A History of Spain
by Charles E. Chapman
Publisher: The Macmillan Company 1918
Number of pages: 559
The present work is an attempt to give in one volume the main features of Spanish history from the standpoint of America. It should serve almost equally well for residents of both the English-speaking and the Spanish American countries, since the underlying idea has been that Americans generally are concerned with the growth of that Spanish civilization which was transmitted to the new world.
