A History of the Civil Wars of Granada. Translated from the Spanish. Really, two separate works, each self-contained, originally published around the turn of sixteenth century. Quite modern in style and tone, these are closer to historical novels than true history. In his "Chronicle Of The Conquest Of Granada," Washington Irving referred to these texts as largely a "fabrication." In German.
