Edicto del Ilmº Señor Arzobispo de Mexico, para la publicacion del jubileo universal, que N. Santissimo Padre Clemente XIII .
(Mexico), Imprenta de la Bibliotheca Mexicana, 1760. - 4°, disbound. Woodcut initial letter. From the library of Sir Thomas Phillipps. (1 l.), 17 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this edict issued by Rubio y Salinas in August 1760. It summarizes the proclamation of Pope Clement XIII designating 1760 as a Jubilee Year, and the subsequent supporting proclamation issued by Charles III of Spain. The faithful are instructed in the proper ways of observing the Jubilee Year and the terms under which indulgences will be granted.Rubio y Salinas (1702-1765) was born in Spain and held a variety of church posts before being appointed archbishop of Mexico in 1747, a post he held until his death.@Provenance: Sir Thomas Phillipps, 1st Baronet (1792-1872) was an English antiquary and book collector who amassed the largest collection of manuscript material in the 19th century, due to his severe condition of bibliomania. He was an illegitimate son of a textile manufacturer and inherited a substantial estate, which he spent almost entirely on vellum manuscripts, and, when out of funds, borrowed heavily to buy manuscripts, thereby putting his family deep into debt. Philipps began his collecting while still at Rugby and continued at Oxford. Eventually he acquired some 40,000 printed books and 60,000 manuscripts, arguably the largest collection a single individual has created, and coined the term "vello-maniac" to describe his obsession. A.N.L. Munby notes that he spent perhaps between two hundred thousand and a quarter of a million pounds, altogether four or five thousand pounds a year, while accessions came in at the rate of forty or fifty a week. He was an assiduous cataloguer who established the Middle Hill Press (named after his country seat at Broadway, Worcestershire) in 1822 not only to record his book holdings but also to publish his findings in English topography and genealogy. Ultimately, the dispersal of his collection took over 100 years. A five-volume history of the collection and its dispersal, Phillipps Studies, by A. N. L. Munby was published between 1951 and 1960.*** León, @Bibliografía mexicana del s. XVIII 662: same collation. Medina, @México 4662: [calling for port.?]. Beristain de Souza (1947) VII, 2731.
