About this Item

Woodcut headpiece and tailpiece. Woodcut initials and woodcut factotum initials. Footnotes. Text in two columns. Occasional light dampstains. Overall in very good to fine condition. Contemporary ink inscription on front free endleaf recto. (8 ll.), 339 pp. Pages 173, 269, 282, 291, and 337 misnumbered 373, 169, 582, 191, and 737, respectively. Signature "T" omitted, as issued: text and pagination follow. *** Second edition of this collection of eight works by a leading Spanish legal authority, some of which pertain to laws governing Spanish conquest and settlement in America. All except two had been published previous to the first collected edition, which appeared simultaneously in Saragossa and Madrid, 1676, with slightly different title pages. Perhaps the most important work in this collection is the "Discurso, y alegacion en derecho, sobre la culpa que resulta contra el General D. Juan de Benavides Becan, y Almirante D. Juan de Leoz . en razon de aver desamparado la flota de su cargo, que el ano de 1628 venia a estos Reinos de la Provincia de Nueva España . en manos del Cossario Olandes, en el Puerto, y Baia de Matanças ." (pp. 245-334). Its account of the capture of a Spanish silver fleet by the Dutch admiral Piet Heyn at Matanzas, Cuba in 1628 makes it one of the crucial sources for the history of the war between the Spanish and the Dutch. The "Discurso" had been published separately at Madrid, 1631, and in that edition is extremely rare.In one of the works not published separately, Solorzano Pereira discusses whether officials in the Chancellaria de Valladolid had the right to brand the faces of some gypsies accused of theft (pp. 335-9). The other work not published separately, "Papel politico, con lugares de buenas letras, sobre la variedad de los dictamenes de los hombres, assi en el Iuzgar, como en el Discurrir acerca de qualquier cosa" (pp. 201-8), discusses how men come to disagree, with copious quotations from classical authors.Solorzano Pereira was a Spanish jurist who for a time lived in Lima, where he was a member of the Senate. After his return to Spain he became legal advisor to the Council of the Indies. His De jure Indiarum or Politica Indiana, first published in Madrid, 1629, is a major source on all aspects of Indian life.*** Medina, BHA 4792. Sabin 86545. Aguiar Piñal VIII, 290, no. 2265.
