The Spanish Cardinal and Statesman Bernardin de Carvajal went to Rome about 
the middle of the year 1493 in order to assure the Pope of the submission of the King of 
Spain which he did with the a-bore apeeoh (one of the earliest jirinted diplomatic speeches) 
on the 19th of June, 1493. The speech refers to all. the political at.d social events which had 
taken place till 1492 under Ferdinand II. and Isa.bella,, specially referring to the Union of 
thfi Sipanish Monarchy amd the jfina.1 destruction of the ascendancy of the Moors under 
lioabdil througih the fall of Grajiada in 1492. 

On page 6 verso, lines 16 and following-, we read the following lines referring to the 
discovery of America which is the first mention of the Discovery of America in print 

(with the exception of the Columibus letter of May, 1493). 

" Subegit quoq^ue bub eis xps fortunatas insulas quarum fertilitatem miraibilem esse 
constat. Oudit et nuper alias incognitas versus Indos quae maxime ao plene oib' mundi 
preciosis existimantur, et xpor per regies interniintios brevi pariturae creduntur." 

(Translation). — And Christ placed under their rule the Fortunate Islands, the fer- 
tility of which has been ascertained to be wonderful. And he has lately disclosed .some other 
unknown omes towards the Indies which may be considered among the most precious things 
on earth; and it is believed that they will be gained over to Clvrist by the emissaries of the 

This mention was printed a bare four months after Columbus' return from his 
first voyage of discovery. He had landed on 4th of March, 1493, at Lisbon. 

Harrisse in his " Notes on Columbus " (Cambridge, 1865), p. 136, writing of the abwve 
book, says : " Another (allusion) of a very early date which may have preceded even Leander 
de Cosco's very poor Latin translation of the Admiral's letter, since it is dated June 19th, 
1493, is to be fpund in a small quarto of 8 leaves, issued without date or name of iwinter." 

The Times Literary Supplement of Septem'ber 5, 1918, has an article on this raire 
little volume, and ooncludes^ as follows: — 

" When iit 13 recollected that the famous letter of Columbus announcing his 
discoveries was dated 3 Kal., May, 1493 (really April 29), and' that it is certain that a 
longer time separated the writing and printing of that letter than wK>uid intervene 
between the delivery and printing of CaTvajal's oration, it becomes doubtful whether 
more than a very few days intervened between the publioatioai of the first printed 
document relating to America, the letter of Columbus, and the oration orf Carvajal, in 
whioh that discovery was officially announced to the Church and the world." 

Only 8 copies are known of this book, nearly all of which are in Public Libraries.

This passage «tates that the King oi Portugal, Juan II., s&nt, in 1483, James Canus, 
a native of Portugal, and Martin Behaim ot Nuremberg, with some galleys to Ethiopia; that 
they went to the Southern Sea, nea^r the coast, and, after crossing the line, reached the New 
World, where, when they happened to look towards the, their shadow, at noon, ajpipeared 
on the right; that in that region they discovered lands, heretofore unknown, which had not 
been searched after by any people for many years, except the Genoese, and that in Vain; 
finally, that after a navigation of twenty-six months they returned to Portugal ; and in 
proof of their discovery brought pepper and grana paradisi.

* * * The first thirty pages in dialogue form is a drama on the siege and capture of 
<Jranada from the Moors by I'erdinand. It was written by Verardus and acted at Home 
in 1492. 

The letter of Ck>lumibus begins as follows : " De insulis iniiper inventis. Epistola 
Christoferi Codom (cui etas nostra mnltum debet; de insulis in Mari Indico nu5>6r inventis 
ad quas perquirendas octavo antea mense auspiciis et aere invictissimi Fernandi Hispaniarum 
Kegis missus fuerat) ad magnificum dominum Eaphaalem Sanxis ejusdem Regis Thesaijrar- 
ium missa quam nobilis ac litteratus rir Aliander de Cosoo ab Hispano ideomate in latiaum 
convertit." As is well known two copies of the original epistle were written by Columbus 
in Spanish, one addressed to Luis de Santangel, a. secretary to King Ferdinand, and the other 
to Gabriel (misprinted Eaipliael) Sanxis, treasuirer of Aragon; both piractioally identical in 
ether resipeots. The Sanxis copy was Iran^ated into Latin in Naiples 29 A'pnil, 1493, by 
Aliander de Cosco, and this is the version now being described, and which was the only 
original one known prior to the discovery in recent years of the original Spanish text. 

This is the famous " Second Letter of Columbus," and is the second edition of tihe 
Columbus Letter with a colophon and a definite date, but the first edition of Verardus with 
the Columbus letter containing the account of the Admiral's first voyage. 

The woodcuts are as follows : — 

(1) On title-page full length portrait of King Ferdinand of Spain, crowned, dressed 
in fuU airmour holding the Escutcheon of Castile and Leon in his right hand, and that 
of Granada in his left, aJid the words " Fernandus. Rex Hyspanie." 

(2) Colum.bus and another European in a boat landing on the shores on the New 
World offering a goblet to the timid unclothed natives, some of whom are advancing, 
while others are running away; at to{p of the wood'cut the words " Insula Hyspana." A 
oaravel in the foreground. 

(3) A caravel approaching the islands of Ferdinand, Isabella. Hispania. S. Salvator 
and Conception (so inscribed). A kind of bird's eye view map. 

(4) A town, land fort in process of construction by the seaside on Hispania, and 
the wOirds " Insulla Hysipana " (San Domingo). 

(5) Single Escutcheon of Castile and Leon. 

(6) A fine fullnpage wcodeut of Coflunibus' Admiral's ship, showing Columbus' cabin 
on the stern, in full sail, the words above being " Oceanica Classis." 

The reason of these two distinct works bein? issued together is obvious from the 
title-page. By them is commemorated the memorable year 1492, in which happened two 
events of the greatest iniTiortance to Spain, viz., the destruction of the Moorish power and the 
discoveo'T of the New World. 

The letter begins (translation) : — 

" Having now acconiipUshed the undertaking upon which I set out, I know that 
it will be agreeable to you to be informed of all I have discovered in my voyage. On 
the 33rd day after I !left Cadiz I reached the Indian Ocean, where I found many i-^Iands 
peopled by innumeTaible inhabitants; of all which I took possession without resistance. 
The islands abound in the finest variety of trees, so lofty that they seem to reach the 
stars. These peonle are of a verv timid d^'^«i^ion, an uncommonly simple, honest 
people, liberal in bestowing what they possess." Etc.

snor. finibus videatur : nisi etiami novas provinclas, novia Tegna, novas insulas et quasi novos

(Eng'lisih translation) : — 

" He (the King) lias . merited well of the Church in other ways. Firstly, he sent 
expeditions to Ethioipia: Secondly, at that same time ten islands in the Atlantic Ocean 
which were hardly even known to Geographers were foiund by onr countrymen and in aJl 
of them Portugnese colonies "were founded to promote the Christian faith. It seems to me 
that Kin's; Alfonsus was mot satisfied with promoting! the Christian religion ia his oivn 
domiinions. He had to add new provinces, new kingdoms, new islands, and may I say it 
NEW AND UNKNOWN WORLDS to the name of CJiTist and the Church of Eome." 

Pope Innocent VUI. died in July, 14.92, eight months .before it was known in Europe 
that Columbus had dlisoo\'ered the New W^orld, consequently the paragraph in question 
could not have been in the Oration, as first delivered by Valasou.?, but must have been en 
interpolation when printed in 1494, which wias only a, few months after Columbus' return, 
and when all Europe wa.s excited over his great d.isoovery. At that time tlie rival claims of 
Spain aiid Portugal was causing a great controversy as to nhethev the honour was due to 
Columbus or to the Portuguese Navigator Behaim, .and Ixjth countries wove consequently 
claiming from the Pope the pos.session of the New World, and which the Pope eventually 
divided between Spain and Portugal. It is therefore likely that fcliis pa.ragr«,ph was pur- 
posely inserted into the printed ORATION to claim for Portugal, the discoveries in contra- 
distinction to Spain.

On verso of A.5 bcoxirs the passage in question : — 

Nunc veto &: hcf partes funt latius luftrat*/ 8C

<]uehtibus audietur)inucnca efhqua non video cur

Translation: — " Now however those parts are moirc. widely investigated, and another 
quarter has been discovered by Ameiions Vespnoius (as will bei heard in the sequel), and I 
do not see how any one can lawfully forbid that it should be named, after its sagacious and 
iJigenious discoverer, Amerigo (as it were Amerioo's land), or America.." 

On the Obveirse of B.iri. it is said that " the greatest part of thel still unknown land 
lately discovered by Ajnericus Vespucius is inhabitable," and on the obverse of C.I. " the 
fourth part of the world, which since Amerieus disoo%'ered it, may be called Amerige (as it 
were the land of AmericAis) or America, is in the sixth climate." 

WALDESHEMULLEE'S COSMOGRAPHTA forms the fir,st part of the hook. The 
second half contains an Account of the four Voyages of Amerigo Vespucci. 

" But for this little work the Western Hemisiphere might have been called " The 
Land of the Holy Cross," or " Atlantis," or " HeHperides," or " Iberica," or " Columbia," 
or " New India," or " The Indies," as it is designated officially in Spain tQ this day. The 
idea of calling the newly discovered wmrld America originated with the compiler of the 
work before ue, one Martin Waltzmiiller or Waldseeimiiller, a. native of Freiburg, who held 
a profess6rshiipi in the gymnasium of St. Di^, in Lorraine (and not in I,ower Hungary, a.s 
.Navarrete supposed). Following the custom of the scholaira of days, he grecized his 
name into Hylacomylus, under which he is generally Icnown. The popularity of Hylacomy- 
lus' Cosmographia was such in Central Europe that his proposition was immediately acted 
upon. As a consequence, we find in Gaultier Ludd's Slpeculum Orbis, written in the same 
year, the credit of having dirscovered the Western Hemisphere ascribed solely to Vespuceius, 
while an anonymous " Globus muntti," published by the same printer in 1509 boldly calls 
the new World " America," which figures under this name for the first time in maps eight or 
_ten years after Vespuocius had been in his then honoured girave. Well may we say with 
Humlboldt that; " c'est un honime obscur, qui allait manger du raisin en Lorraine, qui a 
invents le nom d'Am^rique." "

The Maip forms an' epoch in the development of cartography, for iu addition to its 
Amoiican features, it is : — 

(1) The first printed mapi of tlio world on which the discoveries of the Portugnese 
along the Coasts of Africa are laid down. 

(2) First map published in print on v/hich India is drawn as a triangular 
peninsula projecting from the south coast of Asia. 

(3) First printed muip on which the delineation of the interior and eastern parts 
of Asia is no longer based exclusively on the material collected bj' MariliUvS! of Tyre and 
Ptolemy more than a millenium previously. 

(4) First printed maip on which, in conformity with the drawings on the porto- 
Sanos, a tolera.bly correct direction is given to the Northern Coast of Africa. 

(5) First mnip published in print, which, following a correction made in the 
portolanos since the beginning of thei 14th century, leaves out that excessive projection 
toward the East, which characterizes Ptolemy's map of the northern part of Scotland. 

(6) Greenland is here for the first time drawn without being connected with 
Europe W "■ 'vasi polar continent. The legends on the map are . . of a very 
high interest and form a more important contribution to the history of geography than 
many a bulky volume.

paid to the great geographical discoveries of the p'rpceding years. (This map) " CONTAINS 
CONTINENT, under the names of " Regalis Domus " . . . . and " Terra Laboratorus." 

It represents the New World in an extremely curious way. Brazil, a large tract, js 
called! Terra Sanotae Crucis, and the cartographer evinces acquaintance with the results of 
Columbus' thiTd voyage, and Vespucci's second and third voyagevs. The continuity is broifcen 
by the mairgin in consequence of the peculiar plan of the map, so that Cuba and Hispaniola 
appear next above, near their proper places; and far beyond them, at the same degree of 
latitude as Ireland, an unfinished shore bearing the words " Regalis Domus," indicates the 
northern continent, while Labrador (Terra Laboratorus^ is represented as au island ofl 
CORTE REAL. Greenland (EngroneJAt) is drawn as a peninsula of north-west Europe. 
Coming nearer home, it is romarkaible that in this book, Scotland' is properly drawn 
for the first time as forming a northern extension of England. It is also remaikable for 
the manner in which the names are printed on the map, this having been done by types 
after the woodcut had been worked off. This is the fir-st instance in which such a method 
of ofperation was ever adopted.

The estimatioa in •which Peter Martyr was held as an historian is shown by the 
fact that in a jwriod of a hundred years his works were piibUshed in Spain, Italy, France 
and England. An Italian by birth, he went in 14S7 to the Court of Ferdinand and 
Isabella. He served in their armies during two campaigns, was ordained a prieat afterwards, 
and became tutor to their children. He was at one time an ambassador, and later on a 
Privy Counsellor. Few men have had a wider range of occupation and experience. Soldier, 
schoolmaster, ambassador, statesman, priesit, historian, and a gossiping man of letters, 
he touched humanity at nearly every point. He delighted in the society of great men 
and was on the most frank and intimate terms with them. To use an expression of his 
own, he fed with his learning the studious yoTjth of Spain. He was the contemporary of 
Columbus and Vesipucius, and was the fi^rst to publish a popular account of the results 
of theix voyages and of the peculiarities of the natives of the New World. This, the first 
of his historical writinsfs, contains only the first decade, which was republished, together 
with the second and third at Alcala, in 1516. Its importance is equalled by its rarity. 
Harrisse cites but one copy in U.S. of America. It is deserving, in every respect,' of the 
regard of scholajrs and bibiophiles. As the colophon states, it was printed " with the 
greatest oare." It contains the chart which is usually wanting, and which is remarkably 
correct for the period. Nothing equal to it appeared for a long time after.

Twenty of the Maps are here given for the first time. On five of theee new Maps 
the discoveries of the Spaniards and Portuguese during the preceding century are represemted. 

Harrisse writes as foHows regarding this volume : — 

" The merit ofl this edition of Ptolemy^s Gecgraiphia is gireat, for it not only corrects 
Angelo's translation by means of a. Greek manuscript until then unknown, but it contains 
twenty new maps; among which the reader will notice the first, bearing the title of: 
senting on the left of the reader a promotory, with five inscriptions, and two islands (viz: 
"Isabella and Spagnolla"); and the second map, which is headed: TABULA TEERE NOVE. 
The latter is very full, corCsidering the times, as it shows a prolongation of the coast 
from a certain " Eio de -canaor " to a cape " del mar usiano." There are not less than 
sixty mames along the coast, besides the inscription afterwards so frequently reprinted: 


This inscription is on the section which corresponds to what we now call Yucatan, and 
is followed by the words TBEliA INCOGNITA. 

These two maps acquire importance from the following- lines, which we extract from 
the preface on the verso of the second title-page : 

chaeta autem marina quam hydrographiam vocant per ADMIRALEM 
quondam sibeenassimi, portugalie regis stseddnandff ceteros deniqub 


This passage has doubtless prompted the opinion that the first of the two maps 
above described had been depicted by Columbus hinuseU ."

This volume contains in the ard Decade, 6th Book, the Eariiest Printed Account 
of the Discovery of North America by Sebastian Cabot. 

The edition of the first decfide of Peter Martyr, x>rinted at Seville in 1511, had 
been published, as it se«ms, contrary to his wishes, and contained only the first nine books 
of the firsit decade. We know that Pope Leo X. was so charmed with Peter Ma.Ttyc's Decade 
that he iread it to his sister and to the cardinals " after supper, serena fronte, and to 
satiety, until late in the night," and are not surprised, therefore, to learn that this 
enlightened Pope instructed Bottrisjari, his Ambassador to the Court of Spain, to request 
the interesting annalist to continue his Ooeanios. It is in consequenice of this request that 
the second decade was written, Decemiber 14th, 1514, and the third, in March, 1515. The 
present copy is this edition : the earliest that contains the first three decades. 

The title page is very interesting, translated it reads : — 

" John Eufus of Forli, Archbishop of Cosenza, apostolic legate, to the reader, touching 
the new world. Accept these exquisite volumes concerning the new world, and learn, O 
reader ! of the great treasures of the Oteean. The greatest gratitude is due to the pilot, 
who carriest unknown nations and birds from the new world. Great thanks are also due to 
our author, who shows all those kingdomis in their places. Header, stop, read what is 
oontajned in this short work, inscribed to different princes, and to Pope Leo X. Here you 
will see many new things of the Ocean, great countries, vast seas ; you iwill learn of 
hitherto unknown languages, and of golden ages and of nations free from the corrupting 
influence of money; of the torrid zone, fertile in precious stones and gold, respect the 
venerable antiquity." 

And the Colophon : — 

" By the care and industry of the celebrated master Anthony of Nebris, these 
three decades of the historian and prothonotary, Peter Martyr, were printed in the ofBce 
-of Arnold William in the celebrated city, which is commonly called Alcala. Finished, 
Novembef 9th, 1516."

