1769. México. Jose Antonio de Hogal. In-Folio (272mm x 197mm). 5 nn + 396 + 6 nn. Contemporary rigid vellum over boards, red morocco title label on spine, slightly chipped, some vellum pieces lacking on edges, now restored, slightlysoiled, end papers renewed, missing ties, still good and quite possibly it´s original Mexican binding. Extremely fresh and clean copy, title page with a seal and inscription removed at an early stage, not affecting text, a few foxing spots, pin hole sized marginal hole in last few leaves, excellent copy. Second edition. One of the most beatiful books printed in México in the 18th century. Title page printed in red and black –not usual for American printing houses-, with allegorical woodcut, engraved initials, several woodcuts in text, of winged child Angels, another allegorical woodcut at the end of the work, showing America over an Eagle and exotic animals, bearing a crown and holding Papal attributes, most engraved Emmanuel Villavicencio. The work was first printed in 1556 in México as well, today practically impossible to find in commerce. In the second Concilio, a most interesting chapter XIX says “Necesario es para la converfion de los Naturales faber fus lenguas[of the places they are in]”, calling the Priests to learn the native tongues. After the end of the chapters, it continues with a detailed part for each Church, including, amongst others, the “Santa Iglesia de México”, “Santa Iglesia de Tlaxcála”, “Santa Iglesia de Goathemala”, “Santa Iglesia de Antequera”. Some times found with the third and fourth Concilios, printed in Latin. Palau, 142386. Sabin, 42064.
