Additional Details

Second edition of a catechism with Zapotec and Spanish text printed in double columns. The book's preliminaries are dated in Oaxaca in 1732. Medina discusses an alleged 1732 Oaxaca edition, but doubts its existence; no copies are presently known. Swann's 2014 Mathes sale included the only known complete copy of the 1766 edition, likely the true first. Medina, Puebla 956; Palau 137035; Sabin 40732.
