ARTE DE LENGUA MEXICANA CORREGIDO Por el - VÃÂ¡zquez GastelÃÂº, Antonio - 1726. 
Puebla: Por Diego FernÃÂ£dez Leon y por su original en la Impr. de Francisco Xavier de Morales y Salazar, 1726. ,54 [i.e., 53] leaves. Small quarto. 20th-century vellum over boards, vellum a little sprung and lightly soiled. Some upper and lower margins closely trimmed costing catchwords, signature signs, or portions of folio numbers, and just touching the base of one very large handsome tailpiece. Small ownership stamp in lower margin of verso of title. In all, a good copy of a difficult to obtain indigenous language book. The third edition of this uncommon and significant work on the language of the Aztecs, the first having appeared in 1689 and a second in 1693. A third edition of 1716 is listed in several bibliographies, but it is a ghost: the "2" in the date of this 1726 edition is often indistinct on the title-page, causing some to read it as "1716." VÃÂ¡zquez, a native of Puebla, was a professor of the "Mexican language" (i.e., Nahuatl) at the Royal College of San Juan and San Pedro; his local "take" is discernable here. VIÃâAZA 286. GARCIA ICAZBALCETA, LENGUAS 33. LEON-PORTILLA, TEPUZTLAHCUILOLLI 2786. MEDINA (PUEBLA) 361. PILLING PROOF-SHEETS 1412.
