A Chronicle of the Conquest of Granada: Fray Antonio Agapia appears to have been one of the many indefatigable authors of Spain, who have filled the libraries of convents and cathedrals with their tomes, without ever dreaming of bringing their labors to the press. He was deeply and accurately informed of the particulars of the wars between his countrymen and the Moors - a tract of history but too much overgrown with the weeds of fable. In the following work, the manuscript of the worthy Fray Antonio will be adopted, wherever it exists entire; but will be filled up, extended, illustrated and corroborated, by citations from various authors, both Spanish and Arabian, who have treated of the subject. Of the Kingdom of Granada, and the tribute which it paid to the Castilian crown: The history of those bloody and disastrous wars which have caused the downfall of mighty empires (observes Fray Antonio Agapida), has ever been considered a study highly delectable and full of precious edification.
