Volume two of Hernandez's complete "Rerum Medicarum Novae Hispaniae Thesaurus; Historiae Animalium et Mineralium Novae Hispaniae Liber Unicus". Rome (1649-1651), comprising the botanical section edited by Recchi and the "Historiae Animalium Liber Unicus". From the original sheets printed in 1628 at the same time as those for "Animalia Mexicana", but only published in 1651. The royal physician, Francisco Hernandez, was sent to Mexico in 1570 by Philip II of Spain, to make an inventory of the flora and fauna with a view to medicinal use. Seven years later Hernandez returned with twenty volumes of notes and plans for a comprehensive thesaurus, which then languished at the Royal monastery in the Escorial, until after his death when his successor Nardo Antonio de Recchi was asked to edit them. He too died before a thorough edition could be published, but his abridgement of some of the medical notes was translated by Francisco Ximenez and published in Mexico as "Quatro libros" in 1615. de Recchi's nephew then took the notes to Rome. There Prince Federico Cesi oversaw the re-editing and printing of the work, assisted on various sections by Giovanni Terrentio, Johannes Faber and Fabio Colonna.
