RISTRETTO DELLO STATO DELLA DIOCESI DI CANARIA
[Lanzarote Island]. March 26, 1774 [i.e. Rome, mid- 1700s].. 28pp. manuscript. Folding table. Folio. Dbd. About fine. From the libraries of Frederick North, 5th Earl of Guilford, and Sir Thomas Phillipps. This manuscript offers a detailed description, both social and physical, of the Canary Islands in 1744, as composed by the bishop of the islands. Guillen discusses the population; the convents of the various orders, their number and adherents; the threat of invasion by pirates, Moors, Turks, and British corsairs; and the quality of wines. The folding chart summarizes statistics for 1633 to 1642, broken down by religion, occupation, and gender. An extensive mid-18th-century examination of the islands by a keen observer.
