Second copy located, of the biographies of two Franciscan Saints. The first is Jacques de la Marche (1391-1476), that is Giacomo della Marca, an Italian Friar Minor and preacher, who travelled through Germany, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, Bohemia, Poland, Hungary and Bosnia. He was beatified in 1624 and canonized in 1726.
The second part contains the life of the Spanish missionary Francisco Solano (1549-1610). On the instigation of King Philip II, Solano left for South America in 1589. By way of Panama he made it to Peru and later to Tucuman (Argentina) and Paraguay. We have located only one other copy: at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
A few occasional spots, a tear in the fore-edge margin of pp. 7/8, otherwise in very good condition.
