An extract of the second volume of Spanish jurist Solorzano Pereira's famous work Disputationum de Indiarum Jure on law in the Spanish colonies in America, published in the same year.

The eight preliminary pages contain an annotated dedicatory letter to King Philip IV and three poems, while the first thirty numbered pages contain the annotated dedicatory letters (one to King Philip IV and one to Gaspar de Guzman, Count of Olivares & Duke of Sanlucar) and annotated note to the reader from the Disputationum. The letters and note to the reader are printed in two columns, with the text itself on the left and extensive notes on the right. A very good copy, with only a tear in the border of one leaf, not affecting the text. An extract of an influential work on the law in the Spanish colonies in America.
