This ▼ohinie is entirely devoted to the bibliography of the Philippine 
Islands. In its narrowest significance, die term ''Philippine bibliography" 
is restricted to the actual imprints of die Philippine Islands. By this term, 
however^ we understand and include a much wider field* in addition to 
die above, all die printed books and pamphlets of any country dealing, in 
iriiole or in part, widi die Philippine Islands; as well as all Manuscripts. 

Obviously, one cannot hope, mudi less expect, within the compass of one 
single volume, to cover the field as just oudined. Besides it is unnecessary 
to duplicate work that has been so efficiently done already. The recent bib- 
liographies published under the auspices of die Library of Gingress, namely, 
those of A. P. C. Griffin and Dr. T. H. Pardo de Tavera, furnish excellent 
working bibliographies. Th^ bibliographical works of Medina and Recana, 
aidiongh pablished in Umited edidons, are sufficiendy accessible. The 
latest work of die latter, Apttrcto btbitograficOf omrs the most extensive 
wmj of Phflippine imprints yet listed. The catalogues (especially vols, 
iv and v) of Pedro Vindel, the Madrid bookseller, can be nsed to distinct 
advantage, and are easilj obtainable. The Adiciones of Perez and Guemes 
sappiemeor Medina's and Retana*s work on die imprints of Manila and 
the Philippines. Finally, the bibliographical comments of James A. LeRoy, 
poblidied in Thg Philippine Islands^ 1493-18^6^ Vol. LII, furnish die 
most comprehensive pracdcal working list of niiUppina for the later period 
of die Spanish r^pme that has yet been attempted. 

It is to be observed diat the above bibliographies, and all Philippine 
bibliographies generally, while they do note or publish some few MSS., 
widi but few exceptions (notably Llorens Asensio*s Primer vtselta id mundo) 
are devoted to the lisdng of printed matter. Consequently, it has been 
deemed expedient, in the present work, to limit our endeavors more directly 
to the field of MSS. -a field that offers so rich a source for the history of the 
Philippines. Yet, in order that one may find within our volume co mpl ete 
maaerial for a thorough bibliographical survey of the Philippines, we have 

Digitized by 



devoted the first part of our work to printed titles. We make no pretense 
of listing the titles usuaUy found in bibliographies. Our first object^ as 
seen by the first three divisions of printed titles, is to point out the sources 
for a complete bibliographical study of the Philippines. Those three divi- 
sions are: I. Philippine bibliographies, and important bibliographical 
Ii6t8;-this in small compass covering the entire field of imprints, so far 
as bibliographies have been compiled. II. Other bibliographies; cata- 
logues of public and private libraries; and sales catalogues; -this division 
showing the recognition of Philippine titles by general and special bibliog- 
raphers; to some extent the ownership of Philippina; and the demand 
and supply as demonstrated by the sales catalogues. III. Books, pam- 
phlets, etc., containing bibliographical lists, notes, etc.;-thi8 division 
showing titles in many diflFerent lines, some of great rarity and value. It 
must agsun be noted that we do not list the actual titles, but the sources 
where the titles may be found. The fourth division of printed titles is the 
only one that can be classed under the head of pure or general bibliography. 
This we have entitled " Books, pamphlets, etc. (mosdy published in whole 
or in part in The Philippine Islandsy l4gS'l8g8y* The fact that we have 
used them, in whole or in part, as documents for our series constitutes the 
first reason for their appearance. We have introduced here a very few 
titles that we have not used, because of their scarcity or importance for the 
study of the history of the Philippine Archipelago, such as, for instance, 
Rivadeneira's Historic of 1601. A special feature of the last division is 
the location of the rarer tides. However, we have made no attempt to cite 
prices, for since American occupation, prices have been more or less arti- 
fically raised, and the present price is not a sure index of the value of the 
books. To many of the printed tides, we append critical and other notes; 
and frequent references to the various Philippine bibliographies admit of 
a study of the critical notes of others. In this portion of our work, as in the 
manuscript division, we aim rather at the practical, and our attempt is to 
furnish a good working bibliography, and not one calculated merely to meet 
the tastes of the bibliophile. 

We have personally examined most of the tides of the printed material 
listed by us, a process that has involved an immense amount of work, in- 
asmuch as the various books are not to be found in one collection. This has 
necessitated research in many libraries; and we are able to assert that no- 
where else have bibliographical aids to the study of the bibliography of the 
Philippine Islands been so extensively cited. We have made no attempt 
to list the many books that we have used for annotation, unless such books 
contain bibliographical information. Many general bibliographies and 
many special bibliographies contain Philippine titles. Many catalogues 

Digitized by 



of private libraries also contain titles. Especially is this true of libraries of 
Americana, which generally list some Magalhaes and Pigafetta material. 
While we have listed some libraries of Americana we make no eflFort to list 
all of them. It should also be noted that the ecclesiasrical provinces of 
the Philippines extended to China and other patrts of the Asiatic mainland, 
so that it is quite natural to expect that bibliographies of China and Japan 
and other parts of southern Asia should often contain I^ilippina. The 
student should also note that many collections of voyages, ecclesiastical 
books, etc., contain Philippine matter. Some of the titles cited contain 
veiy few items of Philippina, but some are of great importance. In the 
arrangement of the titles to books and pamphlets, we have adopted the 
strict chronological order. 

For a study of the early history of printing in the Philippines, and its de- 
velopment, the reader will find useful matter in Medina's Imprenta en Ma- 
nila (Santiago de Chile, 1896); and in Retana's Imprenta (Madrid, 1899), 
Introduction, col. 5-50. See also the rules of printing as published by the 
latter in vol. i of his Archivo, These rules were promulgated in Manila, 
February 16, 1857. It seems reasonably clear that the printing press was 
establidied in the Philippines as early as 1593, for in that year, Gomez 
Perez Dasmarinas licensed the printing of the Christian Doctrine in Taga- 
log and Chinese (see his letter of June 20, 15939 in our vol. ue, p. 68), 
although no copies of this have come down to the present day. It must be 
noted, however, that from the language of the letter above cited, it may be 
assumed that the printing press had been established before the year 1593. 
However, the implied reasoning of Perez and Giiemes {Adiciones^ pp. xxi- 
xxiv) following the statement of Beristain de Sousa, that the Arte j Focahu- 
lario de la lengua tagalapf ]uzn de Quinones was printed at Manila in 1581, 
cannot be supported. The real histoiy of printing in the Philippines, in 
idiich it seems that the religious orders had more to do than anyone else, 
has not yet been written, although it is worth careful study. 


The bibliography of MSS. forms the main part of the present volume. 
Important as is our citation of authorities citing Philippine tides, we believe 
this to be our chief contribution to Philippine bibliography. We do not 
hesitate to assert that we have presented more manuscript Philippine titles 
than all odier bibliographers together. In this we have naturally had the 
benefit of the work of all bibliographers and authors who have cited Philip- 
pine MSS., and to such we are naturally under obligations. However, we 
have ourselves personally examined the greater part of the MSS. cited by 
us, and thus are enabled to cite direcdy from the originals or our transcripts 

Digitized by 



from the origiiiab. Espectalty h this true of the MSS. dted from the Ar- 
cfahro de Imfias, at Sevilla; Aa&t of the Real Academia de la Historia, at 
Madrid^ other government archives of mat city^ me AfSS. helongmg to 
Ediiardo Navarro, O. S. A., of Valladolidy and those of the Colegio de Aga9- 
tmos of the same city; those belonging to Pablo PasteHv, S. J., at Sarria; 
those of the Vatican; those in the Biblioth^ue Nadonale, Pariv; those in the 
British Musemn; and in America, those in Lenox, the Library of Congress, 
and the Ayer Collection. The rest we have cited from any source where we 
have found them mentioned. In addition to the arduous research in the 
various archives and libraries, the examination of the various authorises 
citing MSS. has entailed severe and protracted labor. In this rese ar ch we 
have examined the following works: Sommervogel's Bibliotkeque; Blumen- 
tritt's Focabular; Huerta's Estado; Marcellino da Civezza's Saggio di 
Uhliografia; Retana's works (especially his Bihliografia de Mindanao^ and 
his Archivo)\ Vindel's Catdlogos; Perez's Catalogo\ Perez and Guemes's 
Adieiones; and others. When MSS. have been cited by several authori- 
des, we have so stated; as we have also done when MSS. personally exam- 
ined by us have been cited by others or transcribed for others. The con- 
stant effort has been to cite as many MSS. as possible, and to describe them 
as fully as possfl>le. In some cases we have been able to give only the most 
meager details. This is true of some of the MSS. cited from the various 
ardiives, and which we personally examined. In such cases this arises from 
the fact that our notes were taken rather for immediate use in our series 
dian for bibliographical purposes. All such MSS., however, have a value 
to die historical student, having been carefully selected from the thousands 
in the archives as worthy of publicadon. 

Our manuscript diviiuuii falls (|uite naturally mto two parts: I. Those 
MSS. which we have published, in whole or in part, in our series. IL 
Those manuscrijpts which we merely dte and describe in this bibliography, 
but have not publiriied in our series. The descripdon of the MSS. of the 
first division is in general more complete than those of the second, except 
for die MSS. from the Library of Congress and the Ayer CoUecdon. In 
all the MSS. of the first diviskm and in as maiiy as possible of the second, 
we have given the opening and dosing words; and in some of the most 
important we have indicated die line endings of the dtks. 

We have not oonsideted it advisable to list merely devotional writings, 
sermons, transladons of die Chrisdan Doctrine, Catechism, etc., of .vdnch 
diere are so many, both in Spanish and in die Filipino idioms and dialects. 
Neither have we cited all linguisdc MSS., of which also there are many. 
We have endeavored, however, to cite spedally those documents of politi- 
cal, dvil, sodal and economic value, our constant desire bdng to furnish

spiritual achievement and progress, either through governmental, or social 
and econo m ic (including ecclesiastical) activities. MSS. are cited ibr 
afanost eadi year of the Spanish regime; and dins the manuscript division 
forms in itself an epitome of Philippine history. 

Of some of the MSS. we are unable to give locations, as some have dis- 
appeared or our authorities have failed to give the place of conservation. 
But idiererer possible we have given location and pressmark. We make no 
p r ct enge at completeness. That is impossible in one single volume. But 
we do present a representative list of titles to MSS. gathered from many 
sooroes, and of distinct value. 

The most important archives and libraries where Philippine material 
(both printed and manuscript) is conserved are noted below, with some 
comments on contents and scope. 


Manila Archives,'- During the Spanish regime great confusion prevailed 
in the keeping of MSS. They were not even all housed in central archives. 
It is known that Governor Enrile took back to Spain with him many MSS. 
and printed documents (Pardo de Tavera, Noticias sobre la imprenta y el 
grtAaJof p. 8); and it is to be surmised that many documents now in private 
hands in the islands should by rights be in the archives. Each of the reH- 
gious orders had, as now, its own archives, where many valuable documents 
were conserved. The parish priests, as customary in all parts, kept the 
records of their churches, and each municipality generally made some pre- 
tense at keeping records. Yet in all instances, die system was not by any 
means perfected. During the Tagalog rebellion of 1896-97, during the 
Spanish-American war, and during the later Filipino revolution, many 
docoments and books were destroyed or looted by Spaniards, Filipinos, 
and Americans. Fortunately, some of the looted MSS. are gradually find- 
ing their way into American libraries and collections, where they will be 
adequately conserved. Since American occupation it has been the policy 
to gather aD public records into one central point, namely, at Manila. A 
new bureau was accordingly created, which was known as the Bureau of 
Archives, Patents, Copyri^ts, and Brands. This bureau lost its entity in 
1906, and is now a part of the Executive Bureau. The division of archives, 
etc, is under the management of Manuel de Iriarte, a Filipino of scholarly 
tastes, considerable executive ability, and thoroughness. Shordy after the 
creation of the bureau, one of the younger Filipino scholars, Qemente 

Digitized by 



Zulueta, a history professor in the new Filipino academy, was commissioned 
to go to Spain and other countries in order to gather information regarding 
Philippine MSS. This work came to a close on account of the death of Sr. 
Zulueta, and has not been resumed since. Notwithstanding that the ar- 
chives have been removed four times since American occupation, work has 
steadily progressed, and much order brought out of the chaos that formerly 
ruled. Much valuable information has been furnished to the government 
and to private parties, from the archives, esi>eciaUy on land matters and 
accounts. There are over 5,000 volumes of Philippine MSS. in the Manila 
archives, and many loose MSS., relating to the various departments of gov- 
ernment. The collection of records as reorganized since American occupa- 
tion consists of papers covering a period of over two centuries. "It em- 
braces papers referring to all subjects connected with the Spanish adminis- 
tration and all institutions affected by Spanish legislation. It embraces 
papers relating to the general administration of the archipelago, the munici- 
palities, civil and religious corporations, colleges, hospitals, pious founda- 
tions, banks and mercantile corporations, consulates, printing offices, 
colonies, penal institutions, Chinese immigration, patents and trademarks, 
personal records of officials, public charity and health, public instruction, 
post and telegraph, market-license contracts, cock pits, weights and meas- 
ures, ferries, opium, construction and repair of State, provincial, and munici- 
pal buildings; bridges, wagon-roads, railroads, and tramways; industrial, 
urbana, cedula, and Chinese head taxes; customs duties, revenue from 
stamped paper, revenue from vino and tobacco when these articles were 
monopolies of the Sute; sale of State lands, security fund, and various other 
matters." Among the documents are many important land records and 
many referring to the accounts and public funds.^ 

In regard to the papers of the religious orders, many have been removed 
from the islands by the friars, but many that are most valuable yet remain 
in their archives; and it is hoped that in the near future a thorough investi- 
gation may be made of the documents in the various convents. Through 
the aid of Sr. Iriarte, we have been able to publish one important MS. from 
the Dominican archives. 

