Assistant Professor of California

History, University of California, and the first N. S. G. W. Traveling Fellow in Pacific Coast History.

This work, based almost wholly on hitherto unused material, tends to show that the history of California is not only interesting, but that it is also important in the development of the great nation of which it now forms a part.

Doctor Chapman's volume tends to show that the Spanish occupation of California in the years just prior to the American Revolution was in great degrees responsible for the later acquisition of American frontage on the Pacific,--surely a matter of importance in American life to-day and fraught with vast possibilities for the future.


Publishers 64-66 Fifth Avenue New York

The Rise of the Spanish Empire in the Old World and in the New


In Four Volumes

_Cloth, 8vo_

Volume I The Middle Ages

Volume II The Catholic Kings

This work, the first two volumes of which are now published, aims to show the continuity of the story of the reconquest of Spain from the Moors and of the conquest of her vast dominions beyond the seas. The first volume deals principally with the narrative and constitutional history of the different Spanish kingdoms in the middle ages, and with the growth of the Aragonese Empire in the western basin of the Mediterranean. The second volume describes the union of the crowns and the reorganization of Spain under Ferdinand and Isabella. It recounts the beginnings of a new period of expansion in America and North Africa, and the early stages of the conflict of France and Spain for the supremacy of western Europe. This history forms an indispensable background for the study of Spanish America.
