Note: Appended to v. 2 is a supplement (1 p. l., 39 p.) having caption title and colophon: Suplemento a la Historia de las conquistas de Hernan Cortés escrita por Chimalpain, ó sea: Memoria sobre la guerre del Mixtón en el estado de Xalisco, cuya capital es Guadalaxara. Mexico, Impr. de Galva á cargo de M. Arévalo, 1827.
The editor states in his introduction that the publication of the history was at first undertaken under the impression that it was an original work by Chimalpain, but that it was later discovered to be merely a translation into the Mexican of the second part of Gómara's "Historia general de las Indias". The Spanish text of the present edition is presumably a retranslation from the Mexican. cf. Sabin, Bibl. amer., v. 7, p. 312, and H. H. Bancroft, Hist. of Central America, 1890, v. 1, p. 314-315.
