Condition: See description


12 p.l., 586, [1] pp. Folio, cont. calf (joints a little rubbed, title dusty, some unimportant dampstaining towards end), spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Antwerp: J. Meursius, 1643. A greatly expanded edition of the first bibliography of the Jesuit order; the first edition appeared in 1608. Many entries relate to the Jesuit missions in the Orient and the Americas. This edition is very rare with no copy located by OCLC in the U.S. Ribadeneira (1527-1611), a member of a noble Castilian family, after finishing his studies at the Universities of Paris, Louvain, and Padua, became a leading diplomat and administrator within the Jesuit order. A brilliant writer, he wrote a distinguished biography of St. Ignatius Loyola. The Belgian Jesuit historiographer Philippe Alegambe (1592-1652), extended the bibliography to include works published up to 1643 and added several useful indices. Very good fresh copy. 17th-century signature of Robert Wallis on free front endpaper. ❧ Besterman, The Beginnings of Systematic Bibliography, p. 55. Sabin 70776.
