About this Item

This is the first and only edition of a well-written and footnoted biography of St. Teresa de Jes?s. It seeks to rebut negative criticisms and actual charges of harboring vice that had been contained in some 18th-century peninsular publications. Neither Medina, nor Palau, nor Garritz, nor the cataloguer for the NUC Pre-1956 entry notes a plate as present. The engraved plate in our copy, which is signed "Araoz M.o," shows St. Teresa kneeling in prayer in her garden. In the background are a lake or a river and a mountain. Christ is seen off to the right, emerging from a stand of trees near the water. In front of the saint are some flowers and other cultivated plants which are being watered by an irrigation system fed by a well; two symbolic doves and a yearning (or dedicated) heart also appear. Below the engraving is a quotation from Ecclesiastes that the saint used in her writings. The engraver was Manuel de Ar?oz, one of the first students of the Mexican Academy of Painting, a noted engraver, and later subdirector of the Academy's department of engraving. 8vo. [4] ff., plt., 44 pp. Medina, Mexico, 10812; Palau 293431; Garritz 1569. On the engraver, see: Diccionario Porr?a de historia, biograf?a y geograf?a de M?xico (5a ed.), I, 165. Without the plain wrappers one expects. Three pin-type wormholes affecting some pages, including the plate, not offensively. Discoloration along inner margin of title-page; soiling affecting edges/margins variably; upper outer portions of title-leaf, last two text leaves, and final blank most affected. Ample-margined copy.
