THE INDIAN EMPEROUR: OR, THE CONQUEST OF MEXICO BY THE SPANIARDS.

(London: Printed by T. Warren for H. Herringman, 1696). 220 x 151 mm. (8 3/4 x 6"). 4 p.l., 55, [1] pp. Eighth Edition.

19th century half vellum with marbled boards, smooth spine, black label with gilt lettering. A few pages with ink underlining. Macdonald 69i; Wing D-2296; ESTC R231435. Minor wear and soiling to binding, but completely sound; contents somewhat browned, light scattered foxing and offsetting, upper margins trimmed quite close (often cutting into running titles) and two leaves with shorter fore margins (grazing a letter or two off each line), other trivial defects, but still a clean and readable copy of this scarce edition of Dryden's ahistorical dramatization of the Spanish conquest over the Aztec Empire, depicting Cortez as a heroic and fair-minded figure.
