      NBG XXXXV, cols. 680-682. Interesting collection of autograph signed letters containing notes on personal, political and maritime matters, written by the French Grand Admiral Comte Laurent Jean François Truguet (10 January 1752-26 December 1839), knight of the Grand-Cross of the Legion d'Honneur. In 1765 he entered the Navy and took part in numerous battles in the service of the Ancien Regime. Major de Vaisseau from 1784, he cooperated on the tasks assigned to M. Choiseuil-Gouffier, ambassador to Constantinople, and was charged with instructing the Ottomans in the arts of fortification, artillery, naval architecture, etc. As an enthusiastic Republican, he supported the Revolution and was promoted to the rank of rear admiral in 1792. He bombarded Nice, Villefranche and Oneglia. Visiting Corsica, he was received by the Bonaparte family and began a romance with Elisa, sister of the future emperor. In 1804 he took a public stand against the establishment of the Empire in a letter that became historic. This consigned him to five years of severe disgrace. In 1809, however, the Emperor recalled him and gave him the command of the Kingdom of Holland's navy. After the fall of the Empire Truguet returned to Paris where Louis XVIII brought him back into the navy at the head of the naval corps. On the second restoration he was given overall command of the Brest fleet. At the end of the July monarchy, Truguet was elevated to the post of Grand Admiral, the highest naval honour.Important collection in good condition.

        Cueba de Santo Domingo y frutos cogidos por su meritos ya en los nuevos Martyres de Tunkin, el venerable Padre Fray Matheo Alonso de Leciniana, y su compañero el venerable Padre Fr. Francisco Federich, del Orden de Predicadores, y de la Provincia del Santisimo Rosario de Philipinas

      1752 - News of the Philippines and Tonkin; a copy enhanced with 8 unknown plates made in Manila in the 18th century, representing the martyrs. 1752. Madrid. Imprenta de Domingo Fernandez de Arrojo. In 8vo (206 mm x 149 mm). 1 [blank] + 16 ff. + 202 + 7 ff. +1 [blank] + 8 plates. Contemporary vellum restored, spine lettered in ink. A fine copy, with oxidation spots to few leaves; 8 plates tipped on heavy paper interleaved in the text. First edition. A special copy, added with plates made in Manila, of an already rare work on the martyrs of Tonkin and the Philippines: Navamuel explains the progress the missionary activity of the Ordo Predicatorum (Dominican Order) in the East Indies, mainly in the Philippines and Vietnam. The arguments are given largely through the lives, work and martyrdom of Fray Saint Mateo Alonso de Leciniana and Fray Saint Francisco Gil de Federic under the reign of Trinh Doanh. Saint Leciniana (1702 ? Tonkin 1745) entered the Dominican Convent of Segovia, where he resided until sent to the School of Santo Tomas (Manila), and later Tonkin; in the last place he learned the native?s tongue and began preaching; after being denounced, he was wounded and captured, sent to Nam-dinh and then Hanoi, imprisoned and trialed, sentenced to death and executed, for not wanting to step on the cross. Saint Federic (1702 ? Tonkin 1745), also of Spanish birth, asked to be allowed to travel and work in the Indies. He was sent to Luzon, were he preached to the native people of Bataan and Pangasinan, also learning their tongue; suffered a similar fait than the former, only jailed for 8 years, suffering torture and humiliation, refused being rescued by ransom, and died after being sentenced to death. They met in jail, and died the same day, after the commutation of their death penalty was revoked. The interleaved engraved plates are remarkably rare; Lorenzo Atlas engraved them after drawings of Father Joseph Azcarate. We have been unable to locate them bibliographically except for an obscure note, nor could we trace any copy having appeared onto the market. Medina in his introduction to the seminal ?La imprenta en Manila? (1896), included a short ?biography? of the engravers of Manila; in it, he praises Lorenzo Atlas ?Figura con cierto brillo relativo como artista por sus laminas del glorioso martiorio de los franciscanos en el Japon? (pp. XLIX); Atlas was also responsible for full page plate of the martyrdom of the Saints at Japan, as well as the plate in Murillo Velarde?s work. One of the plates represents Saint Leciniana, and mentions his martyrdom in Tonkin. The artist for most is Fray Joseph Azcarate of whom the only reference is actually a mention of his owning of 5 copper plates representing the Dominican martyrs of China, probably mistakenly referring to the martyrs of Tonkin. They comprise, amongst others: 1- A laudatory poem on Charles III (signed ?Manilensis. Anno 1770.? 2- Fray Peter M. Sanz, depicted with a sword through his head, signed by Fray Joseph Azcarate, and engraved by L.[Lorenzo or Laureano] Atlas ?P. F. Jph Azcarate O. P. delin. L.

