Notes

First edition of this expansive compendium of South American history, in the variant brown cloth binding. Watson travelled widely as a British diplomat allowing him to write a number of regional histories; "it is on of the advantages of foreign legations, that now and then a man connected with them is found intelligent enough and industrious enough to study the history and character of a people". Watson served in South America from 1865 to 1869.
