The birthday of the modern general history of Spain
This is the second volume of a classic of Spain history (12 vol.). It was the first to assume the whole of findings that Spanish and foreigners historians and researchers of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th had obtained. This is a truly critical history. The author was a son of a Spanish ambassador and an Italian noble woman, and knew languages. That allow him to read bibliography in several languages. Probably, this is the most important history of Spain before the edition of the Espasa History of Spain from 1935.
