Manuale Officiorum pro Aliquibus Festis Domini Nostri Jesu Christi et Sanctorum in Mexicana Ecclesia

Matriti (Madrid): Apud Joachinun Ibarra, 1772. Hardcover. 12mo. (2), 604pp. Full contemporary sheep. Spine and boards tooled in gilt. Page edges gilt and gauffered. With one (of 2) brass clasps (only the rear catch remains of the missing upper clasp). Title page in black and red, and with an engraved seal showing Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception against the Keys of St. Peter and surrounded with the title: Sancta Metropolitana Ecclesia Mexicana. (Bela Cruz sculp.) Full page engraved frontispiece of the Crucifixion (F. Salomo lo gravo). Printed in red and black throughout. Marginal worming to the opening signatures, without loss except for two letters of one word on the title and just touching the frame of the frontispiece engraving; lacks one clasp; generally well rubbed; front free endpaper replaced at a date early enough to subject it to the above worming, else a good copy. Lists the offices proper to the saints commemorated in Mexico, and with some additions in early hands as well as a printed leaflet tipped onto the final endpapers (St. Paul of the Cross). Some of the entries indicate at their head why they are included, e.g., Die X Junii, In festo Sancti Primitivi martyris cujus Reliquiae asservantur in hac Metrioplitana Ecclesia. In Latin. Good.
