INTRODUCTION 

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

Obviously, one cannot hope, much less expect, within the compass of one 
single volume, to cover the field as just outlined. Besides it is unnecessary 
to duplicate work that has been so efficiently done already. The recent bib- 
liographies published under the auspices of the Library of Congress, namely, 
those of A. P. C. Griffin and Dr. T. H. Pardo de Tavera, furnish excellent 
working bibliographies. The bibliographical works of Medina and Retana, 
although published in limited editions, are sufficiently accessible. The 
latest work of the latter, Aparato bibliogrdficoy oflFers the most extensive 
array of Philippine imprints jret listed. The catalogues (especially vols, 
iv and v) of Pedro Vindel, die Madrid bookseller, can be used to distinct 
advantage, and are easily obtainable. The Adiciones of Perez and Giiemes 
supplement Medina's and Retana's work on the imprints of Manila and 
the Philippines. Finally, the bibliographical comments of James A. LeRoy, 
published in the Philippine Islands^ 1493-1898^ Vol. LII, furnish the 
most comprehensive practical working list of Philippina for the later period 
of the Spanish regime that has yet been attempted. 

It is to be observed that 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 vuelta al mundo) 
are devoted to the listing of printed matter. Consequently, it has been 
deemed expedient, in the present work, to limit our endeavors more direcdy 
to the field of MSS. - a field that oflFers so rich a source for the history of the 
Philippines. Yet, in order that one may find within our volume complete 
material for a thorough bibliographical survey of the Philippines, we have 



lO THE PHIUPPINE ISLANDS 

devoted the first part of our work to printed titles. We make no pretense 
of listing the titles usually 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 
lists; -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 ritles 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.; -this division 
showing ritles in many diflFerent lines, some of great rarity and value. It 
must again 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 enritled "Books, pamphlets, etc. (mostly published in whole 
or in part in The Philippine Islands^ I4pj'l8p8).** 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 
ritles 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 Historia of i6oi. A special feature of the last division is 
the location of the rarer titles. 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 titles, 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 titles 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 



BIBLIOGRAPHY-INTRODUCTION ^ * 

of private libraries also contain ritles. 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 ecdesiasrical provinces of 
the Philippines extended to China and other parts of the Asiaric mainland, 
so that it is quite natural to expect that bibliographies of China and Japan 
and other parts of southern Asia should often contain Philippina. The 
student should also note that many collections of voyages, ecclesiastical 
books, etc., contain Philippine matter. Some of the ritles cited contain 
very 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 prinring in the Philippines, and its de- 
velopment, the reader will find useful matter in Medina's Imfrenta en Ma- 
nila (Sandago 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 
established 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, 1593, in our vol. ix, 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 prinring press had been established before the year 1593. 
However, the implied reasoning of Perez and Guemes {Adiciones^ pp. xxi- 
xxiv) following the statement of Beristain de Sousa, that the Arte y Vocahu- 
lario de la lengua tagala of Juan de Quinones was printed at Manila in 158 1, 
cannot be supported. The real history of printing in the Philippines, in 
which it seems that the religious orders had more to do than anyone else, 
has not yet been written, although it is worth careful study. 

MANUSCRIPTS 

The bibliography of MSS. forms the main part of the present volume. 
Important as is our citarion of authorises ciring Philippine dtles, we believe 
this to be our chief contribution to Philippine bibliography. We do not 
hesitate to assert that we have presented more manuscript Philippine dtles 
than all other 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 obligadons. However, we 
have ourselves personally examined the greater part of the MSS. cited by 
us, and thus are enabled to cite directly from the originals or our transcripts 



12 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

from the originals. Especially is this true of the MSS. cited from the Ar- 
chive de Indias, at Sevilla; those of the Real Academia de la Historia, at 
Madrid; other government archives of that city; the MSS. belonging to 
Eduardo Navarro, O. S. A., of Valladolid, and those of the Colegio de Agus- 
dnos of die same city; those belonging to Pablo Pastells, S. J., at Sarria; 
those of the Vadcan; those in the Bibliotheque Nadonale, Paris; those in the 
British Museum; and in America, those in Lenox, the Library of Congress, 
and the Ayer Collecdon. The rest we have cited from any source where we 
have found them mendoned. In addidon to the arduous research in the 
various archives and libraries, the examination of the various authorides 
cidng MSS. has enuiled severe and protracted labor. In this research we 
have examined the following works: Sommervogel's Bibliotheque; Blumen- 
tritt's Focabtdar; Huerta's Estado; Marcellino da Civezza's Saggio di 
hibliografia; Retana's works (especially his Bibliografia de Mindanao^ and 
his Archivo); Vindel's Caidlogos; Perez's Catalogo; Perez and Giiemes's 
Adiciones; 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 eflFort has been to cite as many MSS. as possible, and to describe them 
as fully as possible. 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 
archives, 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 
than for bibliographical purposes. All such MSS., however, have a value 
to the historical student, having been carefully selected from the thousands 
in the archives as worthy of publicadon. 

Our manuscript division falls quite naturally into two parts: I. Those 
MSS. which we have published, in whole or in part, in our series. II. 
Those manuscripts which we merely cite and describe in this bibliography, 
but have not published in our series. The descripdon of the MSS. of the 
first division is in general more complete than those of the second, except 
for the MSS. from the Library of Congress and the Ayer Collecdon. In 
all the MSS. of the first division and in as many as possible of the second, 
we have given the opening and closing words; and in some of the most 
important we have indicated the line endings of the tides. 

We have not considered it advisable to list merely devodonal writings, 
sermons, transladons of the Chrisdan Doctrine, Catechism, etc., of which 
there are so many, both in Spanish and in the Filipino idioms and dialects. 
Neither have we cited all linguisdc MSS., of which also there are many. 
We have endeavored, however, to cite specially those documents of politi- 
cal, civil, social and economic value, our constant desire being to furnish 



BIBLIOGRAPHY-INTRODUCTION ^ 3 

sources for the study of the history of the Philippines and the Filipino peoples 
and other inhabitants of the Archipelago in all lines that tend toward human 
development - in a word, of the great forces that make for intellectual and 
spiritual achievement and progress, either through governmental, or social 
and economic (including ecclesiastical) activities. MSS. are cited for 
almost each year of the Spanish regime; and thus 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 wherever possible we have given location and pressmark. We make no 
pretense at completeness. That is impossible in one single volume. But 
we do present a representative list of titles to MSS. gathered from many 
sources, 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. 

PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

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 
grabadof 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 reli- 
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, the 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 
documents 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 all public records into one central point, namely, at Manila. A 
new bureau was accordingly created, which was known as the Bureau of 
Archives, Patents, Copyrights, 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. Shortly after the 
creation of the bureau, one of the younger Filipino scholars, Clemente 



14 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

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. 
2^1ueta, 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, especially 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 State; 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 

1 See Phil. Commission Rtport for 1901, i, pp. 130-132. See also the later reports of the 
Philippine Commission for matter regarding the archives. 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. 



BIBLIOGRAPHY- INTRODUCTION ^ 5 

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

SPAIN 

Archivo de Indias,-Thtse 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 different 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.e.y 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 roughly classify into secular and ecclesiastical, but 
the division is often not sharp, and many documents are strangely out of 
place. 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 " Secretaria de Nueva Espaiia;" those entitled merely "Audien- 
cia de Filipinas;" and the documents sent by the 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" (i.^., "Original consulta- 
tions relating to said Audiencia"). The period embraced for this division 
is for the years 1586-1700; and the pressmark proper is "estante 67, cajon 



1 6 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

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 that is 
somewhat hard on the MSS.; for since many of them are written and 
printed on the so-called rice paper, which has become brittle 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 centuiy are divided first into those of secular and ecclesiastical 
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 legajos, 
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 other divisions 
dut 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.

Biblioteca Nacional," This is located at Madrid, and is under charge of 
the eminent 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 ride and 
pressmark. See Gallardo's Ensayo for a list of MSS. and books, among 
which are noted some of the MSS. of this 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. 

Archivo-Historico Nacional.- These archives are located in the same 
building as the above library, and are under the directorship of Vicente 
Vignau y Balester. The most important coUecrion containing Philippine 
material is the ddulario indico. 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- 
crees concern the Philippines, of which the last four volumes conuin the 
greater number, 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 ddulario^ and investigation is a matter requiring padent 
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 doubdess in Manila as well. The archives also possess 



30 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

a number of long expedientes concerning the expulsion of the Jesuits from 
the Philippines. 

R£al 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 los 
Jesuitas, or Jesuit papers. These were confiscated from the Jesuit con- 
vents at the time of the expulsion, and number in all about 225 volumes of 
bound MSS., pamphlets, and broadsides. Many of these papers relate to 
the Philippines. These consist of letters from various missionaries, reports 
on the missions, polemical writings, etc. Some of the reports on the 
islands and mission work are among the most important and interesting 
records of the islands. As a rule they were made by comparadvely 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 Collection 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 ro3ral order 
given him by Carlos III to write a history of Spanish discoveiy and con- 
quest. Special orders were issued to the Spanish public archives, then 
jealously guarded, to give Munoz eveiy 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 title to the index of this col- 
lection reads as follows: "Index to the collection of MSS. belonging to the 
history of the Indias written by Don Juan Baudsta Munoz and found at his 
death in his library. Made by royal order, with the intervention of Don 
Jose Navarro, member of his Majesty's Council, alcalde of his royal house, 
and Cortes, and Don Cenon Alonso, chief official of the portfolio of Grace 
and Justice of Indias, by Don Joaquin Traggia and Don Manuel Abella, 
members of the Real Academia de la Historia.'' This index lists the fol- 
lowing important MSS.: Historia de las islas i indios de Bisayas^ by Al- 
dna, 2 vols, (which a later note says is not now in the collection); portions 
of books i, ii, and iii of Chirino's Historian a portion of Riquel's Relacion^

missions for 1 682-1 683; a portion of the Historia de las Islas Molucas^ trans-

(oT at the Lenox branch of the N. Y. Public Libraiy exists what is known 
by the name of the Munoz Collection, together with a copy of Traggia*i 
index (see post^ pp. 41, 42). The chief value of Munoz's work lies in the fact 
that he located many important MSS., among them the copy of Alexander 
VI's bull Inter catera^ of May 3, 14939 and some of the important MSS. 
conserved in the Portuguese archives. 

Museo-Bihlioteca de Uhramar," This museum and libraiy was founded 
in Madrid, in 1887 at the close of the Philippine exposition of that year; 
and its institution was due primarily to the efforts of Victor Balaguer, then 
minister of the colonies (see his Islas Filipinas^ Madrid, 1895). The 
museum contains the exhibits of the exposition which were left as a perma- 
nent deposit. They form an excellent display of Philippine products and 
curios, which give a good idea of the progress of the arts and sciences in the 
islands, the methods employed in industiy, etc. The collections of Philip- 
pine woods and shells are especially fine. There are a few paintings by 
Filipino artists, which do not show any preeminent merit, one of whidi is 
a copy of a Murillo. Concerning the libraiy, we translate as follows from 
Balaguer, ut supra: "The libraiy 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 the base of that possessed by the ministry of the 
colonies, together with the works whidi have been gathered, book by book, 
by dint of the persevering zeal and benedictine toil of the board at its head; 
the collection 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 veiy rare books formerly owned by Don 
Justo Zaragoza; two fine colonial libraries obtained by the Council of 
Filipinas and generously yielded by that corporation in order to swell the 
library of the above institute, which on that account has been able to com-

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 Ardeda, 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 Retd.-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 hidrogrdfico,- 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 collection 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 Marrin 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 investigations in this bureau must be obtained through the gov- 
ernment, either directly or by means of the intervention 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 enthusiastic 
worker, who is endeavoring to reduce the chaotic disorder of the archives 
to a well-ordered system. It has been estimated 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 off 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 
contultations, 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. 

