        Histoire Romaine continuée depuis la fondation de la Ville de Rome jusques à l'Empire de Tybere. Mise en nostre langue par le commandement du Roy, et dédiée à sa Majesté. Par F. Nicolas Coeffeteau, son Prédicateur ordinaire.

      A Paris, en la boutique de Nivelle, chez Sébastien Cramoisy, 1615. - in-8. 16ff. 489pp. (i.e. 519). 10ff. Plein maroquin olive, dos à nerfs, plats et entrenerfs richement ornés d'un semis doré de fleur de lys, tranches dorées, gardes doublées de papier à la cuve (reliure de l'époque, petits accrocs aux coiffes). Edition Originale de l'une des traductions les plus influentes de la littérature française du 17e siècle. Nicolas Coeffeteau (1571-1623), natif du Maine, fut notamment prédicateur de Henri IV puis de Louis XIII et c'est à la demande de ce dernier, alors âgé de treize ans, qu'il composa cet ouvrage qui eut immédiatement le plus grand succès. "De toutes les traductions que vit éclore cette période de notre littérature, aucun n'eut autant de réputation que celle de Florus, que publia Coeffeteau en 1615. (Il) estimait cette traduction le plus beau de tous ses ouvrages. Il l'avait soignée avec une sorte de prédilection, luttant d'élégance avec l'original" (Charles Urbain). Cette première édition datée de 1615 est très rare. Fenêtre réparée anciennement dans le blanc de la page de titre. Charmant exemplaire en reliure de l'époque fleurdelysée. L'exemplaire conservé à la Bibliothèque Nationale de France est relié en maroquin olive aux armes de Louis XIII. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        L'Idea della architettura universale

      1615 1615 - SCAMOZZI, Vincenzo. L'Idea della architettura universale. Two parts in one volume. [18], 128, 125-193, [2], 194-218, [4], 219-352, [34]; [12], 43, 32-36, 49-172, [4], 173-232, 235-282, [4], 283-370, [20] pp. (numerous misnumbered leaves throughout). Illustrated with two engraved title-pages, six engraved title-vignettes (repeated), one printed tavola, eight double-spread engravings (three woodcut and five engraved), 78 full-page illustrations (39 woodcut and 39 engraved), 18 woodcut head-pieces (repeated), and numerous historiated woodcut initials throughout. Folio, 350 x 233 mm, bound in contemporary Italian calf, spine divided into seven compartments with raised bands, tan morocco and gilt lettering piece to the second compartment, the remainder decorated with gilt floral centre tools and spandrels. In beige cloth protective slipcase. Venice: Giorgio Valentino, 1615. First Edition. Scamozzi's L'Idea della architettura was called the "bulkiest architectural treatise written in Italy" (Wittkower) and next to the Quattro Libri of his teacher Palladio, it was the most influential architectural work of the first part of the seventeenth century. The publication of L'Idea was paid for by Scamozzi himself and is a lavish, beautifully printed book. The text and marginal notes are printed in a roman typeface, the numerous inserted Latin quotations are printed in italic. Each chapter begins with a historiated initial. All of the plates and most of the woodcuts are signed by Scamozzi. "Scamozzi, along with Sebastiano Serlio, Palladio, and Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola, was the most distinguished theorist of the Renaissance; like them he belongs to the artistic culture of northern Italy" (Martha Pollock, in Millard, Italian and Spanish, p. 386). "The last, the longest, and the most ambitious of the Renaissance treatises on architecture, the Idea constitutes a summa of Renaissance thought" (Ibid). Vincenzo Scamozzi (1552-1616) intended to write ten books but only Books I-III and VI-VIII were completed by 1615. Fragments of his remaining four books were incorporated into later editions from Scamozzi's working manuscripts. Since architectural historians have assumed that the later editions cannot be read as Scamozzi would have written them, this 1615 edition has always been treated as the purest expression of Scamozzi's thought. Book I discusses general principles of architecture, Book II urban planning, Book IV contains Scamozzi's influential statement of the five Orders, and Books VII and VIII offers his views on building materials and techniques. A very fresh, clean copy of a book that is normally found in lamentable condition. Rare in such condition. Lacking the Registro leaf at end, as is frequently the case. PROVENANCE: Nicholas Joseph Foucault (1643-1721), first Marquis de Magny, statesman, archaeologist, and royal administrator in the reign of Louis XIV. Foucault amassed a large and varied collection of antiquities, books, and manuscripts, including the Sherbourne Missal, subsequently the property of the Dukes of Northumberland. Early in his career Foucault was active in acquiring books and manuscripts on behalf of Jean-Baptiste Colbert (1619-1683), Minister of Finances for Louis XIV, many of which ended up in French public collections. His library was in part dispersed well before his death, several copies acquired by the Earls of Macclesfield. With his large engraved ex-libris, 'EX BIBLIOTHECA. NICOLAI JOSEPH FOUCAULT. COMITIS CONSISTORIANI'; Earls of Macclesfield with the blind-stamp on first title and the South Library Macclesfield bookplate, engraved in 1860, on the first title verso. Sold as part of the Macclesfield Library, Sotheby's, October 25, 2005, lot 1814. Fowler 292. Millard, Italian 123. Berlin Katalog 2605. Cicognara 651. BAL, RIBA 2917.

