Philadelphia: American Catholic Historical Society, 1894. Octavo. Item #028478
99-264 pages, issued as Records. 5, no. 2. The original manuscript was discovered in the Mexico City archives and published in 1863 by Buckingham Smith in an edition of 150 copies. The Catholic Historical Society used one of those remaining copies to publish this version in 1894 which is an early historical and descriptive account of that portion of Mexico with Sonora much of which today also occupies the part of Arizona that lies West and South of the Gila River. The description was written by an unknown Jesuit Father who deals with the country and the Apaches as they were at the time though he also deals with to a lesser extent with the Pima and the Seris. Only 160 copies were printed of this edition. Many of the pages are unopened. Bound in original stiff paper wraps lettered in blue, tape mends to spine and outer margin of front wrap with a stain. A very good copy housed within a slipcase. (see Howes S-578).
