Moreno, Jose Manuel.  Broadside, begins: Tabla de las fiestas movibles. Puebla: Impressa en la Imprenta de Christoval de Ortega, 1761. Folio (38.5 cm, 15.25"). [1] p.
$550.00

Bachiller Moreno, a citizen of Veracruz, compiled this chart of the moveable feasts of the Catholic Church for the years 1761 through 1816 and had it printed in Puebla, with a very handsome ornamental border, by the son of the founders of the Ortega printing dynasty. => It represents a very uncommon type of job printing, done as it was for a private individual rather than a guild or government entity.
        The best account of the Ortega family and its typographic history is in Marina Garone Gavier's work cited below.
        Unrecorded in the bibliographic record: Not in NUC, WorldCat, CCILA, Medina, Gavito, etc.

Not in Medina, Puebla; not in Gavito, Adiciones a la Imprenta en la Puebla. Marina Garone Gavier, Historia de la imprenta y tipografia colonial en Puebla de los Angeles (1642–1821), pp. 306–73. Removed from a bound volume. A tear into the text repaired from the rear without loss. Very good.  (41013)   Please RESHELVE This.
