Doctrina Christiana

"DOCTRINA CHRISTIANA"

The First Book Printed in the Philippines, Manila, 1593
Title in Spanish:
"Doctrina Christiana, en lengua española y tagala, corregida por los Religiosos de las Ordenes. Impresa con licencia, en S. Gabriel, de la Order de S. Domingo. En Manila, 1593".
Luigi Banzi, a bookseller form Bologna, is said to have purchased it from a school teacher of the Romagna region some time late in 1942 or early 1943. It had belonged to a peasant family whose forebears had lived or visited the Philippines in the sixteenth century.
The book was sold to a Paris collector who in turn sold it to William H. Schab of New York in 1946, and was then acquired by Lessing J. Rosenwald, millionaire bibliophile of Philadelphia, who donated it to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. the following year.

"DOCTRINA CHRISTIANA" (Chinese edition)

Title in Spanish:
"Doctrina Christiana en letra y lengua China, compuesta por los madres ministros de los Sangleyes, de la Orden de Sancto Domingo. Con licencia, por Ken Yong, China, en el Parian de Manila".
The full title in Hokkien dialect is:
"Hsin-k'o sengshih Kao-mu Hsien chuan Wu-chi t'ien-chu cheng-chiao chen-chuan shih-lu" or
"A printed edition of the true faith in the Infinite God, by the religious master Kao-mu Hsien."
This copy was located in 1948 by Fray José Ma. González of the Dominican order in Manila through an article in the Chinese Journal "T'oung Pao" wherein the French scholar Paul Pelliot had reported some two decades earlier that it could be found in the Vatican Library in Rome.
