Very antique and beautiful work, El peregrino indiano is an epic poem from New Spain, rare due to the scarcity of copies.
Saavedra Guzmán was a Mexican historian and poet from the late 16th century. He travelled to Spain and wrote this work during the journey. We have no further news of him after that. He could speak Nahuatl (the language of the Aztecs), since he uses many words in this language within his work.
There are 3 copies of this edition at the National Library of Madrid, in the section of ‘Rare and Curious Books’. They belong to the same edition as this lot. All 4 have the same paging defects: 36 appears as 39, 149 appears as 143, 320 appears as 310, 333 appears as 321, 335 appears as 324, there is no 176 but 177 appears twice, and there is no 211, but 212 appears twice. Nevertheless, the work is complete. It contains 22 facsimile pages at the beginning and the end.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.A very nice cup but fractured during the trip!Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Tal y como hemos hablado en privado, realmente es una pena, esta preciosa copa se envió muy bien embalada y con muy buenas protecciones, yo misma lo hice a conciencia.
Si ha sido la aduana quien manipuló el paquete, realmente es una gran neglicencia por parte de ellos...
De todos modos, quiero comentar con la agencia de transporte esta incidencia, estamos en contacto Leonardo!!