        Political Discourses. The Second Edition, Edinburgh: printed by R. Fleming for A. Kincaid and A. Donaldson, 1752.

      - Second edition, published in the same year as the first. See Jessop, p. 23, Todd, p.194. 'Though called a "second edition", this is actually a reimpression of the first' (Chuo 72). 'Hume notes in “My Own Life” that, like the Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals, he wrote the Political Discourses during the two years that he spent mostly at his brother’s home at Ninewells beginning in 1749. He also notes that it was his only work “that was successful on the first publication. It was well received abroad and at home,” more specifically, it transformed his reputation in France. In 1758 Hume combined these essays with those of Essays Moral and Political (1741-42), titling the combination Essays Moral, Political and Literary' (James Fieser, A Bibliography of Hume’s Writings and Early Responses, Thoemmes Press, 2003, p. 21). 12mo, [vi], 304 pp., p. 208 misnumbered 108, contemporary double gilt-ruled calf, covers worn but expertly refurbished, modern bookplate on front pastedown, small marginal hole in leaf Y (paper flaw), no inscriptions or library stamps and virtually no browning, a very good copy.

        Abhandlung, welche bey der Akademie zu Dijon im Jahr 1750. Denn Preis über folgende von der Akademie vorgelegte Frage davon getragen hat: Ob die Wiederherstellung der Wissenschaften und Künste etwas zur Läuterung der Sitten beygetragen hat? Aus dem Französischen des Herrn Rousseau, eines Genfers. Leipzig: Friedrich Lankisch, 1752 [bound with] Vertheidigung der Gelehrsamkeit: und sonderlich der schoenen Wissenschaften gegen den Herrn Rousseau, aus Genf, am hoechsten Geburtsfeste Sr. Koen. Hoheit des Durchlauchtigsten Koenigl. Churprinzen zu Sachsen, in dem philosophischen Hoersale zu Leipzig unternommen, von Innenbenanten. Leipzig: Bernhard Christoph Breitkopf, 1752.

