        All eight publications are from the press of the heirs of Jose de Jauregui, which operated under the designation "Imprenta nueva madrileña" or in Latin "ex Typographia nova matritense," which, as these publications demonstrate, had secured at least some, if not all, of the printing work of the Augustinians, Carmelites, and Franciscans in the late 1780s.
        The frontispiece to no. 1 in this volume is an => unsigned, extremely well-done engraving entitled "Arbor Decem Mandatorum" (i.e., "Tree of the Ten Commandments"). The engraved plate in no. 5 is by Andrade, was created for Eguiara y Eguren's Bibliotheca Mexicana press, and is a => portrait of St. Nicholas Tolentine. And the unsigned woodcut in no. 8 is of => Christ holding an orb.
        Provenance: the 1785 Augustinian Kalendarium has this note: "Para el M.R.P. Fr. Andres de la S[anti]s[i]ma Triidad en N[uestr]a S[eno]ra del Carmen. 5 Aug. 86."
        => None of the titles were found in NUC or WorldCat.