"The first book printed in Spanish relating to America; unknown to Kobertsor.. 
Enciso having' gained a considerable sum in St. Domingo by practicing law, was induced 
by Ojeda to join him in an expedition of discovery and conquest to the continent of 
America. After suSering groat hardships and hairbreadth escapes, which are related by 
Herrera, he returned to Spain, and published this work for the instruction of Charles V. 
The account of America is principally from his own observations." 

" We must add that Martin Fernandez de Enciso first came to the New World with 
Rodriges de Bastidas, was Alguazil Mayor of the Golden Castil, and the owner of thp 
vesseJ as well as the planner of the exiiedition in whicli Vasco Nunez de Balboa acquired 
so much fame. A great hydrographer and explorer, his work is invaluable for the early 
geographical history of this continent."

The Tracts in English are as follows: — 

(I.) A brief account of the Destruction of the Indies: Collected by the Bishop Don 
BAEtlHOLOMEW DE LAS CASAS, Friar of the Order of Saint Dominic. 

(II.) Epitome of a letter on the same subject. 

(III.) Among the remedies which Friar Don Bartholomew de Las Casas Bishop 
•of the Eoyal City of XDhiaipa reported by order of ihe Emperor, the Kin®, our Lord, in 
the meetings -wrhich his Majesty ordered to be held by the prelates and learned men and 
grandees of Valladolid, in the year, one thousand five hundred and forty two, for the refor- 
mation of the Indies; the eighth in order is the i'ollowiiig', wherein twenty reasons aro 
assigned, hy which it is proved that the Indians should not be given to the Spaniards, 
neither in commission, noir in fieif, nor in vaissalage, nor in aaiy other 'Wiay whatsoever, if His 
Majesty according- to his desire would free them from the tyranny and perdition which 
■they suffer; as from the mouth of the dragons, and that they may not totally consume and 
kill them, and devastate that world of its' so infinite natural inhabitants, with whom it M-as, 
and we saw it, peopled. 

(IV.) Here are contained thirty most lawful propositions, in which are summarily 
and succinctly treated many things appertaining to the right which the church and the 
Christian princes have, or may have, over the infidels of whatever kind they may Ibe. Chiefly 
the true and strongest foundation is assigned on which is based and supported the title and 
supreme and universal lordship which the kings of Castile and Leon hold over the world 
of what we call the West Indies. By the which they are constituted universal lords Qiuid 
emperors in them, ower many kings. Other most remarkable thing's are also pointed out 
relative to the transaction which ha.* takfn place in that wor'Id, audi worthy to te seen, and 

(V.) Here is contained a dispute or controversy hetneen the Bishop Triar Bartholomew 
de Las Casas, formerly Bishop of the royal city of Chiapa, which is in the Indies, 
a part of New Spain, and the Doctor Gines de Sepulreda, Chronicler to the Emperor our 
Lard, in which the Doctor contended that the conquests of the Indies against the Indians 
wore lawful, and the Bishop on the contrary defended and affirmed them to liave been and 
"to be impossible to be so, but tyrannical, unjust, and iniquitous. Which question was 
exajnined and disputed in the presence of many learned theologians and j urists in a meeting 
which his Majesty ordered to be held in the year one thousand five hundred and fifty in the 
City of Valladolid. 

(VI.) This is a treatise which the Bishop of the Royal City of Chiapa, Friar Don 
Bartholomew de Las Casas composed by commission of the Royal Council of the Indies 
concerning the enslaving" of the natives. 

(VII.) Here are contained some devices and rules for the confe'ssors who have heard 
the confessions of the Spaniards who have or have had the charge of the Indians of the 
Indies of the Ocean Sea. 

(VIII.) Certain principles from which we to proceed in disputation to the mani- 
testation and defence of the jurisdiction of the Indians. 

(IX.) Treatise shewing the rights of the Kings of Spain over the Indies.

generally lacking. 

The First Pairh relates to tbe eubj ugation of Peru. The second .part gives an account 
of the Conqijest of Mexico. 

This is a great historical Tvork, indispensable to the student of Spanish affairs in 
America after the Conquest. The dedication to Charles V. begins with these remarkable 
words : " The greatest event which has h.api)cned since the creation of the world (leaving 
aside the incarnation and death of Him who created it) is the discovery of the Indies." 

It affords us the most authentic views of the primitive condition of the Indians 
before tyranny had crushed, or civilization had corrupted them. 

GOMAEA prefixes a curious address to intending translators, wa.rning them to be 
accurate and to measure the full significance of the pregnant Sipanish phrases, also to pay 
special attention to proiper names. He further declares that h© is writing the boot in 
Latin, so that the translators may take no trouble in that language. His Latin version never 

ONLY IN ONE OR TWO COPIES. The Author in his address, " a los Impresores," by 
■whom he meant futuire reprinters of his work, begged them to omit nothing which he 
had taken care to insert in this original edition, maiormente las tablas de la tierra. It was 
this warning which induced Bellero in Antwerp to issue u. small Traca de la Tierra with 
his edition of 1554. The difference between Bellero's map and Gomara's proves that the 
Spanish Government had effectually su^ppresoed the latter, and that the Antwerp publisher 
was obliged to have a new design prp^pared which is in some respects decidedly inferior 
to the original in geographical accuracy. (See No. 47.) 

A fine copy, with only one or two slight defects, namely: The ton blank margin of 
title and outer margin of three leaves restored. Some verv slight facsimiling to the extreme 
bottom of the two maps, aad their outer margins extended.

which led him to write their, history. The works he produced, hesides one or two of less 
consequence, were, first, his " History of the Indies," which, after the Spanish faslhioin, 
begins with the creation of the world, and ends with the gloTies of Sipain, though it is 
chiefly devoted to Columbus and the discovery and conquest of Peru; and, second, his 
" Chronicle of New Spain," which is the History and Life off Cortes. As the earliest records 
that were puiblished concerning affairs which already stirredi the whole of Christendom, these 
works had, at once, a great suoeesB.

Lopez, as stated on the title page, was a member of the Royal Council of the Indies,, 
and in his glosses are some interesting essays and notes on the New Wor^d, as: — 

" Indis Maris Oceani an juste bellum moveatur " 

(whether it is right to make war on the Indians, of the Oceanic nea). 

" Indi traseuntes ad oalidas r^ioues moriutur cet plurimu." 
(Indians crossing fronv cold to hot regions generally die). 

The first of these extends to 30 full columns, and he writes, that it is in the interest 
of the Pope and the Catholic Church, the Iting of Spain and the American Indians them»- 
selves that Spain should send Missionaries acoompariied with large armed forces to occupy- 
their territories. 

The Ancient Law of Spain, the New Testament, Thomas Aquinas, Cardinal Thomas 
De Vio, and all the Scholastic Philosophers, are cited to support this contention.

lands around the River and Gulf of St. Laurence. Newfoundland has not yet become an 
istead, the straits of Belle-isle being still unknown, and only a deep inlet divides it from 
Labiador. The Eiver Saguenay is shown ab its entry into the St. Laurence, which is a 
rencarkable feature in so early a map.

noble family, and as a youth served as Page to the King. He was with the Court at Granada 
when the King received Columbusi on his return, in 1493. .Ini 1512.he was appointed Secretary 
to Gonsalus de Cordovo, but soon after determined to travel to the New Lands and joined 
the -expedition of Pedrarias d'Avila. In America he occupied several important offices, and 
was successively Governor of the Province of Cartagena and of Darien, Inspector of the Gofd 
Mines, and finally was named Chronicler General of the Indies, in 1532. 

He resided in America nearly 34 years, dnring which time he traversed the Atlantic 
12 times, chiefly on missions to lay the grievances of the colonies before the Spanish Coort. 
He returned to Spain fox the last time in 1556, and died at Valladolid in 1557. 

His intimate personal knowledge of men and events makes his history interesting 
and of the greatest importance.

" A Welcome home to Master Martin Frobusher, and all those Gentlemen and Souldiers, 
that have bene with him this last journey, in the Countrey called (Meia incognita) whiche 
welcome was written since this Booke was put to the Printing, am,d joyned to the same Booke, 
for a true testimony of Churchyardes good will, for the furtherance of Mayster Frobushers 

This is a most important book, both on account of it being an excessively rare 
Elizabethan volume of Poetry, and also on account of the tour leaves at end welcoming home 
Frobisher from his Famous Voyage to the Northern Parts of America, when he discovered 
Frobisher Bay and the Straits which now carry Hudson's name. 

" Frobisher sailed from Harwich on 31 May with a fleet of fifteen vessels, in three divi- 
sions, headed by the Aid, Judith, and Thomas Allen, for the ' North-West parts,' and the 
fancied treasures of Meta Incognita. Taking, a new route, he sailed down the Channel and 
along the Southern coast of England and Ireland, and sighted Cape Clear on 6 June. Hence 
he sailed north-west until the 20th, when he reached the south of Greenland, where he landed, 
and named it West England, giving the r.ame Charing Cross to the last Cliff of which he had 
sight as he sailed pasf two days later. On 2 July the fleet sighted the islands off Meta 
Incognita, but could not proceed on account of the ice. After losing himself in the ' Mistaken 
Streight ' (i.e., Hudson's) through no want of being warned by the more experienced 
Christopher Hall, master of the Aid, Frobisher anchored in the Countess of Warwick's Sound 
31 July, where he found Fenton in the Judith, who arrived there ten days before him. 
Meanwhile Hall in the Thomas Allen was beating up in the open two or three of the other 
vessels which, had lost their bearings in the storms and mist. After wasting nearly two 
months .in finding the rendezvous and repairing damages there, the only results were the aocd- 
dbntal discovery of a new strait by Frobisher, afterwards explored by Hudson, the further 
discovery of the upper part of Frobisher Bay by Best, and the loading of the soundest 
vessels with mineral that turned out to be worthless. The fleet sailed for England early in 
September, and arrived at various ports near the beginning of October; 

" One curious fact of geographical interest in this voyage of 1578 remains to be noted. 
The Emmanuel Buss of Bridgwater, as she came homeward, to the south-east of Priesland 
(I.e., Greenland), discovered an island in lat. 57i° north, and sailed along the coast three days, 
' the land seeming to be fruitful, full of woods, and a champaign country.' This island has 
been a source of perplexity to map-makers and navigators down to our day. It was doubtless 
an island, now submerged, a phenomenon by no means unknown in these regions, if we are to 
believe Euysch, in his map of the 1507 Ptolemy."' D.N.B.

de Mendoza on his missioiu of 1578, enabled the latter to write the Historia. A third journey 
in 1581, by Martin Ignacio de Loyola, furnished the Itinerario, which includes Mexico and 
the Philippines. 

This Itinerario is very interesting. Fr. Ignacio on his Voyage to China went via the 
Canaries and St. Domingo, from there he passed to Vera Cruz, across Mexico, between 
Mexico and Acapulco, and re-embarked from this port for the Philippines and China. Although 
brief, the account of the Voyage is extremely interesting. He speaks of the Discovery of New 
Mexico by Ant. d'Espejo.

***This is the EARLIEST DISTINCTLY AMEKICAN ATLAS. It is as important 
in tlie history of the early cartograjphy of the New AVorld as Ptolemy's Maps are in the 
study of the old. 

Nordenskibld states that the author has described a part of the globe entirely un- 
known to the ancients, in a manner completely different from the style of the Alexandrian 
geographer, and that the work does not contain a ma.j> or a single line of Ptolemy. 

Map No. 1, " Or.bis terrarum," is a copy of Meroator's map of the world of 1584. 
The western hemisphere outlines the northern and southern continents. North America is 
called " America sive India nova." The iinhnown, northwest coast is defined and is separated 
from Asia by " El sfcreto de Aniaii." A small inland sea, " mar diulce," is probably Hudson's 
bay. " No. Francia " is Labrador, north of which is " Estotilant." " Groenlant " is an 
Arctic island with " Groclant " to the west and " Islant " on the east. The outline of the 
southern continent is less accurate than that of the northern, and it has no general name. 
Terra del Fuego is represented as part of an indefinite Antarctic (region, and is entirely 
separated from the continent. Maps of special interest and value are : No. 2, " Chica Sive 
Patagonica et Australis terra," which Nordenskiold describes as a "beautiful" map; No. 10, 
an early maj) of Cuba; No. 13, "California," represented as a peninsula; No. 17, " Norutn- 
bega et Virginia"; and No. 1!), " Estotilandia et Laboratoris terra," which is also a moet 
interesting maip of the Arctic islands. '" Groenlandiae iparvsi," " Islandiae pairs," and 
" Frislant " appear to have been much better known than the mainland. The entire mai> 
shows the author's knowledge of the Zeno chaTt and the discoveries of the Zeno brothers.

* * * A Magnificent Copy, with large margins, of this exceedingly rare hook. 

The Author, Sir Thomas Smith, was born about 1558, and in June, 1604, he was 
appointed to be special ambassador to the Czar of Russia. 

" When the Bast India Company was formed in October, 1600, he was elected the first 
governor, and Avas so appointed by the charter dated 31st Dec. In 1604 he was appointed 
one of the receivers for the Duchy of Cornwall, and, in June, to be special ambassador to the 
Tsar of Russia. His grandfather. Sir Andrew Judd, >vas one of the founders of the Muscovy 
Company, and he himself would seem to have been largely Interested in the Muscovy trade. 
Sailing from Gravesend on 13th June, he, with his party, arrived at Archangel on 22nd July, 
and was conducted by way of Kholmogori and Vologhda to Jaroslav, where the Emperor then 
was-. In the course of the winter he obtained a grant of new privileges for the company, and 
in the spring went on to Moscow, Ti^hence he returned to Archangel and sailed for England on 
28th May. 

" In ,1603 Smith was re-elected governor of the East India Company, and with one 
breaK, 1606-7, continued to hold the office till July, 1621, during which! time the company's 
trade was developed and established. In January 1618-19 he was appointed one of the com- 
missioners for the settlement of the differences with the Dutch, which, however, after some 
years of discussion, remained for the time, unsettled. His connection with the Bast India 
Oonipany and the Muscovy Company led him to promote and siuipport voyages for the discovery 
of tihe North-West Passage, and his name, as given by William Baffin to Smith's Sound, stands 
as a memorial to all time of his enlightened and liberal energy. In 1609 he obtained the charter 
for the Virginia Company, of which he was the treasurer, an ofiice which he held till 1620, 
when, on being charged with enriching himself at the expense of the company, and on a demand 
for inquiry, he resigned. The charges against him, which were urged with great virulence, 
were formally pronounced to be false and. slanderous, though Smith was not held to be alto- 
gether free from blame; and the renewed inquiry was still going on, when he died at Sutton- 
at-Hone in Kent on Sept. 1625. He was buried at Sutton, where, in the church, there is an 
elaborate monument to his memory. The charges against him had met with no acceptance 
from the king; to the last he was consulted on all important matters relating to shipping and 
to eastern trade, and for several years was one of the chief commissioners of the Navy, as 
also governor of the French and Somer Islands companies." (D. N. B.)

London, Printed by I. D. for John Jaggard, anS are to be soldi at his 
shop at the Hand, and Starre in Fleete-streete, veere the Temple Gate, 1622. £25 

* * * Sir Bicbiard Hawkins' oonooption was r.ot only a ivojyag'e round the world, 
arriving at " the islaads of Japan, of the Philippines, and Moluccas, the kingdoms of China 
and East Indies, by the way of the Straits of Mfigellau and the South Sea," tout he designed 
principally, he tells us, " to make a perfect discovery of all those parts where he should 
arrive, as well known as unknown, with their longitudes and latitudes, the lying pf their 
coasts, their, head-lands, their .ports and toys, their cities, towns and .peaplings," their 
mai-ner of government, with the commodities which the countries yielded, and of which 
they have want and are in necessity. 

The account of the early part of the voyage, written by Hawkyns himself, is 
interesting from j;he intelligent descriptions of sea life and of the places at which the 
ships touched. On o Novemiber they anchored be<tween the Santa Anna Islands, to the 
North of Cape Frio. There they iput the sick on shore, and refreshed them with eea-fowl 
and such fruits as the islands afforded. Afterwards they watered at Isla Grande, to the 
West of Rio Janeiro: and on 18 December shaped their course fox the Straits of Magellan 
At Santa Anna they had emptied out and burnt the victualler; xM the mouth of the 
River Plate the pinnace deserted and made her way hoane again. The Dainty thus came 
alone to the Straits; passed through, not without danger; and on 19 April, 1594, anchored 
at the island of Mocha, where fresh provisions were procured. " I have not tasted better 
mutton anywhere," Hawkins noted. And so on to Valparaiso, w"here they plundered the 
town and ransomed the ships in the bay; thence going north, making a few prizes, they 
anchored on 18 June in the bay of San Matea. where on the. 19th they were found by two 
large Spanish ships, well armed and commanded by Don Beltran de Castro, brother-in-law of 
the viceroy, who had fitted them out etspressly to look for and capture or destroy these 
Knglish pirates. 

