About this Item

Translation of "Parte primera: El reyno jesuitico del Paraguay," originally published in vol. IV of the Coleccion general de documentos (Madrid: Imprenta real de la Gaceta, 1768?70). It is a vitriolic anti-Jesuit diatribe by a man who had been expelled from the Society of Jesus, not once, but twice! A definite "other side of the coin" from Father Lozano's account of the Jesuits in Paraguay, and originally written in Spanish, Ibanez's work proved popular and by 1774 had appeared in German, French, and this Italian translation. Of course, at that time the Jesuits were hot news, having been expelled in 1767 from the Spanish empire and made to find refuge in Italy and elsewhere. Some copies have a frontispiece but not this one. Of the nine copies we trace to U.S. libraries, we know that at least two lack the frontispiece, but others may also. We have checked the OPAC records for the other seven but because all seven are clearly copy cataloguing we have to wonder about their accuracy. Binding: 20th-century half dark green crushed morocco with marbled paper sides in a swirl pattern and top edge gilt, signed "Alfred Farez" who was active 1909 to ca. 1930. Unidentified owner's gilt monogram at base of spine. Binding signed "Alfred Farez" who was active 1909 to ca. 1930. 4to (20.5 cm; 8"). xix, [1], 167, [1] pp. Sabin 58530; Streit, Bibliotheca missionum, III, 932; Palau 56514; Maggs, Bibliotheca Americana, I, 887. Bound as above with old "wall paper" wrappers bound in. Title-page with a very little light soiling and one other leaf with a single spot likewise light; text notably clean and with good margins. A very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 34707