Archive de Alcala de Henares.- Montero 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 nothing of special importance in them. The project has been broadied 
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. 

Colegio de Agustinos^ Valladolidr- 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 Colegio 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 Philipinas^ 
dated 1720. More noteworthy is the collection in the same convent belong- 
ing to Eduardo Navarro, O. S. A., one of the foremost Augustinian scholars 
in Spain. Father Navarro's collection of books shows the various divi- 
sions of history, biography, description, linguistics, 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 Maiia 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, Catalogo, p. xiii, says that the Augusrinian convent and colegio 
de la Vid (Burgos) does not possess as many books as the Valladolid con- 
vent, but that it is rich in chronicles and vocabularies. 

Collections 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 Collantes. 

Collection of the Compania General de Tahacos de Filipinas.- This is the 
largest 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, Clemente Miralles de Imperial, who began to make his collections in 



34 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

1883, with the intention of amassing into one collection 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 diarge of the coUecdon is Jose Sanchez Garrigos, from ^om 
the informarion regarding this collection is in part derived. According to 
Retana's latest bibliographical work, Aparaio hihliografUo^ ^ich is the 
catalogue of this coUecrion, it contains 4,623 different rides. In 1900, the 
Company purchased the magnificent collection of Retana, ^ich consisted 
of 2,697 rides, which the latter claims that he sold at a sacrifice. The du- 
plicates obtained with Retana's CoUecrion, 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 pliegos, 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 ediring his 
edirion of Colin's Labor evangelica. Of books, there are in this incompa- 
rable collection, 1,702 ritles in linguisrics; 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 collecrion 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 others 
(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 bibliogrdfico^ i, Retana's introduction; and Pastells's edirion 
of Colin's Labor evangelica^ i, pp. 236-238. The Company very generously 
allows research among its treasures. Since American occupation, it should 
be said that more attention has been paid to the collection of foreign 
books. 

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 
missionary 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- 
danao 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 



BIBLIOGRAPHY-INTRODUCTION 3 5 

evangelica^ 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 
Pastells possesses a few of the old chronicles, and of important MSS. that of 
Murillo Velarde's Historia. In addition he had the use of the MS. of Chi- 
rino'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 the Philippines. 

Other Spanish Cottections.- According to Retana {Aparato hihL^ i, p. xzxv), 
there were few collectors in Philippina until 1898. Agustin Maria de 
Castro had an excellent collection as early as 1780, especially of the 
writings of Augusrinians. Francisco Zapater, who was in the Philippines 
in the middle of the nineteenth century, 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- 
cellent MSS., of ^ich Retana acquired two. Vicente Barrantes's collec- 
tion obtained more prestige than it deserved. It consisted of about 600 
titles, 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 corridos were bought for the Ayer Collection, and others of 
the collection 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 v^s 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 collection 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 titles, among which is the only copy known 
of Arte y regies de la lengua tagala^ by San Jose (Bataan, 1610). He also 
possesses two copies of Collantes's Historian 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 obtain 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'Serclaes, both of 
Sevilla, conuined some good Philippine titles. The universities of Sevilla 
and Barcelona, and the provincial library at Toledo possess a few of the 
older historical titles. 

* According to Retana; some of the MSS. of this collectbn, howerer, now owned by 
the Ayer CoUection, have a decided value. One often tutpects Retana^t judgment to be 
warped by personal feeling, which leads him to assign less merit than is due. 



36 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

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., and many MSB. relating to the Portuguese settlements in the 
Orient. Some of the Muiioz transcripts were made from documents in these 
archives. The public library 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 lihraries 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 Philippine 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 
arduous. 

Biblioteca del Faticano,- The library of the Vadcan 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. Retana, /m- 
prenta^ col. 50, citing from Agu^n Maria de Castro's Osarioy 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 Vadcan, one is forced to the conclusion that direct communicadon 
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 insdtution. 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). 



BIBLIOGRAPHY - INTRODUCTION 3 7 

Bihliotica Ambrosiana.- This is one of the most famous lihraries in the 

world. It was founded in Milan in 1609 by Cardinal Federigo BorromeOy 

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

books and MSS. Of books the library contains about 175,000, and of MSS. 

over 8,000. It contains veiy few Philippine 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 post^ p. 144, and Robertson's 

Magellan's voyage around the worlds ii, "Bibliography." There is also a 

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

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

titles. ^ 

r ranee 

Bihliotheque Natiomde.- The Bibliotheque Nationale is the only libraiy 
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 in the catalogue of printed books now under process of com- 
pilation. In the manuscripts department, the two diief treasures are the 
two French Pigafetta MSS. (see post^ p. 240, and Robertson's Magellan's 
voyage around the worlds ii, " Bibliography"). Some of the Philippine 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 
countiy. Worthy of mendon is also the relarion by the so-called Genoese 
pilot of Magalhaes's vo3rage. Cataloguing is carefully done and research 
is much more easy than in the Spanish and Italian archives. 

England 

British Museum.- As on most subjects, the Brirish Museum contains 
good collecrions 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 the Spanish language, but there are a few in English. 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 Collecrion. There are also a number of manuscript maps, 
which have some interest. 

Menrion must also be made of the Phillipps Collecrion which is con- 
served at Cheltenham, England. This contains the Nancy MS. of Pigafet- 
ta's relarion (see post^ pp. 239, 240; and Robertson's Magellan's voyage 
around the world). 



38 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

Other European collections 

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

Retana (Imfrenta\ and Pardo de Tavera (Bihl. fil,^ p. 9), say that the 
University of Leyden contains a good collection of Philippine books and 
documents, as does also the national libraiy 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 titles. 

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

Mexico 

Biblioteca Nacional.-We have made no personal examination of this 
library, but from the close connecdon 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. £. Bolton, of 
Texas State University (now making invesdgarions in Mexico for the Car- 
negie Insdtution), reports that the Philippine matter in this library is con- 
tained in three volumes. One of these (consisdng of 755 pages) is enritled 
''Ano de 1669. Gen.^ Franc.^ Garcia del Fresno. Traslado de los Autos 
que precedieron p.* encomendarle los nat.* Del pu.^ de Vigan y sus sugetos 
en la Prov.* de Ylocos, que gozava. En segunda Vida D.* Ana de Sarate 
por mrd. de su Magestad." The two other volumes contain copies called 
''Fragmentos de la Historia de Filipinas del P. F. Juan de la Concepcion, 
y Copia de la de China del P.® Jesuita Guzman." We are also indebted for 
the following informadon 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 secdon endded "Reales Cedulas." This secdon consists of 
210 bound volumes of original cedulas and orders addressed to the viceroys 
by the Spanish monarchs for the years 1609-182 1. Cedulas reladng to the 



BIBLIOGRAPHY-INTRODUCTION 3 9 

Philippines^ and treating of many different matters, are found in almost 
every volume. Many treat of the Acapulco galleon, the general commerce 
of the 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 1 755-1821, a chronological file of the reports of the 
viceroys to the Spanish office. Many of these relate to the Philippines. 
The subjects dealt with in the ten communications touching the Philippines 
in the first volume are typical. These are as follows: the despatch of the 
Acapulco galleon; procedure in case of prizes; appointment of the arch- 
bishop 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 section entitled "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 authorities, both of Mexico and the Philippines; the 
tribunal of the Real Consulado of Manila; and various officials of the royal 
exchequer of Mexico. In addidon, there are reports of the proceedings 
of the Audiencias of Manila and Mexico, and expedientes relating to va- 
rious miscellaneous matters. The various documents are roughly classified 
chronologically. The matters most frequently met in the correspondence 
are: current events in the Philippines; trade regularions; the Acapulco 
galleon; remittance of situados; mission funds and supplies; transporta- 
rion of missionaries; recruiting 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: «.^., an extended report (1755)9 
of the eruprion of the volcano of Taal (with a map); the report of 1755 con- 
cerning the expulsion of the infidel Chinese from the Parian, and the Moro 
raids; and the reports of 1757 concerning the Moro raids, the recepdon at 
Manila 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;" "Misibnes;" "Califomias;" 
and "Historia." In a general way, all the subjects mendoned above are 
scattered through all these secdons, but yet there is some differendadon. 
The secdon of Marina pardcularly contains much material concerning the 
movements of vessels, whedier 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 secdon 
"Historia" is mainly of the class just described. In "Impresos Oficiales" 



40 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

are found numerous printed edicts, circulars, ordinances, and regulations, 
concerning Philippine trade in the eighteenth century. Vol. iv contains 
the Ordinan%as de la Compania de Comercio formada en la Ciudad de 
Manila f IJSS' Vols, i, iv, viii, and ix of the section "Misiones" contain 
Philippine material. In vol. viii are documents relaring to the €^a pia 
of the college of San Andres (1789); and matter regarding the supplies of 
the Recollect province of San Nicolas. Vols, iv and ix contain accounts 
by missionaries (1665-1796). Vol. xxii of the secdon "Califomias" 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 relarive to Dominican and Augus- 
tinian missions in the Califomias and Philippines (i 634-1 751). In vol. 
xlvii are numerous documents relative to Mourelle's voyage "by the new 
route of the equinoctial" (1780-1781). These include the diaries of Mou- 
relle and other officers of the expedition. 

Musio 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 little 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 Espana. Some of these letters are dated as early as 1632. 
but most of them are of the eighteenth century. Some of the reports treat 
of the religious affairs of the entire Orient as well as of the Philippines, 
Considerable matter relating to the ecclesiastical history of the islands 
is to be found in a series of five volumes entitled Manuscritos varios and 
belonging to the Lancaster- Jones Collection. These papers, many of 
which evidently came from the archives of the archbishopric of Mexico, 
date from 1567 to 1819. The Museo Nacional also contains a copy of 
Rojo's Operaciones del arxobispo de Manila (Sept. 7, 1 763; see post ^ pp. 23 1, 
232). In legajo i of a series of seven legajos is found the journal of the 
same archbishop (Dec. 23, 1762; see post^ 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 titles we obtained through the courtesy of Camillus Crivelli, 
S. J., of Mexico. 

United States 

Within the United States are several notable collections 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 collections, and the books found their way to the library shelves in 



BIBLIOGRAPHY-INTRODUCTION 4 ^ 

various manners. At least one of the books in the Boston Public Library 
was part of the Bowditch Collecdon, and others are in the Ticknor Collec- 
tion. There are no MSS. in Harvard, and Boston Public numbers less 
than half a dozen. The State Library of Boston can boast only of a royal 
decree of Madrid, September 30, 1639, ^" answer to a peddon of Grau y 
Monfalcon; 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 Libraiy, 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 world\ the rare Morga, 
various editions of Leonardo de Argensola, several editions of Gonzalez 
de Mendoza's Historia, etc. 

Lenox,- The Lenox branch of the New York Public Library contains 
a goodly list of the 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, the well-known book collector, about the year 1848. 
The MSS. of this collection (see BulUtin^ v, July, 1901) relate mainly to 
Spanish America. Its source is given as follows: "The greater part of this 
collection was formed by Don Antonio de Uguina, of Madrid. It com- 
prises almost everything of interest that was collected for his friend Mufioz 
for the Hisioria del Nuevo Mundo^ of which only the first volume was pub- 
lished. Uguina was also the friend of Navarrete, and furnished him with 
many of the materials for his Coleccion de Fiages. After the 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- 
lection afterwards came into the possession of O. Rich, who added these 
to some MSS. from the collection of Lord Kingsborough, and a few pro- 
cured by himself in Spain." In all the collection forms 142 folio and 
quarto volumes, bound in morocco. No. 6 of this collection consists of a 
series of papers on the possession of the Moluccas. In regard to the docu- 
ments that purport to come from the Mufioz Collection, see ante^ p. 30. 
The presence of these documents raises the interesting question as to which 
are the real Mufioz documents. There are copies of the Loarca Relacion 
both in Lenox and in R. A. de la H. On the other hand, the first vol. of 
Alcina's Relacion^ which the Traggia index at R. A. de la H. says is miss- 
ing from the collection, is found in the Lenox libraiy. The question can 
only be satisfactorily solved by a detailed examination of bodi the MSS. of 



42 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

R. A. de la H. and Lenox. We lean rather to the theoiy that Munoz's tran- 
•cripts 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 the 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 Libraiy 
Company owns a copy of Murillo Velarde's Historia^ and an Extracto hit' 
torial. The Widener branch of the Public Library owns a set of Concep- 
don's Historia, The American Philosophical Society owns a copy of 
Salazar's Historia. 