Dr. T. H. Pardo de Tavera,of Manila, whom we have cited so frequently 
in this work, possesses a fine collection of Philippina, among which are 
many linguistic titles. Epifanio de los Santos, of Malolos, Bulakan, Luzon, 
also possesses a fine collection, said to number about 2,000 pieces, and which

Philippine Commission for matter regarding the aichives. Sr. Iriarte is, in the midst of his 
other duties, preparing an index of the more important MSS. in the archives, which will 
render research much more easy.

Retama ranks above that of Pardo de Tavera. Some of the collection of 
C. Zulueca has 'been sold; as has also a portion of the Rizal collection. 
Manuel Ponce also owns some Philippina. 


Jrchivo de Indias.-Theac archives are housed in the Lonja or Exchange 
at Sevilla. As their name indicates, they are the depot for the conservation 
of papers relating to the Spanish Indies, both West and East. The West 
Indies include all the Spanish possessions in the Americas; the East Indies, 
the Philippines, Moluccas, other islands, and parts of the Asiatic mainland. 
These archives (which are under charge of Pedro Torres Lanzas) are the 
most important in existence for Philippine study, both from the number 
and variety of the papers conserved therein. There are many thousands of 
documents dating from the period of Magalhaes's voyage to almost the end 
of the Spanish regime, and all are open to the student. These documents 
consist not only of MSS. but as well of printed pamphlets and broadsides, 
many of the greatest rarity. There are many duplicates and even some 
triplicates, etc., for in the old days in order to ensure arrival at their destina- 
tion, letters, reports, etc., were generally sent in duplicate, triplicate, and 
even quadruplicate, on diflFerent vessels, the report of one year often includ- 
ing that of the previous year, which had been sent before. 

Classification of documents is inadequate. The first general classifica- 
tion is into Audiencias, i.^., into the districts under the jurisdiction of the 
various tribunals of that name. Thus, there is the Audiencia de Quito, the 
Audiencia de Panama, the Audiencia de Mejico, and the Audiencia de Fili- 
pinas. The indexes rou^ly classify into secular and ecclesiastical, but 
the division is often not sharp, and many documents are strangely out of 
pbce. There is little individual listing of documents, and still less attempt 
at calendaring. Yet, since the documents are classified by subjects and 
periods, this arrangement furnishes a rough working guide. In research, 
however, one must examine every document of the period under investiga- 
tion, in order that no important material may escape. In the Philippine 
documents proper, there are four main divisions: those sent from Simancas; 
those entitled "Secretaiia de Nueva Espana;" those entitled merely "Audien- 
cia de Filipinas;" and the documents sent by die Ministry of War in 1887. 

The subdivision of each group is into the special heads under which the 
documents naturally classify. Thus, to take a concrete example: the first 
special head of the documents of the Audiencia de Filipinas is "Consultas 
originales correspondientes a dicha Audiencia" (f.^., "Original consulta- 
tions relating to said Audiencia"). The period embraced for this division 
is for the years 1 586-1 700; and the pressmark proper is "estante 67, cajon 

Digitized by 



6, legajos 1-3." "Estante" corresponds to "section," "cajon," to "shelf/' 
and "legajo" to "bundle** (there being in this case three legajos). The 
various bundles are wrapped in strong paper and tied -a method diat is 
somewhat hard on the MSS.; for since many of them are written and 
printed on the so-called rice paper, which has become britde with age, each 
handling of the bundle aids the natural process of disintegration of such 
documents. Hence some of our transcripts are now more valuable than 
the original from which they were made. 

Because of the importance of the Archivo de Indias for Philippine re- 
search, we give below the contents of the various indexes of Philippine 
documents. I. The documents sent from Simancas early in the nine- 
teenth century are divided first into those of secular and ecdesiasdcal 
character indiscriminately - 5 legajos; second, into documents of a 
secular character - 68 legajos; and third, into documents of an ecclesias- 
tical character - 20 legajos. To this division must be added three legajos 
also sent from Simancas that treat of the discovery, description, and popula- 
tion of the Philippines. II. Documents of the "Secretaria de Nueva 
Espana" - divided into three divisions as above, of 25, 171, and 39 l^ajos, 
respectively. III. Audiencia de Filipinas. This is divided first, into 
documents of a secular character - 670 legajos; second, into documents 
of an ecclesiastical character -66 legajos. IV. Documents sent by the 
Ministry of War in 1887. Two divisions as above, of 146 and 34 legajos 
respectively. This makes a total of 1,247 legajos treating entirely of the 
Philippines. To this must be added those documents in odier divisions 
that treat of the Philippines, such as the Audiencia de Mejico (orders and 
decrees sent to the vicerojrs, etc); the legajos treating of the Moluccas; 
papers in the division of justice and accounts; the division "Indiferente de 
Nueva Espana;" and others. The indexes of Philippine documents follow.

BihliaUca Nacional.'- This is located at Madrid, and is under charge of 
die eniinent Spanish scholar, Marcelino Menendez y Pelayo. This library 
is not especially rich in either Philippine MSS. or books, although it posses- 
ses a few of the rarer books. The MSS. are carefully indexed by title and 
pressmark. See Gallardo's Ensayo for a list of MSS. and books, among 
which are noted some of the MSS. of diis library. The books in the library 
are indexed and classified by authors by a system somewhat analogous to 
the modem card system, although much more clumsy. We have listed at 
least the most important of the Philippine MSS. of the library. 

Arehtvo-Historico Nacional.- These archives are located in the same 
bttildiiig as the above library, and are under the directorship of Vicente 
Vignau y Balester. The most important collection containing Philippine 
material is the Cedulario iniico. This consists of forty-one volumes of 
royal decrees sent to the Indies by the various Spanish monarchs. It is 
evidently a copy made for the record of the government. Many of the de- 
creet concern the Philippines, of which the last four volumes contain the 
greater nimiber, although some few are scattered through most of the re- 
maining volumes. No special order has been kept in the copying of the 
decrees of the Cedulario^ and investigation is a matter requiring patient 
plodding. Accompanying the Cedulario is a twenty-four volume calendar, 
which is of some aid. The calendaring is poorly done, being in some in- 
stances longer than the decree itself. Many of the decrees exist in dupli- 
cate in Sevilla, and doubtless in Manila as well. The archives also possess 

Digitized by 



a number of long expeiUntes concerning the expulsion of the Jesuits firom 
die Philippines. 

Rial Academia de la Historia.- This academy, which has had an appre- 
ciable effect on Spanish culture, is also located in Madrid. It is rich in 
Philippine titles, both printed and manuscript. Among the former are 
many of the rarest imprints. Chief among its papers are the Papeles de bs 
Jesuitas, or Jesuit papers. These were confiscated from the Jesuit con- 
vents at the time of the expubion, and number in all about 225 volumes of 
bound MSS., pamphlets, and broadrides. Many of these papers relate to 
the Philippines. These consist of letters from various misrionaries, reports 
on the missions, polemical writings, etc. Some of the reports on the 
islands and mission woric are among the most important and interesting 
records of the islands. As a rule they were made by comparatively well- 
trained men who were interested in many matters outside of their own nar- 
row sphere of mission work. We include in our series some of these reports. 
The Ventura del Arco transcripts to be described in this bibliography 
were almost entirely, if not wholly, made from these documents. The 
Salazar CoUecdon of MSS., also conserved in this library, contains a few 
documents treating of the Philippines. The famous collection of trans- 
cripts made by Juan Bautista Munoz is also owned by the Academy. These 
MSS. were transcribed by and for Munoz from various archives in Spain 
(government and private) and Portugal, in pursuance of the royal order 
given him by Carios III to write a history of Spanish discovery and con- 
quest. Special orders were issued to the Spanish public archives, then 
jealously guarded, to give Munoz every facility of research. It is to be 
regretted that the Spanish government saw fit to prohibit the publication of 
any of the work after the first volume.* The tide to the index of this col- 
lecdon reads as follows: "Index to the collecdon of MSS. belonging to the 
history of the Indias written by Don Juan Baudsta Muiioa and found at his

and Cortes, and Don Cenon Alonso, chief official of the portfolio of Grace

members of the Real Academia de la Historia.'' This index lists the fol- 
lowing important MSS.: Historia de las islas e indios de Bisayas^ by Al-

that he located many important MSS.y among them the copy of Alexander 
VTs bull Imer c^etera, of May 3, 1493, and some of the important MSS. 
oooserved in the Poituguese archives. 

Museo^BMiaUca de Ubramar,- This museum and library was founded 
in Madrid, in 1887 at the close of the Philippine exposidon of that year; 
and its institution was due primarily to the effbits of Victor Balaguer, then 
minisrer of die colonies (see his Islas Filipinas^ Madrid, 1895). The 
mnseom contains the exhibits of the exposition which were left as a perma- 
nent deposit. They form an excellent display of Philippine products and 
cnrios, which give a good idea of the progress of the arts and sciences in the 
idandsy the methods employed in industry, etc. The collections of Philip- 
pine woods and shells are especially fine. There are a few paindngs by 
Filipino artists, which do not show any preeminent merit, one of which is 
a copy of a Murillo. Concerning the library, we translate as follows from 
Balaguer, ui supra: ''The library of the Museo de Ultramar consists of 
series and collections of books that treat exclusively of the colonies, many 
of them printed in those lands, and all relating to matters, events, and his- 
tories of countries conquered across seas by our glorious ancestors. This 
library was formed on die base of that possessed by the ministry of the 
colonies, together with die works which have been gadiered, book by book, 
by dint of the persevering zeal and benedicdne toil of the board at its head; 
die coUecdon of the precious and chosen volumes and documents (a true 
treasure of bibliographical jewels) owned by Don Pascual Gayangos; and 
the acquisition of the many and very rare books formerly owned by Don 
Jttsto Zaragoza; two fine colonial libraries obtained by the Council of 
Filipmas and generously yielded by diat corporation in order to swell the 
library of the above insdtute, which on that account has been able to com- 

Digitized by 



plete its own until it is the first and only one of its kind in Spain." The 
collection consists of books and MSS. on all the Spanish colonies. There is 
a fine collection of Philippine titles, among which are some of the rarest. 
The MSS. are few in number, but are choice. Among the Philippine MSS. 
are Riquel's Relacion^ the Relacion of Artieda, a Relacion by Legazpi, and 
the Valdes Tamon MS., all of which we publish (the last only in extract). 
The librarian in charge of this institution is Francisco de P. Cousino y Vaz- 
quez. See the Catalogo of the library, which we list, post, 

Bihlioteca Real,- Tht royal library is located in the royal palace in 
Madrid, and is under charge of the Conde de las Navas, an author of some 
repute in Spain. Its shelves contain but very few Philippine titles, but what 
it has is valuable. Among its MSS. it lists a copy of Chirino's unpublished 
Historia; a copy of Sanchez's Relacion^ presented to Felipe II, about 1590; 
and a copy of Valdes Tamon's Relacion. 

Deposito hidrografico,- The principal office of this department is located 
in Madrid, and there is a branch office at Cadiz. Many of the documents 
are transcripts or duplicates of those now at Sevilla. The collecdon of 
maps is doubtless much greater than that of the A. de I.; especially for the 
last century of Spanish rule, and many of the late maps are probably printed. 
This bureau was for many years under the charge of Martin Fernandez de 
Navarrete, who worked enthusiastically to increase the usefulness of the de- 
partment, and caused many transcripts to be made. The documents col- 
lected by him are now known as the Navarrete Collection. Permission to 
carry on invesrigadons in this bureau must be obtained through the gov- 
ernment, either directly or by means of the intervendon of the minister of 
the country of the applicant. 

Archivo de Simancas,- As indicated by their name, these archives are 
located in the village of Simancas. They are housed in an old casde on the 
borders of the old kingdom of Leon, which was set apart by Carlos I and 
Felipe II for the conservation of state papers. They are at present under 
the directorship of Julian Paz, a man of great energy and an enthusiasdc 
worker, who is endeavoring to reduce the chaodc disorder of the archives 
to a well-ordered system. It has been esdmated that these archives contain 
some 33,000,000 documents. During the French invasion in the Napo- 
leonic wars, many of the MSS. were scattered, burned, and looted, many 
being carried oflF to France and deposited in the royal library. Most but 
not all of these latter were restored later in the century. As already 
stated many documents were removed thence in the early part of the nine- 
teenth century to A. de I., and there are still many more that should be 
removed to the same place. Most of the Philippine documents are state 
consultadons, etc.; but there are some duplicates of the documents in A. de

I. We have published some few MSS. from these archives. An extended 
research would result in the finding of much valuable matter. 

Archivo ie Alcala de Henares." Monttto y Vidal cites several MSS., 
some of which he gives in full, from these archives. Although no personal 
examination of these archives has been made, it is quite probable that there 
is nodiing of special importance in them. The project has been broached 
of removing all the MSS. to Madrid (as well, indeed the MSS. of all the 
other government archives), in order that they may be conserved in one 
central point, and thus research be facilitated as in the Bibliotheque Na- 
tionale, in Paris. 

