BIBLIOGRAFIAS

This section lists every bibliography of ecuatoriana in the Humanities, the Social Sciences, and the Natural Sciences published before Jan. 1996 and for which I was able to obtain or to establish a satisfactory description as of Dec. 1999.

As of 1999, the history of bibliography in Ecuador remained to be written. The only attempt to establish some of the benchmarks was Alfredo Chaves's indispensable Fuentes principales de la bibliografía ecuatoriana (item 54). According to Chaves the first bibliography "realizado en el Ecuador" was Juan de Velasco's Cátalogo de algunos escritores antiguos y modernos del Perú y Quito (Quito: Impr. del Gobierno, 1885; 6 p.). However, Velasco's Cátalogo was not a bibliography per se but the bibliographic apparatus of his Historia del reino de Quito (item 1532), reprinted from the 1841-1844 edition thereof.

It could be argued that the first Ecuadorian bibliography was that of Antonio de Alcedo (1736-1812). There are difficulties with this contention too, however. Although quiteño born, Alcedo was a Spaniard in every sense that mattered, and his subject was the Americas at large, not his colony of birth. Nonetheless, his Bibliotheca americana (item 2) remains a major source of information on sixteenth-, seventeenth-, and eighteenth-century publications on the New World, including the future Ecuador.

The earliest bibliography of ecuatoriana per se therefore appears to be Nicolás Anrique Reyes's 1891 Noticia de algunas publicaciones ecuatorianas anteriores a 1792 (item 8).

Bibliographic control of ecuatoriana also had yet and perhaps still remains to be achieved. The Biblioteca General de la Universidad Central del Ecuador, however, endeavored to register national publications in the second half of the 1970s (see items 9-11), and the Cuenca branch of the Banco Central del Ecuador's Centro de Investigación y Cultura made a comparable effort in the late 1970s and the 1980s (see items 65, 12, and 20). Both attempts at bibliographic control were commendable, but far from complete. Unfortunately, the Centro de Investigación y Cultura's Anuario bibliográfico ecuatoriano died with the 1987 issue. That I have been unable to determine when the Biblioteca General de la Universidad Central del Ecuador's Bibliografía ecuatoriana or the annual cumulation thereof (items 9-11) ceased to be published is symptomatic of the lack of bibliographic control and of the difficulty in doing research in and on Ecuador.

When the first manuscript catalog of a library was compiled in Ecuador is unkown. I suspect, however, that it will turn out to have been an inventory of the holdings of the Dominican predecesor of the Biblioteca de la Universidad Central or of the Jesuit forerunner of the Biblioteca Nacional. The first printed catalog of a library was that of the Biblioteca Pública del Azuay, each vol. of which was individually entitled: I, Ciencias eclesiásticas (Cuenca: Impr. de la Universidad, 1890); II, Jurisprudencia (1890); IV, Historia (1890)--vol. 3 never appeared; V, Literatura (1891); VI, Ciencias; VII, Medicina (1891); VIII, Artes y oficios (1891). The most recent published catalogs of libraries as of July 1997, were the ongoing Diccionario bibliográfico ecuatoriano of the Biblioteca Ecuatoriana "Aurelio Espinosa Pólit" (item 26) and the CD-ROM catalog of the library of the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador.

The earliest bibliography of works on the history--in the broad sense --of Ecuador, albeit only of the colonial period, was Nicolás Espinosa Cordero's 1934 Bibliografía ecuatoriana (item 68). The first comprehensive register of ecuatoriana, including historical materials, was Carlos Manuel Larrea's 1948-1953 Bibliografía científica del Ecuador (item 110). The most complete as well as up-to-date bibliography of works on and published sources for the reconstruction of the history of Ecuador used to be Robert E. Norris's 1978 Guía bibliográfica para el estudio de la historia ecuatoriana (item 150).