The crew of the Dainty had been reduced by deaths to about seventy-five; the 
Spiaijiards are said to have Numbered ten times as many, which is probable einough. 
Another estimate, making them "thirteen hundred men and boys," may be pronounced 
a gross exaggeration. The Dainty was stoutly defended, and she might .possibly have beaten 
off her assailants and made good her escape, but for the extreme carelessness with which 
she had been prepared for action. Hawkyns had left all the supervision as well as the 
prei)aration to the gunner, in whom he had perfect confidence, but who, in the hour of 
need, proved ignorant and incapable. There were no cartridges, much of the ammunition 
had been spoiled by damp, few of the guns were clear when they were wanted, and some 
of them had been loaded with the powder on top of tha shot. Hawkyns's own account 
of the action tells of such gross neglect and mismanagement, as to give rise to a suspicion 
that, whatever the gunner's faults, Hawkyns was not the " complete seaman " and rikijful 
commander that he would wish his readers to suppose. Of his stubborn courage, however, 
there is no doubt. The fight lasted through three days, till Hawkyns was canried below 
severely wounded. The ship was then almost knocked to pieces, with fourteen shot under 
water, seven or eight feet of water in the hold, and the pumps smashed; many cxf Oie men 
kiUed, many more wounded, and the rest mad drunk. Hawkyns therefore surrendejred on 
capitulation, Don Beltran irolemnly pledging himself "that he would give us our lives 
with -good entreaty, and send us as <3peedily as he could into our own country." (D. N. B.^

Tbis is one of the most interesting of tho early New England books. 

The -vTOirik details the natuTal features of the country, tells of the habits and 
costoms of the Indians, etc. Am Indian vocabulary is placed at the end and takes precedence 
of the linguistic labors of Buger Williams, John Elliot, and others. It is possible that the 
auUior may have had the co-operation of both Williams and Elliot, who came to New 
BngUutd in 1631. The map, which is dated in each edition to correspond with its imprint, 
ia more correct and fuller in its details than in the previous issue. 

The majority of the few known ooipies of this work are in public institutions.

* * * This is probably the maimscript from which was printed " Some Account of 
Circumstances in the Life of Mary Pennington," from her Manuscript left for her family. 

The first 97 pages give an account of the early life of Mary Pennington, formerly 
Mary Springet, the Mother of Gulielma Maria, the wife of William Penn. 

W'riting to her Grandson, Mary Pennington gives an account of her first husband 
S. Springet, .and the part he took in the Battle of Edgehill, and an account of his death 
during the siege of Arundel. 

Penn's advice to his wife and children was written when he left England for Pennsyl- 
vania in 1682. In this letter he commends them to God, and bids his wife and children live 
in the love of Truth, to be diligent in meetings of worship and buiuiness, and let meetings 
be kept once a day in the family. 

To the children he gives ad\ice concerning: their education, their love and respect 
for their Mother, and writes ; — 

" .... as far you that are like to be concern'd in the Government of Pennsyl- 
vania and my part of East Jeirsey, especially the first .... live therefore on the lines 
yourselves you would have the people live, then you have Eight and Boldness to punish the

set about repairing the breach made in the settlement of the parochial clergy. It was felt 
on all sides that Bray would do better service to the Church in Maryland by returning home 
and endeavouring to get the law, which bad been twice rejected there, re-enacted with the 
royal assent. He returned to England and found that the Quakers had raised 'prejudices 
against the establishment of the Church in Maryland. Bray refuted these and the bill was

John Ker, a Government spy, in the pay both of the Government and the Jacobites, 
was in 1713, a,ooording to his own testimony, sent on a private mission to Uie Bmi>eror of 
Austria in connection with a scheme for employing bllcaneers to harass the trade of Fiance 
and Spain. 

Volume II. deals with " the easy access the French have to all our Colonies, on the 
Continent in America, from Canada to Louisiana, by Land and Water, and tha;t without the 
aid of ourl neighbourly Indians it will not be in our power to prevent their Irruptions." 

Great importamce seems to be attached to the possibility of the French settling in 
Loiuisiana, and that they would be in a position to rain the trade with Jamaica, and become 
1 he masters of the Gulf of Mexico.

*** Garcia's opinion, as opposed to the special theories of other writers, was that 
the American. Indians drew their origin from various races of the old world, including 
Chinese and Tartars. But all his learning on this subject is of less value than the positive 
facta concerning the native tribes, which he drew partly from his own experiences in the 
New World, and partly from a MS. work by Juan de Vetanzos (on© of the companions 
of Kzarro), and a mam specially skilled in the native languages); which was in the possession 
of Garcia, and which hasi never been published. The libro ultimo of Garcia's work contains 
the native Indian accounts of their origin, and is divided into sections which treat separately 
of the various distinct triljes of Mexico and Peru.

Effigies of the Pope, Pretender and Devil, all which were cast into the bonfire at night — also 
that the Bostonians proposed to assassinate them on their iirst coming on shore. The Revenue 
Officers were tarred and feathered. The population became more and more violent, rioting 
— the Military firing upon them. The Commissioners Were accused as Enemies of the Province 
and abbettors of Murder, and it was resolved to prosecute them in the provisional Courts of

the first volume with his opinions on the troubles : — 

" I am persuaded that the present war on the part of Great Britain was unavoid- 
able, without relinquishing her authority, and to anyone who lived in America, it was 
very apparent, that anarchy and ruin must be the conaeciuence of the general principles 
and practices. It was obvious that the great grievances the people laboured under, was 
the popular Constitution of thei^ Charter Government, and it had long been a reproach 
to Great Britain that she neglected to reform them." Etc.

to irake.the world desirous they shou'd transmit any record of their lives." ■ 

His travels were to Hamburg and Brunswick 1751, Antigua 1756-60, Germany 1761-3.

missioners of the Customs in London — to take the management of the Correspondence with 
the American Officers under the Board of Customs — " to receive all letters and Accounts 
from the American Officers and to prepare all the deepatches to ba sent to them — to note all 
the errors that appear, and propose all the remedies, and in short the whole management 
of this business to go through his hands." Prom this poet he was appointed the head of "the 
commissioners to put the Stamp Act into active movement and left England in 1767 for 
Boston and returned to England in 1776.

the Mercenaries by the gallant Provincials on the 19th of July, on which day Heaven gave 
up our enemies into our hands, and made us entire masters of this country, purchased by 
our ancestors. I shall endeavour to be as particular as the tumult of my joy will permit. 
July 18, our ■whole army, consisting-, with the 'reinforcements from Virgii:ia, Philadelphia,. 
New-York, aud Albany, of 80,000 foot, and 10,000 horse, having been reviewed by General 
Washington, and the Major Generals Lee, Ward, and Schuyler, it vias agreed in Council, to 
drive- the Enemy from their post on the Neck, and oblige them to evacuate Boston. 

" The defeat -was entirei; we pursued them intj Boston itself, took 2,000 prisoners, and 
destroyed their whole army, excepting a few Marines, who escaped with the Sailors on board 
the ships. Three of their Generals are among the dead. Gage, Hoiwe, Clinton, and Burgoyne ; 
Lord Percy w^as taiken prisoner by the hands of the resistless Ward, as he -was running

" We only lost two of our Generals, Lee and Putnam. With sorrow I must say, the 
former fell by the hands of Gen. Washington. Confident of his military abilities, he dis- 
puted the propriety of some orders, and said, 'he had seen service'; on -which the General

cated to Bishop Hughes, from the distant solitudes of the Rocky Mountains, by a pioxis 
Catholio priest, who devoted his life to the conversion of the Children of the Forest to 
Chxistianity. The book might properly enough be called a history of the religious ocoupa- 
tiom of Oregon, for it gives a minute account of all the missions that have been established, 
or attempted, in that vast and wonderful region to which the red men have been compelled 
to fly before the rising tide of civilization. 

" We have been more deeply interested in the contents .of this well-writtea volume, 
than ia any similar w<>rfc -that we have ever read. The Authoir seems to spread tRe gr6at 
wilderness out befo're ue like a map, and while kindling in our minds a sense of the infinite 
grandeur and beauty of Nature, inspires us at the time with something of the spirit of his 
own holy mission. The" very names of the 'solitary places from' whict he dates' Ms letters, 
not only startle us by their strangeness, but are linked with the most affecting associations. 
■ Foot of the Cross of Peace ' — ' Village of the Sacred Heart of Jesus ' — such are the names 
with which the Catholic Fathers christen the wilderness which is made glad by their labours."

, "Eeeent events in the United States have however directed the attention of both 
XI.M. Govt, and the British public so strongly tow'ards the defences orf Canada, that it ap-

Copies of this the first edition are of eitrreme rarity. In. this most interesting worl 
the most notable feats of arms are summarily related which were accsjmplished by the 
Portuguese in Mombaza, Canano, Coohiii, etc., in the year 1505. This is apparently also the 
first work to bear mention of Ceylon (under the name of " Taprobana "). These events took 
place under the Viceroy alty of Piiancis d' Almeida, Count of Abrantes, who became Viceroy 
of Portuguese India in 1505. During his administration, the Portugnese discovered Ceylon, 
the Maldive Islands, and Madagascar, to which the name of St. Laurence was given. He 
intended subduing the whole of the Malabar Coast, but before he could put his project into 
execution, he quarrelled with Albuquerque and resigned. He was kil'ed by an arrow, near 
the Cajie of Orood Hope, in u, quarrel with the 'KaiRrs, on 1st Mairch, 1509, on hie retrtim 
journey to Europe.

* * * " This history . . . has always been considered one of the most valuable 
pearlt. of Philippine literature, for Combes was an uncommonly intelligent observer who 
personally visited most of the localities which he describes, while occupying himself a high 
position in his order, so that he not only wrote but made history. His hook and that of 
Forrest . . . were up to the time of Semper's travels the authorities followed hjy all 
geographers, although it is improbable that more than a few ever saw Combes' original, 
of which In all Middle Europe only one example is to be found (Chamisso's copy given to the 
Prussian State Library in Berlin). . . . Especially interesting are the notes on the 
Negritos, showing that two hundred years ago they were comparatively common in localities 
in Mindanao where they have now entirely disappeared. The zoologist too will be interested 
in P. Combes' statement that wild elephants were to be found then in the islands.^' — Trans-

" The commentary is especially valuable in giving information on the history of those 
islands, derived from imprinted sources. The preface contains Combes' biography, the 
history of Mindanao, and ethnographical, linguistic, and bibliographical notices. As Eetana 
is an excellent bibliographer, he is at his best here, while in history his point of view is very 
partisan. In the linguistic portions we find traces of the pen of P. Pastells, long a missionary 
in Mindanao and superior of the Jesuit missions, province of Mindanao. - . . In this

Manuscript written in a contemporary hand. 

268 pp., folio, old calf gilt. 1674. £31 lOs 

* * * This Manuscript is of great interest and importance for the History of the East 
India Trade, as at this time the Dutch maritime power was supreme, and they owned a great 
number of islands and ports in the East Indies. 

The Journal starts with a copy of the Royal appointment of the Commissioners by 
King Charles li. to meet with the Commissioners deputed by the States General of the United 
Provinces, to draw up the terms of a new Marine Treaty, including trade with the East Indies. 

Full particulars are given with the Minutes of the Meetings of the Commissioners at 
EishmoDger's Hall, London, between Jujy, 1674, and February, 1675. v 

At the first meeting of the Commissioners it was decided that they should " first 
proceed upon the Treaty Marine and then upon the business of the Bast Indies and deliver 

a project of Instructions and alterations to be made in tie treaty Marine in 

regard to the present Treaty Marine, with the United Provinces, is to determine in or about 
the month of November next, that in the first place consideration be had of frameing a new 
one, and in the doeing thereof to avoid those things which are found in the present Treaty 
to be unequall, inconvenient and impracticable " 

Following these preliminary instructions is a letter from the King appointing Mr. 
Bedford to be Secretary, and giving a brief outline of what is desired of the Commissioners, 
after which is a copy of the preliminary terms in Dutch and English, with eadh article 
separately discussed.

* * * A very rare book of wMcli only a few copies were printed. • 

" The mystery oonnected with that country in the Far West, desoribed by ancient 

Oiiincse authors under the name of Ta-ts'in, has occupied the sinological woirld at intervals 

since the beginjiing of the last century. The task which I thought had still to be performed 

in oonnieotion ■wiith this interesting subject was:— 

1. The collection of all Chinese texts oiniiBodying information, on the subjeSt; 

2. The translation of these texts as far as they were new to the public, and the 
retranslation of poTtions already kmown. but hitherto imperfectly rendered; 

3. The identification of factsi contained in these Chinese texts. 

My interpretation of these records leads to- the oonclusioai that tlie ancient country 
of Ta-ts'in, called Fu-lin during the mididle ages, vras not the Roman Empire with Rome as its 
capital, but merely its oriental part, viz., Syria, E^ypt, and Asia Minor; and Syriia in the 
first instance. If aipplied to the Roman Orient the greater part of the facts mentioned by 
the Chinese dan be traced, and a xeasonable explanation may be found for them without 
resorting to imiptrobaibilities; while, if applied to the whole empire, or to Italy, or to any 
other part of ancient Rome, the matter contained in the Chinese tradition does not agree 
with Teality. As I read the Chinese notices they contain tolerably exact statements regarding 
the contemporaneous geography of western Asia; they would indeed b^ " puei-ile nonsense" — 
aa I believe Colonel Yule .calls them isomewhere in his Cathay— if applied to any other part 
of the world." (Author's Prefooe.)

ALEXANDER WYLIE (1815-1887), 

ALEXANDER WYLIE, Celebrated Missimmy and Chinese Scholar, 
was born in London on 6th April, 181^, and was the youngest son of an oil and 
colour merchant in Drury Lane. His father came front Scotland about 1791- 
When a year old Alexander was sent to Scotland and -placed under the care of 
a relative who lived on the Grampians . He was educated in a grammar school 
at Drumlithie in Kincardineshire , and after his return to London in a school at 
Chelsea. On leaving school he was apprenticed to a cabiniet-maker . 

Having picked up at a bookstall ct. copy of Joseph Henri de Premare's 
" Notitia Linguae Sinicae," he learned sufficient Latin to read it, and its perusal 
led him to study the Chinese language. Procuring from the British and Foreign 
Bible Society a copy of the New Testament in Chinese, he began to read it, com- 
piling a dictionary of symbols as he proceeded. When James Legge returned 
to England in 18^6 he required a superirntendent for the London Missionary' s 
Society's printing establishment at Shanghai. Wylie visited Legge, who found 
with surprise that he had so far mastered Chinese without assistance as to be 
able to read the gospels with tolerable accuracy. The, London Missionary 
Society engaged him and sent him to the offices of (Sir) Charles Reed for six 
months to study printing, while Legge instructed him in\ Chinese. On 26th 
August, 184.7, ^^ arrived at Shanghai, his salary being paid by the Bible 

While in charge of the printing press he learned the French, German, 
Russian, Manchu, and Mongol languages, besides acquiring some knowledge of 
Greek, Uigur, and Sanskrit. He was deeply read in the history, geography, 
religio7i, philosophy , arts, and sciences of Eastern Asia, and had a wide acquain- 
tance with Chinese literature. His knowledge of Chinese mathematics was 
unique. He made frequent expeditions with other missionaries into the interior 
of the country , and more than once erncountered grave perils. In 18^8 he accom- 
panied Lord Elgin in his expedition up the Yang-tsze as a. temporary agent of 
the Bible Society. He left Shanghai for England in i860, and returning in 
1863 as a permanent agent of the society, travelled through St. Petersburg and 
Siberia to Peking. He continued in\ charge of the agency until 1877. In 186S 
he accompanied Griffith John, the Wesley an missionary , on a journey of two 
thousand five hundred miles, proceeding up the Ycmg-tsze to the capital of Sze- 
chuan, thence to the source of the Han, and then to Hankow and Shanghai, hi 
this tour he visited many places hitherto unknown to Europeans. 

In ten years he dispersed among the people over a million copies of 
portions of the Bible. In 1877 , owing to the failure of his eyesight from 
incessant proof-reading, he returned to England. 

Although a protestant, Wylie was on good terms with many of the Jesuit 
and Dominican priests in China, and the Greek archimandrite was his personal 
friend. His translations and publications were of great service to Chinese 
scholars, and Henri Cordier states that Wylie' s library was the foundation of

*** A MOST INTEEEoTlNG JOURNAL. Wylie's "Introductory Chapter-" extends 
to 15 pp., in. which he gives a synopsis of other Chinese narratives of travels. 

Koh Sung-taon's embassy to England was on account of the massacre of the interpreter 
attachied to the British Expedition of 1875 which oriossed China from Burmah to Bhamo. 

Wylie writes ; — 

" The intelligent appreciation of European institutions shewn by his Excellency, his 
ready adaptation to the novel circumstances in which he is placed, and the general suavity 
and good feeling that have marked his intercouise with all who have been -brought into 
contact with him, have gained for him the esteem of Englishmen, and form a~ guarantee 
of the power for good that his influence will exert in his own country. 

