Compendio de rhetorica compuesto por el M. R. P. Mayol Cathedratico de la Universidad de Palma. Para el uso de Lorenzo Pons. Año de 1805.
[Palma] []. 1805 - MS, small 8vo., pp. [2] 153. With integral decorative papers, as discussed below. Full-page ownership inscription within decorative cartouche to 2nd f.e.p. Bound in contemporary vellum, titled on spine. A manual of rhetoric, possibly as copied out professionally for the student Lorenzo Pons y Umbert, student at the Real Universidad Literaria of Palma. It is composed in question-and-answer form. The text is in a mixture of Castilian and Latin. It is very interesting that academic publishing (as against student lecture-copying) was still apparently being done in Palma at this date via manuscript . Francisco Mayol y Reure (d. 1821) was professor of rhetoric at the University of Palma and a Franciscan monk. He was also author of a printed work, 'Praeceptiones rhetoricae' (Palma 1794). According to Bover, he also wrote, in manuscript, a Mallorquin-language dictionary. An interesting feature of this manuscript is the integral use of green and white decorative pastepaper, a leaf of which is preceded at the front (and one followed at the back) by plain endpapers. The decorative side of the pastepaper faces outward in both cases. I think these may be the original covers, to which a vellum case binding (with endpapers) was subsequently attached. Joaquín María Bover de Rosselló, 'Biblioteca de escritores baleares', I (repr. Barcelona 1976), 482-3.
