The Spanish Embassy in cooperation with PHIMCOS (Philippine Map Collectors Society) has put up a map exhibit at the Yuchengco Museum, corner Ayala Avenue and Gil Puyat (Buendia).
Aside from the exhibit of 60 maps and prints, the famous Pedro Murillo Velarde map of 1744 is on display. This map (made of rice paper) is what was included in his HISTORIA DE LA PROVINCIA DE PHILIPINAS DE LA COMPANIA DE JESUS. THE BOOK AND MAP WAS WORKED ON BY FILIPINO ARTIST, ENGRAVER AND
PRINTED IN MANILA IN 1749.
Aside from the exhibit a talk on the Life and Works of the famous Jesuit Cannonist and Cartographer (of which of you assisted me in locating some pertinent information) will be delivered on Saturday afternoon 3:30 to 5:00 PM, the general public is invited. A light merienda will be served after the talk, compliments of the Spanish Embassy.