      - Very rare first German edition of Rousseau's 'First Discourse', the work that made him famous throughout Europe, introducing key themes developed in his later writings. 'In 1749 the Academy of Dijon announced a prize for an essay on the effect of the progress of civilisation on morals. Rousseau competed, taking as his thesis the paradox of the superiority of the noble savage, and won the prize. Next year he published it, under the title of Un Discours sur les arts et sciences, to resounding applause' (PMM, p. 124). The French original was reviewed by Lessing in 1751, and was swiftly followed by this translation by the scientist Johann Daniel Titius -'a very productive member of Gottsched’s so-called translation factory, or "Ãœbersetzungsmanufaktur"' (Dictionary of Eighteenth- Century German Philosophers). 'Rousseau's [first] Discourse had a tremendous impact in Germany, occasioning a wave of response to his provocative denial that advancements in science and the arts brought with them moral improvement in mankind. This challenge to so bedrock a conviction of the entire Aufklärung could hardly go without rebuttal. Instead, German tomes ponderously full of piety for progress lumbered onto the field of discourse to denounce - or at least to correct - the wayward Genevan. Gottsched in Leipzig played a major role in orchestrating this scholarly outrage' (John H. Zammito, Kant, Herder, and the Birth of Anthropology, Chicago, 2002, p. 92). Bound second here are rare early examples of this scholarly German outrage by four young members of the Gesellschaft der freyen Künste, that Gottsched had founded in Leipzig the same year: Johann Friedrich Burscher (b. 1732, secretary of the Gesellschaft), Wilhelm Abraham Teller (b. 1734), Karl Friedrich Brucker, and Johann Traugott Schulz. Gottsched's own introduction in Latin is appended. Rousseau mentions these 'quatres sermons allemands' at the beginning of the Preface to his play Narcisse (1753) as examples of the misguided hostility his First Discourse had so quickly provoked. 2 publications in one volume, 8vo, 61, 134 (14 misnumbered 16), [1] pp., mid twentieth-century boards with hand-lettered paper spine label, contemporary annotation on the (repaired) front free endpaper, small library stamp on first title-page, faint marginal waterstain on the first and last few leaves, one leaf with an ink splash, otherwise very good clean copies.

        Bibliographia Poetica: A Catalogue of Engleish [sic] Poets, of the Twelfth, Thirteenth, Fourteenth, Fifteenth, and Sixteenth Centuries, With a Short Account of Their Works

      12mo. Modern brown cloth rebind with burgundy leather spine label. 407pp. Very good. Modern binding of course fine and pristine; some age toning about the edges of the title page; original text block clean and quite handsome. First edition. Ritson (1752-1803) was an eccentric but highly-regarded English antiquarian whose many collections of early texts includes such volumes as "A Select Collection of English Songs" (1783) and "Ancient Songs and Ballads from the Reign of King Henry the Second to the Revolution" (1792), "Robin Hood: A Collection of All the Ancient Poems, Songs, and Ballads, Now Extant Relative to That Celebrated English Outlaw" (1795). This unique copy of "Bibliographia Poetica" belonged to the American poet, editor and essayist JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL (1819-91), with his signature and the year "1843" boldly penned in brown ink at the top of the title page. Lowell makes three interesting editorial comments in the margins. On page 157, in a discussion of George Chapman, Lowell brackets the text "9. 'Justification of a strange action of Nero in burying with a solemn funerall one of the cast hayres of his mistresse Poppaea,' 1629. 4to. 10. 'A just reproofe of Juvenall,' 1629. 4to." -- and pens in "These are one Work. Vide 'Poetical Decameron' Vol1, p60" in his miniscule but neat hand. On page 242, Lowell pencils an asterick alongside the name John Higins, and at the bottom of this page notes, "He says at the end of the story of Mempricius that he was not yet thirty in 1575." And last on page 299, alongside the text "PHILLIP JOHN wrote and publish'd 'A rare and strange historicall bouell of Cleomenes and Sophonisba, surnamed Juliet; very pleasant to reade:' printed by Hugh Jackson, 1577, 8vo," Lowell neatly pens, "This Phillip also published 'The Life & Death of Sr Phillip Sidney, late Lord Governour of Flushing: His funeralls Solemnized in Paule's Church where he lyeth interred: with the whole order of the mournfull shewe as they marched through the citie of London on Thursday the 16 of February 1587. At London printed by Robt Waldegrave re 1587' Vide Collier's Poetical Decameron Vol 11. p. 50." Intriguing to note Lowell's attention to detail and the depth of his bibliographical expertise. In his 1870 book "Among My Books," Lowell writes, "From the two centuries between 1400 and 1600 the indefatigable Ritson in his Bibliographia Poetica has made us a catalogue of some six hundred English poets, or, more properly, verse-makers. Ninety-nine in a hundred of them are mere names, most of them no more than shadows of names, some of them mere initials. Nor can it be said of them that their works have perished because they were written in an obsolete dialect; for it is the poem that keeps the language alive, and not the language that buoys up the poem. The revival of letters, as it is called, was at first the revival of ancient letters, which, while it made men pedants, could do very little toward making them poets, much less toward making them original writers....

