About This Item

Augsburg: Christoph Mang, 1615. First Latin edition. Small 8vo, pp.[viii], 294, folding plan of the villa in Peking converted into a church with Ricci's tomb. A very good copy bound in modern red morocco. The Jesuit missionary Nicolas Trigault's Latin edition of two important annual letters from the Chinese missions for the years 1610 and 1611, which were first published in Italian at Rome the same year. The first letter provides a description of the Chinese political situation, the state of the missions, and reports from Beijing and Nanjing; the second has a general report on the mission and a special report from Nanjing. Trigault dedicated his Latin translation to Maximilian I (1573-1651), the Jesuit-educated Duke of Bavaria. This edition includes a folding plan of the villa in Peking which was converted into a church with Ricci's tomb, with detailed caption. Cordier BS 808; Löwendahl 56; Morrison II, p.466; De Backer & Sommervogel, 8, 238.
