The Books and Documents from the Collection and Library Backal Auction, offered by Morton Subastas, will feature works of natural science, geography, travel, executory documents, Mexican history, religion, and more. The available executory or contractual documents represent a primary document history of Mexico and are often used as a resource by scholars. Also of interest to collectors is a selection of original handwritten letters, such as one penned by José María Morelos y Pavón to Captain Gral. Ygnacio Rayón in which he discusses the formation of the Mexican nation and the end of the dominion of Spain. Pavón was a Roman Catholic priest and a leader in the Mexican War of Independence.
There are also several historical books in this sale, including the first French edition of History of the Conquest of Mexico by Antonio de Solís, a dramatist and secretary of state to Philip IV of Spain. His History was first published in Spanish in 1684. It is considered a classic of Spanish prose and is based on the letters of Cortés and the works of Francisco López de Gómara and Bernal Díaz del Castillo. It was first translated into French in 1691.