Library of Congress,- For the extent and scope of the various collections 
in the Libraiy of Congress, see the bibliography issued by the Libraiy, 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 titles, although there are 
numerous titles that the library should have which are lacking. The only 
library in the United States that can at all compete with it, so far as general 
Philippina is concerned, is the Ayer Collection in Chicago. It has but 
few MSS. treating directly of the Philippines; but does possess all the 
records that were conserved in the island of Guam. These treat in general 
of the Marianas Islands. Unfortunately, they were conserved in a place 
that v^s liable to visitation by the sea at times, and consequently the MSS. 
are in a poor state of preservation, even most of the more recent. A letter 
to Herbert Putnam, Librarian of Congress, conserved with the Guam MSS., 
states that the archives of Guam contained in August, 1897-August, 1900, 
documents of at least three classes: I. Trials and residencias. The most 
interesting is that 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 time was Alexander Selkirk, ^o had but 
recently been rescued from the island of Juan Fernandez. II. Inventory 
of effects belonging to the Jesuits at the time of their expulsion. This 
shows their flourishing condition and bears testimony to their introduction 
of useful arts. III. Letter books of various governors stored in the gov- 
ernment house, Sept. 26, 1831-March 4, 1892, 11 vols. These letters con- 
tain social and economic information, records the earthquakes, etc. There 
is one volume marked "Department of War" (April 25, 1863-September 



BIBLIOGRAPHY-INTRODUCTION 43 

169 1875); and a file of Manila newspapers whidi are in poor condition. 
The libraiy 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 the 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 Hiilippine titles. The only rare work is Combes's Historia. 

AyiT Collection,- This is a private collection ^idi is owned by Edward 
E. Ayer, of Chicago. As soon as the American victory in Manila Bay was 
cabled to the United States, Mr. Ayer, ^o has long been an enthusiastic 
collector of Americana, ordered his agents both at home and abroad to buy 
Hiilippina. 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 dtles 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 the C. G. de T. de F., 
and were formerly owned by W. E. Retana. In regard to MSS., this col- 
lection shows the best material outside of A. de I. The MSS. embrace 
almost the entire period of the Spanish regime, and while not so remarkable 
in point of number of individual pieces, it is remarkable in point of value. 
To menrion only a few of the more important MSS., one finds here the 
Viana MSS., which contain so much useful and exact economic and gov- 
ernment material; the Bemaldez MS., and another MS. of the early nine- 
teenth centuiy in which is found mudi that is extremely valuable; the Anda 
MSS.; the ecclesiastical MSS., which throw light on the troubles between 
the secular and regular branches of the clergy; the Ventura del Arco tran- 
scripts, copied from R. A. de la H.; and finally the two Rizal MSS., 
which throw not a litde light on Rizal's life. Some of the MSS. were for^ 
merly in the Retana and Barrantes collections. Many were purdiased from 
Vindel, and some through Chadenat. All the 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 songs. These 
are translated into Tagalog by three Mangyans, Bocon, Damdam, and 
Cobla, and an English version has been made by Fletcher Gardner. The 
rolls are accompanied by papers on whidi are written the songs in the three 
languages. Only the Mangyan is written on the rolls. The songs are 
mainly begging and courting songs. These rolls are valuable ethnological 
contributions. With unexampled generosity, Mr. Ayer, of his own voli- 
tion, threw open his magnificent collection to us in the preparation of our 
series, allowing the free use of his material in any way we deemed best. 



44 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

University of Calif omia.- Frof. Bernard Moses replies to our in- 
quiiy that the only MSS. "relating to the Philippines" in the library of 
die 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 
carry out this design." 

Liland Stanford, Jr,^ University.- This library possesses no rare printed 
Philippina. It does possess some MSS., all of which are modem, and 
some of them since American occupation. The collection embraces judi- 
cial, educational, revolutionary, and other papers. We present in brief in 
this place a note regarding the collection received from Melvin G. Dodge, 
associate librarian of the university, which was made by one of the instruct- 
ors of the university. We have not listed the MSS. among the manuscript 
titles.

BIBLIOGRAPHY-INTRODUCTION 47 

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 corridos or ro- 
mances, 17 other works resembling corridos. Many of these titles had 
formerly belonged to W. E. Retana. Pardo de Tavera possesses many 
linguistic titles, his collection eactending to all the languages 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 the Philippines. The vrark done by Dr. Frank R. Blake, of 
Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, holds chief place. A letter from Dr. 
Blake thus describes the work and its results: "The vrark in Philippine 
languages begun at the Johns Hopkins University in 1901 is still going on. 
It was designed to give instruction in the principal Philippine languages, 
and publish articles on various important topics of Philippine grammar. 
Beginning with 1901, instruction has been given in Tagalog, Bisayan, and 
Ilokan, as well as in the kindred idiom, Malay. A series of lectures on the 
native tribes of the Philippines was also given twice during the period. A 
scientific Tagalog grammar has been prepared, and manuals of other im- 
portant dialects have been projected. A number of articles 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.: 

"By F« R. Blake.- Study of Philippine languages at Johns Hopkins 
University; in American Anthropologist^ 1902, iv, p. 793. Sanskrit loan 
vrards in Tagalog; in J, H. U. Circulars^ IQ^S* no. 163, p. 63. Analogies

P in Tagalog; in Journal of American Oriental Society, 1904, xxv, pp. 287- 
301. 

"By L. B. Wolfenson.- The infixes /a, It, lo, in Tagalog; ibid., 1906, 
xxvii, pp. 142-146. 

"Other articles in a more or less advanced stage of completion await 
publication, the 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 dme." 

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 Chrisrian popula- 
tion into one common tongue. To this end he has compiled on cards a 
dictionary 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 the common language, and the attempt will be made to bring 
the words into general usage through the assistance of the literati and press. 
Dr. Doherty has gathered many phonograph records with specimens of the 
Tarious languages on them, 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 dictionary was ready for press, and he expected the Philippine 
government to publish it. The work was done throughout with the aid of 
native Filipinos of education. 

In answer to a letter of inquiry regarding his work, Willard A. Goodell, 
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 - sufficiendy so that I was able 
to preach in it for the last two years that I was in the islands - and although 
I did considerable work translating for our mission, upon our Hymnal, 
Sunday-school lessons, handbooks for native workers, etc., as well as 
supervising the translation of Stalker's Life of Christ, still I cannot really 
cite you to one work, 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 
regularly 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 



BIBLIOGRAPHY-INTRODUCTION 49 

that no Spanish friars had ever become perfectly idiomatic in their use of 
Tagalog. I have seen certain of their translations which were clearer to 
my Latin-trained mind than to the Tagalog in whose language they pur- 
ported to read. If I had been able to return for a second term of work, the 
translation 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 that of the A. de I. (with the possible exception of the following). For 
a list of these see Torres Lanzas's Relacion descriptiva de los mapas^ pianos ^ 
etc,^ de Filipinas (Madrid, 1897). See also post^ p. 59, for the ride 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 coUecdon 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 Brirish Museum is a large collection of 
printed maps, and a few manuscript maps. The latter are as follows: 

Bowery, T.:- Island of Mindanao or Magendanao with chart. Add.

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 
from Magellan's time (reproductions) to 1903. General maps of various 



so THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

parts of the world, 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 the 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^ from an engraving of 1744. It was also 
reproduced by Bellin in 1752, and in his Pet, atlas mar, (Paris, 1764); and 
in Hist. Besch, Rgnen (Amsterdam, 1758), xvii, 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 atlases (bodi 
world and of special localities), which will contain a Philippine section. 
He is also preparing a bibliograhpy of universal cartography with copious 
aimoutions. This will contain much useful information concerning maps 
and their makers. The War Department Library in Washington possesses 
some good Spanish maps. The Hydrographic Office of the War Depart- 
ment at Washington has published various maps; and the office gathers 
data for maps and charts from every available source, by which they cor- 
rect the maps of the Coast and Geodetic 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 time 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 production. There 
is a complete set of these maps and charts at the office of the Coast and 
Geodetic 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 
post^ p. 64). See the annual reports of the Philippine branch of the Sur- 
vey in the Reports of the Philippine Commission. Under the auspices of 
the government was published in 1900 the atlas prepared under the care of 
the Jesuits at Manila, which accompanies the two-vol. Archipielago filipina. 
Many maps and coast and harbor charts are reproduced in the Gazetteer 
of the Philippine Islands (Washington 1902). The American Geographi- 
cal Society issued a map in 1905 made up from the then latest data of the 
War Department. See also post^ in the activities of the Bureau of Insular 
AflFairs. 

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, 17 19, by Rob't Friend, and showing various Oriental islands, is

drawn on parchment. There is also a loose printed map which shows the 
lower course of the Rio Grande de Mindanao, dated 1886, which was issued 
by the ^'Seccion topografica" of the Philippine government. 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. Ayer'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 
dironologically 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 Lbtiratutvimichnis ( q, v.^post^ 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. 
XLix, p. 205, note 130. 

Photographs and vf>iitf.-The Philippine American government pos- 
sesses a large collection of photographs. Hon. Dean C. Worcester, of the 
Philippine Commission, also possesses a fine collection, many of which are of 
great value ethnologically. Through the cooperation of Mr. Worcester, 
Mr. Ayer has obtained copies of all the photographs in the above two col- 
lections. These relate to all the tribes of the Philippines that have been 
studied, illustrating manners and customs, industries, etc., and to various 
localities. In all Mr. Ayer's collection numbers more than 5,000, all of 
which are 5 X 7 inches in size. His collection is accompanied by a type- 
written index and description. 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 third collection of photographs. The 
first instalment of this collection was sent by Rounseville Wildman, 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 the donor. The third instalment is an 
almost complete set of the Worcester collection. The fourth instalment 
consists of some negatives sent in by the German scientist, A. B. Meyer. 
Photographs are extremely valuable for ethnological study.^ 

*The Harptr^s WttUy for March 31, 1883 (toI. zxfit, no. 1371) publithet an interetting 
and curious article hj Lakadio Heam, the famous writer, so well known for his articles on 
Japanese life. The article is called ** Saint Malo. A lacustrine Tillage in Louisiana.** This 
fiUage is located at the southeastern comer of Lake Borgne, not far distant from New 
Orleans, and was the home, sajs Heam, who was sent as special correspondent hj the abore 
paper to lisit the settlement, for about a half centurj, of a colony of Tagilogs from the Phil- 
ippme Islands. In this marshy country, they lived as nearly in the manner of their own land 
as possible, with the exception that those ^dio had families kept them in New Orleans, as there 



5^ THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

Museums,- The two most notable museums are that of the Museo-Bi- 
biioteca de Ultramar (already described, ante^ pp. 31, 32), and that of the 
National Museum, Washington. Owing to the crowded condition of the 
latter, it has been impossible to suiubly display all of the Philippine collec- 
tion. Besides a few models 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 collecrion is to show the 
serious industrial life of the inhabitants of the Philippines. From this col- 
lecrion, trained scientists are studying the connecrion of the American Indian 
with the Orient -in short, are endeavoring to reconstruct into ungible 
facts the story of the Pacific Ocean, and migrations of peoples across it. 
The National 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 the 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 time. The 
publication department of the bureau is doing an important work in con- 
nection with the insular territory belonging to the United States. As regards 
the Philippines (and the same is true of all American insular possessions), 
the various lines of activity 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 the U. S., which are not published as government documents. 

