De lingua Othomitorum dissertatio, autore Emmanuele Naxera
Philadelphia: ex prelis James Kay, jun. ac fratris 4to (27 cm; 10.5"). [1] f. 48 pp.. 1835 Father Najera (1803?-53) was a native of Mexico, a member of the Zacatecas Literary Academy, and a highly respected self-taught linguist, who while in political exile in Philadelphia in the 1830s presented this study of the Otomi language on 6 March 1835 before the membership of the American Philosophical Society. => With this publication, Najera became the first person to publish a study in the U.S. of any Mexican indigenous language. This edition is reprinted from the Transactions of the American Philosophical Society ("Ex quinto tomo novae seriei Actorum Societatis philosophiae americanae decerpta"). Provenance: Bookplate and small stamp of the Library of the Supreme Council, 33o, A.A.S.R., Southern Jurisdiction, U.S.A.

Front cover expertly reattached using Japanese long-fiber method, volume sound as well as handsome. Small stamp as above, on title-page and in one other place, with typical pencilling to former; scattered foxing. A very good copy.