" We venture to think that such will be the estimate of those who read this first instaJ- 
ment of his journal since leaving China. The variety of topics touched upon, and the candour 
with which he compares the progress of the West, with the stagnant institutions of hin 
own country, are apt to take us by surprise, as coming from an Oriental, and a native of 
one of the most conservative of Empires. 

" The geography, the politics, the manners and customs, of a'most every country on 
the way, come in for cursory remarks; and scarcely a day passes — of what appears to Aavo 
been a voyage of much suffering — that he does not introduce some topic of interest; taking 
up by turns most of the great questions that have been recently occupying the attention of 
the public. 

" The subject of the religions of the World come in for a share of attention also, 
but on this head, his ideas are but hazy. The conclusipn he comes to is that the country 
of Confucius will compare favourably among the kingdoms bf the Globe, in its universal 
toleiation of creeds of every caste."

* * * This was one of Wylie's most famous literary works, and it consists of Books 
7 to 15 of Euclid. Apparently he had the help of Native Scholars. 

"The accompanying transi'ation of the last nine Books of Euclid, was undertaken in 
ac-ordance with the earnest desire of the native scholar, whose name (Le Shen-lan) is 
appended as the writer. His peculiar qualifications for the work were an inducement to 
proceed with it, and tended very mateiially to lighten the brrden, wh^c^ would iti other 
circumfitances falll on the foreign translator, while his name may be looked mpon as » 
guaiantee for accuracy in detail. The first draught was little more than half done, when 
application was made by Han Ying-pfe, a Keu-jin of Sung-keang, for permission to print it 
at his own expense. The finished manuscript was committed to his care, and during the 
prcoess of cutting the blocks, the work had the benefit of being revised by Koo Kwan-kw?ing 
and Chang Wan-hoo, two talented scho'ars in the neighbourhood. 

" To accompany this issue with an apology would almost seem out of place. Truth 
is one, and while we seek to promote its advancement in science, we are but preparing the 
way for its development in that loftier knowledge, which as Christian men and Missionaries, 
it is our chief desire to see consummated." — ^A. Wylie.

Ireland, with plans of the chief cities, full descriptions of their monuments, " as also tie 
rates of hiring coaches and horses from place to place with each day's expenses for diet, horse- 
meat, and the like." The second part is a history of Tyrone's rebellion, replete with invalu-

Moryson is a sober and truthful writer. He delights in statistics respecting the mileage 
of his daily journeys and the, varieties in the valties of the coins he encountered. His descrip" 
tions of the inns in which helodged, of the costume and the food of the countries visited, 
render his work invaluable to the social historian.

gram at the beginning gives the name of the then reigning Doge (Giovanne Mocenigo) whose 
period was from 1447 to 14S5 according to Dibdin (Aedes Altiiorp II., No. 1305), the 'book

verses in praise of the printers distinctl(y assert that the ' invention ■" of the designs was 
Santritter's, and the cutting by Hieronymus de Sanctis. Whether Santritter may be credited 
on this evidence with the design of the frontispiece is perhaps doubtful. The identification 
of his temporary partner as a. woodcutter is the more interesting since . besides this he issued 
•other illustrated books, a Flore di virtu with a frontispiece of a rather grim-looking Friar 
in a Garden, the important edition of the Meditatione sopra la passione di Cristo, in which

On the verso of leaf A 1 is a modified Ptolemaic Map of the World engrayed on wood, 
which shows Europe, Asia, and the northern portion of Africa. On the latter we find the 
Nile, with its sources in two lakes, one directly on the equator, and tJhe other just south of 
it. These lakes correspond in place with those now called the Albert and Victoria Nyanza, 
showing that their location was surmised, if not actually known to geographers, at least four 
centuries before their late re-discovery. At the south, streams rising in mountains flow into 
these lakes. TIhe Niger in western Africa is also laid down. 

This map is a very early example of true chiaroscuro printing. 

Of Pomponius Mela nothing whatever is known, but he is believed to have lived in 
the time of the Emperor Claudius. This is one of the earliest geographical works, the 
editio prinoeps of which appeared in 1471. It is written in a clear and simple style and 
notwithstanding its conciseness is enlivened with interesting descriptions of manners and

Sebastian Brant, a German satirical poet, wrote the " Ship of Pools," a poem which 
enjoyed considerable popularity in its time, and was translated into Latin and the principeil 
European languages. The popularity of this work is attested by the fact that four different 
editions of the Latin edition were publis:hed in 1497. 

The following passage is of interest for itte early allusion to the New World. 

Prestita cosmographi lustrat documenta Strabonis 

Intactu tota nil sinit orbe quidem. 
Quid geometer enim tantas in peetore curas 

Concipis : incassum cireulus ista terit. 
Plinius erravit : quamvis spectabilis auctor : 

Errores varies & Ptolomeus habet. 
Invanum siquide nmltorum corda laborant : 

Bebus in incertis quos ita sudor agit. 
Antea que fuerat priscis incognita tellus : 

Exposita est ooulis & manifesta patet. 
Hesperie oecidue rex Perdinandus in alto 

Aequore nunc gentes repperit innumeras. 

Brant here repudiates the errors of Pliny and Ptolemy for stating that there was 
no land beyond the sea to the West, and gives a full page engraving of Pliny as a " Fool."

Heywood (Vetex)— continued. 

Bligh iprobably thinking that a boy of his tend-er years would omly be an encumbrance. Wher 
the mutineers split into two parties at Tahiti, Heywood -was one of those who cremained there; 
and -when, on 23 March, 1791, the Pandora, under the command of Caiptain Edward Edwardsi 
anrived in search of the mutineers, Heywood with Stewart, a fellow-midshipman, at once 
went off to her in a. canoe^ 

They were immediately put in irons; and the others at Tahiti having been appre- 
hended, they were all, to the number of fourteen, thrust, ihand-cuffed and heavily 
ironed, into a, sort of cage eleven feet long, built on the after part of the quarter deck, 
to which air and light were admitted through two iron gratings each about nine inches 
square. Of the mutineers who had quitted Tahiti nothing could be discoveired in a prolonged 
search. On 28 Aug. the Pantloira, in attempting to pasis through Endeavour Straits, struck 
on the reef since known by her iname, and: was totally lost. No official attempt was made to 
release the prisoners, but a few minutes before the ship went down the master-at-arms pri- 
vately let the keys of the irons fall through the grating, and Heywood with some of his- 
comipanions managed to get out; the rest, Stewart among them, went down with the ship.'' 

" Edwards had assumed these men to be deserving of the severest punishment. All 
the shipwrecked crew naturaUy suffered privations; but the prisoners were left stark naked, 
a;llowed no shelter, and insufficient food. Both at Batavia, and on the passage to the Cape 
of Giood Hope in a Dutch merchant ship, they were treated with excessive severity. At the 
Carpe Heywood was removed into the GoTgon, whetre he was allowed daily exercise on deck, 
and was confined with only one leg in irons. The Gorgon arrived at Spithead on 19 June, 
1792, when Heywood was sent on board the Hector of 74 guns, whose captain, afterwards Sir 
George Montague, treated him with humanity. On 12 Sept. he, with the oither prisoners, was 
brought befdre a court-martial. The trial lasted for six days, and on the 18th they were all 
sentenced to death; but Heywood was recommended ta mercy in the strongest terms; and 
the Earl of Chatham, then first Lord of tlie Admiralty, was so convinced of Heywood's 
innocence that he obtained for him an unconditional pardon. Lord Hood, who had been 
president of the Court, advised him to continue in the service, and offered to take him in 
the Victory 

"In August 1800 Heywood was promoted to be commander; and on 5 April 1803 was 
confirmed in post rank. He ihad previously commanded post ships, by acting order from 
Admiral Eainier, and had, in addition to the ordinary course of duty, completed the survey 
of a gireat part of the east coast o-f Ceylon, 'from which the admiralty charts were afterwards 
published. In 1806 Heywood was flag-captain to Eear-Admiral George Murray in the Poly- 
phemus at the Cape of Good Hope and in. the Eiver Plate; in 1808 he commanded the Donegal 
off Btrest and in the Bay of Biscay. In 1809 he was appointed to tlie Nereus frigate, in which 
he went out to the Mediterranean, and in April 1810 brought back to England the remains 
of Lord Collingwood."

The author of this work, in the masterly way in which he discourses upon the 
anliiquities of Roane, shows himself to have been one of the most learned archaelogists of 
his day. After speaking of the Rome of the past, he proceeds, in his third book, to the 
consideration of the New Rome, and finishes the work with a chapter on Florence, in which 
he enumerates its orators, writers, painters, and other famous men among whom, on 
the recto of lihe last printed leaf, appears a reference to Vespuccius, and his discovery of 
New Islands. This allusion is of considerable interest, and as translated reads as follows : 
" In the New World Albericus Vespulsius, a Florentine, sent by the Most Faithful King 
of Portugal, and later by the Catholic King of Spain, first discovered New IslandjS, and 
unknown places, as appears in his Libellum, in which he graphically describes the stars and 
New Islands, and as also appears in his Epistle on (/he New WorSd, to Laurentius de Medici, 
the younger. 

These words plainly indicate the existence of two books by Vespuccius prior to 1510.

copies in two libraries (British. Museum and Lenox Libraries).

the Convent of Thalmanaco, in Yucatan, with others sent from Mexico by Bishop Zumarraga 
(the first Bishop of Mexico) giving an account of the Franciscan Schools in Mexico for the 
teaching and conversion of the Indians. HThe Church Catalogue only knew of copies in the 
following Libraries : British Museum, Huth, John Carter Brown, American Geographical 
Society, Lenox, Hoe, Long Island Historical Society, Library Company of P.hiladelphia, Library 
of Congress, and Ayer Library. 

Hernando Cortes, the Conqueror of Mexico, was born in 1485, and died near Seville, 
Dlec- 2, 1547 In 1629 his remains were exhumed and taken to the City of Mexico, hut their 
present resting place is unknown. He mjide his first voyage to the New World in 1504. In 
1511 he returned, having joined Vala:squez' expedition to Cuba as the commander's executive 
officer, a position in which he served with distinction. 

In 1518 he persuaded Valasquez to aippoint him commander of u, party to explore 
Mexico. At the last mo<ment Valasquez appears to have regretted the appointment, but 
Cortis hastened his preparations and left Santiago on the 18th of Nov., 1518, landing on 
the shores of Mexico of the fourth of the following March. He sailed along the, 
finally taking possession of Tabasco. At San Juan de Vlloa he first learned of the extensive 
empire over which Montezuma ruled, and decided upon its conquest. He thereupon founded 
the city of Vera Cruz, caused himself to be appointed Captain^General of the colony, scuttled 
his ships, and set out on his march towards the city of Mexico, .iftcr four battles he entered 
Tlascala September 8, 1519, and soon after pushed on towards Mexico, reaching that city early 
in November with a force of some 6,000 natives and a mere handftil of Spaniards. He seized 
Montezuma and placed him in irons, but afterwards restored him to a semblance of liberty. 

An attempt at this juncture by Valasquez to compel him, to surrender his command 
temporarily diverted him from his object. He promptly captured Narvaez and the army 
which had been sent against him, recruiting his own forces from, the defeated troops. He 
then returned to Mexico only to find that the people had risen against the Spaniards. Driven 
from the city, a battle was fought on the plains of Otumba, in which Cortis won such a 
decisive and bloody victory as to re-establish his prestige. 

While carrying on his invasion he wrote a series of Letters to the Mmperor Charles V.. 
giving u, detailed^ account of his progress. These are the basis of almost all that is known 
of the events which took place during that notable conquest.

The work is divided into three parts which are seldom, found together. The first 
seems to have been taken, in great part, from the Decades of Peter Martyr; and the second, 
from the work: of Oviedo, printed at Toledo in 1526. The third part is a translation, with 
additions, of the anomymous work, " La Conquista del Peru," printed at Sevilla in 1.534, 
This third part has sometimes been wrongly described as a translation of Francisco Xeres', 
" Verdadera Eelacion d* la Conquista del Peru," also printed at Seville, in 1534. 

The large doubte map is the earliest one of Saint Domingo. It is very rare. Harrisse 
describes another large map (of the West Indies) but of that only one copy is known, in the 
Lenocx Library. 

Ours is an interesting copy which has some contemporary MS. notes in the margin; 
title and last few leaves sligitly wormed. 


Pietra Martire d'Anghiera, better known by his Latinized name Petrus Martyr, the 
first historian of America, was born at Arona, in July, about 1455, and died at Grenada, 
in Spain, in 1526. Be possessed eminent ability and learning, and is believed to have been 
the first writer to notice in his works the discovery of America by his countryman Columbus, 
as he is the first who published a treatise descriptive of the peculiarities of the natives 
of the New World. In 1483 he went to Rome where he became acquainted with Carjiinat 
Ascanio Sforza and Pomponius Laetus, to both of whom many of his letters were addressed. 
He was extremely fond of letter-writing, and, having a wide circle of correspondents, it 
■was no doubt owing^to him that the news of Columbus's discovery, which he probably received 
from the discoverer himself, became speedily known to a number of notable people outside 
of Spain. Harrisse in his " Notes on Columbus " has reprinted three of these letters. 

In 1494 he was ordained a priest and appointed as tutor to the children of Ferdinand 
and Isabella. Seven years later he was sent on a. diplomatic mission to Hgyjyt, an account 
of which he has given us in his Legatio Babylomica. {Printed at end of above icork). 

He was the friend and contemporary of Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Cortes, Magellan, 
Cabot, and Vespuccius. From, personal contact with these discoverers, as well as from his 
official position as a member of the Council for the Indies, which afforded him the free 
inspection of documents of undoubted authenticity, he was enabled to obtain, at first-hand, 
m,uch valuable information regarding the discoveries mai'Je by the early navigators. These 
facts he embodied in his Decades, which were based upon his extensive correspondence, but 
were written with more care and give more ample details. His works were held in highest 
esteem by his contemporaries and have always been placed in the highest rank of authorities 
on- the history of the first association of the Indians with the Europeans, and are indis- 
pensable as a. primary source for the history of early Aynerican discoveries.

The translatioa of the most imporfeuit passage relating to the origin of the Idiseafio 
is as follows : — 

" Of the origin and birth of this serpentine disease of the Island Hispaniola. The 
disease which appeared and was seen in Spain in the year of the Lord one thousand four 
hundred and ninety and three in the city of Barcelona; the wlhich city was infected and in 
consequence the whole of Europe and tihe universe of all known countries which are within 
reach of one another; the which evil had its origin and birth of old in the lelanid which 
to-day is called Hispaniola; this island was discovered and found by iie Admiral Don 
ChristobaJ. Colon and up to the present there lias been intercourse and communication with 
the people there. 

" And as this disease from its own heat is very contagious and easily communicated 
it was quickly seen in his own navy. Arid as this disease had never before been seen or 
known by the Spaniards, those mem who felt pains and other effects of the said infirmity 
attributed it to the work they did at sea or to otiher causes according to w'hat seemed fit 
to ©very single one of them. And at the time the Adidiral Don Christobal Colon came 
to Spain the King and Queen of Spain went to tihe City of Barcelona, etc. In the following 
year 1494 the most Christian King Charles of France hired many people and passed into 
Italy, and among them were many Spaniards who had been infected by this said infirmity 
and they started to infect the rest witli this said infirmity. ... In the Island of His- 
paniola of old the Indians liad called it Guaynaras also Hipas aaid Taybas and Yeas." 

In the preface which is used to dedicate the book to King John III. of Portugal the 
author states that) a million men at least had Idled of this disease because of their ignorance, 
which might be prevented by the nations having their attentions called to his treatise which 
was founded on iis experience of over ten years as a salaried surgeon in the Lisbon hospital.

Peter Bienevitz, better known under his Latinized name Petrus Apiauns, was a. Pro- 
fessor of Astronomy at the University of Ingolstadt, for more than thirty years. He was an 
inventor of astronomical instruments and designed one of the earliest maps which contains 
tlie name America. His mathematical and astronomical works, notwithstanding his geo- 
graphical blxuJders, must always take a prominent rank among those relating to the dis- 
coveries in the Western Hemisphere.

devoted entirely to America. 

The large map of the World shows both North and South America, the southern 
part bearing the name America, and the Northern the word "-Baocalearum."

narrative of a Spanisli traveller Wio witnessed some of the cruelties practised upon the 
natives by the Spaniards. 

III. This tract gives the eighth of the proposed remedies, and assigns twenty reasons 
to prove that the Indians should not be given to the Spaniards in any form of slavery. 

1V> The Bishop, during his absence in Mexico attending a council, had written 
twelve rules to the confessors whom he had appointed in his diooese to govern them in giving 
absolution. T'he rites of the Church were, by a Bull of Pope Paul III., refused to all who 
held Indians in slavery, and restitution of goods obtained by violence from them was required 
by the rules of the Bisjhop founded upon this great authority. Complaint having been made 
to the Council of the Indies of the rigour of these rules, the thirty propositions were written 
to sustain them. 

