Item description for Brevisima relacion de la destruccion de las Indias (Diferencias) by Bartolomé de Las Casas...

A description of tobacco: "a kind of dried herb, placed in a dried leaf, like a musket made of paper like those made by children for the feast of the Holy Spirit; and then, lighting one end, they take in from the other, by inhaling, the smoke, which numbs the flesh and almost intoxicates". The treatises of Bartolom de las Casas are a plea for the plight of the indigenous peoples of South America; the best known of these writings, 'Brevsima relacin de la destruccin de las Indias', was not published until 1552. Along with passages like the one cited above, with passionated descriptions of the New World, Bartolom de las Casas reflects on the Conquest and its legacy. Descripcin del tabaco: son unas hierbas secas metidas en una cierta hoja, seca tambin, a manera de mosquete hecho de papel, de los que hacen los muchachos las pascua del Espritu Santo; y, encendida por la una parte dl, por la otra chupan o sorben o reciben con el resuello para adentro aquel humo, con el cual adormecen las carnes y casi emborrachan. Los tratados de Bartolom de las Casas son alegatos en favor de los indios; el ms conocido de stos, Brevsima relacin de la destruccin de las Indias, no fue publicado hasta 1552. Junto a pasajes como el anterior, con apasionadas descripciones del Nuevo Mundo, Bartolom de las Casas reflexiona sobre la Conquista y sus secuelas.
