xxiv+549 pages with 120 facsimile pages. Folio (13" x 9 1/2") bound in original publisher's wrappers. Originally written in English by Dr. Wagner, it was published only in Spanish. Translated by Joaquin Garcia Pimentel and Federico Gomez de Orozco. Limited to 1000 copies of which this is number 285 on "fulva charta de Coyoacan," a yellow-tinted paper manufactured in Coyoacan. First edition.

This monumental work was ten years in preparation. It contains a description of the books printed in Mexico before 1601 and, in most cases, includes a reproduction of the title page, references to other bibliographies, census of copies in public and private hands, and prices and dates of sale. The author modestly calls this a supplement to the bibliographies of Joaquin Garcia Icazbalceta, Jose Toribio Medina and Nicolas Leon. Actually it is the most complete and detailed work on printing in Mexico from 1539 to 1600 ever published.

Edge wear to wrappers with some closed tears else a very good copy still unread.
