Item Description: La Différence collection outre-mers. Couverture souple. Book Condition: Très bon. Dust Jacket Condition: Très bon. Edition originale. Paris 1993 . 1 volume/1. Broché cousu sous jaquette illustrée. Format in-8°( 23 x 17 cm )( 604 gr ). ----- 398 pages + 8 planches illustrées . 1 carte in-texte. *********************** "" Avec ces lettres édifiantes et curieuses des Jésuites, rédigées tout au long du XVIIIème siècle jusqu'en 1762 - date de l'arrêt d'expulsion des Jésuites -, nous disposons d'une mine de connaissances irremplaçable sur l'Amérique du Nord (possessions françaises au Canada, Louisiane, Saint-Domingue). De l'hagiographie au récit d'exploration, en passant par l'aventure militaire ou maritime et le reportage ethnographique, tous les genres, ou presque, sont représentés. Même si ce sont souvent des relations officielles, elles sont d'un naturel très vivant qui tient sans doute à la personnalité des Jésuites : intrépides, aventuriers , et d'une formation intellectuelle exceptionnelle : ils se font Indiens parmi les Indiens, apprennent leurs langues, pratiquent la vie collective dans la longue hutte enfumée, la marche sur des raquettes dans le Grand Nord. Leurs détracteurs diront qu'ils ont été des agents de l'impérialisme et du capitalisme. Il est vrai que leur statut les transformait souvent en agents de renseignement - sondant les intentions des Indiens et les disposant favorablement à l'égard des Français, relevant le nombre des guerriers, évaluant les possibilités agricoles ou minières -, plutôt qu'en missionnaires. Mais ils ont été les premiers à se plaindre de leur statut équivoque, et ont dénoncé lucidement les conséquences désastreuses de la pénétration européenne. Leurs lettres ont exercé au XVIIIème siècle une influence considérable sur les intellectuels et la pensée des Lumières - Voltaire, Montesquieu, Rousseau les lurent attentivement. Toute la controverse sur la colonisation européenne repose sur leur documentation de première main. **************************** ref 184. Bookseller Inventory # 333zvey8k88

Item Description: chez Nicholas le Clerc, Paris, 1715. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good overall. First edition. Sabin provides a good account of the publishing history of these highly important compilations of reports sent back by Jesuit missionaries around the world. They include vivid accounts of the inhabitants of America, Asia and the South Seas particularly; and they are replete with lore on folkways, natural history and the incidental discoveries of the far-flung and often imperilled missionaries. Writing of a later edition, Thomas W. Field enthuses,"Every one of these volumes is crowded with interesting details for the history of the aborigines of the countries in which these wonderful men had their missions.". This is the eleventh volume of the 34 volumes that appeared between 1702 and 1776. The title at the spine is of the fifth of the six reports in the volume, and reads "Lettre du P. Marest, "Kaskaskia 1712". Kaskaskia was the name given to a local river by the indigenous people, about a dozen tribes which made up the Illinois Confederation, who lived in the Great Lakes region. In 1703 Kaskaskia became a permanent Jesuit mission and one of the major French settlements in the New World, with Indians, settlers, fur traders, and eventually slaves. There is a loosely inserted bookplate of previous owner Judge Walter B. Douglas of St. Louis who had an interest in the fur trade of Creole French pioneers of the eighteenth century in the Kaskaskia area. This volume includes a journal entry on the Philippines, titled "Relation en Forme de Journal, de la Decouverte des Isles de Palaos, ou nouvelles Philippines" (pp75 -91). The report describes the 1710 voyage of the 'Sainte Trinite' to the islands of the Philippine archipelago (under the Jesuit college of the Philippines), in which Fathers Duberron and Courtil (sic) were lost. These two Jesuit fathers were so eager to plant a crucifix at a small island, that they went ashore against captain's orders, and the vessel was carried away by the wind, leaving them behind. With a folding map of the Philippines, extending from the Philippines to the Celebes and the Marianas Islands, showing the track of the 14 November 1710 voyage of discovery.12mo, [24], 428pp, [8], folding map. Contemporary full calf, spine decorated in gilt. Covers well rubbed, a very fresh copy inside. With the armorial bookplate of Philippe Vonderweil inside the front cover; a bit chipped at lower portion. Bookseller Inventory # 20354
