about this item

Williams presents excerpts of Latin texts written about New Spain--now Mexico--before, during, and immediately after contact. Written primarily for readers and students who have a background in intermediate Latin, the book includes a short biographical essay of each author and a synopsis of each excerpt. The material is separated into two sections on pre- and post-contact writings, and each section is presented chronologically. Latin of New Spain features sections on grammar, word usage, comprehension, and vocabulary, as well as several illustrations throughout the book, a map of Columbus’s four voyages, and a Latin-to-English glossary. Appendices cover background notes on significant persons, places, and terms; a historical timeline; common figures of speech; rhythm and meter in poetry; and a master list of neologisms.
