[VIETNAM - PHOTOGRAPHS OF HILL TRIBES].
[A Collection of thirteen postcards with images of different ethnic minority groups]. About 1920s.
The collection of b/w photo postcards (14 x 9 cm) illustrate different ethnic tribes from the highlands in the northern parts of Vietnam (Tonkin). At this time Vietnam was a French protectorate with a French governor. These minority groups still live in the remote mountainous terrain cultivating rice, vegetables and some are raising animals. The people always wear traditional clothes, more or less colourful, whether at home, in the field, or in town. The clothes of one group are quite different from that of other groups. The pictures depict people of different tribes in traditional clothes including Hmong, Tay, Nung, Dzao, Yéo and Yao (Dao), from the provinces of Là Cai (5), Cao Bâng (4), Son la (1), Ha Giang (1), Huyên (1) and Yén Bâi (1). Some of the cards have names written in French and Chinese on the verso.

[LLOBRESSOLS, BENITO]:
Memoria circa certi riti Tunchinesi sostenuti da' Pp. Agostiniani e da Alcuni altri missionarj presentata da' Pp. Domenicani Spagnuoli della provincia delle Filippine alla Sacra Congregazione di Propaganda Fide. [Rome] 1757.
Small 4to. Pp. 22. Later (19th century) green boards, cloth spine. With early eccleciastical stamp on title and remains of old shelf label on upper cover. Some light foxing. First edition. Rare Spanish Dominican report on Confucian funeral customs in Tonkin, and about the Jesuits tolerance of these rites. Only one library copy found; at Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana. Vietnam, along with Korea and Japan, has heavily been influenced by China concerning its Confucian culture of certain funerary rites, especially in the cult of ancestors. The Chinese Rites Controversy and the Roman position regarding ancestor worship affected Vietnamese Catholicism as well, profoundly and extensively, even until today. The Dominicans and Augustinians contrary to the Jesuits refused any adaptation to local customs and were horrified by the practices of the Jesuits. Benito Llobressols (d.1800) was born in Gerona and served as Apostolic missionary in Tonkin.