V. This tiract contains a strong enunciation of Las Casas' convictions, which grew 
out of his controversy with Sepulveda. It contains, first, a summary, by Domingo de Soto, 
of the differences between the two idisputants; second., the argiuments of Sepulveda; and 
third, the twelve replies of Las Casas to the same. 

VI. This tract contains judicial authorities and reasons why the natives should be 
restored to freedom. 

VII. This tract was written in America in 1546 or 1547, for the direction of Con- 
fessors, during Las Casas' attendance at the council held in the City of Mexico, in 1547, and 
may first have been printed in that city. By these rules the Confessors of his Bishopric 
were instructed to deny t3ie offices of the Church to all such persons as held repartimientos, 
or who did not restore the avails of unrequited labour to the Indians. 

VIII. This tract gives the principles on which Las Casas conducts his defence of 
tho rights of the natives, and was evidently written to fajniliarize the Clergy with the prin- 
ciples upon which he based his whole tlheory of the rights of the Indians to personal liberty 
and rights of property. 

IX. The purpose of this tract is to prove the sovereign Empire and universal 
dominion by which the Kings of Castille and Leon held the West Indies.

Bartolome de Las Casas, tpe Apostle to the Indians of the Sixteenth Century, was 
born in Seville in 1474 of aristocratic lineage, and died at Madrid in 1566. In 1502 he went 
with Nicolas de Ovando to Hispaniola, where he settled, and in 1510 was ordained a priest. 
In 1511 he went as curate to a village in Cuba. He soon began, to preach against the 
atrocious wrongs committed by the Spaniards against the natives, under a. system of slavery

Las C'asas (Bartholome de) — continued. 

the most cruel and destructive the world has ever known. TJiis drew .upon him the 
animosity of his sordid countrymen. Unable, by any means in his power, to check this 
cruelty, in 1515 he returned to Spain to make a personal appeal to his sovereign. Ferdinand's 
death, which happened soon after his arrival in Seville, put an end to his hoves in this 
direction, but he found sympathetic friends in Cardinal Ximenes and Adrian, the Regents, 
though he encountered general hostility to his views. 

He returned to Hispaniola Not: 11, 1516, fortified with the title of the " Protector of 
the Indians." He made numerous voyages between the Indies and Spain, in his endeavours 
to alleviatf their condition. At last wearied with his efforts and lack of success, he retired 
to a Dominican convent in San Domingo, in 1522. JSe there spent eight years in retirement, 
occupied in study and writing. In 1539, while in Spain, he wrote " The Destruction of the 
Indies," one of the most gruesome books ever written. (NO. 19 (1) OF OUR CATALOGUE). 

It was not at firit allowed to be printed, but was submitted to the Emperor and his 
ministers. Twelve years later the work was published with a dedication to Philip, the heir to 
the throne. Though the number of victims was contested, it should be remarked that the acts 
of cruelty which he described were never called in question. 

It was at this time, while detained in Spain by the Council for the Ijidies, that he 
won his grand and decisive triumph in securing the promulgation of the New Laws for the 
Indies by Charles V ., the Leyes y Ordenanfos Nuevam,ente hechas, por su Magestad, Alcala, 
1543; the decisive clause of which commanded that for no cause whatever should any Indian 
thereafter he made a slave. 

In 1544 he was consecrated Bishop of Chiapa, and on July 4 embarked for Hispaniola 
with forty-four monks. Besigning his bishopric, he returned to Spain for the last time in 
1547, and three years later engaged in his bold controversy with Sepulveda, who with Oviedo 
were his most formidable opponents at the Spanish Court. 

In 1552-1553, at Seville, Las Casas printed the series of nine tracts usually cited by 
the title of the first, " Brevissima relacion de la destruycion del las Indias." These are our 
principal sources of information in regard to his allegations against the Spanish oppressors 
of the Indians. (NO. 19 OF OUE CATALOGUE). 

The writings of Las Casas afforded a most formido/ble weapon for any nation on ill 
terms with the Spaniards. Num.ercms editicms were printed in Holland dniring its war with 
Spain. Similarly translations appeared in France and England. 

There has recently appeared some disposition among historical writers to attempt 
to minimize the honor which Las Casas has so long held in the estimation of the world, if 
not to prove him am unsuccessful and disappointed man. 

Fiske, however, happily expresses the well-nigh universal esteem in which Las Casas 
is held, when he characterizes him, as " .i. figure which is in some respects the most beautiful 
and sublime in the annals of Christianity since the Apostolic age." His labours for the 
amelioration of the condition of the Indians under Spanish domination certainly presents 
a picture of self-sacrifice and devotion which will continue to inspire the admiration of 
mankind so long as the Christian religion shall endure.

The last two pages are devoted to a relation of the crime of a son of Doctor Beltran. 
of the Royal Council, Ventura Beltran, by name, who having returned from the Indies witli 
more debts than money, was bewitdhed by the devil, and poisoned his wife in Madrid. 

Francisco Hernandez Giron followed Pizarro in 1532 and distinguished himself during 
the conquest of Peru. He became rich and powerful, and was highly esteemed by the Spanish 
Conquistadors whom, in secret he incited to disaffection towards Spain. 

In 1553 he was ordered to put down the revolt of the Province of Charcot, but 
took advantage of the death of the Viceroy Don Antonio de Mendoza, who had died in July, 
1552, to head a formidable insurrection with the object of maintaining the right of the 
conquerors to exact forced service from the Indians. During the interregnum between the 
death of Don Antonio de Mendoza the last Viceroy and the arrival of his successor, the 
country was ruled by the judges of the Audiencia. Giron raised troops in 1553 at Cuzco 
and flying the standard of revolt he drew to himself all the Spaniards who had been engaged 
in the factions of Almagro and Pizarro. He arrested the governor of Cuzco and seized 
the reigns of government. He defeated the Royal Spanish troops and shortly afterwards 
defeated the army of the judges at Chuquinga in May, 1554. He did not know how to profit 
by this victory and was hopelessly routed at Pucara on \lth October, 1554. He was abandoned 
by his troops, captured in the mountains to which he had retired, and on 7th December, was 
executed at Lima. This was the lalst revolt of the Conq"J.istadors of Peru. In July, 1555, 
Don Andres Hurtado de Mendoza, Marquis of Canete, entered Lima as Viceroy of Peru, and 
ruled with an iron hand for six years. He at length brought the turbulent Conquistadors 
to their knees, and completely stamped out the previous anarchy.

" Frobisher sailed from Harwich, on 31 May with, a fleet of fifteen vessels, in three 
divisions, headed by the Aid, Judith, and Thomas Allen, for the ' North- West parts,' and the 
fancied treasures of Meta Incognita. Taking a new route, he sailed down the Channel and 
along the Southern coast of England and Ireland, and sighted Cape Clear on 6 June. Hence- 
he sailed north-west until tjhe 20th, when he reached the south of Greenland, where he landed, 
and named it West England, giving the name Charing Cross to the last Cliff of which lie had 
sight as he sailed past two days later. On 2 July the fleet sighted the islands ofi Meta. 
Incognita, but could not proceed on account of the ice. After losing himself in the ' Mistaken 
Straight ' (i.e., Hudson's) through no want of being warned by the more experienced 
Christopher Hall, master of the Aid, Frobisher anchored in the Countess of Wajwiek's Sound 
31 July, where he found Fenton in the Judith, who arrived there ten days before him. 
Meanwhile Hall in the Thomas Allen was beating up in the open two or three of the other 
vessels whicli had lost their bearings in the storms and mist. After wasting nearly two- 
months in finding the rendezvous and repairing damages there, the only results were the acci- 
dental discovery of a new strait by Frobisher, afterwards explored by Hudson, the further 
discovery of the upper part of Frobisher Bay by Best, and the loading of the soundest 
vessels with mineral that turned out to be worthless. The fleet sailed for England early in- 
September, and arrived at various ports near the beginning of October. 

" One curious fact of geographical interest in this voyage of 1578 remains to be noted. 
The Emmanuel Buss of Bridgwater, as she came homeward, to the southeast of Friesland' 
(i.e., Greenland), discovered an island in lat. 57J° north, and sailed along the coast three days, 
' the land seeming to be fruitful, full of woods, and a champaign country.' This island has 
been a source of perplexity to map-makers and navigators down to our day. It was doubtless 
an island, now submerged, a phenomenon by no means unknown in these regions, if we are- 
to believe Euysch, in his map of the 1507 Ptolemy." D.N.B.

This Itinerario is Tery interesting. Pr. Ignaeio on his voyage to China went via the

Ihe author gives w short glossary of Indian terms and u. list of Indians who live with 
the Spaniards, or in their service. In the preface he states that he has been a rover 
throughout America. He has visited Peru, New Oranada, Dom-ingo, Porto Rico, Cuba, 
JarruUca, Mexico, New Andalusia, etc. He calls tlie King's attention to the fact that tnuch 
silver and gold is being yearly exported from Mexico, Peru, and the Nuevo Reyno (de 
Granada) illegally without paying excise to the Crown. In. the same way sugar and shvves 
are being dealt with in Porto Rico, Caracas, Jamaica, San Domingo, Cuba, etc., without 
paying excise to the King. Not only Spaniards are defrauding the Royal revenues, but Eng- 
lish, French and Portuguese. He states that the whole of the mines were busy defrauding 
the King and that he lost 200,000 pesetas yearly in this manner from, the mines alcmt. 
The state of disorganisation in the Spanish provinces was surpassing all belief. The author 
proposes to tell the King a secret by which he can multiply the riches conning from, the Indies 
many times and add to their population. The author spent 37 years among the " Miserables 
Indios." He alleges that the Indians were terribly maltreated and murdered to enrich 
their Spanish taskmasters. He describes the means to obtain more than one million pesos 
yearly for the King in addition to what he was already receiving from Peru, without raising 
the taxes.

tion of those who want to deprive Spain of what is right. It is certain that the first man 
who gave Columbus advice of the New World was Alonso Sanchez de Huelva, a sailor born in 
Huelva, who had crossed the ocean in a great storm. Father Joseph de Acosta mentions this 
fact, but does not mention his name, which is given by the Inca Lasso de la Vega. It was 
however known and notorious in the whole of Andalusia, and our historians should mention 
it. It was also a Spaniard who predicted the Discovery of the New World (Seneca in Medaeam

These insttuctions were given by King Philip II., in 1590, and were kept as State 
secrets till th« year 1619, when they were printed by order of King Philip III., in order 
that they might be presented to the chiefs of the fleets and captains of the boats. The book 
is not quoted or mentioned anywhere, not even in Spanish works. 

The Ordenaincas are the secret sailing instructions for all Spanish ships sailing from 
the Indies, and are of the greatest interest. Among the orders is one forbidding any ship 
to sail from America without a convoy; others forbidding ships returning from the Iiidies to 
enter Portuguese harbours under any pretext, not even fishing boats were allowed to take 
off any member of a crew from a boat coming from tlie Indies; no cargo was to be carried

(Mexico), 1624. £31 lOs 

Very important docum&D.t consisting of 25 leaves, and certainly printed in Mexico 
in 1624. 

D(m Diego Carillo de Mendoza y Pimentel, Marquis of Gelves, seventeenth Viceroy 
of Mexico, succeeded to his title in September, 1621; his nature was hard and he was subject 
to fits of temper. From the beginning of his rule he decided to clear the roads of the high- 
waymen with which they were infested. He disbelieved everything that was told him about 
the inundations to which the City of Mexico wds subject, and in order to show that the 
height of the Lagoons could prevent the floods from, taking place, he had the dykes of the 
Rio de Cuautitlan broken through. The river immediately covered the lagoons amd was 
the cause that in December, 1623, at the time of the rains the town was inundated. The 
quarrels that he had with the Archbishop Juan Perez de la Sema caused the revolt to break 
out in the month of January, 1624, which obliged the Viceroy to seek refuge in the Convent 
of San Francisco, whiqh he only left to re-embark for Spain at the end of the same year. 

The Archbishop was recalled and named Bishop of Zamorra. 

This document is written in favour of the Archbishop. As soon as the Marquis de 
Gelves returned home he answered this Memorial with some Pamphlets of his own in 1625.

The " question moral " is whether it is a mortal sin for ecclesiastics to drink chocolate 
before celebrating Mass. Tobacco is referred to in several places, and folios 36 — 42 are 
devoted to discussion as to whether tobacco may be smoked before Commnnion, as to the 
nature of tobacco, its use and names, and wliether the use of tobacco breaks the fast. 

Antonio de Leon was born in Peru, and studied at Lima. He was named " The- 
Chronicler of the Indies," amid is the author of the famous and very rare first American 
Bibliography ever printed (our No. 69). 

The book is dedicated to the governor of the Indies, and the autlior mentions in his 
preface that he has investigated all the principal drinks which have been discovered in the 
world, especially in the New World of the Indies, that is, America. In his work Pinelo 
discusses all American drinks, used by the Indians in New Spain, Peru, Nicaragua, Guatamala, 
etlc, etc. The author com^pfeins that the American Indians drink too much. He mentions 
118 different drinks, not including mixed drinks.

It contain'! at the end a resume of the history of the Philippines, 

Grau lays stress on four chief points; firstly, in what form and in wtat quantily 
there should be trade with the Philippine Islands. Secondly, if permission should be given 
to a larger extenti than heretofore to send merchajidise from the Philippines to Mexico and 
return the valine thereof in silver. Thirdly, if the permission already given to send mer- 
chandise should apply to goods of Chinese provenance or only to native products of the 
country. Fourthly, if permission should be given anew for Peru to trade to Mexico because 
of the damage that the Philippines had suffered when this said trade had been susfmnded. 

It is interesting to note in this connection that in 1593, by a Eoyal decree dated 11th 
January, fche merchants of the Philippines were forbidden to go to China to buy merchandise.

We liave been nnable to trace another copy of tihis extraordinary rare Catechism in 
the language of the Guarani Indians, which is the name of the language spoken in a very 
large part of the South East portion of South America (Paraguay, Uraguay, Brazil) ; one 
of the dialects, the Tupi, has become the current language of Brazil, and it is called " Lingoa 
■Geral do Brasil." Father Ruiz de Montoya, the celebrated missionary of Paraguay, was 
born at Lima in 1583, and entered the Order of Jesuits in 1606. He was sent to the missions 
■where he converted more than 100,000 Indians. 

This learned missionary died at Lima in 1652. He was a most active missionary and 
at the same time a most excellent linguist. Even Eodrigues was unable to add a copy of 
this book to his collection as the work is so rare.

Very interesting: work which, contains much valuable material for the history of the 
missions in South America, Asia, and the Orient in the 16th and early 17th eenfuries. There 
are many ourious eulogies of tlhese missionaries, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish and Italian, 
and among them some of the most ardent propagiators of Christianity among the indians, 
such as Jose de Ancihieta, Saint Francis Xavier, etc. 

This is the only edition which has been publislhed of this important Chronicle of the 
Jesuit Order, and it is this circumstance which partly explains the extreme rarity of copies. 
No copy of this work has appeared for sale for many years; even Pinto de Mates in his 
Manual of Portuguese Bibliography confessed that he had never seen a copy for sale. 

The third part of the book is entirely devoted to Brazil from I1he first expedition of

points which had never been fully developed." John Cotton, of whom, Roger Williams wrote

It is a powerful treatise concerning the tradei of Great Britain and tlhe cause of its

Promotion of Trade In England — continued. 

decline. The Author states how the Dutch have captured practically the whole of England's 
trade with Europe, even capturing tihe produce of our Colonies, and whereas formerly the 
Dutch had no manufactures they now manufacture in huge quantities woollen and other 
textile goods, which they export to all parts of the world. 

nhe chief reason given for the rise of the Dutch is that we have allowed them to 
monopolize the fisiheries, thus giving them enicouragement to build ships, and the great 
number of their fishermen have enabled them to man a great Navy whidh has become a 
dominant power on the seas, and that they ihave allied themselves with the Princes of Ger- 
many " and so elevated with their vast armies and strength of their league, Germanie having 
in 200 years not been so united, tlhat now, instead of seeking or designing a good peace, they 
discourse of nothing more than the ruine of France itselfe." 

The Author further states that instead of seeking an alliance with Holland, we should 
have made alliance with France, " A peace between England & France may bee maintained, 
but betwixt England and Holland never, nor a peace long unlesse Holland and Zeeland would 
bee brought to another sort of regulation in Trade than they could ever yet be brought too." 

The treatise deals with many very interesting details as to the amount and values of 
the Fisheries in various years, and of the textile goods. It further relates the aggression 
of the Dutch in the Englislh Colonies in America and how in self defence we had to seize 
their Colony of New Amsterdam (now New York). 

