The book : Scarce 17th century First edition of  this italian biography of Saint Rose of Lima, America's first Catholic saint, with commentary on the religious practices of the Incas. 

Saint Rose of Lima :  Rose of Lima (She was born as Isabel Flores de Oliva -- 20 April 1586 – 24 August 1617), was a member of the Third Order of Saint Dominic in Lima, Peru, who became known for both her life of severe asceticism and her care of the needy of the city through her own private efforts. A lay member of the Dominican Order, she was declared a saint by the Catholic Church, being the first person born in the Americas to be canonized as such.
As a saint, Rose of Lima has been designated as a co-patroness of the Philippines along with Saint Pudentiana; both saints were moved to second-class patronage in September 1942 by Pope Pius XII, but Rose remains the primary patroness of Peru and of the indigenous natives of Latin America. Her image is featured on the highest denomination banknote of Peru.
