First published in 1629, with a second volume in 1639, this important analysis of Spanish colonial law was written by a Spanish jurist who served as a judge of the high court at Lima. Married to the Creole daughter of the governor of Cuzco and resident in Peru for eighteen years, he acquired an unparalleled knowledge of the law and history of the Indies. According to Gongora, his treatise is the "most systematic juridical formulation of the problems of legitimisation of dominion in the seventeenth century [and] enjoyed an unrivalled prestige in the official and legal circles of the Indies for a century and a half." It went though several editions in Latin and Spanish. OCLC locates 9 copies of our 1777 Latin edition in North America, 3 in law libraries (Columbia, Harvard, UT-Austin).
