CORONICA MORALIZADA DEL ORDEN DE SAN AUGUSTIN EN EL PERU, CON SUCESOS EGENPLARES VISTOS EN ESTA MONARQUIA
Barcelona, 1638. Folio. Contemporary vellum, calf spine with leather label. Engraved titlepage trimmed and mounted; letterpress titlepage heavily worn and repaired in similar fashion. Moderate to heavy toning, dampstaining, and soiling. Last few leaves heavily wormed, affecting some text. Small tear to edge of plate; trimmed closely and mounted. About good. First edition of this Peruvian Chronicle, one of the rarest referring to the history of Peru. It deals with the creation of the different churches and religious houses in Peru, but it also describes meticulously the most important historical events up to 1638. Born in Chuquisaca (1584), Antonio de la Calancha was an Augustinian religious man who died in Lima (1654). Our copy has the rare historiated frontispiece and the extraordinary plate representing the martyrdom of Father Diego Ortiz in Vilcabamba, engraved by Pierre de Jode. Few complete copies have survived. Leclerc's copy did not have the engraving. One of the great American chronicles.
