Contents: Francisco María Piccolo, S.J. (1654-1729) was one of the first Jesuit missionaries in Baja California Sur, New Spain, now Mexico. His letters and reports are important sources for the ethnography and early history of the peninsula. His Informe or Report of 1702, published in Mexico City, was an influential early account of the peninsular missions, although its optimism about the potential of Baja California was something of an embarrassment to later Jesuit apologists. He conducted several exploratory trips seeking neophytes and future mission sites, including journeys to what would later be Mulegé, Mission La Purísima and Mission San Ignacio. His accounts of these travels contain additional ethnographic information on the Cochimí.
This reproduction copy of the Informe was printed in 1967 in a limited edition of 600 copies by Grant Dahlstrom at The Castle Press, Pasadena. Contains a reproducion copy of Kino's map of 1710 in a pocket attached to the inside rear cover. Indexed.
