Juan Manuel de Velasco (1727-1792), born in Riobamba, Ecuador, and having studied with the Jesuits in his home town, entered the novitiate at Latacunga, studied philosophy and theology, and was ordained in 1753. Over the following years, traveling to all parts of his native land, he gathered information about its history, legends, flora and fauna. When an edict of Charles III expelled the Jesuits from Ecuador, he retired to Faenza, Italy and wrote his Modern History of the Kingdom of Quito and the Chronicles of the Jesuit Province of the same Kingdom, and other works. He died in Italy in 1792, but his work enshrines the earliest stories of Ecuador, and he is now regarded as a spiritual founder of his nation.

From the library of Swedish antiquarian bookdealer Björn Löwendahl (1941-2013).