        L'IDEA DELLA ARCHITETTURA UNIVERSALE

      Venetiis: [Printed by Giorgio Valentino for] Vincenzo Scamozzi, 1615. FIRST EDITION n. Despite its confusing collation, this is a complete as well as especially attractive copy of the first appearance of one of the great 17th century treatises on Renaissance architecture. In Wittkower's words, it is written by one who "enjoyed an undisputed international reputation and provided a direct link with Palladio." Scamozzi had been a student of, and then assistant to, that great master and took over his unfinished ventures at Palladio's death in 1580. One of two major works by Scamozzi (the other being "Discorsi Sopra L';Antichita di Roma" of 1582), "Idea" is based upon our author';s study of ancient writers in concert with his personal investigation of the ruins of Rome, which he considered essential, the present always being informed by the past. The book is a lavish production with well-designed text, with illustrations that clearly reinforce the written content, and with an aesthetically pleasing overall appearance. Born in Vicenza as the son of a building contractor, and influenced in his early life by Serlio, Vincenzo Scamozzi (1552-1616) was a gentleman-scholar-artist-philosopher of architecture whose interest and understanding in his field was extremely broad. In the "Idea," he divides architecture into four aspects: humanist discipline, building, decoration, and preservation. He delves in detail into cities, public buildings, private houses, foundations, columns, vaulting, roofs, planning, design, tools, etc.--in short, the whole gamut of architectural theory, practicalities, history, science, and art. But according to Millard, the core of this book is that "the 'idea' of the architect rests on basic geometrical forms rather than the imitation of nature practiced by figurative artists. Offering a vast architectural horizon, both geometrically and historically, Scamozzi articulates an eclectic use of the history of architectural theory and practice." Though well represented in auction records, copies that have fallen under the hammer have typically been in varying degrees of distress, as the book was almost always heavily read and referenced by those possessing copies. We are fortunate that our copy was apparently owned over the centuries by armchair architects who apparently confined their building activities to fine book collections.. 348 x 230 mm. (13 3/4 x 9"). Part I: [12], 90, [7], 96, [4], 97-128, 125-190, 190 (misnumbered for 191)-193, [2], 194-218, [4], 219-240, 243 (misnumbered for 241)-352, [34]; Part II: [12], 1-44, 33-36 (misnumbered for 45-48), 49-108, 111-114, 109-110, 119-120, 115-118, 121-172, [4], 173-232, 235-266, 277-279 (misnumbered for 266-269), [5], 271-370, [22] pp. (complete). FIRST EDITION. 19th century honey-brown quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands flanked by decorative gilt rolls. With woodcut initials and headpieces, woodcut printer's device on six section titles, and 89 ENGRAVED PLATES, including two title pages featuring a portrait of the author and an elaborate architectural frame, eight of the plates double-page. Millard Architectural Collection IV, 123; Avery Architectural Library, p. 904; Fowler 292. Joints and extremities just slightly rubbed, mild chafing to paper boards, minor stain to head edge of preliminary leaves, faint dampstain to fore edge of last six gatherings, other trivial imperfections, but still A FINE COPY, the binding completely sound and with only minimal wear, and ESPECIALLY CLEAN, FRESH, AND BRIGHT INTERNALLY.

First edition of the first complete history of Gelderland in Dutch, by Arend van Slichtenhorst (ca. 1615-1657), who studied at Leiden and became a lawyer inis native city Arnhem.