3. Collection of all reports and all monographs issued by the Philippine 
government. 

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 the 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 the bureau number 2,505, and there are 450 
diflPerent kinds. They include charts, blue prints, and topographical maps, 
were no women in the place. The houses were built on piles rising out of the water or marshy 
ground, and the under part was reserved as in the Philippines for swine and fowls. All the 
men were fishermen, and their chief diversion was gambling. They spoke their own language 
or Spanish. Above all, they maintained their identity, and refused to be merged in the 
population about them. Some interesting views are shown with this article. There is also 
at the present time a colony of Malays in the British West Indies. 



BIBLIOGRAPHY-INTRODUCTION S3 

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 the land laws of the 
Philippines has also been published. The Bureau also publishes annually 
the acts of the Philippine Commission, and the report of the same. A 
second edition of the Gazetteer 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 
facilitate research in the many rich government documents that have been 
published on the 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 the 
bureau are the galley proofs of the five volumes of insurgent papers, which 
are compiled by Captain John R. M. Taylor, U. S. A. These papers, not- 
withstanding their importance, are still awaiting a special appropriation from 
Congress in order that they 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 the compilation. 

The pamphlets, monographs, etc., being published continually by the 
various branches of the 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 entire Spanish regime there was but little scientific 
study that merited the name. There is an excellent opening for earnest 
•ciendfic 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 offered 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 titles, but have made no effort to list them all. He 
who desires to avail himself of such study may consult the catalogues of the 
following: Anllo, Capdeville, Cuesta, Bernardo Rico, Gabriel Sanchez, 
Perdiguero, Victoriano Siiarez, Viuda de Rico, Eugenio Garcia Rico, and P.

(for instance, see Estadismo, u, p. *346)y Vidal y Soler shows breadth of mind and grasp 
in the titles listed. Besides the piirely Philippine titles (section ii), the other divisions 
are: general works on colonization and voyages; the Malayan archipelago - Java, 
Sumatra, Borneo, Timor, Molucas, and Celebes; English India - Hindottan, Ceylon, 
Birmania, and Malacca; China and Japan; and Cochinchina, Cambodga, Anam, and 
Siam. English and Dutch titles are listed. Naturally some titles of these diTisiooa 
contain Philippina also. Arranged alphabetically. The edition of this book was limited

There are two parts with the above title. On the title-page of part i, is the imprint 
**Dnick Ton Dr. Karl Pickert in Leitmeritz." The title-page to part a shows no imprint. 
The preface of part i (dedicated to J. C. Labhart-Lutz, consul at Manila) has a preface 
dated Leitmeritz, July 14, i88a. Pp. 1-79 contain the Focabuiar, of which Retana sayt 
many of the words are what are called ** Kitchen Spanish,** or Spanish words Tagalized. 
The bibliography is divided into three parts: I. Linguistic titles (printed and manuscript) , 
pp. 83-88. n. Printed titles, pp. 91-127. m. Manuscripts (other than linguistic), 
pp. ia]8-i3i. On the obverse of p. 131 are two other linguistic titles, and one printed title. 
The preface of part a (dedicated to T. H. Pardo de Tavera) is dated ^*Leitmeritz, July 15, 
1885.** The Focabuiar occupies pp. i-a5; and the bibliography, pp. a9-35 (Linguistic 
titles, printed and manuscript), and pp. 39-^ (printed and manuscript), in all, citing 431 
numbers (some of which contain several titles). A note on the title-page of the Ayer copy 
•ays that this woric was not sold in the market. Notwithstanding their inaccuracies and 
ent>rs, these vocabularies will be found extremely useful for preliminary studies of the 
Philippines. The titles listed are not confined to the Spanish. See Pardo de Tavera,

The CorridoSf as explained by Barrantes, constitute the popular poetry of the Filipinos, 
and are comparable to the old Spanish romances, relations, etc Fif^-six titles are re- 
corded, each accompanied by a Spanish translation, and to each one the beginning and 
conclusion are given, and various comments. Retana (Aparato biU^ iii, p. 1068), says 
that Barrantes has listed under the title of Corridos, titles not property so. The Ayer 
Collection contains many titles of Corridos. Retana, Catdlogo, p. riii, criticises the biblio- 
graphical work of Barrantes severely for lack of precision, but praises his comments.

parts - introduction, in which is given some history of printing in the Philippines from 
its introduction to the present era; and a list of ^^works dted by Father S^iga, those 
consulted by us for the compilation ol these appendices, and other works which have been 
the object of our examination through their scientific merit, or because of their rarity.** 
Pp. 105^-123^ comprise a valuable list of ^*the presses, printers, and places where there

valuable Gayangos collection), are some facsimiles oiF title-pages of rare imprints. In the 
prdlogo of voL i, there is bibliographical matter by Retana on pp. vii-zzzviii, in which 
various interesting and important details concerning Maitinez de Z<Uiiga*s writings are to 
be found. On p. xviii, it is to be noted that Retana mentions the translation of Le 
Gentil made by Martinez de Z^UUga (f .v., p. 374), the location of which he docs not know, 
and asserts - following the statement of Mardhez de Zdifiiga, viz., ^* although M. Le 
Gentil does not believe it; see my note to these voyages, 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 
Zdfiiga simply made the statement in view of the fact that it was ready for the press. See

Lanzas, dated Sevilla, December, 1894; and **Peri6dicot maniMcritot,** hf Descngaftoa 
(Retana*t nom de plume), taken from La Ocumia EspaAda, of Manila, Oct^ 1887. 
This work was first publidied in Tarious numbers 6t La Potkica dt EspaMa m FUiphuu 
(9.V., anUy p. 57), and the forms as published there were utilized for the abore puMicatioo, 
so that many of the right-hand pages are blank or almost so (see Pardo de TaTera*s 
BM, fi^ p. 354). Reedited and enlarged, it is published as a monograph in Retana*s 
AparOto biU,, iii, nos. 446i-4623. 

Epitome de la bibliografia general de Filipinas. 1 895-1 898. 
This is published in Retana^s Archho (Madrid, 1895-1898) as follows: I. No. 11, 
pp. 84, titles, 1-270; n. No. 13, pp. 56, titles, 271-505; IIL No. 5, pp. 48, titles, 506-720; 
rV. No. 9, pp. 98, titles, 721-1,167. This was to have been continued in future Tolumet 
of the Jrehho, but the publication of the series stopped until 1905, and the epitome was 
nerer resumed. However, since the titles published in these four volumes are those for- 
merly contained in the collection owned by Retana, and sold to the Compafila general de 
Tabacos de Filipinas, Barcelona, the continuation will be found in Retana^s BAliografia 
fiipina (Madrid, 1898), and all the titles will be found as well in Retana^s Aparau 
bibl. The first four yolumes, bearing dates 1895, 1896, 1897, and 1898, respecdrdy, 
were published by La Viuda de M. Minuesa de los Rios, and the fifth volume, dated 1905, 
by Librerfa general de Victoriano Suirez. The documents published by Retana are rare 
imprints, original MSS. from various archives, and contemporazy compilations. He also 
publishes in the first four volumes, a partial list of the books in his library (see above); 
and in volume v, some historical bibliographical notes (see below). For the titles of the 
documents, etc. presented by Retana in the first four vols., see Griiflin^s List; and Pardo 
de Tavera's Bibl. jU., p. 355, no. 2354. The contenu of the fifth vol. are as follows: L

One hundred copies printed at the cost of W. £. Retana. Consists of 404 titles, of which 
no details are given. All the titles of this work will be found in Retana's Imprenta en

published in La PoiUica de Espana, vii, pp. 20-23, 47~49> 67~^« ^^^ the title immediately 
following. Medina takes high rank as a bibliographer, as his Philippine and American 
bibliographies show. A native of Chile, and at first interested solely in American bib- 
liographical research, he was led to his research in Philippina by noting that it overiapa 
to a considerable degree with Mexicana. Much of Retana^s work appears to have been 
suggested by Medina. See other titles by Medina, postj pp. 59, 62, 80, 92.

Augustinians; Filipino engravers; general considerations in regard to Illipino printers 
and books; libraries of Filipino books. Following the introduction are several 
documents on printing in the Philippines. Retana sajs (Vindel, Cai^ogOf iv, p. 183, 
no. 1473X that this work is, strictly speaking, the first complete bibliography that has been 
compiled of printing in the Philippines. See the continuation of this work, post, p. 62.

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

Retana {Bibi, fU., p. 449) describes a Jir luxe edition (10 copies only). The above edi- 
tion was limited to 200 copies. This work was first published in tomo xcvii of the Anales 
de la univeriidad de Chile. Describes 667 titles. Medina defines "^Spanish bibliography 
of 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 having been listed in La Imprenta de Manila. Some 
documents from the Archivo de Indias are, however, presented in illustration of various 
titles. There aqe also numerous biographical notices, and many references to other 
bibliographers. The work is carefully done, and is one of the best sources for the study 
of Philippina. It is highly praised by Retana (Vindel*s CatdlogOf iv, p. 283, no. 1474).

Edidon limited to 85 copiet (5 it iuxt), onlj 40 of which were put on sale. In addition 
one was bound up for the author*! own um^ in which are manutcript additions and notes. 
This is now the property of the Compafila general de Tabacos de Filipinas, which pur- 
chased all the Retana collection. Describes 2,697 titles which are arranged chrono- 
logically. The prUcgo (pp. v-ziZTiii) contains Taluable information c onc erning his own 
and other bibliographies of Philippina; and in regard to Taluable collections of Philip- 
pina. It is to be noted in this connection that the statement that there are no printed 
books in ArduTo general de Indias is too sweeping. Those archires possess several of 
the rarer titles, among wiiich is Alvarez de Ahreu^s Extractc historid. On pp. zxiii- 
xzrii is a list of 1 12 newspapers that were published in the Philippines from 1811-1898. 
This work is carefully done and is of great use to the bibliographer and student. It 
contains few works outside of Spanish and the languages of the Philippines.

i, pp. vii, viii; iii, p. 1479) criticises this work harshly, seemingly with a great deal of per-

information. It was the aim of the compiler to furnish a good working bibUography 
rather than one replete with minute descriptions that would appeal more to the bibliophile.

Pdrex and Giiemes precede their bibliography with a reprint of the epitome of La im' 
prma m httmila of J. T. Medina, which appeared first in La Poikica de EspaHa en Fi/r- 
ptnof, and was later published in pamphlet form at Madrid by Retana. To the 404 
numbers of this epitome, they add nos. 405-1316. Medina^s epitome includes the years 
1593-1810; Pdrex and Giiemes eitend that period to 1840, and in their appendix, to Augut- 
tinian authors of the Philippines to the present time. They present much Taluable and 
interesting material to the bibliographer, and dte Tarious MSS. existing in their caawtat 
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 Beristain de 
Sousa, that the first book was printed in the Philippines in 1 c8i (the Arte y vocdbtJarte de 
la lengua tagda^ by Juan de Quifiones, O. S. A.), instead of the now generally accepted 
date of 1593, they are inclined to beliere that it may have a foundation on fact. In the 
compilation of thdr work, they used extensively the Ubraries of the convents of the Recol- 
lects, Franciscans, and Dominicans, that of the university of Santo Tom is, that of the 
Jesuits, and that of Dr. Pardo de Tavera. This, together with the work of Medina and 
Retana, offers a good survey of the Philippine press. Retana (Aparato bibl.), is severe on 
these authors and accuses them of not citing sources; but this asseition proceeds largely 
from personal feeling.

