The Colonial Odyssey of Leyte (1521-1914)

Borrinaga, Rolando O. and Kobak, Cantius J. (Author)   

ISBN: 971-10-1160-4

Cover: Paperback
Available: Yes

This book provides the English translation of Reseña de la Provincia de Leyte by Manuel Artigas y Cuerva. The original in Spanish was trailblazing work and appears to be the earliest known documented regional or local history ever written and published in the Philippines. It contains large “building blocks” of information about Leyte and the Bisayan region that could help reshape a more equitable future content of the Philippine historiography about the precolonial and colonial years.
