A scarce account of the Capucin missions in Tibet from 1704. First published in Italian, this Spanish edition is considerably expanded with additional material from Fathers Antonio de Bertonio and Lorenzo de Velez, who met the translator in Madrid. The author describes aspects of Tibetan society, in particular religion, law, and the position of the Dalai Lama.
