Title   THE EAGLE AND THE SERPENT. THE SPANISH AND AMERICAN INVASIONS OF MEXICO: 1519 AND 1846.

Publisher    Hamish Hamilton, London, (1978).

Seller ID   12147

163 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w reproductions, maps, photographs. "Based on solid research and mammoth tours of the areas concerned, an impelling picture is painted not only of pre-columbian Mexico and the subsequent M exico created by the Spaniards, but also of the independent republic of Mexico which nineteenth-century Americans coveted so greatly. The book ends with an account of how, through the activities of American settlers in Texas and California and the machinations of President Polk, half of Mexico was seized and the states of Texas and California, along with New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and parts of Colorado, Kansas and Oklahoma were added to the United States..." Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling, slight fading to spine color. NF/VG
