in Vol. II. are ' ' The Manner of Curing the Sick, or Sorcerers of

CHARLES TEMPLETON CROCKER

Rey Notro Seuor por la provincia de Nueva-
Espana, de la Compania de Jesus. Con licencia.

En Madrid: En la imprenta de la viuda de
Manuel Fernandez, y del supremo oonsejo de la
Inquisicion. Ano de M.D.GCLVII.

4to, three volumes, full calf.

With four folding maps.

George Bancroft's copy, with his bookplate.

The first map of California is surrounded by a border of ten
vignettes, showing inhabitants and animals of the country, and
the martyrdoms of Padres Carranco and Tamaral. The second is
a map of the lands adjacent to the upper part of the Gulf of Cali-
fornia, 1747, after the Jesuit missionary, Cinsag. The third is
of the South Sea or Pacific Ocean between the Equator and
39 30" north latitude. This has been copied from Anson, by
Joseph Gonzales. The fourth is a general map of the north
Pacific Ocean, showing Asia and America, and engraved by Manuel
Kodriguez, 1756.

This work is considered the foundation of a library of Cali-
forniana. The maps have historical value and represent surveys
made down to 1754, although the manuscript was written in 1739.
The text was supplemented by fresh information, sent home from
the missions for that purpose, so that the matter is brought fully
down to date of publication. The work was edited by Padre
Andres Marcos Burriel, although his name does not appear. He
was an editor of intelligence and ability, and one of the three
volumes is devoted to geography and explorations of the far
north.

Other than Cabrera, Burriel was the first writer whose sound
sense allowed him to reject the apocryphal voyages as unworthy
of credit, to restrict northern geography to actual discoveries,
and to correctly define in print the peninsula and the regions of
the Colorado and Gila Rivers as far as known. This work of
Venegas has been translated into English, Dutch, French and
German. The English translation has been a popular edition, but,
it is stated, is faulty and a considerable portion has been
omitted.

16mo, full dark green crushed levant morocco,
gilt, in contemporary style.

The exceedingly rare First Edition of the King's Book, having
the faulty pagination in signature G (91, 82, 83, 94, 95, 86, 87,
98, 99, 90, 91, 102, 103, 94, 95, 109), and title (without printer's
name), of which only seven copies were known to Edward Almack
in his bibliography. This copy contains the excessively rare leaf
of errata. It lacks the leaf preceding the title-page with verses
signed "F. N. G.," and lacks at the end the " Perfect Copie of
Private Prayers used by His Majestie in the Time of his Suffer-
ings," which are very often missing. In one of the Hoe copies
the * ' Apophthegmata " has a separate title-page with the imprint
"Printed by William Du-gard for Francis Eglesfield."

The First Edition appeared almost before the King's body
was cold. Its authority was disputed at the time, some believing
it to be the work of Bishop Gauden. The book displays Charles
First's piety and sets forth an explanation of his policy.