The author wu an official of the Council of the India. In his work he gives titles of 
both printed books and MSS., and although wanting at times in exactness, and often 
omitting dates, his work \m extremely useful. He was the first bibliographer to list Philip- 
pine titles. Tftulo Tii (pp. 80-82) is devoted entirely to Moluccan and Philippine titles. 
Retana, who sajs that this is the first colonial bibliography erer published, gives {Apa-

map is the first detailed chart of the Philippines published. It was engraved in 1744 by 
the native Filipino Nicolas de la Cruz Bagay, although the first engraving (published 
separately) seems to have been in 1734. It is even yet esteemed a good map. Besides 
using this author widely for annotation, we have made special use of his work as follows:

Rev. T. C. Middletoo, O. S. A., 99J9 tlut Rer. Catimiro Hemro, O. S. A., bishop of 
Nueva Ciceret, aided Barrantes greatly in this work. Appendix iT (pp. 253-256) is en- 
titled in die index ^Escritores que han produddo los oonventos de Filipinas.^ This is 
laudatory of the work of the friar in literary lines. Pardo de Tavera, BM. fl^ p. a8, no. 
91, says that the work has no value, and was written to defend the religious communities.

Retana (Jparatt bAl^ ii, p. 766) says that this is one of the best works for the study of 
Philippine bibliography. It contains many references to Philippine titles, and many ex- 
tracts and old documents, etc. We have used it extensively in the annotation of our series. 
As first written by Ferrando, it contained the Dominican history of the Philippines until 
1840. His unpublished work was reSdited by Fonseca, who added an appendix bringing 
the work down to date.

Published in Rtvista de FUipinas, a Manila newspaper, of which Del-Pan was the founder 
and director, and which was published from July i, 1875 ^ June> i^??* Retana calls 
this the best newspaper of the Philippines because of its scientific ralue (Vindd^s Caidlogo, 
iT, no. an). Del-Pan*s bibliographical work, Retana {Cat^ogo, pp. rii, riii; and Apargh 
to bAl^ i, p. iii) criticises harshly, howerer, saying that not a single title is stated definitely, 
and that it is poor in items; althou^ some df the comments are good. Viewed from the 
standpoint of use, and not merely of exact bibliography, it is to be feared that Retana*s 
obserrations, as is so often the case^ are too sweeping.

despatches announcing the treaty of peace with England and instructions for the evacua-

of Dr. Hiith {ea^ 1891); the Spanish Tenion being published in the Filipino paper Ptn6'

nese empire about the middle of the thirteenth century. It is of special interest as being 
the earliest known record of the Philippines, and was written about one and one-half cen- 
turies before Magalhies^s discoray. It shows that the Chinese had a well-established 
trade among the islands at this ear^ time, and it maj almost safelj be assumed that they 
had had such intercourse for centuries. Vol. zzziv, pp. 183-191 (see especially pp.

With this letter is enclosed a reladon by Salazar and others on the populadon of Manila 
and Luzon provinces, a description of the same, and an account of the tributes, etc. This 
relatioa is divided into two parts, the first part, dated Dec. 31, 1586, and made by the 
Manila cabildo; and the second part being added by Salazar under date of June 25, 1585 
(probably a printer^s error for 1 588). There is also some notarial matter. We translate 
from the document as published in Cartas dt Indias (Madrid, 1877), pp. 637-652. Vol.

don of the worship of the Tagilogs, their Gods, and their burials and supersddons,^* and 
undated. Inserted by Antonio de Padua {or de la Llave), a Franciscan missionary in the 
Philippines, 1 591-1645, and the first chronicler of his order in the Philippines, in his 
Cr6nica dt la santa y apostilica previncia di San Grtgorio (see pest). It was discovered 
in that MS. by the editor of Santa In^^s Cr6nica (Manila, 1892), who announced his 
find in the supplement of the Oceania espaHoia^ for June 6, 1886; and published the 
document in die above book, ii, appendix 3, pp. 592-598. This MS. was prepared by 
Plasenda at the request of Governor Santiago de Vera (made through the Franciscan 
provincial, San Pedro Baudsta) in order that the alcaldes-mayor might have some 
standard by which to administer jusdce to the nadves. This code was used in the legis- 
lation for the nadves until the changing condidons of Filipino society rendered it inopera- 
dve. For many years it was supposed to have been lost undl discovered as above related. 
Its appearance in the body of the acts of the Audienda (for 1 598-1 599, where we found a 
manuscript copy of it) indicates that it was discussed by that body in 1599. This is also 
published in Patemo^s Barangay (Madrid, 1892X pp< i-8c. Patemo alleged that he 
published from a MS. in his library, but Pardo de Tavera (BA/. fl^ p. 302, no. 1941)

The earliest printed ecclesiastical history treating entirely of the Philippines, and the 
earliest to print Filipino written characters. Some hare 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 Sucesos by Chirino. But it 
must be remembered that Morgans book circulated in 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 obsenration. Vindel, CadlogOf iii, p. i8o» 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 
Jos^ and died at Manila, September 16, 1635, at the ase of 6a See Pardo de TaTera,

Written in a charming style, although the work contains many inaccuracies. The 
author had access to all the documents of the archives. A reprint was issued in ""T^tt- 
goaa: Imprenta del Hospido Provincial, 1891,^ in a 40 of pp. dxiii, 407, (2), with a study 
on Leonardo de Argensola by Father Miguel Mir. The original has been translated into 
French (Amsterdam, 1706, 3 vols., 12^; and Amsterdam, 1707, a different setting than that 
of the preceding year); English (London, 1708; by Capt. John Stevens; another edition, 
171 1); and G^man (Franckfurth and Leipzig, 1 710 — translated from the French ed. 
of 1706). The French editions contain much more matter than the original, as they are 
considerably annotated. See Retana^s Aparato bibi.; Pardo de Tavera^s Bibl, fl^ p. 
34; and Griffin VLf if, p. 23. The greater part of the volimie treats of the Moluccas, and 
gives much of the early history of those islands. Considerable space is, however, devoted 
to the Philippines, namely, after p. 163, although there is also some Philippine matter 
preceding this. Li our series, we have translated and synopsized the Philippine matter.

MoRGA, Dr. Antonio de: — Svcesos de las Islas Filipinas. Dirigido a 
Don Cristoval Gomez de Sandoual y Rojas, Duque de Cea. Mexico: 
£n cafa de Geronymo Balli, 1609. Leaves (6), 172. 4°. 

Some volumes have 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. 
Mexici ad Indos: 1609.** Some volumes may have borne both title-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 dF 
the eariy civilization of the Filipinos; and writes with the assurance of one who had made 
a close study of his subject. The MS. of this work was dated 1607 and bore the following 
title: ^^Descubrimiento, conquista, pacificadony poblacion de las Islas Philipinas,** and 
was dedicated '* A la Magestad Catholica del Rqr Don Phelipe m, nuestro Sefior,** as ia 
mentioned by Tomibia, both title and dedication being changed in the printed edition. 
Chirino also {Rdaeion, 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 FiOpinas por el Doctor Antonio de Morga. Obra publicado en 
M^jico el alto de 1609 nuevamente sacada i luz y anotada por Jos< Rizal y precedida de 
un pi61ogo del Prof. Fernando Blumentritt. Paris: Libreria de Gamier Hermanos, 189a 
Pp. xxxvi, (1), 374. 8°. 

Unfortunately the transcript which was made for Rizal from the copy of the original 
coDBcrved in the British Museum was hastily made, and in consequence is not thoroughly 
accurate. This work and Rizal*s annotations are a protest against the frequcnidy- 
dprased oQDtempc of the Spaniards for the Filipinos; and while Rizal tried, perhaps, to 



BIBLIOGRAPHY-PRINTED BOOKS 1 1 1 

proTe too much, the work was timely, and brought ioto more general notice a book that 
well merited ttudj. One Jutto Zaragoza, shortly before Rizal, began to reprint Morgans 
book, but he died before the completion of his task. The book was reprinted, but the notes, 
prologue and life of Morga, which Zaragoza intended to insert, were never 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 Ayer Collection (see Vindel*s Catdlogo, iii, pp. 199, 
200; and Retana^s Aparato bAl,). An English translation was made by Sir Hcsiry Ed- 
ward John Stanley, with the following title: 

The Philippine Islands, Moluccas, Siam, Cambodia, Japan, and China, at the close of 
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 
Torres Straits, by the Hon. Henry E. J. Stanley. London : Printed for the Hakluyt Society, 
1868. Pp.zziT,43i. Portrait. Index. 80. 

The translation is poor, and Stanley has omitted the translation of the broad passages. 
We have used the annoutions of both Rizal and Stanley in our translation. Morgans 
work, which is scarce and conmiands a high price, is very Taluable for a study of ethnology, 
and conditions among the Filipinos during the eariy Spanish regime. Morga, it must be 
remembered, was a high official in the colony, and had access to all the documents in the 
archives of the islands, and was in addition a keen observer. See Pardo de Tavera, 
BAl. fl.f pp. 275-277; and Retana, Catdlogo, 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- 
simile). Editions of the original are found in the following libraries and collections: 
B. N. (Madrid); R. A. de la H. (Madrid); M. B. de U. (Madrid; a manuscript copy); 
B. R. (Madrid); C. 6. de T. de F. (Barcelona); University of Granada; B. M. (Lon-

This it called the first part of the history of the Jesuits in the Philippines and was pre- 
pared in large part from the manuscripts left by Chirino (see ^if, p. 283). The work 
is divided into the following books: I. Descri p don geographica, y historica de las lalas 
Filipinas. II. Del primer estado desta prouinda, en que fue solamcnte mission, cast 
de residenda, 7 colegio. m. Del tiempo qve esta fre Tice-prouinda subordinada a la de

en prouinda. His history does not extend beyond the year 1632. A reprint was begun 
in Manila in 1890^ but was never completed (see Retana, Catdlogo ebrrowdo^ p. 9). Tins 
book contains considerable bibliographical information, as CoUn has published in 000- 
densed form various letters written by Jesuits. Coiin's work was republished by Pablo 
Pastells, S. J., of the Jesuit college of Sarrii, Barcdona, as follows: 

Labor erangrtira de los obreros de la Compafifa de JesAs en las Islas Filipinas por d P. 
Frandsco CoUn de la misma Compafifa. Nuera ediddn ilustrada con copia de notaa y

These volumes are most copiously annotated with original MSS, drawn from the Ar- 
chivo general de Indias, and other documents, which make them a most valuable source 
for the history of 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 fint 
book of the original edition was published in the Neue Welt-Bott, iv, theil xxvi, by Joseph 
Kropff, S. J., in 1748, under the following title: ""Beschrdbung deren Philippinischien 
Insdn.'* This translation is accompanied by a map. Theil xxvii contains in transla- 
tion the list of Jesuit houses, churches, etc. (pp. 8ii4S20 in the original edition). In our

said that the Inquisition ordered this work collected and suppressed. I think that this 
is an error, and that this work has been confused with another work with a similar title; 
and the work prohibited by the Inquisition is that written by the Jesuit, Ramos.** This

contains matters of considerable Talue not elsewhere found. While treating espedallj of 
China, some space is given to the Philippines, in particular book Ti, chaps. iii-Tii, zoiy

of Francisco Colin (see Pardo de Tarera, BM, fl., p. i68, no. 1068). It was probablj in 
answer to this and to the treatment of the Chinese missions, that the following polenucal 
works were published, in all probability hj Jesuits: ^Memorial apologetico el emf^^ Sefior

he describes as consisting of four folios, signed ^Luis de Morales procurador de la Com- 
pafiia de Jesus.** It is likd7 that the mistake arose through these two reports being dted 
separatd7 (see Sonunervogd, ▼, col. 1283), who, howerer, describes the two rdations as 
part of the same publicadon, as consisting of a folio pamphlet of four leares. In no. 1769, 
Pardo de TaTera describes the entire relation with its two reports, which eridentl7 exists

