    Does anyone out there have copies of the following books/titles?

    Pardo de Tavera, T.H., "Una Memorial de Anda y Salazar" Manila, 1899.

    Chirino, P. (S.J.), "Relacion de las Islas Filipinas y de lo que
    en ellas an trabaido los padres de la Compania de Jesus
    ", Rome:
    Esteban Paulino, 1604
    <<EDIT --scratch this one, I found a txt file on Gutenberg opensource,
    thanks to Philip for PM'ing me so quickly. Just a little 'desktop publishing' and I'm good for this title :) >>

    pp. 767 - 872 of vol. LV (Analytical Index J-Z) of
    Blair E. & J. Robertson, "The Philippine Islands 1493-1898",
    Cleveleand, Arthur H. Clark Co., 1904

    Water damage and termites have left my copies fretty puch mucked-up
    beyond recovery. Mere facsimiles/xeroxes are all I'm after (maybe
    I'll have them re-bound in the surviving covers), but if you're
    willing to sell any originals ( :) ) ...hehe.

    I'm posting here, on the off chance I can avoid annoying a number
    of librarians who may already have seen quite enough of me.


    PS: If anyone out there has Oropilla y Fortich (2001), I'd like
    some feedback on whether it's worth the price.

    At the risk of sounding like an idiot ,what are the books about? I'm assuming Philippine history?

    I looked at my library and the only classics I found were the autographed editions of Pugad Baboy 1-3

    Asking actually disproves idiocy.
    I mean, I didn't know what they were before I picked them up,
    and yes, they relate to Philippine history.

    Chirino is a valuable record of late-15th century Philippines:
    what our ancestors wrote, wore, etc. ---lightly buried under
    a listing of Spanish Jesuit accomplishments, of course.

    Pardo de Tavera reproduces the accomplishments of Don Simon Anda y Salazar,
    who led the defense against the British who invaded the Philippines
    in the 1760's.

    And, I sort of tuned out of Pugad Baboy when Polgas quit essaying
    his 'wisedog' alter-ego :)