" In Onno 1601 several Merchants of Holland set out 17 Armatures for to seize, plunder 
and make prize of all Spanish ships and vessels in the West Indies or to burn and destroy 
any of the Spanish towns and villages in those parts, and for t(he better effecting their designe 
they received liberty of Queen Elizabeth to loan some harbour about the Island Manhattan, 
Ac, betwixt the degree of 40 and 41 where they could finde tihe most convenient places for 
their cleaning and refitting their ships, here they built a large magazine for their purpose 
which they fortified with four bastions and called the place Statns Isle, settled 3 factories, 
one there, the Snd on the south west point of the Manhattan Isle, where since was built New 
Amsterdam, a 3rd on a point of land called Pauls Hook, where they drove a very considerable 
trade with the Native Indians for several sorts of Furs, and made bold witlh the Queens 
Grace, so farr that they began a Colony there and called it New Netherlands, and in the 
year 1608 forced an English ship nander the Command of our Capt. Smith to strike to the 
States flag, wihicih King James, though a peaceable prince, so highly resented that he com- 
missioned Sir Samuel Argal to sail thither with five men of war to destroy the said Colony, 
which was accordingly effected, and they engaged never to plant there ajgain, and yet the 
West India Company of HoUand in the year 1620 began a) Colony there a second time, hav- 
ing made their position so strong in the English Court that they were not disturbed till 
the year 1664, at which time, such was the general complaint of the English Merchant, and 
als3 of the English Planters that live under their government, that althougih there was peace 
betwixt the Mafias of Great Britain and the States of the United Provinces, His Maiesty 
commissioned Colonel Richard Nichols and some other gentlemen to dispossess the West 
Indian Company of the said Colony and to incorporate it into the English Monarchy as 
soon as the said ships arrived the Governor and Inhabitants quietly surrendered themselves 
and became subjects of England under the Government of His Highness the Duke of York." 

"The great want of trade the English are reduced to, by the Hollanders having by fraud 
and deceit taken out of ooir mouths, and are in a fair way to have our plantations at their 
sole disposing also, for since the beginning of the Civil War, they have had at least, 2 parts 
of 3 of all the profits by Trade arising from the said Colonies, for demonstration, to Virginia 
since the year 1642, they of Holland and Zeeland, have sent, one year with another sixty 
sails of ships, I am informed from the said Colony ihave brought from thence 46000 hogsheads 
of Tobacco yearly. To Barbadoes they have employed above 40 sails of good ships <x) 
Christopher, 17 sails, to Nevis 12, to Antoga 8 and to Mon-soral 3 or 4 ships, to the damage 
in the total of ten millions of pounds sterling which the English nation would have had in

These two wm-ks are of the greatest importance for the early history of Brasil when 
the Partugueise were in continual ccmflict with the Dutch, both armed and commercial. That 
the Portuguese were successful in maintaining their great South American Colony is greatly 
duB to the prowess of General Brito de Freyre. He was twice Admiral of the Portuguese 
Fleet in Brasil and in 1654 he obliged the Dutch to evacuate Pernam.buco. In 1656 he escorted 
170 ships laden with a cargo of rich treasure from Brasil to Lishori. It is this great achieve- 
ment of which an account is given which is bound up in this volume. 

This very rare work which Antonio had never seen is divided into ten books, of which 
the first is devoted to the history of the discovery of Brasil and of the first colonies which 
were founded there., The nine following books treat of the histwy of the war in Brazil 
against the Dutch from 1623-1638.

The celebrated Dutch traveller remained nine years in Brazil, from 1640 to 1649, and 
has published many interesting and important documents for the history of the 1645 insur- 
rection. The author is considered one of the best authorities on that period. He was the 
agent of the India Company and lived at Pernambueo, as a super cargo. After nino years 
in Brazil he returned to Holland and after the loss of Brazil he placed his services at the 
disposal of the East India Company. He was sent to China, goiverned Ceylon and returning 
to Holland he was again urged to go out again aa his services were so much appreciated. 
He accepted the offer, but never to return, as he fell into the hands of the natives of 
Madagascar. His brother published the work.

Father Mnthias Suiz Blanco was commissary and Apostolic preacher of the missions 
of Piritu, and was horn at Estepa. He became professor of the Franciscan Order at Sevilla, 
in 1666. In 1670 he left as a missionary for active work in the missions of New Andalusia, 
Cumana, etc. He evangelised the Tharacudres Indians, founded the mission of St. John the 
Fvangelist, and then went to the Topocuare Indians, where he founded another mission 
called San Lorenzo de Aguaricuar. In 1701 he returned to Spain, where he died about the 
near 1705. According to Father Caulin, in whose work we find these notices. Father Ruiz de 
Blanco composed several works relating to the history and languages of the Indians of tliese 
Provinces. All are lost with the exception of the above, " The Conversion de Piritu." 

The Provinces of Cumana and New .indalusia are now called Venezuela, and the

Winsor says John Cotton's " Way of the Congregational Churches " furnished him 
with a clue to the fact that the principal part of this book was written by Winthrop. 

Welde arrived in Boston in 1632 and was immediately ordained a, minister at Eoxbury. 
He was associated with John Eliot ajid Richard Mather in the preparation of the " Bay 
Psalm Book." 

" Th« Sweetness of Christian loive is manifest in the sentences in which Mr. Welde 
gloats over Anne Hutchinson's banishment from Boston, and the massacre of herself and her 
family by the Indians. He considered that the Almighty had himself interposed to bring 
this punishment on her, for the gratification of the Saints of Boston."

*** Colonel LiHingston was Lieutenant-Colonel of Colonel Tfoulkes's regiment of foot 
in the Martinique expedition in February to October, 1693. His brother Jarvis Lilhngston, 
an officer of Gustavus Hamilton's (20th) foot, was made Major in Pfoulkes s, and died on the 
expedition. Colonel Ffoulkes also died on the expedition, and Luke Lillingston obtained tihe 
colonelcy. The expedition miscarried, and Lillingston's regiment was put on board the 
homeward-bound men-of-war at Newfoundland and Boston to supply the place of seamen. 
The regiment, 670 strong, was broken at Plymouth by order of Lord Cutts, and reformed 
with six hundred men of the regiment and six hundred of Colt, Norcott, and Farrington 
(29th foot), in December, 1694, and embarked as a reinforcement for Jamaica in January, 1695. 
That island, still suffering from the effects of the Port Eoyal earthquake of 1692, had been 
harried by buccaneering attacks from the French settlement in Hispaniola (St. Domingo). 
A naval squadron, under Captain Robert Wilmot, witlh Lillingston's troops on board, acting 
in concert with the Spaniards, took and destroyed the French port of Porto Paix, Hispaniola. 
Thereupon the English troops withdrew to Jamaica, and Governor William Beeston reported 
that Lillingston's regiment was so weak and sickly that he had to send them into the country 
for change of air. Lillingiston went home to recruit, and made various claims on the Govern- 
ment. His regiment disappeared from the rolls on the peace of Ryswick, and he published 
this reply to Burchett's account of the Porto Paix business, to wihieh Burchett issued a

Very rare. The author states in the dedication to King John V., of Portugal, that 
he had been teaching among, the Indians for 23 years. In the preface the author says that 
at first sight this -work migJit appear useless in view of the fact that " another catechism 
m the same language had been published a few years before," but he demonstrates that 
there is a great deal of difference between the language of the Kariri Indians of the Rio San 
Francisco or Dzubucua Indians, of which he treatls, and that of the Kariri-Kippea, for whose 
benefit the other catechism had be«n published. fPhe Portuguese and Kariri are printed 
facing one another. The author was a French Capuchin missionary born at Nantes. 

Ludewig calls these the Sabuja Indians and states that they live in the Province of 
Bahia, near Cocheira and now inhabit the village of Caranquejo and Villa de Pedro Branca.

0/ the greatest importance for the history of the conquest, colo7iies and progress of 
the Spaniards in America. On the title-pages are the engraved portraits of the most famous 
missionaries, generals, governors, and soldiers who served in America during its conquest 
and occupation, views of America, etc. 

This is the geni^ine best edition of the work, 'edited by the learned Barcia, which, 
although in preparation since 1725, did not appear till 1729. Another similar edition, in i 
vols., folio, with portraits, was brought out at Antwerp in 1728, one year previously, in haste, 
to forestall the work which Barcia had in hand, but of course it is an inferior production, 
disfigured with faults, and omitting the fourteen maps which are unavoidably necessary for 
the understanding of the description. It contains also so-called jyortraits of the Incas of 
Peru, which are merely copies of De Bry's fictitious engraving's, while Bracia's edition gives 
the genuine designs which Herrera himself had used after the native pictures. 

According to Perez Pastor (Imprenta en Madrid, nos. 784 & 1334) the 14 engraved 
maps are in many cases the first of many of the American provinces described, and the 
portraits of tKe conquistadores and other historical personages given on the title-pages are 
the most authentic that are known. More than half of the last 'volume is occupied by a 
remarkably full index (225 ff.), " Tabla general de las c(fsas rwtables y personas cmitenddas 
en la Descripcion de las Indias Occidentales, i en los 8 Decadas." In additimi to the 8 
Decadas, at the beginning of Vol. I., is Herrera's " Descripcion de las Indias Occidentales."

the American Indians drew their origin from various races of the old world, including 
Chinese and Tartars. But all his learning on this subject is of less value than the positi\e 
facts concerning the native tribes, which he drew partly from his own experiences in the 
!New World, and partly from a. MS. work by Juan de Vetanzos (one of the companions 
of Pizarro, and a man specially skilled in the native languages), which was in the possession 
of Garcia, and which has never been published. The libro' ultimo of Garcia's work contains

Father Anchieta was born on the island of Teneriffe in 1533. He went to the Univer-

for Brazil, as a missionary, arriving in Bahia in July of the same year. From 1547 the 
Jesuits were eslablished in Brazil. In 1553 he left for San Vicente, where Father Nobrigii 
was in residence. He then left via Rio for Bahia, where he was ordained Priest in 1566. There 
he became a friend of \Ignacio de Azevedo, who in 1570, with 39 other Monks, was murdered 
by pirates near the Isle of Palms. Anchieta was sent to Bahia, where he founded a College;, 
later he became Director of th« College of San Vicente, and at a later date I'rovincial of 
Brazil. He specially devoted himself to missions to the Indians and obtained marvellous 
results, whence he was named " The Apostle of Brazil." He died in 1597 at the age of C4, 
of which he had -spent 46 years in the service of the Jesuit Order.

Gumilla lived from 1690 to about 1758; thirty years of his life were spent among the 
triber. of the Orinoco. " Precieux pour la multitude de renseignements qu'il renferme " 
Brasseur de Bourbourg. 

Father Gumilla was sent at an early age to the American missions. While acting as 
a missionary he studied the history of the countries which he was evangelising. As Superior 
of the missions of the Orinoco he visited the banks of thisi great river as far as the obstacles 
allowed which he met at every step. In 1738 he became director of the College of Carthagena, 
but left in the same year for Spain. It was at Madrid that he finally wrote his celebrated 
work, which he based on the manuscripts of Fathers Mercado and Eibera. Father Gumilla 
returned to America where he died. 

The first volume of the history contains the geographical description of the course of 
the Orinoco and remarks cm the customs and usages of the Indian tribe living on its bank.

comment at the time of its publication. 

Colden, one of the first of American scientists, was a friend of Linnaeus and Franklin,

Golden (Cadwallader) — continued. 

and was also prominent in political life, being Acting Governor of New York during the 

Stamp Act agitation, at wtieh time lie was burned in efSgy in Bowling Green. 

The work seems to have become scarce as early as 1786, for in January of that year 
Mr. Jeffersom, writing to Francis Hopkinson, observes : — " Many, many years ago, Cadwallader 
Golden wrote a very small pamphlet on the subjects of Attraction and Impulsion, a copy of 
which he sent toMonsieur de Bufton.- He was so charmed with it that he put it into the hands 
of a friend to translate, who lost it.' It has ever since weighed upon his mind, and he has 
made repeated trials to have it found in England. But in vain> He applied to me. I am 
in hopes if you write a line to the booksellers of Philadelphia to rummage tiheir shops, that 
some of them will find it. Or perhaps some of the careful old people of Philadelphia or 
New Jersey may have preserved a copy. Whether Hopkinson was successful does not appear."

history, the distempers at times epidemical, and the endemial diseases, with their paper 

The writer acknowledges that in the afiair of Commodore Knowles's impress in the 
harbour of Boston, Nov. 17i7, there was somewhat of passionate warmth and indiscretion, 
merely in affection to Boston, and country of New-En sfland, his altera patria; but not with 
rancour or malice, having no personal acquaintance with Mr. Knowles; therefore from common 
fame, he only narrates his peculiar temper, his severity in discipline, and not so much regard 
as some other sea commanders have for the mercantile interest, by impressing their men, 
when hiO thought the public service required it : his courage is not questioned ; tie insinua^ 
tion concerning his personal conra^e has been construed amiss; the refusing of challenges 
from masters of merchant ships, whose men !he had impressed, is no slur. 

The writer declares that he had no other intention, than by setting the affair in a 
strong light, to contribute towards extending to the continent ooJonies, particularly to New- 
England, a late act of parliament against impressing of sailors in the sugar West-India 
Islands. Therefore as ^his affair was temporary, of mo use, and may give offence, it is sup- 
pressed in the present publication of tlhis first volume of the Summary.. Admiral Knowlles 
-since he eail'd from Boston, has been iappy in successful expeditions, particularly in reducing 
the fort of Port-Louis of Hispaniola, and in beating a superior Spanish sqnadrom off the

The Original Issue of this almost unique pamphlet, of which only one other Copy is 
known, viz., that in the Church Library, and which was found by Henry Harrisse among 
some others relating to Canada, printed at Grenoble by Cuchet, between the years 1754 and 
1760, which seemed sufficient evidence for attributing the work to his press. 

This very important relation gives an account of the most important military event 
of 1756. Oswego was a strong strategic point between the French and English settlements. 
Com,mMnding the fur trade as it did, its possession was of vital importance to the French. 
In August, Montcalm suddenly appeared before the place, and on the lith it fell into his 
hands. The French took 16,400 prisoners and 113 pieces of cannon, five war vessels on the 
lake, etc. After destroying the fortifications Montcalm, returned to Fort Carillon. He wrote 
to the minister of war," Les dispoisitionls que j'avois arreties sont si fort contre les regies 
ordinaires que I'anidace qui a ete mise dans cette entreprise doit passer pour tem,erite en 

This attack and capture was one of the baldeist undertakings of the war, gave great 
encouragement to the French, and. produced the greatest effect in France; hence this plaquette.

until July 9 of the following year. They had with them two Dutch pilots, Jan de Witte, 
named in the narrative, and Valentine Jansz, who wrote another account of the same voyage, 
which is preserved in the Archives of the Hague. They had both been with Schouten on his 
voyage. Tlie Strait Le Maire was le-ehristened Saint Vincent, which name it retained for 
some time on Spanish maps. 

The map accompanying this work is supposed to have been suppressed. It enters 
more into detail than that of Le Maire.

of th6 Portuguese in the East, including Africa, Brazil, etc. Barros, wlio is one of the most 
correct and classical of Portuguese writers, is universally esteemed as a historian. He was 
born about 1496 and died at the age of 74. He served three Portiuguese Kings— Manuel, John 
III. and Sebastian. Couto was the chronicler and chief Keeper of the famous Archives of 
Torre do Tombo (which are still preserved in Lisbon), and died in 1616. The histories of 
Cabral (the discoverer of Brazil), Vasco da Gama, the Albuquerques, Tristan da Cumha, are 
all fully treated by the most competent Portuguese historian, who had all the Archives of 
the Indies at his disposal.

With large folding map of the Marches of Lord Cornwallis in the 
Southern Provinces, comprehending the two Carolinas with Virginia and Mary- 
land, and the Delaware Counties. Plans of the sieges of Charles Town and 
York Town and the battles of Camden and Guildford. 

First Edition. Thick 4to, old calf. 

London, 1787. ^5 5s 

This book has great value, especialltsr because it contains many documents that cannot 
be found elsewhere without great labour. Portions of the work are trustworthy; but as a 
narrative it is spoiled by the vanity of the author, who distorts events in order to place his 
own services in a favourable light. 

The work begins with D'Estaingi's Fruitless Attack on Savannah in the Autumn of 
1779, and proceeds with great minuteness , of detail to give the military events of the Carolinas 
and Virginia down to the surrender of Cornwallis at York Town, October 19, 1781. 

The history is in general a compilation of the official letters of the British officers 
both in the sea and land service, and of the American and French commanders, which had 
appeared in the newspapers; together with Lord Eawdon's campaign, from the ''Remem- 
brancer " and " Annual Register." 

Tarleton's unjust discriminations and criticisms called forth • a caustic review by 
McKenzie, who in turn was answered by George Hanger. 

The Church Catalogue only knew of copies in the British Museum, John Carter Brown 
and Lenox Libraries.