Slichtenhorst starts with the topography and cities of the region, continuing with Gelderland during the reign of Julius Caesar up to the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II. The large folding map, by no one less than Willem Jansz. Blaeu, gives an overview of the entire province, while four double-page maps render parts of the province in greater detail.With presentation inscription dated 1823, and an owner's inscription dated 1694. Some words and sentences struck through, rending them unreadable. Tear on p. 1, repaired with tape, some of the folding plates reinforced with tape as well. Some waterstains thoughout the text and some plates are heavily browned. Binding rebacked, as noted. Otherwise a good copy.

      Augustae Vindelicorum (Augsburg), Typis Christophori Mangij, 1615, - in-8 (ma segnato in-4, mm 192 x 140), pp. (4), 34, (2), legatura in cartone rustico. Al titolo raffigurazione del ''sole ellittico'', nel testo 9 tavole di osservazione solare e 10 illustrazioni, il tutto in silografia n.t., testatine e finalini ornati. Prima edizione, assai rara, di questo trattato dedicato dallo Scheiner al fenomeno di rifrazione solare all'orizzonte che, soprattutto al mattino, fa apparire il sole ellittico anziché sferico, anche attraverso l'osservazione al telescopio. Basato sulle osservazioni che l'astronomo gesuita (1573-1650) compì di ritorno da Ingolstad tra 1612 e 1613 questo lavoro si inserisce nella dibattuta querelle sulle Macchie Solari che nacque tra lo Scheiner e Galileo. Il testo apparve una seconda volta nel 1617 ma con il titolo ''Refractiones coelestes'' e sostanzialmente cambiato nel contenuto e nelle illustrazioni. Esemplare con margini ridotti (foglio del titolo rifilato sul lato esterno, con piccola perdita su 5 righe). Cinti, Galileiana, n. 53. Carli-Favaro p.15. Sommervogel VII 737. Zinner 4523.

      München, Nicolaus Henricus, 1615. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe des ersten Abenteurerromans, der in Deutschland erschien; von größter Bedeutung für die weitere Entwicklung des deutschen Schelmenromans. "Als Albertinus' wichtigster Beitrag zur Weiterentwicklung der deutschen Literatur ist seine Übertragung 'Der Landstörtzer Gusman .' anzusehen, mit der er das Genre des pikaresken Romans erstmals in Deutschland einführte, dessen Einfluß sich in zahlreichen deutschen Schelmenromanen und Simpliciaden niederschlug" (Dünnhaupt). Die spanische Vorlage erschien in zwei Teilen 1599 und 1604. Das Buch ist jedoch weit mehr als eine Übersetzung. "Es bietet in größeren und kleineren Zusätzen, Veränderungen und Anmerkungen aller Art ein lebendiges Bild des deutschen Straßen- und Reiselebens an der Schwelle des 30jährigen Krieges. Die Sprache, noch von der alten Welt, ist eine kräftige, würzige und sehr belebte Prosa, die heute noch gut ins Ohr fällt" (Wolfskehl). Der 2. Teil ist ein deutsches Originalwerk Albertinus'. Das Buch fand so großen Anklang, dass es bereits 1616 neu aufgelegt wurde und weitere Auflagen 1618, 1619, 1622, 1658 und 1670 erlebte. Seine Bedeutung für die Geschichte des deutschen Romans ist kaum zu überschätzen; es eröffnet die Geschichte des Schelmen- oder Picaro-Romans, dessen Tradition über den 'Simplicissimus' und den 'Felix Krull' bis zur 'Blechtrommel' lebendig geblieben ist. Diese erste Ausgabe ist sehr selten. – Titel mit handschriftl. Besitzvermerk.

PREMIÈRE ÉDITION de la traduction française de Jean de Montlyard. Elle succède à la traduction de Gabriel Chappuis publiée également à Lyon en 1576. Cette belle édition lyonnaise de Paul Frellon est «très recherchée, avec un frontispice gravé par Leonard Gaultier, un portrait et de très nombreuses figures hiéroglyphiques et emblématiques gravées sur bois » (Caillet). L'humaniste Jean-Pierre VALERIAN (1475-1558) a publié pour la première fois cet ouvrage, rédigé en latin, à Bâle, en 1556. Il y traite des symboles et emblèmes qui étaient dessinés dans les hiéroglyphes et rassemble sur chacun tout ce que l'on pourrait trouver chez les auteurs anciens de relatif à l'histoire naturelle, à la physique et aux phénomènes de la nature, caché sous ces ingénieuses figures. Il constitue ainsi, les 280 GRAVURES sur bois étant autant de clefs d'interprétation des figures hiéroglyphiques et emblématiques alors représentées dans les arts, le MONUMENT DE LA SYMBOLIQUE ET DE L'ICONOGRAPHIE ARTISTIQUE DE LA RENAISSANCE. On trouve également dans cet ouvrage la représentation de la symbolique des nombres exprimés par la position des doigts de la main : ce code a notamment été utilisé par le peintre Philippe de Champaigne (1602-1674) qui possédait cette édition lyonnaise de 1615.

