The Herbert Baxter Adams Prize (European history to 1815) goes to Daniela Bleichmar, Visible Empire: Botanical Expeditions and Visual Culture in the Hispanic Enlightenment (Chicago, 2012). (This book already won the Leo Gershoy Award last year!)
The Premio del Rey (Spanish history 500-1516) goes to Janina M. Safran, Defining Boundaries in al-Andalus: Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Islamic Iberia (Cornell, 2013). (okay not early modern but still!)
Congratulations to Bleichmar and Safran!!!