CoUgto de AgustinoSy FaUadolid." This convent and college was founded 
in the eighteenth century, especially for the training of missionaries for the 
Philippines. On this account it is often called Cdegio de Filipinos. In 
the library of this college are found some few rare Philippine titles, mainly 
chronicles and histories; and Diaz's MS., Conquistas de las Islas PhilipinaSy 
dated 1720. More noteworthy is the collecdon in the same convent belong- 
ing to Eduardo Navarro, O. S. A., one of the foremost Augustinian scholars 
in Spain. Father Navarro's collecdon of books shows the various divi- 
sions of history, biography, description, linguisdcs, religion, natural science, 
government and politics, statistics, and bibliography. While this, collec- 
tion contains some few of the old chronicles and older linguistic titles, the 
greater part is rather modem. The chief gems among the MSS. are Agus- 
tin Maria de Castro's Osario venerable^ and Martinez de Zuniga's Estadismo. 
Father Navarro also possesses some few hundreds of transcripts that were 
made in A. de I., many of which we have published from our own tran- 
scripts made from the same originals. Father Navarro has been an earnest 
worker in the Philippine field, and has written several books and pamphlets. 
He has lately been transferred to the Madrid convent of his order. Rev. 
Tirso Lopez of the Valladolid convent edited Diaz's chronicle from the 
original MS. 

Retana, CatalogOy p. xiii, says that the Augustinian convent and colegio 
de b Vid (Burgos) does not possess as many books as the Valladolid con- 
vent, but that it is rich in chronicles and vocabularies. 

CoHections at Dominican convents.- At the convent of Ocaiia, Toledo, 
the Dominicans have some important Philippine books and MSS.; but we 
have not seen this collection. At the Avila convent of the order, are some of 
the rarest chronicles, among them the Historia of Diego CoUantes. 

Collection of the Compama General de Tahacos de Filipinas.- This is the 
brgest and best collection of Philippina in existence. It is located in the 
offices of the Company at Barcelona, and is due to the initiative of the direct- 
or, Oemente Miralles de Imperial, who began to make his collections in 

Digitized by 



1883, with the intention of amassing into one coUection all available books 
on the Philippines, at least those written in the Spanish language. In 1894 
he entered into relations with Retana and Vindel. Since 1896, he has 
bought many books from European booksellers outside of Spain. The 
librarian in charge of the collection is Jose Sanchez Garrigos, from whom 
the information regarding this collection is in part derived. According to 
Retana's latest bibliographical work, Aparato hihliografico^ which is die 
catalogue of this collection, it contains 4,623 different tides. In 1900, the 
Company purchased the magnificent collection of Retana, which consisted 
of 2,697 tides, which the latter claims that he sold at a sacrifice. The du- 
plicates obtained with Retana's Collection, the Company has sold. Since 
it has not been the policy of the Company to acquire original MSS., it has 
disposed of most if not all of such that came into its possession. On the 
other hand, the Company possesses transcripts from originals in A. de I., 
amounting to 34,000 pliegQs, or 68,000 leaves. The work of gathering 
transcripts was begun in accordance with the suggestion of Retana, in 1895, 
and the work was given in commission to Vicente Llorens Asensio, of the 
staff of A. de I. in 1899. These transcripts the Company has generously 
loaned to Pablo Pastells, to whom they were of immense use in editing his 
edition of Colin's Labor evangelica. Of books, there are in this incompa- 
rable collection, 1,702 tides in linguistics; and of newspapers, 127 of the 
182 (either in whole or in part of the entire issue) published in the islands, 
besides all the old chronicles. Volumes in this collection have come from 
the following collections: Soweleski, Ramirez, Duque de Alba, Duque de 
Durcal, Fermin Caballero, Marques de Liedena, Duque de T'Serdaes, 
Salva-Heredia, the Emperor Maximilian, Sancho Rayon, Medina, Cabezas 
de Herrera, Barrantes, General Terrero, Tiscar, Zapater, and odiers 
(many of them having come through the Retana Collection). All the books 
are carefully bound, and among them are seen some celebrated bindings. 
See Aparato bibliogrdficOf i, Retana's introduction; and Pastells's edition 
of Colin's Labor evangelical i, pp. 236-238. The Company veiy generously 
allows research among its treasures. Since American occupation, it should 
be said that more attention has been paid to the collection of foreign 

Pastells's Collection." One of the best known workers in the field of Phil- 
ippina is Pablo Pastells, S. J., of Sarria. Pastells was for many years a 
missionaiy in the Philippines, and was at one time the teacher of Dr. Rizal. 
He collaborated with Retana in his edition of Combes's Historia de Min- 
ianao y Jolo. Some of the letters written by him concerning Mindanao 
contain valuable ethnological material. He has also contributed a few notes 
to our series. His chief work, however, is his edition of Colin's Labor 

Digitized by 



evangelical published at Barcelona, in 1904, in three vols. As above stated, 
he had the use of the transcripts gathered by the C. G. de T. de F., many 
of which he has reproduced in his footnotes. In his own collection Father 
Pastdls p ossesses a few of the old chronicles, and of important MSS. that of 
Mnrillo Velarde's Historia. In addition he had the use of the MS. of Chi- 
riDo's unpublished Historia^ which was either lent or given to him by Ramon 
Martinez Vigil, O. P., now bishop of Oviedo in Spain, but formerly stationed 
in die Philippines. 

Other Spanish Collections^- According to Retana {Aparato hihL^ i, p. xxxv), 
there were few collectors in Philippina until 1898. Agustin Maifa de 
Castro had an excellent collection as early as 1780, especially of the 
wridngiB of Augustinians. Francisco Zapater, who was in the Philippines 
in the middle of the nineteenth centuiy, possessed many books. After 
his death in Zaragoza, whither he had removed his residence, many of his 
books were bought by Retana. Jose de Keyser y Munoz possessed some ex- 
ceUent MSS., of which Retana acquired two. Vicente Barrantes's collec- 
tion obtained more prestige than it deserved. It consisted of about 600 
tides, most of which were ordinary and all of which were not in the best 
condition.* At his death the collection was sold to Vindel. Some of the 
MSS. and the comidos were bought for the Ayer Collection, and others of 
die coDection were sold to the C. G. de T. de F. The collection of Juan 
Alvarez Guerra, numbering less even than that of Barrantes, was sold piece 
by piece while its owner was still living. Some were purchased by the C. G. 
de T. de F., and others were bought by Vindel, whence some have come to 
the United States. A small collecdon was also possessed by Jose Velarde 
y Naveda, an official of the colonial government. Antonio Graino, of the 
firm of Victoriano Suarez, in Madrid, has been collecting Philippina. 
He has some of the rarest of tides, among which is the only copy known 
of Arte y re^as de la lengua tagala, by San Jose (Bataan, 16 10). He also 
po sses s es two copies of CoUantes's Historia, and some valuable MSS., 
among them a copy of Viana's Demostracion deplorable. His object is ulti* 
mately to sell these books, but he is waiting until the prices go up, and mean- 
while is endeavoring to obuin all the copies possible of all the rare books 
in order that he may control the price. The collections of the Marques de 
Jerez de los Caballeros, and of the Duque de T'Serdaes, bodi oi 
Sevifla, contained some good Philippine ddes. The universities of SeviUa 
and Barcelona, and the provincial library at Toledo possess a few of the 
older historical tides.

Archives and lihraries in Portugal 
The most important archives in Portugal are the national archives called 
Torre do Tombo, which are located in Lisbon. These contain some Philip- 
pine MSS.y and many MSS. relating to the Portuguese settlements in the 
Orient. Some of the Munoz transcripts were made from documents in these 
archives. The public libraij of Lisbon or the Biblioteca Nacional, also 
located in Lisbon, contains a few Philippine titles among its printed books, 
as well as a few MSS. The Portuguese archives are a prolific source of 
information for the Moluccas Islands and the Asiatic mainland. 

Archives and libraries in Italy 

Archivio del Vaticano,- This is the most important of the archives in 
Italy, and investigation is open to all. They contain many important col- 
lections that have come from many sources. There is less Philippine ma- 
terial, however, than one might reasonably expect. The greater part of 
the Hiilippine MSS. consists of the copies of papal bulls and briefs; although 
there are some reports, such as the important relation of Alonso Sanchez, 
S. J., made about 1590. There is also some little matter in regard to the 
episcopal visit of regulars, which was waged so fiercely in the islands and in 
Spain. The indexes of the archives are poor and research is consequently 

Biblioteca del Vaticano,- Tht libraiy of the Vatican is quite separate 
from the archives. Like the latter it is extremely rich in the many impor- 
tant collections conserved therein. Considerable confusion is manifest, 
and all the collections are not yet adequately catalogued. There are some 
rare Philippine titles, but Philippina is not extensive. Reuna, /m- 
prenta^ col. 50, citing from Agustin Maria de Castro's Osario^ says that 
copies of all the printed volumes mentioned in that MS. were sent to Rome 
in 1766. We did not see those books, although they may be in the library. 
Judging from a survey of the material in both the library and the archives 
of the Vatican, one is forced to the conclusion that direct communication 
between Rome and the islands was not very frequent. An examination 
of the archives of the generals of the various orders might reveal more clearly 
the channel through which the communications flowed. 

Other collections in Rome.- There must be some material in Propaganda 
Fide, but it is difficult to gain access to the shelves of that institution. In 
the Biblioteca de Vittorio Emanuele, which contains many MSS. from sup- 
pressed convents, especially on the Jesuit missions in China, there appears 
to be no Philippine material. The nearest approach to it is a manuscript 
map, by Joseph Somera, of the Palaos in 17 10 (see our vol. xli, p. 53, where 
we reproduce this in photographic facsimile).

BiUiaUca Amhrosiana,-T)m is one of the most famous libraries in the 

worid. It was founded in Milan in 1609 by Cardinal Federigo Borromeo, 

who sent scholars into all the European countries to buy rare and valuable 

books and MSS. Of books the libraiy conubs about 175,0009 and of MSS. 

over 8/xx>. It contains veij few Hiilippine books, and those of no special 

rarity. It is chiefly interesting to the student of Philippina because of 

the Italian relation of Magalhaes's voyage by Antonio Pigafetta. In regard 

to this MS. and the Ambrosian Library see fost^ p. 144, and Robertson's 

Magellan's voyage around the worU^ ii, '* Bibliography." There is also a 

copy of Alonso Sanchez's report, as well as several minor documents, in 

this collection. The Breda Library of Milan contains a few rare Pigafetta 

titles. — 


BiUiaheque Nationeie.^Tht Bibliotheque Nationale is the only library 
in France to be considered by the student of Philippina. In the printed 
books department are found many of the rare Philippine titles. These will 
be found listed m the catalogue of printed books now under process of com- 
pibtiofi. In the manuscripts department, the two chief treasures are the 
two French Pigafetta MSS. (see post^ p. 240, and Robertson's Magellan's 
voyage around the world, ii, *' Bibliography"). Some of the liiilippine MSS. 
are probably among those looted by the French armies from the Simancas 
archives, which were not restored to Spain with the MSS. sent back to that 
country. Worthy of menrion is also the reladon by the so-called Genoese 
pilot of Magalhaes's voyage. Cataloguing is carefully done and research 
is much more easy than in the Spanish and Italian archives. 


British Museum.- Ab on most subjects, the British Museum contains 
good collections of Philippine printed material and MSS. Among the first 
are many of the rare chronicles and histories (of some of them there are two 
or more copies), and many of the rarest pamphlets. The MSS. are mainly 
in die Spanish language, but there are a few in En^ish. Among the best of 
the latter are Dampier's account, and Dalrymple's Plan for an attack on 
the southern islands. The Spanish MSS. are catalogued in part in Pascual 
Gayangos's Catalogue of the Spanish MSS, in the British Museum. They 
were acquired in large part in various sales, one of which was the sale of the 
Carley Castle Collection. There are also a number of manuscript maps, 
irfiich have some interest. 

Mention must also be made of the Phillipps Collection which is con* 
served at Chekenham, England. This contains the Nancy MS. of Pigafet* 
ta's relation (see post, pp. 239, 240; and Robertson's Magellan's voyage 
around the world).

Other European cdlections 

A letter from the director of the Netherlands archives at The Hague 
reports that there is no distinctive section of the archives devoted to Philip- 
pine MSS. Most of the papers are written in the Dutch language, and 
man^ treat of the Dutch expeditions to the Orient and the Dutch Orienul 
possessions. It is quite probable that many MSS. of the East Indies con- 
tain references to the Philippines. 

Retana {Imprenta\ and Pardo de Tavera {BihU fil.^ p. 9), say that the 
University of Leyden contains a good collection of Philippine books and 
documents, as does also the national library of Berlin. 

Retana also notes that Blumentritt's collection is rather large, and has 
a practical value. It contains many of the works printed outside of Spain, 
especially the recent scientific dtles. 

