Pedro Ribadeneira (b. Toledo, 1527; d. Madrid, 1611) may be regarded as one of the fathers of modern bibliography. His Illustrium Scriptorum Religionis Societatis Iesu Cataloguswas first published in Antwerp in 1602. The work records Jesuit figures alphabetically, each entry including a brief biography followed by a list of writings in chronological order. The bibliography went through numerous augmented editions during the seventeenth century. The 1676 Rome edition incorporated the revisions and additions of Philippus Alegambe and Nathaniel Southwell. These editors accorded Ribadeneira himself a prominent entry, the first page of which is printed in large, bold capitals. Sabin, 70777, citing Leclerc: "Ouvrage infiniment précieux pour la bibliographie et l’histoire des écrivains de la Cie. de Jésus."
