Apostolic Brief establishing the general statutes for the foundation and government of the â€œCustodias de Misionerosâ€, in the internal provinces (â€œProvincias Internasâ€) of New Spain. The â€œCustodiasâ€, translated as â€œcustodiansâ€, were members of the Catholic clergy that were sent to missions in remote places to direct the evangelizing tasks and spread the faith. These statutes establish the way those custodians were selected, the period they were to remain in the missions, and their faculties. The â€œProvincias Internasâ€ was an administrative district of New Spain formed by the territories of present-day northern Mexico and southwestern United States: Coahuila, Texas, New Mexico, Durango, Nuevo LeÃ³n, Sonora and California.
Worming to lower gutter margin intruding into text in the latter pages; in "N. 34" at top of title page else very good overall.