The Frandtcan Torrubia wrote, in defense of the Jesuit missions in Mindanao and the 
maintenance of the Zamboanga fort, in 1736 (for title of which, see Retana and Griffin), 
a memorial, which was print^ (a Tiry few copies) for circulation in the Spanish court; 
it eulogized the services of F. Vald6s Tam6n. When the latter*s son was at Madrid 
later, no copy of this memorial could be found; accordingly, Patricio Joseph CasteUanos 
secured permission (1753) to reprint it; he dedicated it to the son. (See the ** Dedication** 
at the beginning, signed by CasteUanos.) Torrubia 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 much greater when the Spaniards had no fort in Mindanao. He gives the history of 
S^amboanga fort and of expeditions sent against pirates. The origin and funds of Miteri- 
oordia are related, its obras pfas, and its function as a Monte de piedad. In additioii to 
various notes, we have translated in our series from the 1753 edition as follows: ** Events

The fourth part of the Dominican history. See antt, Aduarte, Diego de; Santa Cruz, 
Baltasar de; and Salazar, Vicente de. One of the rarest of all Philippine titles. The 
unnumbered preliminary pages contain a chronological list of the conquistadors; a chrono- 
logical list of the archbishops of Manila; and a chronological list of the provincials of the 
Dominican province in the Philippines. See Pardo de Tavera, Bibl. fl., p. 107; and 
Retana, Aparato b$V,, i, pp. 401, 402. The latter gives a facsimile of the title-page. Co- 
llantes was a native of Villa de Herrin de Campos, professed in the convent of San Pablo 
at Valladolid in 1764, and arrived at Manila July 8, 1769. He filled several posts in his 
order, among them that of provincial. He died as bishop of Nueva Ciceres in 1808, at 
the age of 60. Copies of his book are found in the following libraries and coUectioiu: P.

of Chinese, Japanese, and other missions. Concepcion is one of the most impartial of the 
friar writers, and gi^es many interesting details of Philippine history. Martinez de ZOAi- 
ga condensed much of his Historia from this work. Retana {Aparato 6fb/., i, p. 419), 
says that a manuscript copy of Concepcion exists in Madrid, at the Biblioteca Nadonal, 
with pressmark I, 312. It shows variations from the printed edition. Concepcion*s 
style is not at all easy, and the work is wretchedly printed. Besides using this history 
largely for annotation throughout its period in our series, we have translated and synop- 
sized as follows: ** Early Recollect missions in the Philippines, 1606-1624;** in ir, pp. 189-

Written, as the author states in his preface, so that readers might haTe the history of the 
Philippines in small compass. Previous histories, he sa3rs, have been very long, full of 
extraneous matter, and consequently not read. This is an excellent work and written in 
pleasing and readable style. See Barrows^s commentary on Martinez de Zufiiga in his 
Hist, of the Phil., p. 19. There is an English translation with title as follows:

The appearance of this book railed a storm in official drdei. It treats especially of 
the industry, agriculture, commerce, finance, and administration of the Philippines in 
1810. Retana {Aparato bibl^ ii, pp. 501, 501), praises it highly. The work was reissued 
in Manila, 1878, l^ Felipe Del-Pan (Las Islas Filipinas. Frogrtssos en 70 anos), the first 
218 pages being Comyn, and the remainder Del-Pan*s notes and economic description of 
the islands in 1876. It was translated into English and edited by William Walton, under 
the title Stait of tkt PhUippint Islands, being an historical, statistical, and descriptive ac- 
count of that interesting portion of the Indian archipdago (London, 1821). There is also 
a Dutch translation (see Vindel, CaUSogo, it, p. 289). Comyn liTed in Manila for eight 
years as chief factor of the Compafifa de Filipinas; and #as an authority in financial, com- 
mercial, and economic matters. See also Griffin*s List, p. 15; and Pardo de TaTera^s

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

1842. Escrito por el autor del Aristodemo, del Sistema musical de la 

lengua castellana^ etc. Madrid: Enero de 1843. 3 vols. 80. 

The first two Tolumes are common. Vol. i contains a chart of Filipino written characteriy 
and Tol. ii, a map of the archipelago. These two Tolumes contain in all 27 di£Ferent sec- 
tions, with independent pagination, treating of the ethnology, history, fauna, natural fea- 
tures, industries,' commerce, and Tarious goTemmental 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 adTocates training the Filipinos for sdf-goTem- 
ment and then giving them independence. Although this third toL was listed by Retana 
in his Catdlogo dbmiado, p. 524, it has been rarely dted. It is Teiy rare. Bendes the 
copy of the Compafiia de Tabacos de Filipinas, we know of three copies, one belonging 
to Epifanio de los Santos, Malolos, Bulakan, Luz6n (from a typewritten copy of which we 
publish the translation in our series); one to the late Clemente Zulueta, a Filipino; and 
one to the Peabody Institute Library, at Baltimore. The entire work is of great Talue, 
although in the light of the latest researches its ethnological part suffers. In addition to 
many notes, we hsTe made the following ezcerpts in our series from Mas*s work: ** Ad- 
ministration of gOTemment and the captaincy-general;** ii, no 9. Vol. zvii, pp. 322-

e also Retana, Catdlogo, p. 62, no. 188, who says that considerable use was made of 
Mallat*s work). The authors acknowledge aid horn one fuan Castells y Mddor, who 
had done much in such work. Aid was also obtained (although not acknowledged) 
from the MS. El vtnerMt osorio of Agustin de Santa Maria (q.v,, post); and Retana, Esta-

354; and **Ueber alte und neue Schadel Ton den Philippinen,"" by Rudolph Virchow, pp. 
355-377; and other interesting matter (see Griffin"s List, p. 17). There is an EngUih 
translation with the ritle Travds in tht PhUippints (London, 1874), in which the appoodix 
is omitted. There is also a Spanish transladon by S. Vidal y Sder with the title Fiajts 
por Filipinas (Madrid, 1875). Both translations are defecrive, the English especially 
being untrustworthy. Jagor "s work is of great value to the student, as its author was a 
keen and trained scientific observer. Considerable use has been made of it in this series.

it was edited with some slight changes by Tirso Lopez, O. S. A., of Valladolid. It is an

Vol. i, of the series BMioteca kisl6rica fUpina^ published under the initiative of Jos^ 
Gutierrez de la Vega. Although published only in 1892, this work was undertaken by 
Delgado in Gwguan in 1751, continued in Palipag, and finished, June 6, 1754. The 
author seems to have utilized San Antonio^s Ckronieas to a great extent; but he has 
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 history. 
Li the third book, Delgado inserts most of San Agustin's famous letter; and the editor 
inserts a portion of Loarca's Relation (see vol. v, pp. 34-187), and excerpts from Le 
Gobien*s Histoirt des isles Marianes (Paris, 1700). Cited many times in our series, and 
excerpts published in our series as follows: "Some things worth Imowing about the govern-

tin^s letter, from the reading of the MS. which we follow in our publication of that letter. 
Delgado was bom at C&diz, and went to the Philippines in 1711. He worked in the mis- 
sions of Simar, where he hdd various offices, was many years in CebO, and labored as well 
in Leyte and Bohol. A copy of the original MS. of this work is mentioned by Sommer- 
vogel {Bibliathique, v, col. 1457, and ix, cd. 188) as existing in the Jesuit archives at 
Manila.

Vols, ii and iii of the Biblioteea kistSrica flipina (which was undertaken through the 
influence of JoU Gutierrez de la Vega). Santa In6s*s Cr6niea dates from 1676. Pardo 
de Tavera says that its author wrote it with the intenrion 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 dted by Huerta, Estado, 
p. 462; and Marcellino da Civezza, Saggio di bibl.f pp. 551, 552. At the end of the second 
vol. the editor has added 12 appendices, among them two valuable relations of Juan de 
Plascncii, O. S. F. The CrSnica is divided into three books, and deals with the islands

thenuelTCSy and especially with the history of the Franciscans. The third book is taken 
up with the story 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 proTince in 1676, and in accord- 
ance therewith wrote the aboTe history, comprising the years 1 576-1627. His death oc-

This memorial was nerer presented, as the American forces captured Manila b^ore it

revolution of 1896, and was the joint work of the Augustinians, Franciscans, Dominicani, 
Recollects, and Jesuits, each order being represented by its provincial. Fifty copies were 
pulled o£f 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 Rlos,*^ ea^ 1900. This contains some

Vol. i contains for the most part the descriptiTe matter, and toL ii, the special scientific 
matter. See for the table of contents Griffin's List, p. 12; Pardo de Takers praises this 
work for its mechanical excellence, and says of it: ^It is a compilation of what has been 
written on the Filipinas. The part on meteorology and nugn«tism is excellent, but the 
rest is a simple compilation, in which the Jesuits haTe brought together what other authors 
hare said, without the least personal criticism in the opinions copied, which are at times 
absurd.** The atlas was issued by the Coast and Geodetic Surrey, and before publishing, 
it was necessary to redraw the maps to a uniform scale. Most of the text of vol. i has been 
translated into English and published in rols. iii and iT of the Rspt. of the Phil. Com. for

clearer light than has been done elsewhere. Vol. ui, pp. 112-207.

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 drcumnayigation of the globe. Pigafetta, an Italian of noble family, 
and an ardent admirer of MagalhSes, kept a journal during the Toyage, from which evi- 
dently this relation was compiled. This is called the Ambrosian Manuscript, from its place 
of conservation in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Milan, Italy. It is the oldest of the four 
manuscripts (see post, p. 239), and dates from either shortly before or shortly after 1525. 
Ciscato (Antonio Pigafetta viaggiatoro victntino dd toeolo XFI; in ^Atti delP accademia 
Olimpica di Vicenza,** xviii, a. 1883) believes that it was procured for the founder of the 
Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Cardinal Federico Borromeo, by one of the learned men whom 
he sent out, according to Manzoni, 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 conservator of that library, and first made known to the world in 
his Primo viaggio (Milan, 1800X although in a wofuUy mutilated form, as Amoretti has 
edited the manuscript almost beyond recognition in places, with the result that Pigafetta*s 
words are twisted into new meanings. "Diis manuscript, written in a mixture of Italian, 
the dialect of Vicenza, and some few Spanish words, is probably a copy of the one pre- 
sented to the grand master of Rhodes, as it beats the following inscription on the inside of 
first cover-page: ^Xe livre est du chevallier de Forette;*^ for it is scarcely likely that Villiers 
de lisle-Adam would give away his copy. It is written in a volume bound simply in 
heavy walnut-colored paper. Pages streaked and dog-«ared at edges. Height, 273 mm.; 
width, 204 mm.; thickness, 28 mm. Written on ordinary rag paper on fol. 1-80. Fol- 
lowing this (fol. 81-92), is ^Alcune regole sull^ arte della navigarione,** or **Some rules on 
the art of navigation,*' also by Pigafetta. The remainder of the book (fol. 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 Magdlans voyagt 
around tht world (Cleveland, 1906), 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,

anttf although the paper on which it is written is of a different texture. The Artieda MS. 
contains a number of sidenotes opposite the various paragraphs. It is listed on p. 14 of 
the CattUogo (Madrid, 1900) of the library. In the Aichivo General de las Indias is a Nf S., 
purporting to be, morely through the endorsement by some archiyist, by Juan de la Isla; 
but which is the MS. of Artieda (with some minor changes, 9.0., ut sufra, pp. 19^208, 
316). The pressmark of this MS. is est. i, caj. i, leg. 1I23. It bears as title: ^^Reladon

in fact appear on the document. This MS. is mistakenly ascribed to Juan de la Isla by

This document wai formerly housed in the archives at Simancas, where it bore, accord- 
ing to Juan Bautista Mufioz, pressmark **Indias, leg. 3 de los int. Descripdones i PoUa- 
dones."* Copied by the latter, his final revision being completed August 10, 1781; and 
now among the Mufioz papers at R. A. de la H., Madrid, where it bears the following 
title in the catalogue: **Tratado de las Islas Filipinas con todas las poblad6nes reduddas 
i la obedienda del Rey en 1580, los pueblos espafides, manera de gobiemo de estos y de 
Indios por Miguel de Loarca; copiose en Simancas en dnoo cuademos.** Of it Mufios 
says: **It is a very fine rdation, for one can with difficulty find another of that time so 
complete. [It merits] peculiar credit in whatever touches upon religion, opinions, cere- 
monies, nunners, 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 govemonhip of Don Gonxalo Ronquillo, at appears 
from the introduction and from the third chapter sub. medJ*" A transcript from Muiloa's 
copy, or a duplicate of it, exists in the Lenox branch of the New York Public Library, but 
like the Mufioz MS. it differs in some essentials from the real original, namdy in spelling, 
capitalization, and punctuadon. Beginning with chapter vi, Mufioz's transcript was 
published in Delgado^s Historia (Manila, 1892) as an appendix to part i, book iii, pp. 
371-392, by the eiditor of that book. Temaux-Compans, Archivts des voyagts (Paris, 
1840), i, pp. 1-50, gives a loose and inadequate translation of the manuscript. The ^*De 
las Costumbres de los Indios Bisayas, i otros de Filipinas '\ cited by Barda, ii, col. 638, 
appears to be Loarca^s Relation. Blumentritt, VocA, gitn. Ausd,, p. 49, dtes this ra-

A collection of papers relating to the matter of the tribute, consisting of some twenty-four

was so often to break out in the Philippines. The earliest document bears date, Manila, 
Jan. 25, and the latest Quiapo, March 21. The various documents are not all arranged 
chronologically, having been copied in wrong order probably by a government clerk, but 
we have arranged them correctly, in our publication, where they are presented in transla* 
tion and s3mopsi8. The original MS. is mutilated in places, and bears several endorse- 
ments. A transcript of it was made for Eduardo Navarro, O. S. A.