Retana {Imprenta^ cols. 50, 51), records that a Russian imperial order of 
November 13, 1787, requested the captain-general of the Philippines to send 
Filipino grammars and vocabularies to Russia, and that the request was 


Bihlioteca Nacional,^ We have made no personal ezaminadon of this 
library, but from the close connection of Mexico and the Philippines until 
the Mexican revolt, one would naturally expect to find many Philippine 
documents in Mexico. Our first inquiries, however, resulted only in the 
report that there were no Philippine MSS. whatever in the Biblioteca 
Nacional. But just as our volume is going to press. Dr. H. E. Bolton, of 
Texas State University (now making invesdgarions in Mexico for the Car- 
negie Institurion), reports that the Philippine matter in this library is con- 
tained in three volumes. One of these (consisting of 755 pages) is enritled 
"Ano de 1669. Gen.^ Franc.^ Garcia del Fresno. Traslado de los Autos 
que precedieron p.* encomendarie los nat.* Del pu.® de Vigan y sus sugetos

"Fragmentos de la Historia de Filipinas del P. F. Juan de la CoiKrepcion, 
y Copia de la de China del P.® Jesuita Guzman." We are also indebted for 
the following informarion regarding Philippine material in other Mexican 
archives to Dr. Bolton. 

Archivo General y Publico,- The basis of these archives was that of the 
superior government of the Mexican viceroys, to which belonged almost 
all the documents treating of the Philippines. There is considerable ma- 
terial in the secrion entitled '^Reales Cedulas." This section consists of 
210 bound volumes of original cedulas and orders addressed to the viceroys 
by the Spanish monarchs for the years 1609-1821. Cedulas relating to the 

Digitized by 



PhilippineSy and treating of many different matters^ are found in almost 
rwery Tolume. Many treat of the Acapulco galleon, the general commerce 
of die Philippines, and funds raised in Mexico for the islands. The section 
entitled "Correspondencia de los Virreyes/' and consisting of 244 volumes, 
contains for the period 1755-1821, a chronological file of the reports of the 
▼icero3r8 to the Spanish office. Many of these relate to the Philippines. 
The subjects dealt with in the ten communications touching the Philippines 
in die first volume are t]rpical. These are as follows: the despatch of the 
Acapulco galleon; procedure in case of prizes; appointment of the arch- 
bbhop of Manila; permit to go to China; regulations for the sale of goods 
brought in the galleon at the fair in Acapulco; mode of remitting royal 
despatches from Mexico to the islands; and remittance of money for the 
building of the Manila hospital. The secdon endded ''Filipinas" com- 
prises about sixty volumes. The greater part of the documents of this 
section consist of correspondence of the viceroy with the following: the 
governor of the Philippines; the castellan of Acapulco; the port officials 
of San Bias; mission authorides, both of Mexico and the Philippines; the 
tribunal of the Real Consulado of Manila; and various officials of the royal 
exdiequer of Mexico. In addidon, there are reports of the proceedings 
of the Audiencias of Manila and Mexico, and expedientes reladng to va- 
rious miscelbneous matters. The various documents are roughly classified 
chronologically. The matters most frequendy met in the correspondence 
are: current events in the Philippines; trade reguladons; the Acapulco 
galleon; remittance of situados; mission funds and supplies; transporta- 
tion of missionaries; recniidng of soldiers; and financial and military 
reports. None of these classes of papers seems to be complete for the period 
covered. The correspondence of the governors occasionally contain val- 
uable reladons of the events of the islands: e.g.f an extended report (1755), 
of die enipdon of the volcano of Taal (with a map); the report of 1755 con- 
cerning the expubion of the infidel Chinese from the Parian, and the Moro 
raids; and the reports of 1757 concerning the Moro raids, the recepdon at 
Manfla of the embassy from the Moro sultan, Ali-Mudin, and the fire in 
the Parian. Other secdons of these archives containing Philippine mate- 
rial are: "Impresos Oficiales;" "Marina;" ''Misiones;" "Califomias;" 
and "Historia." In a general way, all the subjects mendoned above are 
scattered through all these secdons, but yet there is some diffierendadon. 
The secdon of Marina pardculariy contains much material concerning the 
movements of vessels, whether of trade or war, between Mexico and the 
islands (this material being found for the most part in the volumes devoted 
to Acapulco and San Bias). The small amount of material in the section 
"Historia" is mainly of the class just described. In "Impresos Oficiales"

are found numerous printed edicts, drculaiSy ordinances, and reguladons, 
concerning Philippine trade in the d^iteenth century. V<d. iv contains 
the Ordimnaai ie la Compama ie Conurcio formaJa en la Ciudad de 
Manila^ IJSS* V^^* ^ ^f ^iu« ^^^ ^ ^^ die section "Misiones*' contain 
Philippine material. In voL viii arc documents relating to the obra fia 
of the college of San Andres (1789); and matter regarding the supplies of 
the Recollect province of San Nicolis. Vob. iv and ix contain accounts 
by missionaries (i 665-1 796). Vol. xzii of the section "Califemias" con- 
tains correspondence with the governor concerning the danger of an Eng- 
lish expedition to the Philippines (1802). Vol. xxvi of the same secdon 
consists almost entirely of royal cedulas reladve to Dominican and Augus- 
rinian missions in the Califbmias and Philippines (1634-1751). In voL 
xlvii are numerous documents relative to Mourelle*s voyage ''by the new 
route of the equinocdal'* (1780-1781). These include the diaries of Mou- 
relle and other officers of the expedidon. 

Museo Nacional.- The most valuable papers concern the missions. 
The best of these are found in the Franciscan convent papers, which com- 
prise about seventy-five large legajos and over two hundred bound volumes 
(the latter of litde importance) treating of miscellaneous matters. About 
one-third of the legajos contain valuable reports and letters from the Fran- 
ciscans in the Philippines, which are mainly addressed to the commissaries- 
general of Nueva Espaiia. Some of these letters are dated as eariy as 1632. 
but most of them are of the eighteenth century. Some of the reports treat 
of the religious aflPairs of the endre Orient as well as of the Philippines, 
Considerable matter reladng to the ecdesiasdcal history of the islands 
is to be found in a series of five volumes endded Manuscritos varios and 
belonging to the Lancaster- Jones CoUecdon. These papers, many of 
which evidendy came from the archives of the archbishopric of Mexico, 
date from 1567 to 1 81 9. The Museo Nacional also contains a copy of 
Rojo's Operaeiones del artobisfo de Manila (Sept. 7, 1 763; see post^ pp. 231, 
232). In legajo i of a series of seven legajos is found the journal of the 
same archbishop (Dec. 23, 1762; see posty p. 128). Accompanying this 
is a brief notice of the death and funeral of Rojo. 

We also list five MSS. belonging to one Angel Barber in the City of 
Mexico, whose ddes we obtained through the courtesy of Camillus Crivelli, 
S. J., of Mexico. 

United States 

Within the United States are several notable coUecdons of Philippina. 
Both Harvard and Boston Public libraries are rich in the old Philippine 
chronicles and histories. Neither library ever made any special attempt 
at such coUecdons, and the books found their way to the library shelves in 

Digitized by 



▼arious manners. At least one of the books in the Boston Public Library 
was part of die Bowdttch Collection^ and others are in the Ticknor Collec- 
tion. There are no MSS. in Harvard, and Boston Public numbers less 
dian half a dozen. The State Library of Boston can boast only of a royal 
decree of Madrid, September 30, 1639, in answer to a petition of Grau y 
Monfakon; and another decree of Madrid, July 10, 1786, regarding com- 
merce-both printed. They were acquired in a recent shipment from 
Mexico. The Massachusetts Historical Library, also in Boston, owns a 
copy of Murillo Velarde's Historia. 

The John Carter Brown Library, of Providence, now in possession of 
Brown University, contains some of the rarest of Philippine books, but no 
MSS. It contains some of the rarest Pigafetta and Magalhaes material 
(see Robertson's Magellan's voyage around the worU\ die rare Motga, 
various editions of Leonardo de Argensola, several editions of Gonzalez 
de Mendoza's Historian etc. 

Lenox,-- The Lenox branch of the New York Public Library contains 
a goodly list of die rarest and most valuable Philippine chronicles and his- 
tories (see Bulletin^ iv, no. I, 1900). There are also some good Philippine 
MSS. These latter belong to the Rich Collection, which was purchased 
from Mr. Obadiah Rich, die well-known book collector, about the jrear 1848. 
The MSS. of this coUecdon (see Bulletin^ v, July, 1901) relate mainly to 
Spanish America. Its source is given as follows: "The greater part of this 
coUecticMi was formed by Don Antonio de Uguina, of Madrid. It com- 
prises almost everydiing of interest that was <5ollected for his friend Munoz 
for die Historia del Nuevo Mundoy of which only the first volume was pub- 
lidicd. Uguina was also the friend of Navarrete, and fiimished him with 
many of the materiak for his Coleccion de Viages, After die death of 
Uguina, his MSS. were purchased by M. Temaux Compans, of Paris, who 
had already collected many MSS. on Spanish America. The whole col- 
lecdon afterwards came into die possession of O. Rich, who added diese 
to some MSS. from die collecdon of Lord Ktngsboroug^, and a few pro- 
cured by himself in Spain." In all the collecdon forms 142 f<^io and 
quarto volumes, bound in morocco. No. 6 of this coUecdon consists of a 
series of papers on die possession of the Moluccas. In regard to the docu- 
ments that purport to come from the Munoz Collecdon, see ante^ p. 30. 
The presence of these documents raises the interesting quesdon as to which 
sre the real Muiioz documents. There are copies of the Loarca Relacion 
bodi m Lenox and in R. A. de la H. On the other hand, the first vol. of 
Aldna's Relacion, which die Traggia index at R. A. de la H. says is miss- 
ing ixom the collecdon, is found in the Lenox library. The question can 
only be satisfactorily solved by a deuiled examinadon of both the MSS. of 

Digitized by 



R. A. de la H. and Lenox. We lean rather to the theory that Munoz's tran- 
tcripts were made in duplicate. 

There are a few rare Philippine titles in Astor branch of the N. Y. Public 
library. See the Bulletin for 1900. Both Lenox and Astor contain much 
matter for bibliographical study. 

The Hispanic Society of New York City, lately inaugurated by Mr. 
Archer M. Huntington, has valuable Philippine books and MSS. However, 
as die collection has not yet been opened to scholars, it is impossible to 
state the extent of Philippine material. Among the books are some valuable 
linguistic works, and some of the earliest chronicles of the islands. 

In Philadelphia, three libraries possess rare Philippina. The Library 
Company owns a copy of Murillo Velarde's Historia, and an Extracto his- 
torial. The Widener branch of the Public Libraiy owns a set of Concep- 
cion's Historia. The American Philosophical Society owns a copy of 
Salazar's Historia. 

Library of Congress." For die extent and scope of the various coUecriont 
in the Libraiy of Congress, see die bibliography issued by the Library, con- 
taining A. P. C. Griffin's List of books and P. Lee Phillips's List of maps. 
The collection of books contains a number of rare ddes, although there are 
numerous ddes that the libraiy should have which are lacking. The only 
libraiy in the United States that can at all compete with it, so far as general 
Philippina is concerned, is the Ayer Collecdon in Chicago. It has but 
few MSS. treadng direcdy of the Philippines; but does possess all the 
records that were conserved in the island of Guam. These treat in general 
of die Marianas Islands. Unfortunately, they were conserved in a place 
that was liable to visitation by the sea at times, and consequendy the MSS. 
are in a poor state of preservadon, even most of the more recent. A letter 
to Herbert Putnam, Librarian of Congress, conserved with the Guam MSS., 
states that die archives of Guam contained in August, i897-AugU8t, 1900, 
documents of at least three classes: I. Trials and residencias. The most 
interesting is diat of Lieutenant-General Don Antonio Pimentel, who gave 
provisions to Woods Rogers in 17 10 just after the latter had captured the 
Spanish galleon "Nuestra Senora de la Encamacion" off the coast of Lower 
California. With Rogers at that dme was Alexander Selkirk, who had but 
ceeendy been rescued from the island of Juan Fernandez. II. Inventory 
of effecci belonging to die Jesuits at the dme of their expulsion. This 
diows their flourishing condidon and bears tesdmony to their introducdoo 
of useful arts. III. Letter books of various governors stored in the gov* 
emment house, Sept. 26, 1831-March 4, 1892, 11 vols. These letters con- 
tain social and economic infoimadon, records die earthquakes, etc. There 
is one volume marked "Department of War" (April 25, 1863-September 

Digitized by 



i6, 1875); and a file of Manila newspapers which are in poor condition. 
The library possesses a number of broadsides, circulars, etc., some of which 
were issued by Aguinaldo. There are also five numbers of the manuscript 
newspaper published by die insurgents during the revolution against the 
American government. The serious student of Philippina must have 
recourse to the treasures of the Library of Congress. 

The library of the War Department in Washington possesses a number 
of Philippine titles. The only rare work is Combes's Historia. 

