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").  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.