The work is divided into three parts of which the first deals with the wealth and 
commerce of the province of Santa Marta, the seoomd is devoted to the Indian tribes (Indies 
Tayronas, Arnacos, Tupcs, Chimilas, Motilones, Guagiros), of that province; the third deals 
entirely with the ports and rivers. 

The fourteenth discurso relates to the Guagira language. The author says that it is 
clear, short and sonorous, and it appears to him to be the best American-Indian language. 
He states that he had a dictionary of this tongue in his possession, given him by a cleric, 
a brother of the Cacique Don Cacilio. 

The province of Santa Marta is situated in new Granada. It is one of the four provinces 
which were originally formed out of the Columbian district of Magdalena.

Father Gumilla was sent' at an early age to the American missions. While acting as

allowed which he met at every step. In 1738 he became director of the College of Carthagena, 
but left in the same year for Spain). It was at Madrid that he finally wrote his celebrated 
work, which he based on the manuscripts of Fathers Mercado and Eibera. Father Gumilla

The " Pearl," the first of a new class of 21 gun corvettes, was commissioned in 1885 
by Captain Sotheby, and was armed with the prospect of a Baltic Expedition, but the Russian 
war being over, she was fitted out for a long foreign voyage. 

In 1856 she sailed for the Pacific, calling at Madeira, Rio de Janeiro, and passing 
through the Straits of Magellan, Sandwich Isles, arrived at Valparaiso, and from there sailed 
on to Chincha Island, and finally reached the China Seas. 

The " Pearl " was then ordered to proceed with the " Shannon " for Calcutta, and 
there took part in the great Indian Rebellion. 

Very soon the " Pearl's " Naval Brigade, of 175 men and officers, landed, and fought) 
in conjunction with the Goorkha and Sikh Forces, a diary of which occurs in the Log Book, 
with remarks, etc.. Camp Captangunga, Camp Dumvoreahgunga, Cajnp Bustee, etc., etc. 

When peace was declared the Naval Brigade marched to Allahabad and then on to 
Calcutta, where they were entertained in the Town Hall. 

The homeward voyage was made via Madras, and Trincomale© and the Cape, arriving 
at Plymouth in June, 1859.

of Cundinamarca. New Granada is one of tihe parts of America about which we possess the 
fewest documents." Only the parte primera was ever published of this important work, the 
standard history of the early times of New Granada. It brings, the narrative down to 1562, 
and begins with an account of the natives and their custtoms, laws, and kingdoms for many 
years previous to the conquest. " L'auteur de cet ouvrage, natif de la. Novivelle-Grenade, etait

Reprint of one of the most important works on the early history of California. 

Of considerable importance to the Californians. Some passages make it appear that 
the writer was identical) with the Jesuit Jose Ortega, who published a Cora Dictionary at 
Mexico in 1732; but the prologue shows that he incorporated in a continuous narrative the 
reports of others besides himself. He laboured for thirty years in Lower California, and in 
the regions between the Colorado and the Gila rivers; he had the us© of the MS. papers of 
Busebio Kino in which " estan coordenados sus viajes, empressas, y descubrimientoe." The 
account which he gives of Kino's life and labours contains references to monumental remains 
of earlier inhabitants in those .regions, and is the chief source of biographical information 
concerning that distinguished geographer. It forms one of the three libros into which the 
book is divided. The author enlarges upon purely historical events and anthropological' facts 
to a greater degree than most theological writers.

Martin Behaim has been credited with having greatly advanced the art of navigation, 
and with having made extensive voyages of discovery under the flag of Portugal, bnt is best 
known as the author of a remarkable globe which he was maJcing at Nuremberg while Colum- 
bufc was crossing the American Ocean in search of the riches of the east. Schedel in the 
famous Nuremberg Chronicle gives us Behaim's own. version of a voyage along the west coast 
of Africa, stating that the King of Portugal, Juan II, sent in 1483 James Canus, a native of 
Portugal, and Martin Behaim of Nuremberg, with some galleys to Ethiopia; that they went 
to the Southern Sea, near the coast, and after crossing the line, reached the New World, 
when they happened to look towards the East, their shadow, at noon, appeared on the right ; 
that in that region they discovered lands, heretofore unknown, which had not been searched 
afte'- by any people for many years, except the Genoese, and that in vain; finally, that after 
a navigation of twenty-six months they returned to Portugal; and in proof of their dis- 
covery brought pepper and grana paradisi, thus claiming the honour of the Discovery of the 
New World claimed for Martin Behaim.

The Discovery of the Australasian Archipelago 

as related by De Qairos in his Memorials to the 

King of Spain, A.D. 16094613. 

{See Items Nos. 567 to 572; Pages 5 to 12) 

The voyage of Quiros mas the first event in the story of Antarctic en- 
terprise. Its object was the discovery of the Southern Continent and the 
annexjation of the South Pole. It luas thS dream* of an enthusiast . It was a 
failure, but not altogether a barren failure. Others of another nation were to 
follow up his idea, but he opened the glorious record of Antarctic discovery. 
Captain Cook made known the Southern C ontinent imagined by Quiros , and 
actually seen by Torres. Captain; Cook first crossed the Antarctic circle, and 
searched all round it for the supposed coast-lines of Quiros. Great cominunities 
were to arise in the Southern Continent, in Australia and Neiv Zealand, but not 
of Spanish race. The achievements of the peoples of the Iberian peninsula ivere 
of vast importance to the world; but they cavie to an end ivith the! voyage of 
Quiros. The mantle of discovery fell on other shoidders. 

Pedro Fernandez de Quiros was born at Evora, in Portugal, in 1565. 
In 1 595 he accepted the post of chief pilot in the ship of Alvaro de Mendana, 
who had received a concession to colonize the Solomon Islands, which he had 
discovered thirty years before. The expedition cuhninated at the Island of 
Santa Cruz, a new discovery, with the slaughter of the old Camp-Master, the 
deaths of Mendana, and his brother-in-law Don Lorenzo, the succession of the

widow. Dona Isabel, to the command of the expedition, and the disastrous 
voyage to Manilla. Quiros brought a sinking ship, with rotten spars and 
rigging, safely over an unknown Sea from Santa Lruz to Manilla. It was during 
this voyage, and while gaining experience in the navigation of the Pacific OcearL 
and the treatment of natives, that Quiros conceived his grand project. He was 
a cartographer, and, in studying existing maps, he saw a great Southern con- 
tinent extending across the ocean, from the Strait of Magellan to New Guinea. 
He thought that here was a discovery as famous as had been made by Columbus 
or Da Gama. Another great continent extending to the South Pole to be! added 
to the dominions of his sovereign, with millions of souls to be saved and brought 
within the fold of the Church. He devoted his life to the realisation of this 
glorious dream with unswerving devotion, undaunted by difficulties or wearisome 
delays to his dying day; literally killed by Councils and Committees; but 
succumbing only with his last breath. He became a man with one idea. 

The Duke of Cesa, Spanish Ambassador at Rome, was so much interested 
in Quiros' s project that he assembled the most eminent geographers to examine 
and refort to him upon it. 'The Duke introduced him to the Pope demerit VIII 
and they gave him letters of recommendation to the Spanish Government. Quiros 
arrived at Madrid in 1602, and had interviews with King Philip III. Within a 
year he had obtained a royal order, addressed to the Viceroy of Peru, instruct- 
ing that dignitary to fit out two ships at Callao , to enable Quiros to undertake 
an expedition for the discovery of the Antarctic continent. 

Quiros sailed for Peru in the summer of 1603. He was shipwrecked near 
Curagoa, in the W est Indies, and had to pass some time at Caraccas. Quiros 
arrived at Lima quite destitute, owing to the refusal of the royal officials on 
the route to give him any pecuniary assistance, although they had positive 
orders to do so. He found shelter in the house of a potter; and it wees some 
days before he could get an audience of the Count of Monterey, who was then 
Viceroy of Peru. Eventually the Viceroy recognised the necessity for carrying 
out the royal orders. Vessels were tardily bought and fitted out at Callao, for 
the expedition of Quiros, in the last months of 1605. There were two ships 
and a launch. The ship chosen for Quiros was called the Capitana, and named 
San Pedro y San Pablo. She was 150 tons. The other ship was called the 
Almiranta, 120 tons. They carried one hundred and thirty men and six friars. 

Luis Vaez de Torres, the second in command tirtder Quiros, was a good 
sailor and pilot, an energetic and capable leader, and loyal to his chief. 
But his most faithful and devoted friertd was young Luis de Belmonte Ber- 
mudez. Born at Seville in about 1585, this youth had gone out to seek his for- 
tune, first in Mexico and then at Lima. Fired by the stories told him of the 
Araucanian war in distant Chile, he composed a panegyric on the youthful 
deeds of the Marquis of, Canete, the first product of his muse. {See item No. 
573 in this Catalogue). 

Quiros complained bitterly of the delay in fitting out the expedition, 
which obliged him to sail so late in the year. He considered thai he should

The Discovery of the Australasian Archipeiege — continued. 

have sailed not later than the i,th of October. He did not obtain his despatch, 
until the 21st of December. 

Quiros came to a fatal decision to alter his course. He adds in one of 
his Memorials that winter was approaching, that there was a mutinous spirit 
among his crew, that he was ill in bed. If Quiros had continued on his course 
he would have discovered New Zealand, and his dream would have been partly 

Quiros fortunately came upon Toumaco, the principal Island of what is 
vow called the Duff group. Here he found a native chief from whom he 
received such detailed information respecting the distance of islands, and, as 
was understood, even C ontinental lartds to the southward , that the most san- 
guine hopes appeared to be approaching realisation. The project of going to 
Santa Cruz was abandoned, and Quiros steered south, fully anticipating the 
consummation of his dreams of discovery. Nor was he destined to be alto- 
gether disappointed. Island after island ^ all lofty and thickly inhabited , rose 
above the horizon; and at last he sighted such extensive coast-lines that he 
believed the Southern Continent to be spread out before him. The Islands of 
the New Hebrides Group, such as Aurora, Leper, and P£ntecost , overlapping 
each other to the south east, seemed to him to be. continuous coast-lines , while 
to the south west was the lartd which he named lAustrialia del Espiritu Sainto. 
All appeared to his vivid imagination to be one continuous Continental land. 
The vessels anchored in the Port of Vera Cruz, on the southern extreme of the 
great Bay of St. Philip and St. James. He had found the largest Island of 
what Caftain Cook named the New Hebrides Group, yet not a very large island. 
He showed his belief by his grandiose proceedings. There was a ceretnony 
of taking possession in the names of the Church, of the Pope, and of the King. 
Quiros took possession of " All this Region of the South, as far as the Pole, 
which from this time shall be called Austrialia del Espiritu Santo, with all its 
dependencies for ever, and so long as right exists," in the name of King Philip 
III. A great city was to be founded and named " The New Jerusalem," and 
its river was to be the Jordan. All the municipal and royal officers were 
nominated , and a knightly order of Espiritu Santo was instituted, subject to 
confirmation by the King. There were processions, religious dances. High 
Masses and fireworks. 

The great navigator had two serious drawbacks in his rejoicing. He 
was disabled by a serious illness; and the natives, owing to the misconduct 
of the Spaniards, were persistently hostile. After being at anchor in this Port 
of Vera Cruz, from the yd of May to the %th June, 1606, the little fleet sailed 
with the object of completing the discovery of the Southern Continent. 

Then came the catastrophe. It cam.e on to blow hard and it was resolved 
to return to the anchorage. Quiros was in despair; at last he determined to 
make for Santa Cruz. It was resolved to cross the line and make for Acapulco; 
a four months' voyage. Quiros bewailed his position, but consoled himself 

(Cojitinned over) 

4 MAGGS BROS., 34 & 35, Conduit Street, London, W. 

The Discovery of the Australasian Archipelago — continued. 

with the reflection that his return would at least enable him to make known his 
discovery , and to urge upon the King, and his Councils, the im-portance of 
completing them. He also felt confident in Torres, his second in command, 
who was left behind, on board the Almiranta. Quiros hoped his discoveries 
would be continued by Torres, and he rejoiced when some years afterwards 
he received the news of the successful voyage of Torres. 

After waiting for some days for the Capitana with Quiros on board, 
Torres continued his voyage and discovered the Bay and Islands at the East 
end of New Guinea. He discovered Basilisk Island, Jenkins Bay, and China 
Strait {all later re-discovered by Morsby). He also discovered the Port of 
Monteray, on the south coast of New Guinea. From Triton Bay Torres pro- 
ceeded to Ternate, whence he continued his course to Manilla. His letters to 
CATALOGUE), and to the King, from that place, are dated June and 
July, 1607. 

Qtiiros landed at Acapulco, was very coldly received by the officials at 
Mexico, and reached, Madric^ on the gth of October, 1607. He was quite 
destitute. He only had two maravedis , which he gave ta a beggar. But his 
faithful young Secretary remained true to him. During the first eleven days, 
he had not money to\ buy\ ink or paper. He wrote his first Memorial on the 
flyleaves of a pamphlet. He got the money for printing it by selling his 
clothes. To print the second, he sold] his bedding; for the third, hi pawned, 
the royal banner under which he had taken possession of Espiritu Santo. After 
seventeen months' of extreme penury , the King granted hijii 500 ducats. 

Quiros tells us that he sent in fifty memorials in fifty months. Of these, 
eight have been preserved {For two additional ones, hitherto unktiown, see 
Nos. 570 and 571 of this Catalogue). The first was written in 1607. 
He describes the events of the voyage, and m.akes excuses for altering 
course when he had reached 26° S., and for having parted company with 
Torres. He explains his view that the Antarctic continent runs from Espiritu 
Santo S.E. to Magellan Strait, a land of vast extent; " a neiii> world. ^^ He 
says that he gave the najne of " Austrialia del Espiritu Santo " from His 
Majesty's title of Austria. 

Worn out by delays and obstruction, he gladly accepted the promise to 
give him command of a new expedition. Ignorant of the contra-des-pacho , he 
put his trust in the honour of the new Viceroy of Peru, Don Francisco de Borja, 
with whom he proceeded on the voyage to Peru, accompanied by his wife and 
two children. He thought that at lengtJi his grand ideas were to be realised. 
Fortunately, he was saved from being undeceived by a timely death at Panama 
on his way out. He died at the age of fifty, driven to his grave by Councils 
and Committees. His faithful Secretary, Belmonte Bermudez, who had edited 
the Memorials for him, stood by him to the last.

This is the original issue of De Morgans work on the Philippine Islands, Moluccas, 
Siam, Cambodia, China, and Japan, at the close of +he 16th century. It is extremely rare, 
andi tJiere isi no copy of it im. the National Library, Paris. The oaitalogne pof the G-renTille 
L>ibra.ry In the British Museum states that " This boofe, printed in Mexico, is foi that 
reason probably, unknown to bibliographers, though a book of great rarity." In the Dialogo 
Cortesano Philipino of Father Joseph Torrubia, published in Madrid, 1736, the Inhabitant 
of the Court of Madrid says, that he has nrot heaird of such a book nor of the author; the 
Philippine Spaniard answers him that the boot was ipirinted in Mexico in 1609, and is now 
Boaroely to be found, but that he possesses a. copy ; and he describes De Morga as a man in 
whom arms and science were united in a most friendly manner, and says that he composed 
bis book from original documents, sine© he was the first Auditor of tflie Audiencia of Manilla. 

De Morga is less remarkable tor his literary merits than for his qualities as a jurist 
and administrator and a commander. His book is rather an historical tlian a geographical 
work, but the account of A] vara De Mendana's second voyage by his pilot Fernandez de 
Quiros, given by De Morgia, is of great importance. 

On the voyage Mendana and Quiros discovered the Marquesas Islands and the Island of 
Santa Ctuz. 

The Philippines had a great advantage over the British colonie; (accoxding to the Hon. 
H. E. J. Stanley, in his tran.,lation ot De Moi-ga's book published for the Hakluyt Society), in 
the active co'-operation of the Monks, who were not very numerous, but ratheir were

After a preliminary appeal to the King, Quiros begins as follows : — "The greatness 
of the newly discovered lands (judging from what I saw, and frovn what Luis Yaez de Torres, 
the Admiral under my command, wrote to your Maje'sty and to me), is well established. Its 
length is as much as all Europe, and Asia Mirurr, as far ais the Caspian, with all the islaTuis 
of the Mediterranean and the Ocean which encompasses. That hidden pari: is one fourth of 
the world, and of such capacity that double the kingdoms of which your Majesty is at present 
the Lord, coiM fit into it, and this without any neighbourhood of Turhs or Moors, or cithers 
of the nations which are prone to cause disquiet and unrest on their borders. 

" All the lands that were seen fall within the Torid Zone, and a part of them touch the 
Equator, the latitude of which may perhaps go as far a* 90 degrees, others somewhat lerss; 
and if they turn out as they promise, there will be lands thai are Antipodal to the greater 
part of Africa, to the greater Asia, to all Europe, and to Florida. I woulsl remark that the 
lands I saw in 15° are much better than Spain (as will be seen presently), and that others 
should be an earthly paradise. 

