In 1947, Iberian colonial maritime scholar Charles R. Boxer acquired a late 16th c. manuscript by an anonymous scribe who had compiled eyewitness accounts of Spanish and Portuguese expeditions. Through detailed descriptions and lavish illustrations, this manuscript depicted the customs, costumes, and ways of life of the peoples of East and Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines.
This new bilingual edition, transcribed and edited by Isaac Donoso ; translated and annotated by Ma. Luisa Garcia, Carlos Quirino, marks the beginning of the commemoration of 500 years of Philippine-Spanish encounters from 1521 to 2021.
