One of the earliest works in Spanish on educating those suffering
full or partial loss of hearing and/or speech. The author was a Jesuit and a
prolific writer on topics of language, education, and even travel. This treatise
is extensive, comprehensive for its day, and illustrated witha
plate of the Spanish hand alphabet in
use at the time. The work was translated into French in 1870s but apparently
