Lárraga, Francisco de.  Promptuario de la theologia moral, muy vtil para todos los que se han de exponer de confessores, y para la debida administracion del santo sacramento de la penitencia. Zaragoza: Por los herederos de Manuel Roman, a costa de Antonio Rubio, 1725. 4to (20 cm; 8"). [6] ff., 488 pp. (lacks the index leaves at end).
$125.00

The first edition of this several times reprinted work on doctrinal theology, the sacraments, and Christian ethics, appeared in 1700. This edition is "Nuevamente reconocido, mejorado, corregido y añadido por su autor en esta vigesima impression." This seems to be the same edition printed in 1725 in Madrid at the "imprenta de los herederos de Antonio Gonçalez de Reyes" as it has exactly the same collation and pagination, just a different title-page and differing only in the imprint information.
        The title-page has a nice large woodcut of St. Anthony of Padua and the text, in double-column format, has a few interesting woodcut tail pieces.
        Not found via NUC, WorldCat, or CCPBE.

Not in Palau. Contemporary limp vellum, lacking the ties. Title-page with dark glue stain along inner edges. Some pages dog-eared. Some stray stains. Lacking the index leaves at end. Overall a decent copy.  (38397)   Please RESHELVE This.
