Excerpt from The Philippine Islands, 1493-1803, Vol. 1: Explorations by Early Navigators, Descriptions of the Islands and Their Peoples, Their History and Records of the Catholic Missions; 1493-1529

The entrance of the United States of America into the arena of world-politics, the introduction of American in?uence into Oriental affairs, and the establishment of American authority in the Philip pine archipelago, all render the history of those islands and their numerous peoples a topic of en grossing interest and importance to the reading public, and especially to scholars, historians, and statesmen. The present work-its material care fully selected and arranged from a vast mass Of printed works and unpublished manuscripts - is Offered to the public with the intention and hope of casting light on the great problems which confront the American people in the Philippines; and of fur nishing authentic and trustworthy material for a thorough and scholarly history of the islands. For this purpose, the Editors reproduce (mainly in Eng lish translation) contemporaneous documents which constitute the best original sources of Philippine history. Beginning with Pope Alexander vi's line of demarcation between the Spanish and the Portu guese dominions in the New World the course of history in the archipelago is thus traced through a period of more than three centuries, com prising the greater part of the Spanish régime.
