Translated from the original manuscript in the Library of the University at Goettingen (Col. ms. hist. 809) as published by R. Pietschmann in Abhandlungen d. K. Gesellschaft d. Wiss. zu Goettingen. Philol. Hist. Kl., N.F., Bd. VI, no. 4 (1906). The second part of the author's Historia indica; a first part (Historia natural destas tierras) and a third which was to contain the history of the conquest until 1572 were projected, but apparently never completed. The first text was dedicated to Philip II in 1572; the second was written in 1610. The edition includes a bibliography of Peru, pp. 341-58. Pagination of this and the Supplement is continuous.The Supplement is another eye-witness account. Internally stated to have been issued as a separate item, yet in fact bound within the previous item. This is a new print-on-demand hardback edition of the volume first published in 1907.