In addition to the bibliographies and bibliographical studies already mentioned and listed below, see: Rodrigo Fierro Benítez's Catálogo del libro ecuatoriano de medicina: obras seleccionadas, siglo XVIII hasta 1995 (Quito: Academia Ecuatoriana de Medicina, 1995; 169 p.) and his Bibliografía científica medica ecuatoriana publicada en el exterior (Quito: Casa de la cultura ecuatoriana "Benjamín Carrión," 1995; 422 p. [Colección: Bibliografía científica ecuatoriana; no.1]); and Jorge Núñez Sánchez's La historiografía ecuatoriana (item 265) that lists and discusses some important works not seen by me.

8. Anrique Reyes, Nicolás. Noticia de algunas publicaciones ecuatorianas anteriores a 1792. Santiago de Chile: Impr. Nacional, 1891. 23 p.

Items 9-11 constitute a serial, the complete chronology of which remains to be determined. Each vol. includes author, title, and subject indexes. The 1975 issue appears to be "vol. 1," and cumulates the first six issues of Bibliografía ecuatoriana, a bimonthly that began with año 1, no. 1 (ene./feb. 1975) and succumbed sometime thereafter. The annual cumulation--of which the 1978-1979 issue (item 11) may have been the last published--is also defunct. Together with its bimonthly counterpart this annual constituted a notable attempt to establish control over national publications. Not related to items 12, 20, and 65.

12. Anuario bibliográfico ecuatoriano ... 1982-1987. Cuenca: Banco Central del Ecuador, Centro de Investigación y Cultura, 1984-1991. 7 v.

Vol. 1 (410 p.) is entirely given over to bibliography. References to many other Peruvian and even more Ecuadorian publications are to be found in the notes to vols. 2 and 3, to which access may be had via the "Indice onomástico" at the end of vol. 3. Vols. 2-3 also constitute a balanced, comprehensive, more or less objective, and scholarly treatment of the boundary dispute between Ecuador and Peru, of the history of the Upper Amazon Basin, and relations in general between the two countries by a Peruvian intellectual. The author, a retired career diplomat, is respected in both countries.

16. Barrera B., Jaime. "Bibliografía para el estudio de la prehistoria ecuatoriana," Anales de la Universidad Central, 58:299 (ene./mayo 1937), 99-149.

Supplements and provides a cumulative personal and corporate body author index to Ecuador, bibliografía analítica (item 65) and Anuario bibliográfico ecuatoriano (item 12).

An exceptionally comprehensive bibliography of national authors as well as a catalog of the largest collection of ecuatoriana in the world.

It is not known how many "annual" expositions and book fairs were held, but given the adverse state of the economy in the 1930s, it is unlikely that there were more than a few, if in fact more than one was held.

Items 80 and 81 are month-by-month listing of national publications of books and periodicals issued between Jan. 1986 and Dec. 1995, and, therefore, a quasi-continuation of items 16, 20, and 65. Primarily useful as guides to what was/is being published. Unfortunately, however, they do not include the majority of government documents. Both items 80 and 81, however, do include insightful and informative articles--originally published in El Comercio, Hoy, and La Hora as were the lists of publications--on booksellers and the book trade in Ecuador.

187. Stols, Alexandre A.M. Historia de la imprenta en el Ecuador de 1755 a 1830. Quito: Casa de la Cultura Ecuatoriana, 1956. xv, 261 p.

A model as well as comprehensive but not exhaustive bibliography of early Ecuadorian imprints (275 books and 29 periodicals). In this regard, it should be noted that there are a considerable number of pre-1831 publications in archives, libraries, museums, and private collections in Guayaquil, Cuenca, and elsewhere not seen by or known to Stols, who apparently limited his research to Quito. Nonetheless, it cannot be overemphasized that Stol's work is the most complete bibliography of early ecuatoriana that had been attempted as of July 1997. It is also technically sound.

197. Watson, Gayle Hudgens. Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela: An Annotated Guide to Reference Materials in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Metuchen: Scarecrow Press, 1971. 279 p.

Useful for works published through 1960s, including some not to be found here within. Registers and comments upon 894 articles, books, and periodicals. Arranged by subjects and within subject by author, including issuing corporate body. Ecuador is the least well covered, partly because of the relative lack of bibliographic production vis-a-vis Colombia and Venezuela, partly because the University of Texas at Austin and Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where this work was done, had not collected systematically or well on Ecuador. Lacks a country index.