        Das Neue Testament unsers Herren und Heilandes Jesu Christi, nach der Deutschen Uebersetzung D. Martin Luthers

      16mo. Original full calf with both metal clasps present and fully functional. 537pp, (5pp). Front and rear flyleaves are fairly modern crude replacements; text block moderately age toned throughout, with mild occasional foxing. A tight and attractive second printing of this noted "New Testament" issue from the press of the well-known Philadelphia printer (1752-1837); the printing office and home in which this was printed still stands today; it was built in 1730, purchased by Billmeyer in 1789 and is supposedly the site from which George Washington directed his Continental Army forces in the Battle of Germantown. When Billmeyer and his father-in-law set up their Lutheran press in the 1780s, they acquired the surviving equipment of the reknowned Philadelphia printer Christopher Saur Jr., whose press the British had destroyed in 1777. The two small leather straps on this copy are old but not original, but all the brass clasp parts are present and attractive -- and it still clicks firmly closed. Despite mild wear, an exceptional copy.

II and IV in paper, in fonts used for title-pages and for table of contents, and incidentally in other respects The two impressions perhaps indistinguishable" (Cross).Amelia, in contrast to Fielding's earlier books, Joseph Andrews and Tom Jones, is concerned with married tenderness and family happiness, the characters of Capt. Booth and his wife, Amelia, bearing comparison in temperament to Fielding and his wife, Charlotte, though the Fieldings' circumstances where no where near as dire: The book is "set in and against a London of almost unrelieved squalor, corruption and violence" (OCEL)."The book sold extremely well, but was attacked by many, led by Richardson and Smollett, and Fielding made alterations to later editions. It was his own favorite among all his books" (OCEL).Rothschild 853. Cross III, pp. 321-22. [Attributes: First Edition]

Juan and Ulloa were the two Spanish officers who accompanied (some say spied on) La Condamine, the French scientist/explorer, on his travels and experiments in Ecuador from 1730 to 1741. Both men were acting as expedition security officers (reporting to the Spanish King) as no foreigner (La Condamine was French and therefore suspect) had yet to travel in New Spain. After returning to Spain they compiled a scholarly explanation of their journey with La Condamine and published their own scientific findings.

        Elemens de l'Architecture navale , Traite pratique de la construction des vaisseaux

      Paris: Charles Antoine Jombert, 1752. Quarto, frontispiece, title-page vignette; a very good copy in contemporary mottled calf, front hinge worn. French naval construction. A beautiful first edition of this landmark in the development of naval architecture. This study distilled the French naval engineer Duhamel's years of experience into a well-organised manual, and was 'the first training manual for aspiring naval constructors ever produced' (James Pritchard, "From Shipwright to Naval Constructor", Technology and Culture, 28:1, p. 16). Duhamel was responsible for instilling a belief in best practice rather than simple routine, with the result that this is an important work of nascent engineering, concerned with obtaining the best results within the practical constraints of their trade. The mid-eighteenth century marked the zenith of early French naval construction, a period when the design of their warships was much envied and much copied (it is telling that the British regularly converted prizes into flagships). Especially in the second quarter of the eighteenth century, French shipwrights went through a period which saw many major innovations, and this study was the signature work. Duhamel had initially been involved with detailed studies of specific questions such as the prevention of dry rot, the manufacture of rope, or the conservation of water at sea. His pursuit of answers to such questions led him to England and Holland, as well as French arsenals and their India Company at Lorient. It was Duhamel who bucked the trend of increasingly theoretical works, and he was behind the founding of elementary schools for apprentice shipwrights, the first founded in Toulon in 1741 and another in Paris shortly after. His influence is attested to by the fact that the 'chief constructors of the three major naval dockyards during the 1750s were all former students' (Pritchard, "From Shipwright to Naval Constructor", p. 15). This is a beautifully produced work, with twenty-five engravings on twenty-three folding plates (not twenty-four, as commonly listed). The elegant engraved frontispiece and vignettes at the head of each chapter are by Nicolas Ozanne; a naval engineer himself, Ozanne worked at Brest and Paris, and his work led to him being given 'le brevet de dessinateur de la marine'.