        De Christiana expeditione apud Sina suspecta ab societate jesu.

      Augsburg, Christoph. Mangium, 1615. - [14], "646" [= 648], [10] pp. With engraved title-page by Wolgang Kilian and an engraved folding plan. 19th-century tanned half sheepskin, gold-tooled spine, marbled sides. First edition of "the most influential description of China to appear during the first half of the 17th century" (Hanotiau). Ricci (1552-1610), an Italian Jesuit missionary, arrived in China in 1582. Adopting Chinese dress and learning the language, he succeeded where other missionaries had failed. He served in Nanchang, Nanking, and received permission to establish a missionary post in Beijing in 1610. During these years, he kept a journal which presented the history of Jesuit mission in China from its beginning in 1582 to 1610, the year of his death. This manuscript was translated from the Italian into Latin by Ricci's successor Trigault (1577-1628), who tried to elicit support for the mission in China. Trigault, however, changed many passages of Ricci's journal and augmented it with information based on several Portuguese reports. "The resulting volume contains not only a history of the Jesuit mission but also includes a wealth of information about China in the chapters describing Chinese geography, people, laws, government, religion, learning, commerce and the like" (Hanotiau). - The title-page, engraved by Wolfgang Kilian, gives the title on a cloth hanging in a portico, flanked by the figures of St Francis Xavier and Matteo Ricci, and with a small map of China, Korea, Japan and Formosa, with the Great Wall depicted, at the foot. - With library/deaccesion stamps. Engraved title-page trimmed down and mounted on browned leaf, some thumbing on the few first and last pages and some minor foxing thoughout, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed along the extremities of the spine and front hinge partly cracked, otherwise good. Cordier, Sinica, col. 809; Howgego, to 1800, R40 & T66; cf. Hanotiau 14 (2nd French edition).

Recoeuillie des plus asseurés memoires.

      A Leyde: Chez Loys Elzevier 4to (20 cm; 8"). [4] ff., 293 [i.e., 297], [1] pp., 14 fold. plates, port., coat of arms.. 1615 French-language translation of De bloedige belegeringe der stad Oostende in Vlaanderen, a classic account of siege of Ostend (1601–04), a protracted battle during the Eighty Years' War (i.e., the War for Dutch Independence) that eventually ousted the Dutch from Belgium. The text is illustrated with a full page engraved portrait of Mauretius of Nassau, an engraving of his coat of arms, and => 14 engraved folding plates. A curious aspect of this Elzevir production is that the firm used very inferior paper and many of the surviving copies are severely browned in sections; this copy is no exception. The anomaly is clearly visible in the copy that the Austrian National Library (i.e., Österreichische Nationalbibliothek) digitized for googlebooks. Contemporary vellum over pasteboards; a large portion of the vellum gone from the rear cover, exposing the boards, and front free endpaper lacking. Evidence of ties. Several quires severely browned, others age-toned; some leaves loosened; worming in margins, only occasionally entering text. A lesser copy, essentially a near good one; still, rare and interesting.

      Argentorati: Per Lazarum Zetznerum 16mo (11.7 cm, 4.6"). 390, [10 (9 index, 1 blank)] pp.. 1615 Conveniently compact early 17th-century printing of this gathering of medieval natural philosophy, medicine, and lore regarding women, sex, and reproduction, attributed at the time to St. Albertus Magnus but likely written by one of his disciples. Topics include the influence of the planets over the formation of the fetus, the signs of chastity and the loss thereof, and impediments to conception. The Secretis Mulierum is followed by De secretis naturae, which adds chapters on anatomy, menstruation, lactation, heat and frigidity in women, etc. Both works cite astrological and alchemical effects. This volume offers an early example of a very typical German style of paper with visible fiber inclusions, more commonly noted in the 18th century.

