Additional Details

An unusual printed family history, in one of two editions printed in 1714 from different settings of type. Swann sold an example of the other printing on 27 September 2018, lot 481. In the other printing, the woodcut "Al Rey" was in slightly larger letters, and it read "Nuestro Senor en el real" rather than "Nuestro Señor en su real." The other printing repeated the leaf number 28, and this one repeats number 27. Not in Medina or Palau, two copies copy in OCLC (at John Carter Brown Library and Indiana University).