L?OUVRAGE CONNUT DE NOMBREUSES EDITIONS ET FUT TRADUIT EN PLUSIEURS LANGUES. La première édition fut publiée en 1747, après que l?auteur se fût déjà fait connaître par ses Lettres sur Voltaire auprès de qui elle s?était réfugiée à Cirey. « The first edition of Lettres d?une Péruvienne appeared in 1747. Graffigny revised the novel for the 1752 edition, making numerous small changes and corrections throughout. Most important, she added two entirely new letters (29 and 34), reworked the original letter 28 and included part of it in a new letter 30. The 1747 and 1752 editions were the only two for which Graffigny herself was responsible » (J. De Jean, N. H. Miller). Les Lettres persanes de Montesquieu lui ont servi de modèle. Reprenant la veine exotique et le style épistolaire employés par Montesquieu dans ses Lettres persanes, Françoise de Graffigny dénonce les travers de la société sous la plume fictive de Zilia, « jeune Péruvienne exilée en France, qui écrit à son amant, Aza : arrivant dans un monde qui lui est inconnu, elle y a pénétré peu à peu, a réussi à en connaître les coutumes, a appris enfin à juger la société parisienne en dehors de l'hypocrisie traditionnelle. La délicatesse et la préciosité de certaines descriptions ont fait dire qu'elle a su adroitement ajouter au chef-d??uvre de Montesquieu une pincée de la Pamela de Richardson. Quoi qu'il en soit, L'OUVRAGE OBTINT UN VIF SUCCES AUPRES DE LA SOCIETE DE SON TEMPS, LAQUELLE SE RETROUVAIT TOUT ENTIERE DANS CE MELANGE D'IDEES CLAIRES, DE CRITIQUE SUBTILE ET DE VERVE ENDIABLEE ». (Laffont-Bompiani). L'auteur, amie de Rousseau, emprunte au philosophe le rêve d'un monde naturel mais qui serait pour elle incarné dans la femme. En féministe, elle dénonce en particulier dans la lettre 34 la douloureuse condition de la femme à son époque. Mme de Graffigny sait allier à la satire des m?urs (on a prétendu que les réformes économiques et sociales de Turgot s?en seraient inspirées), le sens le plus délicat et le plus exquis des convenances. PRECIEUX ET BEL EXEMPLAIRE, L?UN DES RARES IMPRIME SUR GRAND PAPIER FORT DE HOLLANDE, IMMENSE DE MARGES, CONSERVE DANS SA RELIURE EN MAROQUIN DE L?EPOQUE AUX ARMES DU MARQUIS DE PAULMY.