Provenance: Front pastedown with early inked ownership inscription of yachtsman, mountaineer, and amateur scientist Captain M[arshall] Hall (1831–96), a Fellow of the Geological Society and one of the founders of the Mineralogical Society, as well as the organizer of the deep-sea dredging cruise of the "Norna" in 1870; title-page with partially shaved early inked inscription of James Casey. Contemporary vellum, spine with hand-inked title; vellum dust-soiled with chip to back joint, front free endpaper lacking. Front pastedown and title-page with inscriptions as above. Pages age-toned, some lower corners bumped; one leaf with tear from outer margin, touching a few letters without loss. => A nice copy of a perennially intriguing work, with additional interest from its provenance.

        S. Asteri Episcopi amaseae homiliae Graecè & Latinè nunc primùm editae Philippo Rubenio interprete.

      Antverpiae: Ex Officina Plantiniana, apud viduam & filios Ioannis Moreti 4to (24.13 cm, 9.5"). [6] ff., 284, pp., [2] ff.. 1615 First edition. A multi-part memorial volume from the Plantin–Moretus press in honor of Philippe Rubens (1574–1611), brother of the famed artist, whose Greek and Latin rendition of the Homilies by Asterius, Bishop of Amasia (ca. 375–405), occupies the first section of the text, here in Greek and Latin printed in double columns. Little is known about Asterius, Bishop of Amasea, and there has been much scholarly debate regarding exactly which homilies should be attributed to his authorship and which to other early Christians, including Asterius the Sophist; the Catholic Encyclopedia online says his works provide "valuable material to the Christian archaeologist." The second section here includes verses Rubens composed in the later years prior to his death in 1611 and dedicated to illustrious members of his circle including the humanist Justus Lipsius, Janus Woverius, and Peter Paul Rubens and Isabelle Brant, who married in 1609. Brant’s father, Jan, composed the introductory letter to the reader. The volume was published at the request of Cardinal Ascanius Columnas in an edition of => only 750 copies, and was printed at Antwerp at the press of Moretus’ widow and sons with the famous Plantin device appearing in two versions (engraved, to the title, and woodcut, to the final recto). A full-page engraved funeral portrait of Rubens engraved by Cornelius Galle => after Peter Paul Rubens signals the beginning of the third section, in which Jan Brant records the life of his son-in-law’s brother and transcribes his epitaph. Even Balthasar Moretus contributes an epigram in honor of the deceased . In the fourth section, Rubens’ own orations and selected letters appear, i.a. his funeral oration to Philip II of Spain. Josse DeRycke contributed the final funerary tribute. Done up in fully elegant Plantin–Moretus style, the volume has in addition to its careful typography and full-page plate and devices been lavished throughout with two-line block initials and four-line historiated woodcut initials; also, it offers several intricate woodcut tailpieces. Searches of NUC Pre-1956 and WorldCat locate only eight copies in U.S. institutions, one of which has been deaccessioned; most are => not in obvious places. Period-style full brown calf, covers framed in blind double fillets, spine with gilt-stamped red leather title-label, raised bands with blind tooling extending onto covers. With a few odd spots to the text only, this is a => remarkably fine, crisp copy. All edges green.

        An exposition of certaine difficult and obscure words, and termes of the lawes of this realme. Newly amended and augmented, both in French and English, for the helpe of such young students as are desirous to attaine to the knowledge of the same.

