8 Graham, Winston The Spanish Armadas.
Doubleday and Co. 1972. Hardcover in DJ. Good/Good Quarto 
288 pp

"The history of a great naval war reveals a wealth of interest and excitement unknown to the general reader. For most people the conflict between England and Spain in the sixteenth century consisted solely in the destruction of the Great Armada in 1588 by Drake, Howard, and the English weather.

These pages place that Armada in it true position, as only the most spectacular of many attempts by the Spanish to conquer England and make it Catholic, first by friendship, then by the marriage of Philip to Mary, and later by battle. A vivid summary is made of the disruptive forces in Europe that, thought thirty years, broke down the tradition of amity between England and Spain. It shows how, from the meeting in 1554 between Philip and Elizabeth the two maintained their respect for each other and a fa┴ade of peace long after the wish for peace had gone.

Although the clash of the two great fleets provides the central theme of this work, it makes clear that the defeat of the First Armada did not mean the end of the Spanish navy but rather its beginning on new lines. After 1588 England had only one other real success against Spain, at Cadiz in 1596. Spain launched three more armadas. "

256 pp

"Roughly one hundred and thirty ships and thirty thousand men made up the armada, dispatched by a royal fanatic who thought that ""he could organize a huge operation of war without leaving his study."

In 1884 a Spanish naval captian, Cesareo Fernandez Duro published one hundred and eighty-nine letters of documents of the sixteenth century which he discovered in the royal archives. Between them they told a story of how and why the Spanish Armada made its voyage...." This book is based on that information along with some more contemporary records.

Abrams no date @1970. Hard cover. Good DJ has some soiling and tears. Quarto 
500 pp "Pedro de Palol and Max Hirmer have produced what is certainly the definitive survey of early medieval Spanish art. In his text, which is profusely illustrated with plans and diagrams, Professor de Palol analyses the artistic developments while setting them clearly in their historical context. Professor Hirmer's magnificent series of plates covers a vast range of architecture, frescoes, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, ivory-carving, and gold and silver work. There are detailed notes on the plates, and genealogical tables and maps. As a work of reference, this book is indispensable; as a collection of superb photographs.ö
