Garcilaso de la Vega became an author in the European sense, employing the technology of print and the discipline of classical history in order to publish histories of the Spanish and the Incas. In this early printed edition, Garcilaso narrates Hernando de Soto's conquest of Florida. The title page proclaims both Garcilaso's Incan heritage and his status in the Spanish colonial hierarchy.
