[MEXICAN IMPRINT]
LORENZANO, FRANCISCO ANTONIO (editor). Concilios Provinciales Primero, Segundo, celebrados en la muy noble, y muy leal ciudad de Mexico.
Mexico: Joseph Antonio de Hogal, 1769. First edition. Bound in full contemporary Spanish vellum, title hand-written in brown ink on spine. [10], 396, [12] pp. This copy with excised bottom portion of title-page, presumably to conceal an owner's name; overall, an attractive example.

Sabin states: "The first Council was originally printed in 1556, at Mexico, by Juan Pablos. This collection of Mexican Councils is of importance as containing those of 1535 and 1565, nowhere else to be found." In addition to the Councils is a section that gives the biographical particulars of the Mexican bishops, see by see, as well as four pastoral letters, none of which are published elsewhere. A beautifully printed volume, with attractive and elaborate tailpieces, from the press of one of Mexico's greatest printers.

Estimated at $300 - $500
