Urquiola, Luis.  Sagrada columna de España ... de la milagrosa venida de la Reyna de los Angeles María Santissima, viviendo aun en carne mortal, a la dichosa ciudad de Zaragoza. Zaragoza: por los herederos de Diego Larumbe, 1724. Small 4to. [28] ff., 416 pp., [8] ff.
$450.00

Nuestra Señora del Pilar is the patroness of Spain and the Spanish world. Tradition hold that in January, 40 AD, in the pagan land that is now Zaragoza, the Apostle James the Great was preaching and attempting to convert souls to Christ, but was discouraged by the poor results. Mary (who was still alive and living in Ephesus or Jerusalem) appeared to him via bilocation on a pillar and in the company of Angels and left him the pillar and a statue of herself and instructions to build a chapel on the spot where she had appeared.
        This work is a documentary history of the event and is an important work in the canon of Mariology.
        Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, and CCPB find only one reported copy in the U.S., none in Mexico, none in Britain, as is to be expected more than a dozen in Spain.
