Bernab Cobo born at Lopera in Spain, 1582 died at Lima, Peru, 9 October 1657 was a Spanish Jesuit missionary and writer He played a part in the early history of quinine by his description of cinchona bark he brought some to Europe on a visit in 1632.He was a thorough student of nature and man in Spanish America His long residence 61 years , his position as a priest and, several times, as a missionary, gave him unusual opportunities for obtaining reliable information The Spanish botanist Cavanilles gave the name of Cob a to a genus of plants belonging to the Bignoniaceae of Mexico, Cobaea scandens being its most striking representative.He wrote two works, one of which is incomplete It is also stated that he wrote a work on botany in ten volumes, which, it seems, is lost.Of his main work, to which biographers give the title Historia general de las Indias , and which he finished in 1653, only the first half is known and has appeared in print four volumes, at Seville, 1890 and years succeeding The remainder, in which he treats, or claims to have treated, of every geographical and political subdivision in detail, was either never finished, or is lost.His other book appeared in print in 1882, and forms part of the History of the Inca Empire mentioned, but he made a separate manuscript of its in 1639, and so it became published as Historia de la fundaci n de Lima , a few years before the publication of the principal manuscripts.The History of the Inca Empire may, in American literature, be compared with one work only, the General and Natural history of the Indies by Oviedo On the animals and plants of the continent, it is complete than Nieremberg, Hernandez, and Monardes In regard to the pre Columbian past and vestiges, Cobo is, for the South American west coast, a source of primary importance, for close observations of customs and manners, and generally accurate descriptions of the principal ruins of South America.
