[JESUITS]. VALIGNANO, ALEXANDRO / GOMEZ, PEDRO / RUGGIERI, MICHELE / FROÊS, LUÊS / ALMEIDA, ANTONIO D', ETC.:
Avvisi della Cina, et Giapone del fine dell'anno 1587. Con l'arriuo de' Signori Giaponesi nell'India. Cauati dalle lettere della Compagnia di Giesu, riceuute il mese d'Ottobre 1588. Venetia, appresso i Gioliti, 1588.
. Small 8vo. Pp. 64. With engraved woodcut on title and engraved headlines and intitials in the text. Rebound with old mss vellum decorated with musical notes in red and black. Old ownership signature on title. Old restoration to title page (no loss). A rare collection of Jesuit letters devoted to China (three letters) and Japan (three letters), first published in Rome in the same year. The letters about China by Alexandro Valignano, Antonio d'Almeida etc. describes the progress of the missionary work and the difficulties encountered. Besides the religious work the Jesuits introduced Western science, astronomy, mathematics etc to the Chinese imperial court. One letter includes a narrative about Michele Ruggieri's two months travel into the interior of China. It is beleived that he was one of the first Christian missionaries to have entered Mainland China in the Ming Dynasty. Ruggieri and another wellknown missionary Matteo Ricci managed to establish a permanent Christian mission at Zhàoqing in 1583. At this time the missionaries understood the importance of learning the native language. It is thought that Ruggieri and Ricci compiled the first Portugese/Chinese dictionary for which they developed a consistent system for transcribing Chinese words in Latin alphabet. However the ms was lost, rediscovered in 1934, and finally published in 2001. The three letters about Japan written in 1586 and 1587 includes one important by Lu’s Fro’s (pp.18-56), a Portugese missionary who lived in Japan from 1563 until 1592. He was in charge of the correspondence to Rome and he wrote "Historia de Japan" based on his own experiences as well as other Jesuit letters and reports (first published in 20th century). In this work Fro“s writes about the death of his friend Oda Nobunaga, a powerful samurai who inititated the unification of Japan and was an important ally to the Jesuits. Cordier BJ 107.