There are three MSS. known to be in existence, all of which differ somewhat from one 
another. We have used mainly what appears to be the real original, existing in the Archives 
of the Indies. Of the other two, one is in the R. A. de la H., and the o&er 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, respectively. A. [Memorial to 
the Council.] A. del.; est. 68, caj. 7, leg. 35. B. Memorial general de todos los estados de 
las yslas filipinas sobre las cosas de ellas para su mag<l. Manila, [July a6], 1586. R. A. 
de la H.; papeles de los Jesuitas; tomo 8, fol. 330-339. C. Juntas de los Estados de la 
dudad de Manila para enviar un comisionado i Madrid para informar al Rey acerca de 
las necesidades de las Islas, afio de 1586. Vol. i, no. i. We have used all three MSS. in 
our publication. See vol. vi, p. 158, note 37; p. 165, note 40, and pp. 230-233. This is 
a most important MS. for the study of the early history of the Philippines. Probably the 
document dted by Femindez Duro, Armada 9spariola, iii, p. 60^ note, who dtes the copy 
in Madrid; Deposito hidrogrifico; tomo 18. This document is also published by Pas- 
tells in his edition of Colin's Labor tvangUica,

These decrees all treat of mission affairs and ecclesiastical supervision of the regulars 
bj the bishops, which was a bone of contention in all the Spanish Indies. The first four 
concern Nuera Espafia, and are dated June 5, 1607, Dec. 13, 1620, Apr. 30^ 162a, and 
June 22, 1624, the first two being sent to the viceroy, the third to the bishop of the province 
of Guajaca, and the fourth to the viceroy, archbishop, and bishops. These were probably 
used in the consideration of the question in the Philippines. The last three decrees have 
to do with the Philippines directly. The first two, dated Sept. 2, and Oct. 2, 1638, were 
published from MSS. from A. H. N. {q. 0., vol. xxix, pp. 104-107; see also post, p. 207).

The letter itself is followed by certain facetious questioos and answen concerning the 
Filipino, which are ascribed to Pfcdro Murillo Velarde, S. J. W. E. Retana says (£jfa- 
dismOf ii, p. 281*) that Murillo Velarde was a genial author, but Tery keen and obsenrant 
withal. **He was very 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 which I tran- 
scribe** (here follow the questions and answers). Retana notes that Murillo Velarde and 
Delgado did not hare the same opinion in the matter. This is a famous letter, and many 
copies of it eiist. See ut supra, pp. 183, 184, and the footnotes for the entire letter. The 
MS. described abore is written on good rag paper of about octavo size, and occupies fol.

Thif MS. consiitt of two parts: the first is the rdatioQ proper by Valdes Tunoa; the 
second part is the ecclesiastical surrey and was written by Pablo Frandsco Rodrigues dc 
Berdozido, royal accountant at Manila, in 174a. In ^^Motiro de Efu obra,** which pre- 
cedes the work, a letter from Don Joseph Patiik), royal secretary, dated Sept. ao^ 1715, 
states that the king desired news of the islands, and of their fortifications, as the recent St 
at the palace in Madrid had des tr oy e d 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 foUo size and bound in boards. 
For better protection, the entire book, with its binding, has been enclosed in two thick 
wooden covers. The paper is thick and heavy, and soinewhat worm-eaten. Some of the 
maps are in colors. Another copy of this MS. exists in the Sevilla archives. A short ex- 
tract from a copy of this MS., probabhr existing in Manila, is published in vol. iii, of the 
annual Report of the War Department (Washington, 1903), pp. 437, 438, note a.

« This MS., which was purchased from the Madrid bookseller, P. Vindd, by Mr. Ajrer in 

1904 is bound in a modem binding embossed on the back, "Ingleses en Filipinas**. It 
M has a modem title-page (^.v., above), and, in addition, a modem index at the end, which 

contains, howerer, numerous errors. The MS. itsdf connsts of 57 folios, numbered in ink 
by the person who transcribed the Tarious 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 condition, 
and is wom through in but few places, due to the old-fashioned method of blotting, which has 
disintegrated the paper in sererd instances. The titles of the Tarious documents as given 
aboTe have been taken partly from the index, partly from the documents themsdres, and 
in part made up.

Although the luthonhip of this document it not indicated on the document itself, an 
entry in the catalogue of the museum ascribes it to Dalrymple; if the date **Not. 23, 176a,** 
is the date when it was written, it was thus written after the conquest of Manila by Draper 
and Cornish; and must have been written in England, or where the writer had not learned 
of the success of the British arms. In the absence of this direct catalogue entry, we had 
suggested Draper as its author (see ut supra, p. 43, note). There was a Spanish translatiai 
of this document in Ministerio de Ultramar, Madrid (cited by Moya y Jimenex, p. 240).

This MS. was purchased br Mr. Ayer from the Madrid bookseller, P. Vindel, in 1903, 
for the sum of 225 pesetas (although Vindel asked 300 pesetas for it; see no. 2693 in his 
Cat^ogo, m, Madrid, 1903, p. 208). Of it Vindel says: ^A document of high historical 
interest. In it are rdated with the greatest veracity all the events of the capture of Manila 
by the British forces. In part, the conduct of its author, the most illustrious Sefior Don 
Manuel Antonio Rozo del Rk> y Veyra, is vindicated.** The BIS. is bound in modem 
leather covers, embossed on the back ^^Razo [sic] Operadones en Manila. MS. 1763**. 
The MS. itself is badly stained and is worn in many places; and has been mended at some 
time. It consists of 52 folios, which are numbered in pencil. It is either the real original 
of the relation or a copy made shortly after it was written. Cited by Femindea Duro,

This contains 1 tynoptis of the instructiont for the expedition, the crewi of the TeMeU, 
etc.; and some matter on Loaisa^s expedition. Some of this matter is found in Fcniandes

"PartiodeSebylhaa ..." 

Formerly in the Biblioch^ue du Roi, where its pressmark was 7168'*'; fol. 57-64.. 
Paris says of this MS.: **This relation by a Genoese pilot who accompanied the famous 
Magellan has no need of being recommended to the interest of geographers. Unfoitu- 
natdy it is too short, and the writing is very poor.** This MS. is written in excellent Por- 
tuguese, and general consensiu of opinion is inclined to impute its authorship to a Portu- 
guese, inasmuch as Magalhles had no Genoese pilot with him. This account is repro- 
duced in English by Stanley (First voyagt round tht worid by Magellan, pp. 1-29). It is 
dted often in Mosto*s Pigafetta, and in Robertson*s Magdlan^s ^>oyage around the toorld, 
and the notes to vou. xxxiii and xxxiv of this series. This is perhaps the document 
dted by Barda (1737, 1738), ii, col. 669, namely, **Viage de Fernando Magalianes,** a 
Portuguese MS. then conserved in the library of Ldda.

Ends "tres digne grand maistre de Rhodes. Fin." See Robertson, 
Magellan's voyage around the world (Cleveland, 1906), ii, pp. 260-264. 
First mentioned in 1841 by Thomassj, who found it in the libraiy of Moos. Beauprt 
judge of the court of first instance at Nancj, France (on account of which it is known as 
the Nancj MS.); and who described it and gave Tarious passages from it {BuUttin di la 
Soc, giog., Paris, Sept. 1843). The catalogue of the Libri sale (July, 1861, p. 92, no. 456) 
says: ^This MS. belonged to the secretary of the Cardinal of Lorraine, and . . was in 
the convent of St. Lipoid at Nancy. There is every 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 Vespucci (at the beginning of the same century) addressed his letters on 
America to another Duke of Lorraine** (see also Harrisse, BM. Amer, vetus,, Add^ Paris, 
1872, p. zxzii). Fh>m the library of Mons. Beaupr^ the manuscript passed into the po ss c i 
don of the Paris bookseller Potier, by whom it was sold in 1855 into the Solar coUectioo 
(according to Mosto, p. 41 ; Harrisse says, ut supra, p. zxxiii, that is was sold at Potier*s 
sale in March, 1851, where it was no. 506). At the demise of Mons. Felix Solar in 1861, it 
came into the possession of a London bookseller, who paid 1,650 francs for it (Stanley's 
First voyagt round tht world, p. li). The Venetian canon Pietro Marasca tried to ac- 
quire the manuscript for the library of his city, first at Nancy, and then at Paris, but in 
▼ain, and after it was taken to London lost all trace of it (see Morsolin*8 Eiogio di Antonio 
Pigafetta -axtd by Mosto). It appears next at London in the Libri sale (July, i86a)^ 
where it was bid in by Sir Thomas Phillipps of Cheltenham, England, for £135. It has 
been partially described by Thomassy (BuUttin do la SociHi do Giographio, vol. xx, 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 Fenwick, grandson of Sir Thomas Phillipps (who 
died in 1872). Small folio, finely bound in red morocco, tooled and gilt (Dirin binding). 
Written on fine wh'te vellum in a beautiful French hand of the sixteenth century, and the 
volume as a whole is in an excellent state of preservation. There are 99 leaves with writing, 
II X 7 I /2 in. In addition, at the beginning are one paper flyleaf and two blank vellum 
leaves, and at the end two blank vellum leaves and one paper flyleaf. The text occupies 
folios 3 recto-98 verso, and is divided into 57 numbered chapters, the titles of which are 
written in red or blue. The initial letters are handsomely illuminated in gold and colon, 
and there are twenty-three richly-executed charts (most of them full page). There are 
three vocabularies. It is nearer die Italian MS. in the 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 both the latter, but in the same general epoch as MS. 24224, which it

resembles in chirography; and regards is as a revision of Pigafetta's first MS. which he 
mistakenly supposes to be 5650. It is by far the best of the French MSS. (dating probably 
from the second quarter of the i6th century), and is apparently the oldest of diem; and 
may, indeed, have been translated directly from the Italian MS., though no positive state- 
ment can be made until a thorough collation of the Ambrosian MS. and the Nancy is made.