Jyer ColUction.-ThvB is a private collection which is owned by Edward 
£• Ayer, of Chicago. As soon as the American victory in Manila Bay was 
cabled to the United States, Mr. Ayer, who has long been an enthusiastic 
collector of Americana, ordered his agents both at home and abroad to buy 
Philippina. As a consequence, his collection ranks among the best in 
the world in point of value. While it does not include as many ordinary 
book titles as the Library of Congress, it contains about as many of the 
rarer, and has some that the Library of Congress does not possess. Many 
of the books (as well as MSS.) were purchased from die C. G. de T. de F., 
and were fbrmeriy owned by W. £. Retana. In regard to MSS., this col- 
lecticm shows the best material outside of A. de I. The MSS. embrace 
almost the entire period of die Spanish regime, and while not so remarkable 
in point of number of individual pieces, it is remarkable in point of value. 
To mendon only a few of the more important MSS., one finds here the 
WhaoL MSS., which contain so much useful and exact economic and gov- 
ernment material; the Bemaldez MS., and another MS. of the early nine- 
teendi century in which is found much that is eictremely valuable; the Anda 
MSS.; die ecclesiastical MSS., which throw li^t on the troubles between 
the secular and regular branches of the clergy; die Ventura del Arco tran- 
scripts, copied from R. A. de la H.; and finally the two Rizal MSS., 
which throw not a litde li^t on Rizal's life. Some of the MSS. were for- 
merly in the Retana and Barrantes collections. Many were purchased from 
Vindel, and some through Chadenat. All die MSS. are fully listed post. 
Mention should be made here of the bamboo rolls in the collection, on which 
are scratched in Mangyan characters a number of Mangyan song^. These 
are translated into Tagalog by three Mangyans, Bocon, Damdam, and 
Cobla, and an English verrion has been made by Fletcher Gardner. The 
roils are accompanied by papers on which arc written the songs in the three 
languages. Only the Mangyan is written on the rolls. The songs are 
mainly begg^lg and courting songs. These rolls are valuable ethnological 
contributions. With unexampled generosity, Mr. Ayer, of his own voli- 
tioo, threw open his magnificent collection to us in the preparation of our 
series, allowing the ftee use of his material in any way we deemed best.

Unwersiiy of Calif omia.'- Frof. Bernard Moses replies to our in- 
qniiy that the only MSB. ''relating to the Philippines" in the lihraiy of 
the University, ''are copies of such as relate to affairs under American 
administration.'* Speaking of the documents at Manila, he says: "We 
had a plan to publish some of the most ancient of these papers, and thus 
save them from the inevitable destruction that is before them in that cli- 
mate, but the original commission was broken up before we were able to 
cany out this design." 

Liland Stanford, Jr., University.- This library possesses no rare printed

We have yet to touch upon a few special features, either belonging to the 
realm of bibliography or closely connected therewith. 

Linguistics.-- Books printed in the various languages and dialects of the 
Philippine Islands, and grammars and lexicons, form a considerable part 
of many collections. The C. G. de T. de F. has more linguistic titles than 
any other collection, numbering 1,702. These include 79 conidos or ro- 
mances, 17 other works resembling conidos. Many of these titles had 
formerly belonged to W. £. Reuna. Pardo de Tavera possesses many 
linguistic titles, his collection extending to all die language of Oceanica. 
The Ayer Collection shows some hundreds of titles (which were mainly 
gathered by Dr. Doherty), among which are many that are rare. The 
library of Peabody Institute of Baltimore, which possesses the scarce third 
volume of Mas, and a Mallat with the atlas, makes a specialty of collecting 
linguistic titles. As yet the collection is small, but it is very choice, and 
numbers some of the rarest titles. It is gratifying to note that several 
American scholars have taken up the systematic study of the languages and 
dialects of die I%ilippines. The work done by Dr. Frank R. Blake, of 
Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, holds chief place. A letter from Dr. 
Blake dius describes die work and its results: "The work in Philippine 
languages begun at die Johns Hopkins University in 1901 is sdll going on. 
It was designed to give instrucdon in the principal Philippine languages, 
and publish ardcles on various important topics of Philippine grammar. 
Beginning with 1901, instrucdon has been given in Tagalog, Bisayan, and 
Ilokan, as well as in the kindred idiom, Malay. A series of lectures on die 
native tribes of the Philippines was also given twice during the period. A 
•dentific Tagalog grammar has been prepared, and manuals of other im- 
portant dialects have been projected. A number of ardcles on various topics 
of Philippine philology have been published by myself and my students. 
Dr. W. G. Seiple, now professor of Hebrew in the Reformed Church college 
in Japan, and Dr. L. B. Wolfenson of Baltimore. The following is a list 
of these, viz.:

"Other articles in a more or less advanced stage of completion await 
publication, die most important and extensive being the Tagalog grammar 
above mentioned. No bibliography of Philippine languages has yet been 
published by the university, but I have prepared such a bibliography on 
cards, and expect to publish it as soon as I can find the time." 

Dr. David J. Doherty, of Chicago, who is one of the warmest champions 
of immediate Filipino independence, and who is now in the Philippines, has 
been working for some time in the various Filipino languages. He is at- 
tempting to amalgamate the seven chief languages of the Christian popula- 
tion into one common tongue. To this end he has compiled on cards a 
dictionaiy of the Tagalog language, to which he has added the words as used 
by the natives in the other languages. When the work is complete, he pro- 
poses to ask the Philippine Academy to decide which words should be given 
the preference in die common language, and the attempt will be made to bring 
the words into general usage through the assistance of the literari and press. 
Dr. Doherty has gathered many phonograph records with specimens of the 
various languages on diem, in order that he may have the correct intona- 
tion and accent of the words. A letter received some time ago from him 
states that his dicdonaiy was ready for press, and he expected the Philippine 
government to publish it. The work was done throughout with the aid of 
nadve Filipinos of education. 

In answer to a letter of inquiry regarding his work, Willard A. GoodeD, 
of North Truro, Mass., and formerly a missionary in the Philippines, 
writes us as follows concerning his work: "Although I became somewhat 
proficient in the use of the Tagalog dialect - suffidendy so that I was able 
to preach in it for the last two years that I was in the islands - and although 
I did ccmsiderable work translating for our mission, upon our Hymnal, 
Sunday-school lessons, handbooks for nadve workers, etc., as well as 
supervising the translation of Stalker's Life of Christy still I cannot really 
cite you to one workf which is mine as a translator. The entire style of the 
Malay dialects is so decidedly different from western tongues and so diffi- 
cult to acquire that one must needs be long among the people before his 
acquired knowledge of the language would be as safe a guide to idiomatic 
accuracy as the instinct of the native. To this instinct^ we were accustomed 
regulariy to appeal and upon it to rely in our translations. I doubt if any 
other mode of translation is safe. I was repeatedly assured by Tagalogs 

Digitized by 



that no Spanish friars had ever become perfectly idiomatic in their use of 
Tagalog. I have seen certain of their transUtions which were clearer to 
my Latin-trained mind than to die Tagalog in whose language they pur-

transbtion of several standard religious works (with such native help as I 
should need), had already been assigned me as one of my chief tasks/' 

Maps and cartography,- Probably the best collection of manuscript maps 
is diat of die A. de I. (with the possible exception of the following). For 
a list of diese see Torres Lanzas's Relacion desert ptiva de los mapas, pianos ^ 
eU., de Filipinos (Madrid, 1897). See also post^ p. 59, for the title of a 
map missed by the compiler. There is also a large plan of Cavite dated 
1659, ^^'^^ ^ ^^ archives by the ministry of war, which is not included in 
the list. The Deposito Hidrografico of Madrid also possesses a collecrion of 
manuscript maps, some of which are probably duplicates of those in A. de I. 
It is likely that this bureau also possesses copies of many printed maps. 
The manuscript map in Biblioteca Vittorio Emanuele of the Palaos, we 
have already noted. The Bibliotheque Nationale of Paris has compara- 
tively few Philippine maps. At the Bridsh Museum is a large collecdon of 
printed maps, and a few manuscript maps. The latter are as follows:

The collection of engraved maps in the Library of Congress is a notable 
one. See P. Lee Phillips's List of maps, charts, and views, which accom- 
panies Griffin's List of books. This shows 860 maps, etc., ranging in date 
fnm Magellan's dme (reproducdons) to 1903. General maps of various 

Digitized by 



parts of die worid, containing the Philippine Islands, are not listed in Phil- 
lips's bibliography. Since then a number of maps have been acquired. 
Chief among them is a copy of die famous Murillo Velarde map, which was 
engraved by a Filipino in 1734. This map is described in our vol. xlix, 
p. 63, note 25. Without the accompanying figures, this map is reproduced 
in Murillo Velarde's Historia^ fiom an engraving of 1744. It was also 
reproduced by Bellin in 1752, and in his Pet. ados mar. (Paris, 1764); and 
in Hist. Besch, Rthen (Amsterdam, 1758), zvii, p. 28. See also the mono- 
graphs by Pardo de Tavera and Gabriel Marcel regarding this map. Mr. 
Phillips is preparing at the present time a bibliography of adases (both 
world and of special localiries), which will contain a Philippine secdon. 
He is also preparing a bibliograhpy of universal cartography with copious 
annotadons. This will contain much useful informadon concerning maps 
and their makers. The War Department Library in Washington possesses 
some good Spanish maps. The Hydrographic Office of die War Depart- 
ment at Washington has published various maps; and the office gathers 
data for maps and charts from eveiy available source, by which they cor- 
rect the maps of die Coast and Geodedc Survey. Charts are furnished 
to all naval vessels, and sold to all vessels desiring them. The United States 
Coast and Geodetic Survey opened a sub-office at Manila, September 19, 
1900. Since that dme the work of the department has been carried on con- 
tinuously, and many harbor and coast lines have been surveyed and 
charted, and the charts issued to the public at the cost of producdon. There 
is a complete set of diese maps and charts at the office of the Coast and 
Greodedc Survey at Washington, and two sets are deposited in the library 
of Congress. Sailing directions for the Philippine Islands have been pub- 
lished, as well as a catalogue of the maps and charts of the Survey (see 
postf p. 64). See die annual reports of die Philippine branch of the Sur^ 
vey in the Reports of the Philippine Commission. Under the auspices of 
the government was published in 1900 die adas prepared under the care of 
the Jesuits at Manila, which accompanies the two-vol. ArchipiHago filipina. 
Many maps and coast and harbor charts are reproduced in the Gatetutr 
of the Philippine Islands (Washington X902). The American Geography 
cal Society issued a map in 1905 made up from the then latest data of the 
War Department. See also post^ in the acdvides of the Bureau of Insular 

Pp. 19, 20 of vol. iv of Bulletin of the N. Y. Public Library list a few 
Philippine maps. The Ayer Collection contains many Philippine maps. 
These are mainly printed, although there are a few in manuscript. 
There are some in the MS. on the Rio Grande de Mindanao; and one dated 
London, 1719, by Rob't Friend, and showing various Oriental islands, is 

Digitized by 



drawn on parchment. There is also a loose printed map which shows die 
lower course of the Rio Grande de Mindanao, dated 18869 which was issued 
by the ''Seccion topografica" of the Philippine gdvemment. This was 
purchased by Mr. Ayer from C. G. de T. de F., who priced it at 25 francs. 
It had formerly belonged to Retana, who had in turn purchased it of Vindel. 
The latter had acquired it from the heirs of General Terrero. Mr. Aytt's 
librarian. Miss Clara A. Smith, is at present compiling an index of all the 
maps of the collection, whether loose or contained in atlases, a portion 
of which will be devoted to Philippine maps. This index will be arranged 
chronologically by localities, and also by authors when known, and when 
obtainable, the name of the engraver will be given. Maps are listed in 
Maximilian Brose's UtUratufvenseichnis ( q. v.^poit^ p. 61 ). See the various 
maps (both printed and manuscript) reproduced in this series, as well as 
the map prepared especially for it; and vol. ii, p. 66, note 26, also vol. 
xux, p. 205, note 130. 

Photographs and vi^urx.* The Philippine American government pos- 
sesses a large coUecdon of photographs. Hon. Dean C. Worcester, of the 
Philippine Commission, also possesses a fine coUecdon, many of which are of 
great value ethnologically. Through the cooperadon of Mr. Worcester, 
Mr. Ayer has obtained copies of all die photographs in the above two col- 
Iccdons. These relate to all die tribes of the Philippines that have been 
studied, illustradng manners and customs, industries, etc., and to various 
localities. In all Mr. Ayer's coUecdon numbers more than 5,000, all of 
wfaidi are 5 X 7 inches in size. His coUecdon is accompanied by a type- 
written index and descripdon. Copies of these photographs are being made 
for the Field Museum, Chicago, from Mr. Ayer's collection. In the Na- 
tional Museum at Washington, is a diird coUecdon of photographs. The 
first instalment of this coUecdon was sent by RounsevUle WUdman, American 
Consul at Singapore, before the Spanish-American war. The second instal- 
ment consisted of about 200 photgraphs, which were given by Colonel H. H. 
Hilder, many of them taken by die donor. The third instalment is an 
almost complete set of the Worcester coUecdon. The fourth instalment 
consists of some negadves sent in by the German sciendst, A. B. Meyer. 
Fliotographs are extremely valuable for ethnological study.''

Museums," The two most notable muaeums are that of the Museo-Bi- 
blioteca de Ultramar (already described, anU^ pp. 31, 32), and that of the 
National Museum, Washington. Owing to the crowded condition of the 
latter, it has been impossible to suitably display all of the Philippine collec* 
tion. Besides a few modeb of the inhabitants of the archipelago, the collection 
can boast of considerable material for ethnological study, consisting of 
basketry, weapons, etc. The aim in making the coUecrion is to show the 
serious industrial life of the inhabitants of the Philippines. From this col- 
lecrion, trained sciendsts are studying the connection of the American Indian 
with die Orient -in short, are endeavoring to reconstruct into tangible 
facts the story of the Pacific Ocean, and migrations of peoples across it. 
The Nadonal Museum is in touch with men who are engaged in active field 
work in the Philippines, and with army and navy officers, from whom results 
are continually being received. 

