Mexico, circ. 1670 “ Although this MS. has the title of. Camino del Cielo,' after a most diligent comparison with the printed book of Father Leon which has that title, we have been unable to discover any relation between the one and the other. The contents of this volume can easily be recognized and may be divided into two parts. I. An extensive CONFESSARIO occupies the first part, consisting of thirty

leaves, including six blank leaves. II. A collection of Sermons and religious instructions on different subjects,

occupying one hundred and ninety leaves, of which sixteen are blank


On one of the blank leaves we read “al Pe. Oracio Carochi,' which seems to intimate that the MS. belonged to him.

The greater portion of it is written in an almost microscopic hand

writing, although very clear and legible.” 30124 CHIMALTOPOCATL. Apuntes para una Gramatica Mexicana ó

EXTREMELY RARE. Collation : 16 prel. leaves, including Title (one l. wanting) ; 112 numbered leaves ; Errata, 2 ll. The heading of the Errata is printed in italics. The Ramirez copy contained in addition another list of Errata, with the heading printed in Roman letters, but it is doubtful whether both lists belong to this edition. Juan Baptista, or Bautista, was a native Mexican. He became a Franciscan of the province of Santo Evangelio de Mejico. He taught philosophy and theology, and had for his pupil F. Torquemada, the author of “Monarquia Indiana.” He was esteemed the most learned of his time in the Mexican language, which he spoke and wrote with

purity and elegance. 30137 LEON (Martin de) Sermonario del tiempo de todo el año dupli

An INTERESTING and VALUABLE COLLECTION chiefly of official papers in cases of legal process, etc., but including also a Miracle Play on the subject of Abraham, in Mexican and Spanish. It comprises further the two following printed documents which we have not seen mentioned by any bibliographer.

reimpresso en Mexico por Zuniga, 1809. 2 leaves in 8vo.

rise against the North-American invader : a single sheet broadside. 30142 MANUSCRIT DIT MEXICAIN, No. 2 de la Bibl. Imp., photo

1607 VERY RARE. The Fischer copy is apparently the only other copy-and that a bad one, wanting the two leaves of Index-which has hitherto turned up in the London market. None of the bibliographers has mentioned the book, except Brunet's continuator, and he, having only seen the Fischer copy, omits to mention the two last leaves of Index, which must be extraordinarily rare.

1555 No perfect copy known ; in fact, the book is of such extraordinary rarity, that only some five copies altogether are believed to be extant ; and so little was known about the existence of the volume, that even the last edition of

Brunet records it only under the false name of Olmos. 30154
