folio, neatly written Original Manuscript on paper made by the Indians from the Agave, such as they used before the discovery of their country by the Spaniards, 95 leaves, bd. from the Ramirez collection, in red morocco case, £300.

Mexico, 1540 On the first page it has the following title in the handwriting of Father Sahagun, the lower half of which is wanting:

Siguense unos sermones de dominicas y de sanctos en lengua Mexicana: no traduzidos de sermonario alguno sino compuestos nuevamente a la medida de la capacidad de los Indios : breves en materia y en lenguage congruo venusto y llano facil de entender para todos los que le operen altos y baxos principales y macegolas, hombres y mugeres. Compusieronse el año de 1540 ; anse comenzado a corregir y añadir este ano de 1563, en este mes de Julio infra octava Visitationis. El autor los somete a la correccion de la madre sancta Yglesia romana con todas las otras obras que en esta lengua Mexicana a compuesto. fray bnardio. de Sabagun. Some leaves are wanting at the beginning, and there are two loose leaves. Then comes the following note in the handwriting of Father Sahagun:-Siguense unos sermones breves en la lengua Mexicana, el autor de ellos los somete a la correccion de la madre sancta Yglesia, co todas las demas obras suyas, son para todo el año de dominicas y Sanctos; no estan corregidos : fray bnardio. Sahagun.

On folio 88, the dominical sermons conclude with another note in Mexican in Father Sahagun's handwriting, and signed by him; then follows a blank leaf, and on the following commences a “ Sanctoral" on six leaves, the end wanting. The differences in the writing between the body of the book and the corrections made in 1563, are easily explained by the 23 years' interval. When he wrote the work first he was only about 45 years of age; he was not far from seventy when he began to make his additions and corrections. This MS. is undoubtedly one of the most curious and interesting volumes in the Mexican language ever offered for sale. In his knowledge of the Aztec language and literature, Sahagun has probably never had an equal. The historical work which he wrote concerning the Mexican empire, and which has been published by Bustamante, brought down upon him the abuse of his fellows, both lay and clerical, for aiding, as they said, to perpetuate the idolatry of

the nation. 30169 SAHAGUN. EXERCICIOS QUOTIDIANOS en lengua

Mexicana, sm. 4to. MS. plainly written, 86 pp. sd. £18.

Mexico, 1574--transcribed Sec. XVII The MS. begins thus:--“Comienza un exercicio en lengua Mexicana, sacado del sancto Evangelio y distribuido por todos los dias de la semana contiene meditaciones devotas muy provechosas para cualquier xpiano que se quiere llegar a Dios.” At the end, there is the inscription : “Este exercicio halle entre los yndios, no se quien le hizo ni quien se le dio tenia muchas faltas e incongruidades mas con verdad se puede dezir que se hizo de nuevo que no que se emendo. Este año de 1574, fray Bernardino de Sahagun.”

The MS. is in perfect preservation, and the handwriting is clear and legible-in fact, too boldly written to be the autograph of Sahagun. This is probably identical with the single MS. of the work which is mentioned by Beristain as being in his time in the College of St. Gregory at Mexico, and which he seems to have considered the original, just as Ramirez believed this


... Oquichuih fray Bernardo de Sahagum, 2 parts in 1 vol. folio, ORIGINAL MS. 27 II. wanting end ; probably one leaf only, as the author speaks of twentysix additions, and the MS. breaks off treating on the 24th, calf, £30.

Mexico, 1579 On the verso of the 16th leaf is the signature of Father Sahagun.

On the verso of the 31st leaf the original treatise concludes, and on the following commences the twenty-six additions on thirteen leaves. On the verso of the title-page to the additions is a “Prologo” in Spanish, from which it appears that Father Sahagun made the last corrections and additions to this work

in 1579. 30171 (? SAHAGUN) Dictionarium ex Hisniensi in Lati

Mexico, about 1746 The Huasteca or. Cuexteca language belongs to the Maya class, and is spoken in Tamaulipas and Vera Cruz.

The above preliminary discourse and geographical description were


omitted when the book was printed in 1767, to avoid, as the author said, an

unnecessary expansion of the volume. 30182 CONVERSACION en Lingua Huasteca, sm. 4to. MS. 56 pp. of

is very little material accessible for philological study on the subject of the Quiche language, yet its importance as the tongue of the civilized architectural people of Central America is very great. The Maya and Quiche languages are the oldest dialects of an important linguistic family unconnected with the Mexican Nahuatl.

There is no indication of the name of the author, nor of the time in which it was written ; although from the fact that he sometimes refers to Aguero,

its date must be posterior to 1666. 30191 BUCABULARIO de la lengua Castellena (sic) y Zapoteca Nexitza.
