Catalogue Note

The Chaco Basin is on the borders of modern Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay; there were several Jesuit missions there and this account, by the Jesuit Pedro Lozano (1697-1752), is considered the first natural history of the region. The map shows the Jesuit missions as well as native settlements and the locations of various martyrdoms of Jesuits. The Chaco became known as an area of resistance to Spanish attempts to force the local populations into servitude.
