Sumario de las Indulgencias y gracias asi perpetuas como temporalis, que... Clemente Decimo Tercio concedio a la Congregacion de Nuestra Senora de Balvanera, fundada con autoridad ordinaria en la capilla del titular de la misma Senora en la Iglesia del Conv
1777. Mexico. Lic. D. Joseph de Jauregui. Folio, (305 x 215 mm). 2 ff. Unbound. Uncut, some edges chipped but in no case affecting text, overall very god.- First edition apparently, a beautiful Mexican impression; it is illustrated with a portrait of the Virgin of Balvanera by Salsedo –one of the earliest iconographic representations of the Virgin of Valvanera printed in Mexico- flanked by two putti sitting on an Eagle who in turn is stepping on a snake –the arms of Mexico, making reference of the founding of Mexico City by the Aztecs- on the title page, all surrounded by a woodcut frame. The text concerns the indulgences granted –and in which cases they are granted- by His Holiness Clement XIII (1758-69). The rarity appears to be considerable, only one copy recorded in OCLC, at the University of Dayton Library. Palau; 55602.
