William Hickling Prescott (May 4 1796 January 29 1859) was an American historian and Hispanist, considered to have been the first American scientific historian. Despite suffering from serious visual impairment Prescott became one of the most eminent historians of nineteenth-century America. Prescott specialised in late Renaissance Spain and the early Spanish Empire. His works on the subject, The History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella the Catholic (1837), The History of the Conquest of Mexico (1843), A History of the Conquest of Peru (1847) and the unfinished History of the Reign of Phillip II (18561858) have become classic works in the field, and have had a huge impact on the study of both Spain and Mesoamerica.

CONDITION
Very Good Condition. The tree calf binding is in lovely clean condition with no scuffing, tears, etc. the corners of the boards remain sharp and the gilt tooling remains bright and clear. The spine label is very good and the gilt title remains clear to read. The hinges are very secure with no cracking or slackening. The marble endpapers are very good. The binding remains tight and square with all contents present. The pages are in very clean condition throughout and all pages are free from foxing, staining and other marks. A very handsome copy in a stunning tree calf binding.
