Abstract

The activity of Sir Thomas Phillipps (1792-1872) in collecting manuscripts from Latin America and in publishing Juan de Tovar's 'Historia de los indios mexicanos' is studied in the context of his private correspondence. The impact of his Middle Hill Press edition of Juan de Tovar's text on Mesoamerican studies in the second half of the nineteenth century is examined. The study contains as an Appendix a detailed bibliographical description of the incomplete Middle Hill Press edition of Tovar's text.
