About this Item

Only edition. This official declaration of the Order of the Immaculate Conception of the convent Jesus Maria of Mexico encompasses a historical synopsis of the foundation and progress of that monastery and ten chapters on the => the religious life of the sisters ? their vow of poverty in history and practice; admission into the monastery; and the necessary approval of the Royal Court to implement reforms, according to the rules set forth by Frai Payo Enriquez de Rivera, O.S.A. (1622?84, appointed Archbishop of Mexico in 1668). The document is addressed to the fourth provincial council, called by Archbishop Lorenzana, and is a plea on behalf of the nuns to not change how things are done and administered in the nunnery, to not introduce innovations. Guatemalan by birth, Guevara (d. 1804) studied civil and canonical jurisprudence at the Tridentine Seminary in Mexico, where he graduated from the university and became a lawyer at the royal court. One of the => leading lawyers in Mexico, he ascended quickly to high office, and was appointed governor in absence of the viceroy four times; according to Beristain, he was called the "American Ulpian" (after the Roman jurist) by at least one contemporary. Folio (28.9 cm, 11.4"). [1] f., 217, [1] p. Palau 129542; Medina, Mexico, 5451; Beristain, II, p. 61. Recent marbled paper over boards, title and author gilt on green leather spine label, new endpapers. Short, shallow instance of insect gnawing at fore-edge of first ten leaves and very limited, minor worming throughout along with mild to moderate mostly marginal speckles of foxing; light waterstaining at fore-edge of some pages and occasional inkstains or smudges; one corner of textblock bumped or "creased across" (with no tearing) and another corner just bumped. A copy not "fine" but definitely worth having. Bookseller Inventory # 31197
