FERNÁNDEZ, Juan Patricio [1661-1733].
Historica Relatio, De Apostolicis Missionibus Patrum Societatis Jesu Apud Chiquitos, Paraquariae Populos.

small 4to. pp. 20 p.l., 276, [16]index, [2]errata. title in red & black. woodcut ornaments & initials. 19th century quarter roan (several rubberstamps on title, some foxing, minor worming to pp. 203-226 affecting some words). First Edition of the Latin Translation (first: Madrid, 1726). An important account of Jesuit missionary activity in the Parana and Plate River area of South America, and one of the most authentic works dealing with the life of the Chiquito Indians. Fernández laboured for many years as a missionary in the region. Included here are details on the founding and progress of the mission, the geography of the province of Chiquitos, the manners and customs of the natives, the invasion and depredations by the Mamelucos, the removal of the settlement and notable events in the lives of some of the leading missionaries. According to European Americana Fernandez was only a contributor to the text, which was actually written by Domenico Vandiera of Siena. The work "is of great importance for the history of Sao Paulo, as it deals with the incursion of the "Bandeirantes" into the missions of Paraguay. Southey used it for his History of Brazil."

Volume I only of a work that was never completed: only Volumes I, II, III & VI were ever published, the last two volumes of astronomical, magnetical, and meteorological observations being quite scarce. The present volume contains information on Chile's geography, climate, earthquakes, government, social condition, mineral and agricultural resources, and commerce and an account of the expedition's travels in the country. The expedition failed in its primary objective to determine the solar parallax as very little was done to conduct simultaneous observations of Venus and Mars in the northern hemisphere, but it did result in the establishment of a permanent observatory in Santiago.
