A History of Spain by Charles E. Chapman

Christian spain in the moslem period


As

on previous occasions, so now, the writer finds himself under obligations to his colleagues in the Department of History of the University of California. Professor Stephens has read much of this manuscript and has made helpful suggestions as to content and style. Professors Bolton and Priestley and Doctor Hackett, of the "Bancroft Library group," have displayed a spirit of co?peration which the writer greatly appreciates. Professor Ja?n of the Department of Romance Languages gave an invaluable criticism of the chapter on contemporary Spain. Se?or Jes?s Yanguas, the Sevillian architect, furnished the lists of men of letters and artists appearing in that chapter. Professor Shepherd of Columbia University kindly consented to allow certain of the maps appearing in his _Historical atlas_ to be copied here. Doctors R. G. Cleland, C. L. Goodwin, F. S. Philbrick, and J. A. Robertson have aided me with much valued criticisms. The writer is also grateful to his pupils, the Misses Bepler and Juda, for assistance rendered.