        The Principles of Natural Law. WITH The Principles of Politick Law

      London: Printed for J. Nourse, 1752. London: Printed for J. Nourse, 1752. First editions. Together, two volumes. Octavo, period­style full red morocco with elaborately gilt decorated spine and boards, black morocco spine label, raised bands, marbled endpapers. Interiors generally fresh, small bit of marginal wormholing not affecting text (Natural Law). Light occasional early marginalia (Politic).& & First editions in English of Burlamaqui&#39;;s Principles of Natural Law and his Principles of Politic Law, two seminal works with a profound influence on America&#39;;s Founders, in particular on Alexander Hamilton and on Thomas Jefferson&#39;;s use of "pursuit of happiness" in the Declaration of Independence. & & "Burlamaqui formulated the principles of popular sovereignty, of delegated power, of a constitution as fundamental law, of a personal and functional separation of powers into three independent departments... and finally, he provided for an institutional guardian of the fundamental law" (Bassani, 178­9). Scholars have noted that Jefferson&#39;;s concept of the "pursuit of happiness" in the Declaration of Independence can be chiefly traced to Burlamaqui&#39;;s Principles of Natural Law, where he refines a theory of ideal happiness that is linked to reason and the social contract, saying that "if it be true that man does nothing but with a view of happiness, &lsquo;tis no less certain that reason is the only way he has to attain it" (49). In 1769, as Jefferson&#39;;s interests turned increasingly toward political history, he "ordered from London a list of 14 books, every one of them dealing with theories of government... [Of these] the books that were to be at the core of Jefferson&#39;;s studies of government were John Locke&#39;;s Two Treatises, Burlamaqui&#39;;s Natural Law" and several others (Randall, 206). "In pamphlet after pamphlet the American writers cited Locke on natural rights... [and] Burlamaqui and Vattel on the laws of nature and of nations, and on the principles of civil government." Of these, "Locke, Montesquieu, Vattel, Beccaria, Burlamaqui, Voltaire, or even Rousseau" were never disputed and consistently treated as authoritative. Alexander Hamilton, for example, "seeking to score points against his venerable antagonist Samuel Seabury, recommended with arch condescension that his adversary get himself at the first opportunity to some of the writings of... Burlamaqui to discover the true principles of politics" (Bailyn, 27­8). & & In his profound influence on the Founding Fathers, "Burlamaqui is a writer of the most humanely moral principles, and his works are deservedly held in high esteem" (Marvin, 162). Initially published in French in 1747, Principles of Natural Law first appeared in English in 1748. Its sequel "Principes du droit politique" (Principles of Politic Law) was first published posthumously in French in 1751. This set brings together the first separate editions in English of each work. With woodcut ornamental initials, head and tailpieces. Sweet & Maxwell I:592. See Graesse I:576 Sowerby 1408­9.

      1752. With Two Important Essays on International Law Bynkershoek, Cornelius van [1673-1743]. Opera Minora, Olim Separatim, Nunc Conjunctim Edita. Recensuit et Nonnulla Addidit Auctor. Indicem Operum Exhibet Pagina, Quae Generalem Praefationem Excipit. Leiden: Apud Samuelam Luchtmans et Filios, 1752. [xvi], 571, [23] pp. Quarto (8" x 6"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine, small shelf label to foot of spine. Some shelfwear and light soiling, boards slightly bowed. Title page with copperplate vignette printed in red and black, woodcut initials. Interior notably fresh. A handsome copy of an important title. * Second, and final, edition. (The first edition was reissued in 1744.) Bynkershoek was a Dutch jurist who founded the positive school of international law, which held that usage and practice were more important than deductions drawn from natural law. He was also the first to propose the "three-mile limit" rule, which states that a nation may claim sovereignty over territorial waters to a distance of three miles from shore. Respected during his lifetime, his works are still consulted today. This collection of "minor works" actually contains two of his most important essays: "Dissertation de Domino Maris (Dissertation on the Sovereignty of the Sea)" and "De Foro Legatorum, Tam in Causa Civili, Quam Criminali (On the Jurisdiction Over Ambassadors in Both Civil and Criminal Cases)." The other five essays address aspects of Roman and Dutch law. Dekkers, Bibliotheca Belgica Juridica 15 (15)..