      Printed [by Adam Islip] for the Company of Stationers, London 1615 - " 8vo. ff. [iv], 196, double column. English in Black letter, French in Roman letter. Small typographical ornament on t-p, engraved bookplate of Edward Jackson Baron, on pastedown. Light age yellowing, small closed tear at gutter of title, title and verso of last a bit dusty. A very good copy, crisp and clean, in contemporary limp vellum, remains of ties. A finely printed and well preserved copy of John Rastell’s immensely popular and useful legal dictionary; both the first English dictionary and first English law dictionary. "John Rastell (1470?-1536), a printer and barrister of Lincoln’s Inn, wrote and then published the first edition of this book in 1527. Originally, it was in Law Latin and Law French. In the second edition of 1530, a parallel English translation was added - perhaps by Rastell’s son William (1508 - 1565), who had been studying law at Oxford and would soon become a barrister himself. This [present] edition reflects the joint efforts of father and son. A reviser named Paget (a barrister of the Middle Temple may also have contributed to the work . The Rastells' work is notable in several ways. First, it is a lexicographic landmark because it antedates by 11 years the first general English dictionary, written by Sir Thomas Elyot. Second, for the its time it was a sophisticated piece of lexicography that would provide definitions for legal terms in other dictionaries for generations to come. (.John Bullokar (1616), Thomas Blount (1656), Edward Phillips (1658) and Henry Cockeram (1670) borrowed heavily from Rastell - and through the 18th century still other writers borrowed from them). Third, the side by side translations marked a typographic innovation for dictionary-makers; apart from the typefaces, the columns look surprisingly modern more than 400 years later. Fourth, the dictionary had an extraordinary life through 29 editions that spanned a period of 292 years (the final American edition having appeared in 1819) - a longevity that few if any other lawbook can rival." Bryan A. Garner. ‘Garner on Language and Writing.’ As Marvin observes, it remains a useful dictionary because it "reflects the common law at the close of the year-book period with much fidelity." A very good copy. STC, 20715. ESTC S115775 English" [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      München, Nic. Henricus, 1615. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe des ersten Abenteurerromans, der in Deutschland erschien; von größter Bedeutung für die weitere Entwicklung des deutschen Schelmenromans. "Als Albertinus' wichtigster Beitrag zur Weiterentwicklung der deutschen Literatur ist seine Übertragung 'Der Landstörtzer Gusman .' anzusehen, mit der er das Genre des pikaresken Romans erstmals in Deutschland einführte, dessen Einfluß sich in zahlreichen deutschen Schelmenromanen und Simpliciaden niederschlug"(Dünnhaupt). Die spanische Vorlage erschien in zwei Teilen 1599 und 1604. Das Buch ist jedoch weit mehr als eine Übersetzung. "Es bietet in größeren und kleineren Zusätzen, Veränderungen und Anmerkungen aller Art ein lebendiges Bild des deutschen Straßen- und Reiselebens an der Schwelle des 30jährigen Krieges. Die Sprache, noch von der alten Welt, ist eine kräftige, würzige und sehr belebte Prosa, die heute noch gut ins Ohr fällt" (Wolfskehl). Der 2. Teil ist ein deutsches Originalwerk Albertinus'. Das Buch fand so großen Anklang, dass es bereits 1616 neu aufgelegt wurde und weitere Auflagen 1618, 1619, 1622, 1658 und 1670 erlebte. Seine Bedeutung für die Geschichte des deutschen Romans ist kaum zu überschätzen; es eröffnet die Geschichte des Schelmen- oder Picaro-Romans, dessen Tradition über den 'Simplicissimus' und den 'Felix Krull' bis zur 'Blechtrommel' lebendig geblieben ist. Diese erste Ausgabe ist sehr selten. – Titel aufgezogen, Unterrand mit Namenseintrag entfernt und angerändert. Ohne die letzten weißen Blätter in den Vorstücken.

        Vida admirable y prodigiosas virtudes del venerable y apostolico padre Francisco del Castillo de la Compañia de Jesus, natural de Lima, ciudad de Los Reyes en la provincia del Perù.

      Jesuit priest Francisco del Castillo (1615-73) was born in Lima and educated in the Jesuit Colegio Real de San Martín. He entered the Society of Jesus as a novice on the last day of 1631 and took his final vows in early 1650. Even before that, he had begun evangelic work among the black population and notably, as did the Testerian method used in Mexico among the Indian population, he => used drawings in support of his oral delivery.Castillo studied the Chiriguano language (of the Guarani family) in expectation of being a missionary among them, but was sent to Chile as a personal chaplain to the nephew of the Viceroy instead; and upon returning to Lima a few years later he learned that the mission to the Chiriguanos had been abandoned. Then, redoubling his work among the blacks, he learned "Angolan" (i.e., probably Bantu) in order to serve his flock, and he is said to have composed doctrinal works in that language which he left in manuscript. His work among the blacks was especially directed to those ("los desamparados") who had been abandoned, often to helpless homelessness, by their owners. Among other benefactions and with the support of the viceroy, the Conde de Lemos, he constructed a church for them, La Iglesia de los Desamparados; the biography devotes pp. 270 to 278 to describing it and pp. 294 to 312 to describing its statuary. => These pages (and the sheer number of them!) suggest the richness that serious sponsors could set forth even for the humblest in late-17th-century Peru.=> The present biography is by a fellow Jesuit who knew Castillo. NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPBE, and the OPAC of the Spanish National Library show two U.S. library copies, plus one in Scotland, one in Mexico, six in Spain, and one in Chile. Provenance: On title-page, old inked ownership inscription of a Jesuit colegio.
