Abstract:

The first newsletter to appear in this country, printed in 1637 by the celebrated Tomas Pinpin, has recently been acquired locally to augment our Filipiniana collection which has been greatly depleted by World War II. This work is entitled "Surcesos Felices que por Mar y Tierra ha dado a las armas Espańolas; en las Islas Filipipinas contra el Mindanao; y en las de Terrenate, contra los Holandeses, for fin del ańo de 1636, y principio del de 1637".
