The Narrative of Alva Nuiez Cabeza de
Vaca, translated by Buckingham Smith,,

ly prized. A second edition of it appeared
at New York in I87I, edited by the late John

of the book in Tales of Old Travels, Nar-
rated by H. Kingsley, London, I869.

known translation by H. Ternaux Compans
in the first series of his collection: Voyages,
