The collection contains 480 papers dating from 1767 and his days at San Juan Capistrano. As such they provide abundant material not only for the study of Franciscan history, but for much of the foundation of Baja and California history. Following the passing of the illustrious Father Junipero Serra in 1784, the Presidency of the Missions in California passed to his biographer, Father Palou, but he quickly retired from his work in the field and spent his remaining days in the College of San Fernando in Mexico. Lasuen was then appointed Palou's successor. Uncommon, especially in such condition. Shipping surcharged due to size and weight of these volumes.