      Madrid, 1752. News of the Philippines and Tonkin; a copy enhanced with 8 unknown plates made in Manila in the 18th century, representing the martyrs. 1752. Madrid. Imprenta de Domingo Fernandez de Arrojo. In 8vo (206 mm x 149 mm). 1 [blank] + 16 ff. + 202 + 7 ff. +1 [blank] + 8 plates. Contemporary vellum restored, spine lettered in ink. A fine copy, with oxidation spots to few leaves; 8 plates tipped on heavy paper interleaved in the text.First edition. A special copy, added with plates made in Manila, of an already rare work on the martyrs of Tonkin and the Philippines: Navamuel explains the progress the missionary activity of the Ordo Predicatorum (Dominican Order) in the East Indies, mainly in the Philippines and Vietnam. The arguments are given largely through the lives, work and martyrdom of Fray Saint Mateo Alonso de Leciniana and Fray Saint Francisco Gil de Federic under the reign of Trinh Doanh.Saint Leciniana (1702 ? Tonkin 1745) entered the Dominican Convent of Segovia, where he resided until sent to the School of Santo Tomas (Manila), and later Tonkin; in the last place he learned the native?s tongue and began preaching; after being denounced, he was wounded and captured, sent to Nam-dinh and then Hanoi, imprisoned and trialed, sentenced to death and executed, for not wanting to step on the cross. Saint Federic (1702 ? Tonkin 1745), also of Spanish birth, asked to be allowed to travel and work in the Indies. He was sent to Luzon, were he preached to the native people of Bataan and Pangasinan, also learning their tongue; suffered a similar fait than the former, only jailed for 8 years, suffering torture and humiliation, refused being rescued by ransom, and died after being sentenced to death. They met in jail, and died the same day, after the commutation of their death penalty was revoked.The interleaved engraved plates are remarkably rare; Lorenzo Atlas engraved them after drawings of Father Joseph Azcarate. We have been unable to locate them bibliographically except for an obscure note, nor could we trace any copy having appeared onto the market. Medina in his introduction to the seminal "La imprenta en Manila" (1896), included a short "biography" of the engravers of Manila; in it, he praises Lorenzo Atlas "Figura con cierto brillo relativo como artista por sus laminas del glorioso martiorio de los franciscanos en el Japon" (pp. XLIX); Atlas was also responsible for full page plate of the martyrdom of the Saints at Japan, as well as the plate in Murillo Velarde?s work. One of the plates represents Saint Leciniana, and mentions his martyrdom in Tonkin. The artist for most is Fray Joseph Azcarate of whom the only reference is actually a mention of his owning of 5 copper plates representing the Dominican martyrs of China, probably mistakenly referring to the martyrs of Tonkin. They comprise, amongst others:1- A laudatory poem on Charles III (signed "Manilensis. Anno 1770."2- Fray Peter M. Sanz, depicted with a sword through his head, signed by Fray Joseph Azcarate, and engraved by L.[Lorenzo or Laureano] Atlas "P. F. Jph Azcarate O. P. delin. L. Atlas Indus Mani."3- "Ioachim Royo Ordo Praed. [Praediatorum]... MDCCXLVII", signed by Fray Joseph Azcarate, and engraved by L.[Lorenzo or Laureano] Atlas "P. F. Jph Azcarate O. P. delin. L. Atlas Indus Manil."4- "Francisci Diaz Ordo Praed. [Praediatorum]... MDCCXLVIII" signed by Fray Joseph Azcarate, and engraved by L.[Lorenzo or Laureano] Atlas "P. F. Jph Azcarate O. P. delin. L. Atlas Indus Manil."5- "Fray Matthei Ildephonsi Linziniana Ordo Praed. [Praediatorum]... qui pro Christi fide in TunKino Regno degollatus est. an Dni MDCCXLV" signed by Dominica Cruce, and engraved by L.[Lorenzo or Laureano] Atlas "Dominica Cruce delin. L. Atlas Ind Manilensis."6- "Fr. Franc. Serrano Ordo P. [Praediatorum]... Prov. TonKien... MDCCXLVIII" signed by Fray Joseph Azcarate, and engraved by L.[Lorenzo or Laureano] Atlas "P. F. Jph Azcarate O. P. delin. L. Atlas Indus Manil."Provenance: first free endpaper with ownership inscription "Señor Don Fran.co Bonilla".Palau, 187965. Medina, Manila (pp. XLIX).
