Most of the primary source documents immediately prior to the taking of the islands by the Spaniards up to the events immediately prior to the revolution against Spain is contained in the Blair and Robertson volumes. The University of Michigan Digital Library offers the public free access to the scanned pages of these volumes. The link above will take you to a different page on this site where we have a comprehensive table of contents for the 55 volumes. Additionally, we present below the most important documents from the Blair and Robertson collection.
