This is an auction for THE CONQUEST OF THE INCAS by John Hemming. review:

FIVE STARS!!! Conquest of the Incas is unquestionably the best book ever written about the 16th century Spanish conquest of the Inca empire in Peru and neighbouring countries. How it was that conquistador Francisco Pizarro and less than 200 men were able to overthrow the Inca empire of 15 million subjects is one of the great tales of history. Hemming tells of that struggle for power in convincing and fascinating detail, focusing on Pizarro and his brothers, who were all brutal, deceitful, and courageous. Hemming gives almost equal time to the Incas and their leaders as they struggle against or accommodate themselves to Spanish rule. The capture and murder of Atahualpa is only the beginning of the story. What followed was a 40 year struggle between Inca and Spaniard (and among Spaniards) for control of Peru. The last chapter of the book moves into modern times as it describes the search for the lost Inca province of Vilcabamba and the discovery of Machu Pichu in the early 20th century. The mystery of the last Incas and their jungle retreats has fascinated writers and achaelogists until the present day -- as has the Inca empire, perhaps the most enigmatic of history. "Conquest of the Incas" is one of the best histories ever written -- so good that it has found few imitators."
