Leipziger Repertorium der deutschen und ausländischen Literatur II/1, S. 533 (with an extensive description). Rare first edition of this pioneer work on the Brazilian flora by the Italian medical doctor, botanist and explorer Giovanni Casaretto (1812-1879) who travelled to Brazil in 1839 until 1840 together with the prince Eugene de Savoie-Carignan. He gives here a first list and description of the plants he collected during his travels. - Half-title with a manuscript dedication by Casaretto to the Marchese Cosimo Ridolfi. - Only minor foxing, mostly clean. Binding rubbed but still very decorative - probably bound as a present for the Marchese Ridolfi.

Castorena, Ignacio de. México plausible. Con la Trimphal demostración De la Santa Yglesia Metropolitana, en acción de gracias por la victoria del . . . Monarcha Philipo V . . . conseguida en los Campos de Brihuega, y Villaviciosa. México, Herederos de Juan Joseph Guillena Carrascoso, 1711. 8vo. Sewn, top edge shaved close to text, else very good. 420,00 EUR
Followed by "Racones de la lealtad clausulas de la finesa en elogio de las hazanas, que en los diez anos del reynado del Chatholico Monarcha Philipo V. ... ha celebrado la Sta. Yglesia Cathedral Metropolitana de México." The first work consists of 16 pp., the second of 40 pp.; this collation of the first part, which is definitely complete, differs from those on WorldCat. Some library listings indicate a third part of 14 pp., not present in this copy. An attractive example of early Colonial Mexican printing. Ignacio de Castorena was a cleric and supporter of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, who had much trouble with the ecclesiastical authorities. He founded in 1722 the first, albeit short-lived, "newspaper" in Hispanic America, the Gazeta de México y Noticias de Nueva Espana.