" The population is numerous, the colours of the people are white, black, tawny, shades 
of Mulattos, Indians, and crosses of one and the other. Some have their hair black, thick 
and loose, others have it twisted and curly, others middy and fine; these differences being 
indicative of much interccmrse and commerce. For the above reason o« well as owing tn the 
excellence of the land, and because up to the present date we were in no hurry to go there. 

MAGGS BROS., 34 & 35, Conduit Street, London, W. 7 

De Quiros, Relacion — continued. 

also btcause they do not work in silvermines, and do other hard work for ourselves, and 
for many other reasons, it is to be believed that these people are very\ numerous; but they 
do not kmyw any kind of art, fortified places, nor army, kings nor law; being nothing more 
ihan simple, heathens, divided into tribes, and with little friendship between them. Their 
arms are bows and arrows without (poisonous) herbs, clubs, sticks, lances, and wooden darts. 
It is a decent people, clean, cheerful and reasonable, and so grateful have I found them that 
there is reason to hope that with the aid of Divine providence, and by gentle means, it will 
be very easy to pacify, to indoctrinate, and to content them. Tlhese three measures are very 
necessary in the beginning, that afterwards all may walk towards those Holy ends they ought 
to seek, in great or small thing's, with all the verities. 

" Their houses are of wood and roofed with palm leaves. They make much use of 
mother-of-pearl shells for chisels, planes, isaws; while they wear large and small plates of it 
round their necks. They do not know what riches they possess, and value highly articles of 
our own make, such as knives, beads, mirrors, and such like. They have their boats well 
made, and sufficient for passing from one island to another, whidh they can. see, or which they 
estimate to be a day or two days off. All this ils an indication of a civilized people." 

He n\e)xt describes the fruits, trees and vegetable^-, flesh, food, and fisl^. He also 
describas the silver, pearls, gold and spice. " The industry of the Spaniards in raising the 
native products will make the products of this country better and more profitable than what 
is raised in Peru or New Spain. Altogether this land will be made so rich that it alone will 
suffice to supply America, and to enrich Spain. The natives are not to be looked upon as 
having our needs, tastes and desires, nor our estimation of thinffs; but as men who seek, 
with the least work poslsible to pass their lives, not to tire themselves about the rest of the 
things which tire us." 

He tJien describes the Bay of St. Philip and St. James and the Port of Vera Cruz :— 
" At break of day, and afterwardsi we found great harmony, caused by millions of different 
sorts of little birds, like nightingales, thrushes, larks, linnets, millions of iswallows, paroquets 
and parrots, which were seen. We smelt many odours of flowers, like orange flowers, from 
which I judged that the climate was mild. 

" Here may presently be built u. very great and popular city, whose inhabitants will 
enjoy the above mentioned commoditiels and riches, as well as those which my small imagina- 
tion is unable to set forth, and those which time will show. They can. keep up communication 
with the Provinces of Chili, Peru, Panama, Nicaragua, Gudtainala, New Spain, the Moluccas 
and the Philippineie ; of all of which lands your Majesty is lord. 

" I do not exaggerate if I say that it can maintain and accommodate two hundred 
thousand Spaniards, in fine that is the world of which Spain is the centre, and^so far as it is 
u body, this is the nail. This point should be well considered. 

" I well believe by the prudent counsel, magnanimity, and Christian piety of your 
Majesty, that, with much care, the matter will be considered touching the settlement of those 
important lands now discovered; the principal obligation being not to leave them desert, 
but to make this the means of making our Lord God known in all of them, believed in, 
worshipped, and served, as now the Devil is served. Also this has to be the door by which 
so many people charged by your Majesty, have to enter for aood, and to avoid the cares that 
would arise if enemies of the Roman Church should come to show their false doctrines and 
convert all the blessings I have set forth into great evils, and call themselves lordts of the 

" If his conjectures made Cristobal Colon pertinacious, they make me ai importunate 
respecting what I isaw and felt and what I offer; for which may your Majesty command that 
such order may be taken as wiU enable the enterprise to be put forward, and I will give full 

" My Lord, this is a great work, for the Devil wages Such mortal war, and it is not 
well that he should be able to do so much, your Majesty being the defender of the right."

Next follows an. account of what the Indiariis of the Island of Taumaco said concerning 
pearls, u, chapter of the second Memorial presented to the King (now lost). 

Then follows the intercfsting report by Hernando de los Bios, the Procurator of the 
rhilippines, of a voyage to New Guinea, by a Portuguese named Miguel Roxo de Brito. An 
extract follows from a letter received bxj Quiros dated 15th June, 1607, from his second m 
command, Luis Vaez de Torres, and which reached him on the last of August, 1609, relating 
the discovery of the Strait which now hears his name, which separates .iustralia from New 

Now follows a long report hy Ruy Gonzalez de Sequeira, the Governor of the Maluccas, 
referring to natives who liad arrived from New Guinea, and of many islands that were 
hitherto unknown in the neighbourhood of New Guinea and of the Tierra .iuntral. 

Quiros then reprints the contents of his sixteenth Memorial, which contain^ many 
references to Spanish policy in Chili, and urging the King to send out missioaries to convert 
the natives. He records his conversation with Pope Clement VIII., who told him that his 
demands were just. He makes detailed proposals for the govemmemt of the newly-discovered 
land, and for the good treatment of the natives, and for their conversion. He pays much 
attention ta the seamanship of the proposed c.vped-ition, and to the navigating maps and the 
general management of the expedition. He writes much about Columbus's expedition and 
compares himself to Columbus, Da Gama and Magellan, as well as to Cortes and Pizarro. He 
asks for the following to be sent with him: eighty laymen and clerics, including Don Mancio 
del Vrena, twelve Spanish Capuchin monks {they had written him 102 letters). Fray 
Bernardino, and Fray .indres del Alameyda, both Dominican monks, six captains, who had 
offered to accompany him, etc., etc., and subm,i.ts detailed estimates. 



" The Captain Pedro Fernarulez de Quiros, whmn Your Majesty has ordered to prepare 
to return to Peru, in order to prosecute the discovery and settlement of the unknown 
Southern lariiDs, has printed several memorials i)i this Court, and recently a very long one, 
in which he discourses on the expedition he commanded, and treats indirectly of many other 
things touching the government of tlie Indies, and other subjects well le\t alone; and has given 
and distributed these memorials among various people, both of this nutioii and foreigner's. 
a proceeding which may serious inconvenience, as well frotn the information that 
foreigner.^- may be able to gather, and thus send notices of those lanil-s and of the navigation 
to their countrymen, as from the fact that most of the affairs treated of in the said memorial 
ere misrepresented. It, therefore, seems convenient that Your Majesty should order all these 
■memorials and papers that have been printed, with the originals, to be recovered; and that 
no oiiiers be published without permission from Your Majesty in Council. 

" Your Majesty will order what is for your service. Madrid, October 31st, 1610" {then

(See Illustration, Plate No. IV.). £75 

A very rare and important volume concerning the discoveries in South America, and 
also one of the earliest bookg cioneerning tlie " South Sea.s " 

Garcia Hurtado de M©ndo>za was Captain General of Chili and the twelfth Yicer<jy 
of Peru (1590-1596). Sent by his father (then Viceroy of Peru) to Chili, he distinguished 
himself in the wars against the Araucan Indians-, wliom he vanctuish«d in seven battles. In 
the present biography is given a valuable description of this war and also of the incidents 
which happened during his Vice-Royalty. 

It was under his government that the Marquesa.-i and Santa Cruz Islands were dis- 
covered by Altvaro de Mendana, who had for pilot Fernandez de QuircnG. Suarez de Pigueroa 
gives in this book an account (of the discovery; also of the expeditions of Drake, Cavendish, 
and Hawking, and battles with (these famO'Us English explorers, including the sacking of the 
I'ort of the City of Nombre de Dios. 

The expedition to the Southern Seas occupies pp. 238-292, in which is given a minute 
description of th© discovery of the Marquei^as and Santa Cruz Islands — (the SoUomon Islands 
had been discovered a few years earlier by Mendana). On his return to Peru from this 
eaTiier expedition he endeavoured to organize another expedition to colonize the Islands, 
but it was not till 1595 that he, with Quiros as second in command, was enabled to set sail 
ftor this pupposiC. Mendana, however, died on Santa Cruz, and the expedition eventually 
collapsed. Even the positioai of the Solomon Islands was now veiled in uncertainty, and they 
were quite lost sight of until, in 1767, two centuries later, Carteret lighted on their Eastern 

Sir Clements Markham, in his " Voyages of Quino-s," published by the Hakluyt 'Society, 
makes considerable mentioiii of this book, and write=! : " In the work entitled Heclios del 
Marques de Canete, a life of one of the Viceroys of Peru, by Cristoval Suarez die Figueroa, 
Book VI., contains an abbreviated version of th« narrative in the Historia, generally copied 
word for word. Numerons details are omitted, particularly such as a^re derogatory to the 
Spanish character. There are also a few passages which are not in the Historia. Suarez 
de Figueroa tells us that he had the nairrativ© of Quiros before him as he wrote. The account 
in the woxk of Suarez de Pigueroa was the only version of the second voyage of Mendana 
that was known to our historians of Pacific vnyage«. Dalrymple and Buirney. 

Quiros was thirty years of ase when he accepted the post of Chief Pilot in the ship 
of Alvaroi de Mendana, who had received a. concpsiion to colonise tiw Solomon Islands, which 
he had disaovered tliirty years before. Quiros' joined thig expedition wilh some misgivings, 
caused by the quarrelsome character of the Camp Jfaster, the want of order and discipline, 
a-nd the position assuimed by the Commander's wife and her brothers. Mendana was more 
than twenty years older than Quiros. Th© Pilot's position was one of some difficult^'; for 
while on one side he had to exercise tact in his intercourse with the family clique, on the 
other hie found it difficult to avoid firiction with a, most impracticable and quarrelsome oUd 
soldier who was Camp Master, and who had a feud with the brothers-in-law of Mendana. 
which continued to increase in, bitterness. The expedition culminated at the island of Santa 
Cruz, a new disjcnvery, ivitli the slaughter of the old Camp ^Master, the deaths of Mendana 
and his brother-in-law Don Lorenzo, the suocessinn of the widow. Dona Isabel, to the com- 
mand of the e.\-peditioii, and disastrous voyage to Manilla. 

It wag during this voyage, and while pjaininof experienne in th© navigation of the Pacific 
Ocean and the treatment of natives, that QuIto-b conceived his grand project. He was a 
cartographer, and, in studying existiiiio: iniap^, he saw a g-reat Southern coinibinent extending 
acro'ss th© ocean, from th.e Btrait of Magellan toi New Guinea. He thought tliat here wa.s a 
discovery as famous as had been made by Columbus or Da. Gaima. He thought that here was 
nolt only a great continent extending to the South Pole to be added to the dominions of his 
sovereign, but millions of souls to lie saved and brought within tlie fold of the Church. He 
devoted his life to the realisation of this glorious dream with unswerving devotion, never 
turning aside "to the right hand or to the left; undaunted by difficulties or wearisome delays 
to his dying day; literally killed bv Oouncilsi and Committees; but succumbing only with 
his last breath. He became a man with one idea."

4to, old calf. 

Madrid, 1622. £75 

Th« author of this book accompanied Jlendana (Tlie Discoverer of the Solomon Islands), 
aji'd Fernando Quiros, when they discovered An^.rtralasia. Belmonte is the author of the ex- 
tensive history of the Australasian regions, and was the chronicler of the expedition. 

The abo've work is a play in which the following are the Spanish! characters : — 
The Marques de Canete; Eon "Felipe de Mendoza. his brother; Eeynoso, master of the camp, 
etc., and there axe twelve other IncUaii personages among: the actoTs. 

The drama celebrates the deeds of Doii Garcia Hurtado de ilendo'pa, Marques de 
Canete, the famous A'ieexoy of Peru. 

Belmonte was secretary to Quiros during the v03-age of 1606. He remained faitlifui 
to QuiTos iiij his adversity, and after his master's death became a poet of some oelebritj-. 
He had edited " The Memorials " for him, stood by him to the last, and after his death 
wemt to Mexico, and appears to have returned in 1616. In 1618 he settled in Madrid. Eleven 
of his plays are known; Tieknor mentions them as being a mixture of what is saored and 
what is profane.

considerable knowledge of private matters oonneetod with the voyage, and gives an account of 
the causes which led Mr. Banks and his staff to withdraw in high dudgeon from the expedition

* * * Another exceedingly rare surreptitious account of Cook's Second Voyage, printed 
from the journal of one of the crew. 

Towards ithe end of the account it is stated that Captain Cook had orders from the 
Lords Oommissionexs of the Admiralty " to send all Journais, Papeffs, and Writings, relating 
to the Voyage, to the Admiralty Oflice for their first perusal, and who further reptuested 
them not to divulge any particulars of their voyage when they arrived on siiore, and to give 
no direct answers to any questions asked relative thereto." A search was immediately made, 
and all tihe Journals and Papers that could be found were put into a box " to be sent to the 
Admiralty Office by the first opportunity that offered." 

This account was therefore printed from one of the Journals which could not be 
found by Captain Cook. It is for this reason that the Author's name does not occur.

Peter Heywood entered the Navy in October, 1786, and made his first voyage as mirl- 
shipman on board " The Bounty " discovery ship, and sailed in her on the voyage to TaTiiti. 

" When the mutiny broke out on 28 April, 1789, Heywood was confined by the mutineers, 
but was allowed to come on deck when the launch was ready to receive Bligh and his party. 
The boat, however, could not hold them all, and Heywood with some others wa^ left behind,

Heywood (Peter) — continued. 

Bligh iprobably thinking that a boy of his tend-er years -would only be an encnmbrance. Whet 
the mutineers split into two parties at Tahiti, Hey-wood -w-as one of those who iremained there; 
and -when, on 23 March, 1791, the Pandora, under the command of Caiptain Edward Edwardsi 
arrived in search of the mutineers, Heywood -B'ith iStewart, a feUow-midshipiman, at once 
went off to her in a canoe. 

They were immediately put in irons; and the others at Tahiti having been appre- 
hended, they were all, to the number of fourteen, thrust, ihand-cufied and heavily 
ironed, into a sort of cage eleven feet long, built on the after part of the quarter deck, 
to which air and light were admitted through two iron gratings each about nine inches 
square. Of the mutineers -who had quitted Tahiti nothing ooulld be discoverred in a prolonged 
sea/rch. On 28 Aug. the Pandora, in attempting to pass through Endeavour Straits, struck 
on the reef since known by her aiiame, audi was totally lo&t. No official attempt was mad« to 
release the prisoners, but a few minutes before the ship went down the master-at-arms pri- 
vately let the keys of the irons fall through the grating, and Heywood with gome of his- 
companions managed to get out; the rest, Stewart among them, went doiwn with the ship.'' 

" Ed-wards had assumed these men to be deserving of the seveirest punishment. Aill 
the shipwrecked crew naturaliy suffered privations; but the prisoners -were left stark naked, 
allowed no shelter, a.nd insufficient food. Both at Batavia, and on the passage to the Cape 
of Giood Hope in a Dutoh merchant ship, they -were treated with excessive severity. At the 
Caipe Heywood was removed into the Goigon, where he was allowed daily exercise on deck, 
aJidi was confined with only one leg in irons. The Gorgon arrived a.t Spithead on 19 June, 
1792, when Heyvi'ood -was sent oa board the Hector of 71 guns, whose captain, afterwards Sir 
George Montague, treated him with humanity. On 12 Sept. he, with the other prisoners, was 
brought befoire a court-martial. The trial lasted for six days, and on the 18th they were all 
sentenced to death; but Heywood was recommended ta mercy in the strongest terms; and 
the Earl of Chatham, th"en first Lord of the Admiralty, was so convinced of Heywood's 
innocence that he obtained for him an unconditional pardon. Lord Hood, who had been 
president of the Court, advised him to continue in the service, and offered to take him in 
the Victory 

" In August 1800 Heywood was promoted to 'be commander ; and on 5 April 1803 was 
confirmed in post rank. He ihad previously commanded post ships, by acting order from. 
Admiral Eainier, and had, in addition to the ordinary course of duty, completed the survey 
of a gireat part of the east coast of Ceylon, 'from which the admiralty charts were afterwarda 
published. In 1806 Heywood was flag-captain to Eear-Admiral George Murray in the Poly- 
phemus at the Cape of Good Hope and in the Eiver Plate; in 1808 he commanded the Donegal 
off Brest and in the Bay of Biscay. In 1809 he was appointed to th.e Nereus frigate, in which 
he went out to the Mediterranean, and in April 1810 brought back to England the remains 
of Lord Collingwood."

" Several of the runaway Convicts from the latter place in attempting to reach the 
Berwent have died on the road, another party after having killed one of their comrades to 
preserve their own lives were obliged to return and gave themselves up to the Command- 
ment." Etic., etc
