I am undertaking a long-term project to republish historical sources on the Southeast on the WWW. I've already started getting older, public domain sources into digital form. Here are digitized versions of
Bourne's translation of Rodrigo Ranjel's account (ca. 150k) of the de Soto expedition from Oviedo y Valdés' Historia General y Natural de las Indias and a rough version of
Buckingham Smith's translation of the Gentleman of Elvas' account (ca 330k).
The Relation of Luys Hernandez de Biedma is presented in both Buckingham Smith's transcription of the original Spanish, and in his translation. Each file is about 50k, but they are presented in side-by-side frames that are best viewed on a larger monitor. For those for whom this is a problem, the Spanish and English versions may be viewed separately.
I am also making available an early classic of American archaeology--Squier's 1847 first published accounts of his and Davis's exploration of the mounds of the "West".
These are presented as is, but please send any corrections to me so that I can remove any remaining OCR problems.
