PARABIEN AL REY D. FELIPE IIII. N.S. QUE DA LA CABEÇA DEL REYNO DEL PIRU
[Madrid, 1621. Folio. Loose gatherings. Outermost gathering neatly reinforced with tissue along spine and fore edges. Discreet tissue repairs to fore edge of other leaves. Clean and fresh. Very good. Memorial to the King of Spain written by Juan Ortiz de Cervantes, Procurador General, advocating for the rights of encomendero holders in Peru. Ortiz de Cervantes points out the need to treat the native population more gently - not from any moral stance, but because the harsh labor draft for the Potosi mines was killing so many Indians that it was threatening the general economy of the province, and thus the profits of the encomenderos. He also argues that Peru's creole elite should be appointed to high offices based on their merits. Date and imprint suggested by EUROPEAN AMERICANA. Only two copies in OCLC, at the John Carter Brown Library and the British Library.
