Catholic Church. Pope (1621?1623; Gregory XV).
Broadside, begins: Beatificatio. Servi dei fratris Petri de Alcantara Ordinis Minorvm Regvlaris obseruantiae Discalceatorum, fundatoris Prouinciae Sancti Iosephi in regno Castellae. Gregorivs PP. XV. ad perpetvam rei memoriam.
Lima: Geronymo de Contreras, 1623. Imperial folio (42,5 x 30.5 cm, 16.75" x 11.75"). [1] p. Mystic, correspondent of Luis de Granada and Teresa of Ávila, author of Tratado de la oracio?n y meditacio?n, and patron saint of Brazil — and of night watchmen! — Pedro de Alcantara was beatified on 18 April 1622 and canonized 28 April 1669. Pope Gregory XV issued a brief at Rome on 18 April 1622 (Romae: Ex Typographiae Reu. Camerae Apostolicae, 1622) announcing the beatification. This was reprinted in Lima in 1623 by Peru's third printer, Jerónimo de Conteras, with a nice 5-line initial "I." Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and CCPBE locate => no reported copies of this New World "edition" and Medina only knew of the broadside from the copy then in the Peruvian National Library. Medina, Lima, 106. Some insect damage with partial loss of about 14 letters (not impairing ability to read the text); some tears in margins (not into text area). Writing in iron gall ink on verso has bled through to recto. => A rare and interesting example of Contreras' job printing.