Bureau of Insular Affairs,- This bureau was created after die Spanish- 
American war as a component part of the War Department. It has held 
an important place in the history of the Philippines since that dme. The 
publicadon department of the bureau is doing an important work in con- 
necdon widi the insular territory belonging to the United States. As regards 
the Philippines (and the same is troe of all American insular possessions), 
the various lines of acdvity are as follows: 

1. The collection of all Senate and House documents, reports, hearings 
before committees, and all acts, treaties, and resolutions; also briefs and 
decisions of the Supreme Court. 

2. The collection of all publications issued by all departments and 
bureaus of die U. S., which are not published as government documents. 

3. Collection of all reports and all monographs issued by die Philippine 

4. Collection of all orders and circulars issued by the military authorities 
of the Philippines, as well as all circulars and general orders emanating from 
the office of die adjutant-general of the U. S. army. 

5. Collection of speeches regarding the islands by public men. 

6. Collection of maps. These include the maps issued by the Geodetic 
and Coast Survey, and other departments of the government. The Philip- 
pine maps now in possession of die bureau number 2,505, and there are 450 
different kinds. They include charts, blue prints, and topographical maps, 
were no ivomen in die place. Tbe liouMt were buflt on piles rinng out of the water or manhy 
ground, and the under part was reterred at in the PhiUppinei for swine and fowls. All the 
men were fishermen, and their chief diTersioD was gambling. They spoke their own language 
or Spanish. Abofe all, dief maintained their identitj, and refused to be merged in the 
population about them. Some interesting views are shown with diis article. There is also 
at the pfCMttt time a colony of Malays in the British West Indies.

7. From time to time, compilations and monographs are prepared in the 
office and published. Also the Bureau publishes a quarterly (formerly 
monthly) summary of the commerce of the islands, and has under prepara- 
tion at the present time (April, 1907) a second edition of the acts, treaties, 
etc, of the 58th Congress. A useful compilation of die land laws of the 
Philippines has also been published. The Bureau also publishes aimually 
die acts of the Philippine Commission, and the report of the same. A 
second edition of the GautUer of the Philippine Islands has been prepared 
and is practically ready for press. It is also part of the work of this bureau 
to give out press notices. Bound files of Manila papers are also kept. 

The various documents are bound into separate volumes, all extraneous 
matter being thrown away, and a typewritten contents page made for each 
volume, so that consultation is rendered easy. The Bureau has also 
prepared an analytical index of all the documents, but it has not yet been 
published for want of an appropriation. This is of great value, and will 
£icilitate research in the many rich government documents that have been 
published on die Philippines since American occupation. See the annual 
reports of the chief of the Bureau of Insular AflFairs for 1901-1906, where 
the work of the bureau is well outlined. In the publication rooms of die 
bureau are the galley proofs of the five volumes of insurgent papers, which 
are compiled by Captain John R. M. Taylor, U. S. A. Hiese papers, not- 
withstanding their importance, are still awaidng a special appropriadon from 
Congress in order that diey may be published. Vols, i and ii consist mainly 
of compilations by the editor, and to them are appended bibliographical 
lists of books consulted in die compilation. 

The pamphlets, monographs, etc., being published continually by die 
various branches of die Philippine government are very important and merit 
study. Many of these form the first studies ever made in the field covered 
by them, for during the endre Spanish regime there was but litde sciendfic 
study that merited the name. There is an excellent opening for earnest 
scientific work that will prove of lasting value. The Bureau of Govern- 
ment Laboratories has already justified its creation in the work that has 
emanated therefrom. For the various publications of this bureau, see the 
inside cover pages of the various bulletins. 

Sales catalogues." One of the most prolific sources for the study of Philip- 
pine bibliography is oflFered by the sales catalogues of booksellers of various 
countries. We have listed a very few of such catalogues in section 11 of our 
bibliography of printed tides, but have made no effort to list them all. He 
who desires to avail himself of such study may consult the catalogues of die 
(cXkming: Anllo, Capdeville, Cuesta, Bernardo Rico, Gabriel Sanchez, 
Perdiguero, Victoriano Suarez, Viuda de Rico, Eugenio Garcia Rico, and P.

de los Riosl 1893. 2 toIs., 80), ii, pp. 93*-*352. This bibliography is divided into two 
paits- introduction, in wUch is given some histoiy of printing in the Philippines from 
its introduction to the present era; and a list of **worics dted by Father Zdi&iga, those 
consulted b^ us for the compilation of these appendices, and other worics which have been 
the object of our examination through their scientific merit, or because of their rarity.** 
Pp. I05*-I23* comprise a valuable Ust of ^the presses, printers, and places where there 
were or are presses.** In the list of titles (384 in all, many of which were formeriy in the 
valoahle Gayangps collection), are some facsimiles of title-pages of rare imprints. In the 
frUog* of voL i, there is bibliographical matter by Retana on pp. vii-xzzviii, in which 
various interesting and important details cooceniing Maitfnez de Z<UUga*s writings are to 
be found. On p. zviii, it is to be noted that Retana mentions the translation of Le 
Gentil made by Martlnex de Zdftiga (9.0., p. 374), the bcarion of which he does not know, 
and asserts - following the statement of Martbiex de Zdfiiga, viz., ^although M. Le 
Gentil does not believe it; see my note to these vojagn, which I have translated into 
Spanish, and which are being printed** -that this translation was printed. It is 
probable^ however, that none of this translation was printed, and that Martinez de 
Zdftiga simply made the statemmt in view of the fact that it was ready for the press. See 
Rctana*s CatSogo (1898), p. z, no. z.

Preceded by a short preface. There are 174 titles in all, some of which are MSS. The 
author calls tliis work an epitome^ and simple guide; and says {CaUiogs^ p. z) that it

that nothing had ever been written on the island of Mindanao.

following. Medina takes high rank as a bibliographer, as his Philippine and American 
bibliographies show. A native of Chile, and at &st interested soidy in American bib- 
liographical research, he was led to hit research in Philippine by noting that it overiaps 
to a considerable degree with Mericana. Much of Retana*s work appears to have bees 
suggested by Medina. See other titles by Medina, post, pp. 59, 6a, 80^ 9a.

Although the imprint reads ** 1897,'*^ the colophon on p. 556 states that the printing 
was finished Aug. 10, 1898. 

Retana (fiiU, j3^ p. 449) describes a de luxe edition (10 copies only). The above edi- 
tion was limited to 200 copies. This wotk was first published in tomo xcrii of the Aneies 
d* la unrversidad de Chile. Describes 667 titles. Medina defines ** Spanish bibliography 
ol the Philippine Islands** as follows: **the subject matter, the place of printing, the 
language in which they are written [Spanish and Latin] and the nationality of the authors 
are the fundamental bases of classification.** No MSS. or books printed in the Philippines 
are included, the latter already haying been listed in La Imprenta de MaaSa, Some 
documents from the ArduTO de Indias are, however, presented in illustration of rarious 
tides. There are also numerous biographical notices, and many references to other 
bihiiographers. The work is carefully done, and is one of the best sources for the study 
of PhHippina. It is highly praised by Retana (Vindei*8 CatdlegOy iv, p. 283, no. 1474).

PAres and Giiemes precede their bibliography with a reprint of the qMtome of La im* 
pmaa tm Manila of J. T. Medina, which appeared first in La Polkiea de EspaMa tn FUi- 
^iuaSf and was later published in pamphlet form at Madrid by Retana. To the 404 
numben of this epitome^ they add nos. 405-1316. Medina*s epitome includes the years 
1593-1810; Vim and Gdemes extend that period to 1840^ and in their appendix^ to Augus- 
tinian authors of the Philippines to the present time. They present much yaluable and 
int eres ti ng material to the bibliographer, and dte various MSS. eristing in their oonYent 
at Manila. In their long preliminary essay or introduction, they reriew in great measure 
the work of Medina and Retana. Sifting as far as possible, the eridence of Bcristain de 
Sousa, that the first book was printed in the Philippines in i c8i (the Aru y vocobulario dt 
U Umgua tagdOf by Juan de Quifiones, O. S. A.)^ iostead of the now generally accepted 
date oL 1593, they are inclined to beUere that it may haye a foundation on fact. In the 
oompilatian of thdr work, they used extensiTdy the libraries of the consents of the Recol- 
lects, Franriscans, and Dominiains, that of the university of Santo Tomis, that of the 
Jesuits, and that of Dr. Pardo de TaTcra. This, together with the work of Medina and 
Retana, offers a good survey of the Philippine press. Retana (Apare$§ hibl.), is severe on 
these authors and accuses them of not citing sources; but this assertion proceeds largely 
from persooal fcding.

The author wu an official of the Council of the Indies. In hit work he giTet tttiet of 
both printed books and MSS., and although wanting at times in e x actness, and often 
omitting dates, his work is extremely useful. Efe was the first bibliographer to list Philip- 
pine titles. Tftuio yii (pp. 80-81) is devoted entirely to Mduccan and Philippine titles. 
Retana, who says that this is the first colonial bibliography ever published, gives {Apa^

and other rare titles before i6a8 are listed. See Retana*s dparato bibliogrdfko, i. 

Nicolas Antonio (see post)f copied Leon Pinelo*s book almost wholly. Job Ludolfo in 
his Commentaries to his Historia dt Etiopic included the titulo entire that treats of thote 
kingdoms.- Alonso Lasor de Varea (pseudonjrm of Rafael Savonarola) copied coosidcrable

part. Rodriguez, the Trinitarian, in his BiUiotheea Veientina, Quetif and Echard 
(see poa\ Juan de San Antonio, O. S. P., (see poxt% also used the work, and it is praised

Del-Pan, Felipe : — [Lists of Philippine titles.] 

Published in Rnisia de FSipinas, a Manila newspaper, of which Del-Pan was the founder 
and director, and which was published from July i, 1875 ^ J"''^ 1^77* Rotana calls 
tiiis tbe best newspaper of the Philippines because of its scientific Talue (Vindel*s Caidloge, 
iv, no. 221}. Del-Pan*s bibliographical work, Retana {CaMogo, pp. rii, riii; and A para- 
to bibl^ i, p. iii) criticises hanhly, bowerer, saying that not a sin^e title is stated definitely, 
and that it is poor in items; although some of the comments are good. Viewed from the 
standpoint of use^ and not merely of exact bibliography, it is to be feared that Retana^s 
obserTations, as is sooften the case^ are too sweeping.

Cr4aka dt la umta y apoi$6ika provincui dt San Grtgtrh (tft post}. It was discorered 
in that BIS. by the editor of Santa In^*s CrSuka Manila, 1892), who announced his 
find in the supplement of the Oceania upaHcla, for June 6, 1886; and published the 
document in the above book, ii, appendix 3, pp. 592-598. This MS. was prepared by 
Plasmria at the request of Governor Santiago de Vera (made through the Fhmdscan 
provincial, San Pedro Bautista) in order that the alcaldes-mayor might have some 
standard by which to administer justice to the natives. This code was used in the legis- 
lation for the natives until the chnging oonditians of FilipiDO society rendered it inopera- 
tive For many yean it was supposed to have been lost until discovered as above related. 
Its appearance in the body of the acts of the Audiencia (for 1598-1599, where we found a 
m anusc ri pt copy ci it) indicates that it was di scusse d by that body in 1599. This is also 
pttUisfaed in Fstemo^s Baraiigay (Madrid, 1892), pp. i-8c. Patemo alleged that he

The earliest printed ecclesiastical history treating entirely of the Philippines, and the 
earliest to print Filipino written characters. Some have contended that this book was 
printed later than 1620^ an error that has arisen in part from the later MS. left by Chirino 
(see post, p. 283)^ and partly from the mention of Morgans Sueosos by Chirino. But it 
must be remembered that Morgans book circulated m MS. before being published. This 
work is of great importance as it is one of the earliest accounts of the peoples of the Philip- 
pines, and is full of keen obserration. Vindel, CaUSogo, iii, p. 180^ says that but 200 
copies were printed. Chirino was the first Jesuit to go to the Philippines (1590) at the 
king^s expense. In 1602 he went to Rome on business for the order, where he published 
his book, returning to the islands July 7, 1606. He afterward taught in the College of San

Some volumes hsTe an engraved title-page with the following title: ** Svcesos de las 
Islas Philipinas dirigidos a Don Christoval Gomez de Sandoval y Rojas Dvqve de Cea. 
Mtxki ad Indost 1609.'** Some volumes may have borne both tide-pages, though we 
have not seen them; or there may have been a reissue of the volume, with the changed 
title-page; in other respects the volumes are the same. This is the first secular histoiy 
devoted to the Philippines, and is one of the best ever written. Morga had a high idea oi 
the eariy civilization of the Filipinos; and writes with the assurance of one who had made 
a dose study of his subject. Tlie MS. of this work was dated 1607 aiid bore the following 
title: **Descubrimiento, conquista, padficaciony poUadon de las Islas Philipinas,** and 
was dedicated *' A la Magestad Catholica dd Rejr Don Phdipe m, nuestxo Sefior,** as is 
mentioned by Tomibia, both title and dedication being changed in the printed edition. 
Chiiino also {Rdacion, 1604), mentions the work (at least the eighth chapter), so that it 
must have been written at least in part before 1604. It was edited and reprinted by Rizal, 
with the following title-page: 

Sucesos de las Islas Filipinas por d Doctor Antonio de Morga. Obra publicado en 
M^jico d aAo de 1609 nuevamente sacada i luz y anouda por ]oU Rizal y precedida de 
un pt6logo dd Prof. Fernando Bhimentritt. Park; Libreria de Gamier Hermanos, 189a 
Pp. ixxvi, (1), 374. 80. 

