Unanúe, José Hipólito.  Discurso sobre el panteon que esta contruyendo en al convento grande de San Francisco de esta capital. Lima: Real Imprenta de Niños Expósitos, 1803. Small 4to (19.4 cm, 7.65"). [3] ff., 24, [1], [1 (blank)] pp.; lacks the folding engraving.
$800.00

First of two editions, both issued in 1803. Unanúe offers a written description, including measurements and siting details, of the large mausoleum that the head of the main Franciscan monastery in Lima was erecting for the burial of members of religious societies, and of the order itself. The description is definitely evocative and informative, although this copy lacks the large folding plate of the structure that Marcelo Cabello engraved.
