The Search for El Dorado.
Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Co., Inc., 1967. First edition 8vo. 272 pp. Corners and spine ends slightly bumped. Light wear to edges of dj, otherwise book is very fresh and clean. "The myth of El Dorado was already greater than a single Indian kingdom. Indeed, in various guises, El Dorado would lure men to South America for the next 300 years! Perhaps the most bizarre episode was that of Lope de Aguirre. A cruel and mad tyrant, Aguirre used deceit and murder to twist a badly organized expedition to his own purpose, which was nothing less than an empire of his own."