Unfortunatdy the transcript which was made for Rizal from the copy of the oriigind 
conserved in the British Museum was hastily made, and in consequence is not thoroug^y 
accurate. This work and Rizd*s annotations are a protest against the frequently- 
expressed contempt of the Spaniards for the Filipinos; and while Rizal tried, perhaps, to 

Digitized by 


prore too much, the work was tundlj, and brought into more general notice a book that 
well merited study. One Jutto Zaragoza, shortly before Rizal, began to reprint Morgans 
book, but he died before the completion ci his task. The book was reprinted, but the notes, 
prologue and life of Morga, which Zaragoza intended to insert, were nerer finished. Some 
time after his death, the sheets were sold as wrapping paper. So far as known, but two 
copies of this edition (which bears date Madrid, 1887) were bound, one of which belongs to 
the C. G. de T. de F., and one to the Aycr Collection (see Vindel*s Catdlogo, iii, pp. 199, 
200; and Retana^s AparOe bAl.), An English translation was made by Sir Henry Ed- 
ward John Stanley, with the following title: 

The Philippine Islands, Moluccas, Siam, Cambodia, Japan, and China, at the dote ci 
the sixteenth century. By Antonio de Morga. Translated from the Spanish, with notes 
and a preface, and a letter from Luis Vaez de Torres, describing his voyage through the 
Tones Straits, by the Hon. Henry E. J. Stanley. LondoH : Printed for the HaUuyt Society, 
1868. Pp.zziv,43i. Portrait. Index. 8^. 

The translation is poor, and Stanley has omitted the translation of the broad passages. 
We have used the annotations ci both Rizal and Stanley in our translatioo. Morgans 
work, which is scarce and commands a high price, is Tery Taluable for a study of ethnology, 
and oonditioos among the Filipinos during the eariy Spanish regime. Morga, it must be 
remembered, was a high official in the cdony, and had access to all the documents in the 
arduTes of the islands, and was in addition a keen observer. See Pardo de Tavera, 
BM. fl^ pp. 175-277; and Retana, CaUSega, pp. 6, 7; and vol. xv, pp. 34^36^ notes 2 
and 3, and pp. 31-287; and vol. xvi, pp. 27-209 (the title-pages are reproduced in fac-

This it called the first part of the hittoiy of the Jetuitt in the Philippines and wat pre-

in Manila in 1890^ but was never completed (see Retana, CaUUogo dbreviado^ p. 9). Tliis 
book contains considerable bibliographical information, as Colin has published in con- 
densed form various letters written hj Jesuits. Colin^s work was republished by Pablo 
Pastells, S. J., of the Jesuit college of Sarrii, Barcelona, as follows:

These volumes are most copiously annotated with original MSS. drawn from the Ar- 
duvo general de Indias, and other documents, which make them a most valuable source 
for the histoiy ol the Jesuits in the Philippines. In addition the editor used extensively 
Chirino*s unpublished MS. (9.0., p. 283). A German translation of most of the first 
book of the original edition was published in the Neue Wdt-Bott^ iv, theil xzvi, by Joseph 
Kiopff, S. J., in 1748, under the following title: ^^Beschrdbung deren Philippinischen

This is eren yet one of the most important books erer written about Mindanao and ad-

contains matters of considerable value not elsewhere found. While treating especially of 
China, some space is given to the Philippines, in particular book vi, chaps, iii-vii, zzzi, 
and zzxiL In chap, tttj, ^Adidones breres i. estos tratados** is a criticism of the woik 
of Firandsco Colin (see Pardo de Tavera, BM. ft., p. i68, no. 1068). It was probably in 
answer to this and to the treatment of the Chinese missions, that the following polemical 
works were published, in all probability by Jesuits: ** Memorial apologetico el exc™° Sefior 
Conde de ^a-Humbrosa . . de parte de los missioneros apostolicos de el imperio de la 
China. Representando los reparos que se hazen en un libro que se ha publicado en Madrid

toriales apologeticos . . propuestos de parte de los missioneros apostolicos del imperio

no. 18) says was published at Tarragona, but the British Museum catalogue suggests Pam- 
plona, in 1 677. This, Retana says (ut supra) probably delayed the publication of the second 
part of the TrOaJci, which finally appeared in 1679. Fernandez de Navarrete was probably 
in Manila from 1648-1656 (see 6riffin*s Listf p. 1 19). There is an English translation which

One of the most celebrated of all earij accounts. Ends with the jear 1616. The 
C«mquisuu dt las Islas Ftlipmas, prepared by Casiniiro Diaz, and known as the second part 
of thie above histoiy, was prepared in great part from materials gathered by San Augustin. 
It was never published until 1 890 (Valladolid) under the editorship of Tirso Lopez, O. S. A. 
Copies of San Augustin*s work are owned by P. de T. (Manila); M. B. de U. (Madrid);

direction of the confessors and the instruction of the penitents.** It was published at Sam- 
paloc, in 1787. (**Pres6ntanse en A cuestiooes en eztremo per^;rinas, particularmente

The author claims that he has used only materials contained in the letters and rela- 
tions of missionaries sent him from Rome, Spain, and the Netherlands. Much of it is 
a translation of Garda^s FiiU y martyrio . . dt Diego Luis de Sanvitores (Madrid, 
1683). Book ii of the 2d ed. of Le (>obien*s work (also Paris, 1700) was published in 
Spuush translation in Delgado*s Historia genend (Manila, 1892). Eduardo Navarro, 
O. S. A., of Valladolid, claims that Le Gobien is not accurate in all essentials. See Griffin*s

This memorial purports to be by the representatires of the fire orders of the Dominicans, 
Franciscans, Augustinians, Recollects, and Jesuits. However, Berart, in a letter of April 
4, 1700^ says: **I wrote the memorial which Lector Mimbela printed under his name,^ 
(see ReseHa hiog^ ii, p. 203). Mimbela is the first person mentioned in the memorial as

The Frandtcan Tomibia wrote, in defense of the Jetuit mitttons in Mindanao and the 
mainrfnanrr of the Zamboanga fort, in 1736 (for title of which, see Retana and Griffin), 
a memorial, which was printed (a Tery few copies) for circulation in the Spanish court; 
it eulogized the serrices of F. Valdis Tamdn. When the latter*s son was at Madrid 
later, no copy of this memorial could be found; accordingly, Patrido Joseph Castellanos 
secured permission (1753) to reprint it; he dedicated it to the son. (See the ^* Dedication*' 
at the beginning, signed by Castellanos.) Tomibia describes the location, settlements, 
and importance of Mindanao, and its relation to the other Moro islands of J0I6, Borneo, 
etc He relates the depredations of the Moro pirates, and shows how these have always 
been nmch greater when the Spaniards had no fort in Mindanao. He gives the history of 
Zamboanga fort and of expeditions sent against pirates. The origin and funds of Miseri- 
oordia are related, its obras pfas, and its function as a Monte de piedad. In addition to

Mas, Sinibaldo de: — Informe sobre el estado de las Islas Filipinas en 

1842. Elscrito por el autor del Aristodemo^ del Sistema musical de la 

Ungua castillanay etc. Madrid: Enero de 1 843. 3 vols. 80. 

The first two yolumes are common. Vol. i contains a chart of Filipino written characters, 
and yd. ii, a map of the archipelago. These two yolumes contain in all 27 different sec- 
tions, with independent pagination, treating of the ethnology, history, fauna, natural fea- 
tures, industries, commerce, and various goyemmental and social aspects of the Philippines. 
VoL iii was published secretly and in a limited edition, and treats of the Spanish policy 
regarding the Philippines. The author advocates training the Filipinos for self-goyem- 
ment and then giving them independence. Although this third yd. was listed by Retana 
in his Cadiogo abrtvioib, p. 524, it has been rardy dted. It is yeiy rare. Bttides the 
copy of the Compafifa de Tabacos de Filipinas, we know of three copies, one bdonging 
to Epifanio de los Santos, Mddos, Bulakan, Luz6n (from a typewritten copy of which we 
publish the translation in our scries); one to the late Clemente 2^ueta, a Filipino; and 
one to the Peabody Institute Library, at Bddmore. The entire work is of great value, 
dthough in the light of the latest researches its ethndogicd part suffers. In addition to 
many notes, we have made the following ezcerpts in our series from Mas*s work: ** Ad-

A work of considerable merit, which consists, says Pardo de Tavera, BM. fl, (p. 245), 
**not in its originalitj, but in the system and good arrangement.** Largely used by Buzeta 
and BraTO in compiling their Dkeionario. Mallat has followed Mas to a considerable 
extent. The atlat accompanying the work is very rare, and we haye not seen it. We

Vol. i, of the series BAliattea histdrica fliphui, published under the initiatire of Jos< 
Gutierrez de la Vega. Although published only in 1892, this work was imdenaken by 
Delgado in Guiguan in 1751, continued in Palipag, and finished, June 6, 1754. The 
author seems to haye utilized San Antonio^s Ckromkas to a great extent; but he hat 
added much material of his own, so that the book is a valuable addition to Philippina. 
Especially interesting are the third, fourth, and fifth books on ethnology, and natural hitfory. 
In the third book, Delgado inserts most of San Agustin*s famous letter; and the editor 
inserts a portion of Loarca*s Relation (see voi. v, pp. 34-187), and excerpts from Le 
Gobien^s Histoin das isles Marianes (Paris, 1700). CittA many times in our series, and

Delgado was bom at CAdiz, and went to the Philippines in 171 1. He worked in the mis- 
rions of Simar, where he held various offices, was many years in Cebii, and labored as well 
in Leyte and Bohol. A copy of the original MS. of this work is mentioned by Sonmier-

Vols, ii and iii of the B^iateea histSrica flipiua (which was undertaken through the 
influence of JoU Gutierrez de la Vega). Santa In^*s CrSnica dates from 1676. Pardo 
de Tavera says that iu author wrote it with the intention of publication. The MS. (writ- 
ten on rice paper) was preserved in the Franciscan convent at Manila, the first volume 
entire, but the second somewhat mutilated. The MS. is also cited by Huerta, Estado^ 
p. 462; and MarceUino da Civezza, Saggio di hibl^ pp. 551, 552. At the end of the second 
vol. the editor has added 12 appendices, among them two valuable relations of Juan de 
Flasencia, O. S. F. The Crdniea is divided into three books, and deals with the islands 

up with the stoiy of the martyrdom of Pedro Bautista and his companions in Japan in the 
sixteenth century. Santa In^ was bom at Pefiaranda de Bracamonte, and went to the 
Philippines in 1674. He was appointed chronicler of his province in 1676, and in accord- 
ance therewith wrote the above history, comprising the years 1 576-1627. His death oc- 
curred at Lilio, August 49 171 3 (Pardo de Tavera, BiM. fi., p. 395).

Gutierrez, Manuel, O. S. A.; and others: — [The friar memorial of 1898.] 
Manila, April 21, 1898. 

This memorial was never presented, as the American forces captured Manila before it 
could be sent to Spain. It gives the friar point of view of the troubles that led to the 
revolution ol 1896, and was the joint work of the Augustinians, Franciscans, Dominicans, 
Recollects, and Jesuits, each order being represented by its provincial. Fifty copies were 
pulled off press, ten for each order. Our typewritten transcript was made from one of 
these printed copies that was made for the Recollects. An edition was published at Ma- 
drid, *^ Imprenta de la Viuda de M. Minuesa de los Rfos,** co., 1900. This contains some

and the Journal of Political Economy), and is, from the thorough study that he has made 
of nineteenth-century and present-day conditions, better qualified than any other to write 
on this period. The present contribution furnishes material, by editorial comment and a 
working bibliography, for a careful study of the period treated. See his PhUippint lift 
in town and country (New Yoric and London, 1905), which presents the Filipino in a 
clearer light than has been done elsewhere. Vol. ui, pp. 1 12-207.

Published (Italian and English) in vols, xxxiii, and xxxiv, pp. 11-180; 

with notes, and photographic facsimiles of 23 charts by Pigafetta; and 

photographic facsimile of last page of MS. 

