Francesco Sacchini ( Paciano - Perugia 1570 - Roma 1625) compiled a chronological study on the history of the Jesuit Order in five parts (Pars Prima - Pars Quinta). The Pars Prima was first published in Rome in 1614, the Pars Secunda in Antwerp in 1620. We have here the '' Pars Quinta Tomus Prior et Posterior'' complete in two volumes in first edition. This fifth volume (first part) covers the period 1581-1590. During this period Claudio Aquaviva became head of the order and the Jesuits set up their mission in China with Matteo Ricci. The volume is fully indexed. This fifth volume is edited by Pierre Poussines (1609-1686), a French Jesuit called to Rome in 1654 to continu the work of Sacchini who had died already in 1625. The second part covers the period 1591-1616. ( Auguste Carayon ; Bibliographie Historique de la Compagnie de JÚsus item 10 . De Backer-Sommervogel VII col. 366). .
