First edition. With frontispiece map, bibliography and index. Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 6") bound in original publisher's green cloth with gilt lettering to spine. After two introductory chapters, this book deals almost entirely with the period 1739-1810, that is to say, from the outbreak of the War of Jenkins Ear to the beginning of the Mexican war for independence. Synthetic treatment within these pages portraying the complex foreign influence which conditioned or contributed to the outburst of Hidalgo's revolt is certainly not an easy task. In this work eighteen chapters group together that many foci of interest, each essentially integral and episodic in character while no less a part of the general situation of Europe and of the Western Hemisphere prior to 1810. Some minor shelfwear and minor scratches on the covers. From the private reference library of Dorothy Sloan with a commemorative bookplate loosely inserted.