A journal of the first circumnaTigation of the globe. Pigafetta, an Italian of noble f amilj, 
and an ardent admirer of Magalhies, kept a journal during the voyage, from which eri- 
dendy this relation was compiled. This is called the Ambrosian Manuscript, from its place 
of conserration in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Milan, Italy. It is the oldest of the four 
manuscripts (see postf p. 239), and dates from either shortly before or shortly after 1525. 
Ciscato (Antonio Pigafetta viaggiaoro victntino del tecolo XVI\ in **Atti deU* accademia 
Olimpica di Vicenza,** xriii, a. 1883) betieres that it was procured for the founder of the 
Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Cardinal Fedcrico Borromeo, by one of the learned men whom 
he sent out, according to Manri>ni, to every part of Europe, to buy ancient books and 
manuscripts. It was discovered among the papers of the Biblioteca Ambrosiana by Dr. 
Cario Amoretti, prefect or conserrator of that library, and first made known to the world in 
his Primo viaggio (Milan, 1800), although in a wofully mutilated form, as Amoretti has 
edited the manuscript almost beyond recognition in places, with the result that Pigafetta*B 
words are twisted into new meanings. This manuscript, written in a mixture of Italian, 
the dialect of Viccnza, and some few Spanish words, is probably a copy of the one pre- 
sented to the grand master of Rhodes, as it bean the following inscription on the inside of 
first cover-page: **Ce livre est du chevallier de Forette;** for it is scarcely likely that Villiers 
de ITsle-Adam would give away his copy. It is written in a Tolume bound simply in 
heavy walnut-colored paper. Pages streaked and dog-eared at edges. Height, 273 mm.; 
width, 204 mm.; thirknrss, 28 mm. Written on ordinary rag paper on fol. 1-80. Fol- 
lowing this (fol. 81-92), u "Alcune regole sull* arte della navigarione,^ or **Some rules on 
the art of navigation,** also by Pigafetta. The remainder of the book (fd. 93-142) is blank. 
The text is written in a beautiful minute Roman letter, of 24, 25, and 26 lines to the page. 
For a more complete description of this manuscript, see Robertson*s Magdlan'*s voyage 
around the world (Cleveland, 1906X ii» pp* 241-248; and for a discussion of the bibliography 
of Pigafetta manuscripts and printed books (which is somewhat apart from the present 
subject), see ut supra, pp. 241-313. This may be the MS. dted by Leon Pinelo, Epitome^

This document consists of two parts: i. A letter written by Riquel and others, which 
was carried to Mexico in one of the ships leaving Manila, July i, 1573, and arriving at 
Acapulco, Norembcr 15, 1573. 2. A postscript, added by the Mcrican officials before 
they forwarded the letter to Spain in 1574, enumerates the cargo brought in the ships from 
die Philippines. An endorsement on the back of this document, dated May 7, 1854, 
attests that it was copied on that date by royal authorization for Adrian Garcia Hernandez, 
then general secretary of the superior gorernment of the Philippines. The original corers 
about 51/3 pp. folio size, and the paper shows discoloration and ink-blots. Li M. B. de 
U.; 711, 20 — 3% caja n^. 22, is a document which is similar to the abore, but which 
shows some sli^ differences. It is evidently the same letter that was written by Riquel,

i la obedienda del Rey en 1580, los pueblos espafioles, manera de gobiemo de estos y de 
Indies por Migud de Loarca; copiose en Simancas en dnco cuademos.^ Of it Mufioz 
says: **It is a Tery fine relation, for one can with difficulty find another of that time so 
complete. [It merits] peculiar credit in whatever touches upon religion, opinions, cere- 
monies, manners, and customs of the natives, which it appears that the author investi- 
gated with great care from the beginning of our settlements in those islands. On simple 
paper, but in the letter of the time in which it was written. . . . Written on 14 sheets. 
... It was written in the year 1580^ that is, 16 years after the settlement of the 
Spaniards in Filipinas, during the governorship of Don Gonzalo Ronquillo, as appears 
from the introduction and from the third chapter sub. med.^ A transcript from Mufioz^s 
copy, or a duplicate of it, exists in the Lenox branch of the New York Public Library, but 
likie the Mufioz MS. it diiOfers in some essentials from the real original, namdy in speUing, 
capitalization, and punctuation. Beginning with chapter vi, Mufioz^s transcript was 
published in Ddgado*s HiaUtria (Manila, 189a) as an appendix to part i, book iii, pp. 
37i'39^ ^ ^ ^itor of that book. Temaux-Compans, Arehtves dts voyages (Paris,

las Cottumbres de los Indios Bisayas, i otros de Filipinas**, dted by Barda, ii, cd. 638, 
appears to be Loarca^s Rdadon. Blumentritt, Foc^i, thn. Ausd^t p. 49, dtes this ida-

A collection of papers relating to the matter of the tribute, consisting of some twenty-four 
documents (which do not all appear in their correct chronological order). This is a most 
interesting and yaluable MS., although often filled with unnecessary details and quibbling, 
as it shows one phase of the struggle between the ecclesiastical and dyil powers, which 
was so often to break out in the Philippines. The eariiest document bears date, Manila, 
Jan. 25, and the latest Quiapo, March ai. The yarious documents are not all arranged 
chronologically, haying been copied in wrong order probably by a goyenmient clerk, but 
we haye arranged them correctly, in our publication, where they are presented in transla- 
tion and synopsis. The original MS. is mutilated in places, and bears several endorse- 
ments. A transcript of it was made for Eduardo Nayarro, O. S. A.

There are three MSS. known to be in existence, all of which di£Fer aomewhat from one 
another. We haTe used mainly what appears to be the real originai, existing in the Archires 
of the Indies. Of the other two, one is in the R. A. de la H., and the other is evidently 
a copy therefrom by Ventura del Arco (see post). Below are the necessary details regard- 
ing these three MSS., which we designate as A, B, and C, respectiTely. A. [Memorial to

our publication. See vol. vi, p. 158, note 37; p. 165, note 40, and pp. 230-233. This is

in Madrid; Deposito hidrogrifico; tomo 18. This document is also published by Paa-

The letter itself is followed by certain facetious questioos and answcn concetning the 
Filipino, which are ascribed to Pedro Murillo Velarde, S. J. W. E. Retana says (£jfa- 
dismo, ii, p. 281*) that Murillo Velarde was a genial author, but itrj keen and obsorrant 
withal. '*He was Teiy anti-Indian, a name applied to those who do not flatter them; and 
it is known that in a quarter of an hour of good humor, he wrote the pages wfaidi I tran- 
scribe** (here follow the questions and answers). Retana notes that Murillo Velarde and 
Delgado did not have the same opinion in the matter. This is a famous letter, and manf 
copies of it exist. See us sufra, pp. 183, 184, and the footnotes for the entire letter. Tlie 
MS. described abore is written on good rag paper of about octavo size^ and occupies foL

This BiS. consiftt of two parts: the first is the retation proper by Valdes Tamon; the 
second part is the ecclesiastical siurey and was written by Pablo Frandsco Rodri^ez de 
Bcrdozido, royal accountant at Manila, in 1742. In **MotiTO de Efta obra,** which pre- 
cedes the work, a letter from Don Joseph Patifio, royal secretaiy, dated Sept. 20, 1735, 
states that the king desired news of die islands, and of their fortifications, as the recent fire 
at the palace in Madrid had destroyed many papers. He asked for plans, and reports on 
fortifications, troops, munitions, and artillery. The ecclesiastical portion of the work was 
written in obedience to a letter, dated Madrid, Aug. 30, 1739, from the royal secretary. 
The book is a beautiful specimen of workmanship. It is fdio size and bound in boards. 
For better protection, the entire book, with its binding, has been enclosed in two thick 
wooden coders. The paper is thick and heavy, and somewhat worm-eaten. Some of the 
maps are in colors. Another copy of this MS. exists in the Serilla archires. A short ex- 
tract from a copy of this MS., probably existing in Manila, is published in toL iii, of the 
annual Report of the War Department (Washington, 1903), pp. 437, 438, note a.

This MS., wUch was purchased from the Madrid bookseller, P. Vindd, b7 Mr. ATcr in 
1904 is bound in a modem binding embossed on the back, **Ligleses en Illipinas**. It 
has a modem title-page (^.r., aboveX and, in addidon, a modem index at the end, which 
contains, however, numerous errors. The MS. itself consists of 57 folios, numbered in ink 
b7 the person who transcribed the various documents from the originals in 1765. In addi- 
tion each page is also numbered in pencil (i 14 in all). The MS. is in excellent conditian, 
and is worn through in but few places, due to the old-fashioned method of blotting, which has 
disintegrated the paper in sevoal instances. The titles of the various documents as given 
above have been uken pard7 from the index, partl7 from the documents thems^ves, and 
in part made up.

it the date when it was written, it was thus written after the conquest of Manila hf Draper

ol the success of the British arms. In the absence ctf this direct catalogue entry, we had

this in the first months of 1827.** It is a valuable MS., and treats of all the manifold ele- 
ments entering into the administration of the Philippines - military; Moros; native 
population; lands; ecclesiastical matters; foreigners, exiles, and politicians in the islands; 
Spaniards from Europe in the islands; residencias; employes; aid sent to the islands;

First mentioned m 1841 bj Thomassy, who found it in the Ufaraiy of Moos. Beauprf 
jodgv of the court of first instance at Nancy, France (on account of which it is known as 
the Nancy MS.); and who described it and gave various passages from it (Bulletin de la 
See, g4eg; Paris, Sept. 1843). The catalogue of the Libri sale yuly, 1862, p. 92, no. 456) 
says: **This MS. belonged to the secretaiy of the Cardinal of Lorraine, and . . was in 
the convent of St. Ltepold at Nancy. There is evay reason to suppose that this is the 
manuscript copy of the relation of his voyage which Pigafetta had addressed to the Duke 
of Lorraine, as Vespuod (at the beginning of the same century) addressed his letters on 
America to another Duke of Lorraine** (see also Harrisse, BAl, Amer. otfif j., Add^^ Paris, 
187a, p. xzxii). From the library of Mons.Beaupr^ the manuscript passed into the posses- 
skm ol the Paris bookseller Potier, by whom it was sold in 1855 into the Solar coUectioQ 
(aocordittg to Mosto, p. 41; Harrisse says, ut tupra^ p. scxiii, that is was sold at Potier*s 
sale in March, 1851, where it was no. 506). At the demise of Mons. Fdiz Solar in 1861, it 
came into the possession of a London bookseller, who paid 1,650 francs for it (Stanley*s 
First voyage round the worlds p. li). The Venetian canon Pietro Marasca tried to ac* 
quire the manuscript for the library of his dty, first at Nancy, and then at Paris, but in 
vain, and after it was taken to London lost all trace of it (see Morsolin*s Elegie di Antenie 
Pigafetta -dted by Mosto). It appears next at London in the Libri sale (July, i%6%\ 
where it was bid in by Sur Thomas Phillipps of Cheltenham, England, for £135. It has 
been partially described by Thomassy (Bulletin de la SeeiM de Giografkie^ vol. zx, 1843, 
pp. 165-183X and by the Solar and Libri catalogues, which sources Harrisse and Mosto 
follow; but we are indebted for the most complete description of this document yet fur- 
nished to the courtesy of Mr. T. FitzRoy Fcnwick, grandson of Sir Thomas Phillipps (who 
died in 187a). SmaU folio,. finely bound in red morocco, tooled and gilt (Divin bmding). 
Written on fine wh'te vellum in a beautiful French hand of the sixteenth century, and & 
vohmie as a whole is in an exceUent state of preservation. There are 99 leaves with writing, 
11x7 1/2 in. In addition, at the b^;inning are one paper flyleaf and two blank vellum 
leaves, and at the end two blank vdUum leaves and one paper flyleaf. The text occupies 
folios 3 recto^ verso, and is divided into 57 numbered diaptcn, the titles of which are 
written in red or blue. The initial letters are handsomely illuminated in gold and colors, 
and there are twenty-three richly-executed charts (most of them full page). There are 
three vocabularies. It is nearer the Italian MS. in die few passages that we have been able 
to collate with the Ambrosian MS. than are the other two French MSS. Thomassy 
dates it later than bodi the latter, but in the same general epoch as MS. 14214, which it

dbe above regarding the dutiei imposed 00 Fbilippine merchandise^ and peddoo that the 
additional tvo per-cent duty be repealed as bong too onerous. July 27. IL Rojal 
decree concerning collection of duties in Manila. Madrid, August a6, 1633. This is 
followed by an act by the governor, Cereiode Salamanca, dated Ji^f »» 1634, oHciing the 
observance of the decree. On July 13, accordingly, it was proclaimed, ni. Statement 
by the royal officials regarding the gift of 4,000 pesos pr es e nted to the treaswy by the dty 
for the year 1632. IV. Stalcmem by the fiscal Juan Fcmandei de Ledo; and petition 
that above deoee be obeyed. V. Order by the governor to register the goods in the 
ships about to sail in accordance with the decree. July 27. YL Apetitton by the royal 
officials of the above date^ asks that five per cent be collected on all the gooda. That same 
day the governor orders die evaluation of the cargo to be made on the five per-cent basis, 
so that £e ships may sail by August i, even if only with the food necessary for the voyage. 
Vn. Request made to governor, and allowed, for the citizens to meet in open cabildo to 
consider the matter on tbe following day, July 28. Vm. The sense ol the meeting held 
on the twenty-eighth was that it would be loss and ruin to the merdunts if they were com- 
pelled to pay the additional two per cent; and that with the high duties of Nueva Espafia, 
the three per-cent duty was sufficient. AtameetingofdieAudiaicia July 28, all votes were 
in favor of remitting the two per-cent duty for that year in order that the vends might not 
sail without cargo^ as that would be more detrimental to the king than the non-coUecdon 
of the two per cent. Accordingly on July 29, the governor decided to admit die peddoo 
not to collect the two per-cent duQr that year.

thinks that it may be the memorial cited by Tomibia. Murillo Velarde does not mention 
it. This missionary was called the apostle of Mindanao, where he labored for many years. 
He was in the Philippines from 1621 until his death in 1651.