Its old pressmark in the royal library was 10270 B; it being sent to that library in 1694 
by Abbe Bizot. It is an adaptation and translation of the Italian MS. (9.V., dnif, p. 144).

consisting of 1 14 folios, in Gotliic letters, in two hands, the second comprising fol. 72 recto- 
92 recto (but it must have been written by the same person as the rest of the MS., only ap> 
pearing more hurried and less careful). Each full page has twenty-nine red-ruled lines, 
and twenty-eight lines of writing. Paragraphs are separated by a black line, and start 
with a hanging indention. Initial letters are in both red and blue ink, as are also para- 
graph marks *'^** which occur scattered throughout the text. Titles to charts (of which 
there are 23) and other headings are in red iiik. Uimumbered chapter headings distin- 
guished by no other title than ^Xhapitre,^ occur at interrak. The relation of the Toyage 
comprises fol. 1-96 recto. Following (fol. 96 Terso-114) is the treatise on the gtobe (foL 
96 Terso containing the figure of the sphere). This is the older of the two MSS. cxm s erfed 
at Paris; and dates probably from near the middle of the 1 6th century. It has never been 
published in full, aldiough Stanley translates it in part in his First voyage round the world 
(London, 1874)- see Robertson, ut supra, ii, p. 301. See full treatment of bibliography 
of Pigafetta MSS. and printed books, in Robertson, ut supra, ii, pp. 241-313. This may 
be the Pigafetta MS. cited by Gonzalez Barcia.

103 foUos (although it shows 104 due to misnumbering). Each page has twenty-nine lines 
of writing, which is most painstaking, and more eanly legible than that of 5650.' The 
initial letters are beautifully illuminated, and the charts (twenty-three in number) are 
beautifully eiecuted (the inscriptions thereof being in red ink). Certain headings occur 
throughout the MS. An incomplete copy of 5650, certain somewhat broad passages 
having been smoothed down. The relation of the voyage occupies fol. 1-86 verso. Tlie 
treatise on the globe comprises fol. 87-104 (figure of globe lacking). See Robertson, ui

Anazebu, December 15, 1600^ related briefly the erents of the battle, and ordered the taking 
of testimonies in r^ard to it. Accordingly depositioos were taken horn the following on

of both of which he ouket utt in his work. The MS. it written bj several native amaa- 
oenses as is shown bj the Tarious hands. It is on rice paper, and has been holed and 
eaten bj the destructive white ant. The MS. is bound in carabao hide. It cnnraini €:9t 
books as follows: the first, with 3a chapters; the second, with 27; the third, with 33; tbe 
fourth, with 36; the fifth, with 55. A paragraph, written bj Juan de Bueras, S. J., and 
provincial of FUipinas, 1627-1636, translates as follows: *'For dbe good memoiy of Father 
Pfedro Chirino, who labored so effectivelj in this province, I order that this book whidi be 
left, be conserved in the library of this college of Manila, where those who desire of its good 
studies nuj aid themselves. Manila, January 25, 1636.** This paragraph, together vrith 
the above title-page, indicates that this copy was oaade at the instance of Juan de Bueraa. 
Considerable use of this MS. was made by its present owner, in his edition of Colin*s rrftr 
exkmgtiica (Barcelona, 1904). There are partial transcripts in R. A. de la H. (MuAos 
CoU^ition); and in the Lenox branch of the New York Public Library. The seoood, 
which vre describe, appears to be a duplicate or a transcript of the partial transcript made 
by Mufk» from Chinno*s MS. about 1800, which transcript rests in the R. A. de la H. in 
Biadrid. Of it, Mufk>z says: ^To this point, the index of this vrork, which must cooaiat 
of two volumes, one of which is owned bj Don Manuel de Ayora, which includes the firat 
three books. It is written on quarto paper from China. Tbe copy is corrected by the 
author himself, and signed at the end. Under this is a note in his handwriting ^Revised 
and corrected by the author himself in Manila, April, 161 8. Pedro Chirino.* There are 
about 700 leaves in an excellen t and clear cursive letter. It proceeded from one of the 
Jesuit houses in Sevilla, where Ayora bought it, as he himself told me, when under the title 
of duplicates, rery many good books and various MSS. were bought and stolen. Collat- 
ing with this MS. and iu index, the Rdaciom dt las Tslas FUipiiuu, ydth qmt em dUu k^ 
traoajado los Padrgs de la Comp'. dt Jesus, an imprint of Rome, 1604, in 4**, I have found 
that the Rdacien is, as it were, a compendium of the Historiof or more properly, the latter 
which was written later is an extension of the former, and in many places, a UteraJ copy. 
But the first part of the Historia (since vre do not know whether he wrote the second part) 
must take up to the year 161 1 or 1612, while the Relacion only ukes up to July, 1602, when 
its author IdFt Manila for Roma, where he signed it March 5, 1604. I shall state the result 
of the collation, advising that the parallel chapters will be noted, those of the Histmim 
preceded by a Roman number denoting the book. I. 3 "^i* In the Histeria, much 
longer, where are told succinctly the navigation of Magallanes, E. Gomez, Comendador 
Loaysa, the vessels of Cortes in 1527, and three other fleets through the strait; while the 
last mentions only the last of the archbishop of Palenda in 1540, that of Villaloboa in 
1543 from Nueva Espafia, and that of Legaspi. m. 8, 9, io»i5, 16, 17. Literally the 
same, except a few additions and slight corrections in the chapters in the Hfxroriia. m. 14, 
15*20,11. 14*20 exactly. 1 5* 21, in part identical, but in the ffiif otm, the matter ia 
treated more at length and dirided into sections, m. i6»22. In part identical, but 
with additions in tbe Historia. m. 2i«46. All of the matter of the JU!ar«oii is put 
into the Historia, and much is added in the latter, m. ao»30. Although agreeing in 
title, they are rery di£Perent in substance, and the history is much better, m. 22*31. 
Very di£Perent, and with comparison much longer in the Historia. m. 25*33. Mwh 
in the Historia taken from the Relacion, but changed and greatly bettered, in. 28*34. 
Same as the preceding. This is also general. The prdlogo is addressed *To the 
Rev. Fathers of the Society of Jesus of the Filipinas.* Bq^ins ^Quien lo hi provado sabe 
bien . . . lo q«. bi del q*. se nacio en la fee/ He says that obedience obliged him 
to write this history.*^ Mufioz gives a copy of the list of chapters for the first five books; 
(book i, conuining 32 chapters; ii, 26 chapters; iii, 33 chapters; iv, 40 chapters; v, 53 
chapters); book ti, chapter ii (Descripdon de la Ysla de Manila, y otras, Comarcaa) 
and iii 0^ nadones q^. havitan la i^. de Manila, y sus Costumbres); book iii, chapter 
xxiv (De la isla de Bohol), chapter xxv (El modo que los Filipinos tenian en amortajar y 
sepultar sus difuntos), chapter xxri (Del Tavon), and chapter xxvii (De las herendas y 
subcesiones de los Filipinos); book i, chapter xiv (Apimtamientos breves de Algunas cosaa 
de la China, hechos por el P. Alonso Sanchez en la Corte de Espafia); book iii, chapter 
XV (De la falsa Religion Gentilica: idolatrias, y superttidones de los Filipinos^ chapter 
xri (De las idolatrias que se descubrieron en S°. Juan dd Monte y su remedio). In all 
32 folio leaves of small writing. Bound into a volume which was bought from O. Rich, 
and called Spanish-American Collection. Valuable as throwing light on Chirino*s method 
of writing, and forever settling the authentidty of the date 1604 as the publication date 
of his Relacion.

additional two pcr-cent duty be repealed as being too onerous. July 27. IL Rojral 
decree concerning collection of duties in Manila. Madrid, August ais» 1633. This it 
followed bj an act bj the governor, Cerezo de Salamanca, dated Ju^ »i, 1634, ordering the 
observance of the decree. On July 23, accordingly, it was proclaimed, ni. Statement 
by the royal officials regarding the gift of 4,000 pesos presented to the treasury by the city 
for the year 1632. IV. Statement by the fiscal Juan Fernandez de Ledo; and petition 
that above dearee be obeyed. V. Order by the governor to register the goods in the 
ships about to sail in accordance with the decree. July 27. VI. A petition by the royal 
officials of the above date, asks that five per cent be ooll^cted on all the goods. That same 
day the governor orders the evaluation of the cargo to be made on the five per-cent batisy 
so that the 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 cabtldo to 
consider the matter on the following day, July 18. Vm. The sense of the mrcring held 
00 the twenty-eighth was that it would be loss and ruin to the merchants 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. At a meeting of the Audiaida July 18, all votes were 
in favor of remitting the two per-cent duty for that year in order that the venels might not 
sail without cargo, as that would be more detrimental to the king than the non-coUectioo 
of the two per cent. Accordingly on July 29, the governor decided to admit the petition 
not to collect the two per-cent du^ that year.

THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 



March 27, 1704. Rome; A. del V.; Carpegni; see tomo 78, pag. 425. 

There are also several documents in A. del V. regarding Camacho j AviU. 

Mercado, Ignacio, O. S. A.: — Libro de mcdicina casera. Compueaco 

por un P. Agustino. [Ca., 1698.] Ayer Collection. 

149 leavei; bound in pigskin. 8^. On the first folio is '^Dedtradoo de lu Tirtiidai 
de los Arboles, y plantas que estan en este Libro.** On die flyleaf iM w iiueu by Retaii% 
its former owner: ** Father FVay Bernardino Nosaleda [the laat Spanish arcUnahop 
of Manila] presented it to the militaxy physician D. Jot6 de LacaDe in 1S84; and Scfi« 
Lacalle gave it to me Sept. 6, 1893, in payment of a debt.** A note by the librarian of die 
collection of the C. G. de T. de F. says that this is an eighteenth centoij copy of die 
celebrated book of medicinal plants written by Father Mercado, a FiBptno meatiio; 
it is published in toI. It of the Flora mwumtnui AgustmiamSf but there is want 
difference between the MS. and the published form; the native names of the plaiita an 
given. Quoted by the C. G. de T. de F. who acquired it from Rctana, at 250 fniica. 
The history of the MS. is told by Celestino Femindei (see P^rei, Catttf^ga, pp. 905^ 
ao6, note). Briefly it is as follows: ** After the death of its author, the origiiial BIS. 
lay in the infirmary and apothecary shop of the Augustinian cooTeot at Manna. J^ 
1750, it was loaned to the Dominicans in order that they mi^ make a copy of it. 
The original copy was examined by Agustin de SanU Maria at the Angiiarinieii 
convent in Manila in 1760. During the English invasion it escaped the almost general 
fate of the Augusrinian MSS. The Jesuits must have borrowed it to make a oopj 
from it, and in 1769, at the expulsion of that order, it must have been confiscated. In 1876^ 
Domingo Vidal y Soler found a copy in the possession of Jos6 Maitlnex Cafiaa, pcoprieinr 
of Payabas, v^ch had formerly belonged to the Society of Jesus. At Vidal y Solerli 
solicitation the owner presented the MS. to him, and after publishing in the JUvium da 
FUipinas an article by the name of Un inurtswtu manuicrif^ the MS. was re rt o r ed to te 
Augustinians. A second copy of the MS. was owned by Jos6 Martin, O. S. A., the pariah 
priest of Tanauan, in the province of Batangas, and it is complete. This is probaUy the 
MS. cited by Blanco in his Flora. Still another MS. was owned by Cefettino Femindei^ 
which he declared to be the most complete. It was found in the village of Barotac Nuevo^ 
in the province of Iloilo, in 1863. A copy of this last MS. was made in 1865 for Tino 
Lopez, O. S. A.** The Ayer copy may be one of these last two MSS., or a copy from one 
of them. Mercado, who labored in many villages, died in Bauan, in 1698. The BiS. 
is cited by Ramon Jordana y Morcra, Bosquejo, p. 356. 

Dedaracion de las virtudes de los arboles y plantas de Filipinas. 

[Cd., 1698.] Conserved in the Augustinian convent at Manila. 

Cited by Ramon Jordana y Morera, Bosqttejo, p. 356. This MS. was found by Domingo 
Vidal in 1877, who considered it excellent. It was published as a continuation of Blaiieo*8 
Florat by the Augustinians.
