Luis Garcia Pimentel took over his father collection upon his death. How many volumes of manuscripts his library contained cannot be said with any degree of certainty. All we know is that at the end of his life his library was one of the finest and richest of private collection in Mexico. A typewritten list prepared in 1937 by his grandson, Juoaquin, shows that the collection contained at least eighty-seven volumes of manuscripts, only sixty-nine of which were listed by Federico Gomez de Orozco in his catalog in 1927. His son Garcia Pimentel picked up where his father left off, and continued publishing material from the collection. He began anther series of volumes Documentos Historicos de Mejico of which this is volume II in the series on the relationships between the bishoprics of Tlaxcala, Michoacan, Oaxaca and other locations from the original manuscripts.
