RARE 2 VOLUME SET of a revised fifth edition of a monograph on the geography and history of Spain in `El Cantar de Myo Cid` (El Poema de Mio Cid) by Ramón Menéndez Pidal (1869-1968) - a Spanish philologist and historian who specialized in Spanish folklore and the history and legend of `The Poem of the Cid`, the oldest preserved Spanish epic poem (epopeya) based on a true story of the Spanish hero El Cid during the Reconquista. In 1900, after marrying Maria Goyri, the first Spanish woman to receive a degree in Philosophy and to attain a non-medical doctorate at a Spanish university, Menéndez Pidal and his wife spent their honeymoon retracing the geographic sites and places mentioned in the `Poem of the Cid`. The linguistic analysis by Ramón Menéndez Pidal allows the reconstruction of a 12th century previous text, which he dated ca.1140. Contains 9 maps in color and many b&w plates. Primera Parte - Preliminares / Segunda Parte - El Cid Castellano / Tercera Parte - El Cid, Exluido de Castilla / Cuarta Parte - La Invasion Almorávide / Quinta Parte - El Cid Frente al Emir Al-Muslimin / Sexta Parte - Mio Cid el de Valencia / Séptima Parte - Conclusion / Octava Parte - Apéndices [+ Adiciones & Indice Alfabético].
