caballos De La Conquista "The Horses of the Conquest"
Buenos Aires, Argentina Guillermo Kraft Limitada 1946 Limited Edition; First Impression Full-Leather Very Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Enrique Castell Capurro 
Hardcover with white and black calf skin (or perhaps horse skin) leather cover and handmade leather latches. Written in Spanish. Some wear to edges otherwise very good condition. white fur on skin shows fading. The cover has an engraved image of a goucho (cowboy) or conquistador on a horse with lance or sword in hand.Marbled end papers shows browning due to age. Beautiful color plates. "Don Roberto Cunninghame Graham, the Scottish gaucho who loved and knew the Argentine pampas (plains), relates in LOS CABALLOS DE LA CONQUISTA his broad understanding of this noble, intelligent, and naturally elegant animal, without whose presence the conquest of the America's would have been a task less than that impossible. He accompanies in his pages the strenuous days of Hernán Cortés, following him through the faithful gaze of his chronicler and assistant Bernal Díaz del Castillo, a well-versed and passionate connoisseur of the different hairs and hoists of horses. Follow then the steps of Hernando de Soto ('one of the most congenial conquerors'), on his trip to Peru in the footsteps of Pizarro, and then on his arrival in Cuba and on the landing in the Peninsula of Florida. The conquest of the Rio de la Plata is approached through Felix de Azara and the English Jesuit Falkner, with whom he evokes the epics of Mendoza, Irala and Garay. With them, locates in the few horses that brought in the middle of the XVI century the origin of the legendary wild horses that a few years later had been deployed to the whole width of the pampas, already forming a substantial part of its landscape." (edited review by Soup of Books) Originally published in 1943 this is a limited edition dated 1946 with handmade skin cover. Very nice. Out of focus on scan is due to latches holding cover up off scan table. Request photos.; Illustrations and Color Plates; Folio 13" - 23" tall; 129 pages
