Quarto, title-page, pp lxxix, vii, 269. [Palau 251938: Sabin 56260] Laws relating to the practice of mining in New Spain (Mexico), prepared by, or most likely for, Josef de Galvez, whose name does not appear on the title page, but does on the final page. First published in Madrid in a folio edition in 1783, then in Lima, in folio, in 1785: then this quarto edition was published the year later; it was republished as late as 1833 in Chile. This celebrated and comprehensive code was drawn up by the Mexican mining court in consultation with the Spanish crown, and served as the basis of the mining law of most Spanish-American countries until the late nineteenth century; it became law also in both Peru and the Río de la Plata viceroyalty in 1794. Galvez, a lawyer by profession, was an important royal official (Visitador), of the highest rank, who spent the years of 1765 - 71 in Mexico . He sponsored the settlement of California and generally reformed Mexican finances and civil service under the new Bourbon dispensation. (He suffered from mental illness and apparently ended his own life.) He was created the Marques de Sonora for his valuable services to the crown, among which may be numbered this digest of mining laws, of which Sabin says it is "a rare and valuable compendium of the old mining laws and mineral customs." This printing house was an important one in colonial Lima; it was a royal orphanage whose members were trained in the trade of printing. Fine, fresh copy, with marbled edges and bound in contemporary vellum (ties missing). N° de réf. du libraire 6576
