Quarto (10 1/4" x 8") bound in original contemporary speckled calf boards with re-backed spine and six raised spine bands with red label in gilt lettering. (Cox II, p. 282; Hill 1327) First English edition.The fall of Quebec and the collapse of French Canada had led to Louis de Bougainville's return to France. By the end of 1761 his thoughts about Pacific exploration and the need for French bases on sea routes had crystallized sufficiently to enable him to approach the Minister of Marine with a firm proposal. The French government was in no position to promote or finance a voyage into the Pacific, so the first step would be the colonization of the uninhabited Falkland Islands, by Acadian settlers who would be quite willing to go there as the climate was about the same as that of Acadia their former homeland. Two ships were obtained, and Bougainville's relatives provided the funds and in 1763 the… Read More

Description:
197 leaves. Folio (12 ¾" x 8 ¾") bound in half cloth over beige cloth. This book holds all the closed loans in Puebla in the year 1606-1660. All these loans were handled by Convents or Capellanías. It's an interesting and early item that sheds light on how the churched worked in the colonial era, and it also provides a lot of information about properties and life in the XVII century in Colonial Mexico.
This volume records censos finalized in the year 1660, including some which originated as early as 1606. Most documents begin on a piece of sealed paper, extend to approximately 2 to 14 leaves, and conclude with docketing on the verso of the final leaf noting "senso" or "chancelacion."
By the last third of the eighteenth century, the various elements that had permitted the church to flourish economically—crown support, creole largesse, Indian and Black labor—began to come apart. At first, because of the peculiar way in which the church was involved in colonial economy and society, the clergy… Read More
