Early Mexican Printers free pdf Excerpt from Early Mexican Printers: A Letter My dear Dr. Greek, - The accompanying descriptions of eighteen books, printed in British America in the seventeenth century, which are not mentioned in your Lists nor in that of Mr. Paine, are taken from copies in the John Carter Brown Library or in the Harris Collection of American Poetry in the Brown University Library. The earliest American imprint, - using the word in its more general sense, - in Mr. Brown's library is the Doctrine Breve of 1543-44, a religious manual prepared by Bishop Zumdrraga, the first official head of the church in Mexico, "in plain language for the common people." The imprint of this volume reads: Impssa 3 la misma ciudad dMexico por su mSLdado ya su oosta. A o d' M. dxliij- "printed in Mexico by direction and at the expense of Bishop Zumdrraga in 1543." This statement on the title is supplemented by the colophon, which says that the work was completed June 14, 1544: Acabo se de imprimir a. xiiij. dias del mes de Junio: del aflo de. M.d. quarg tay qtro aflos. The volume consists of eighty-four small quarto leaves, printed in gothic type. S! Garcia Icazbalceta, in his admirable Bihliografta Mexicana del Siglo xviy printed in Mexico in 1886, mentions three earlier American imprints, of which there is reason to suppose that copies are still in existence. The earliest of these was printed in Mexico in 1539, according to a very circumstantial description of the book in the wellknown volume of Cartas de Indias, issued by the Spanish Government, from the office of the Ministerio de Fomento, in 1877, page 787. Unfortunately, the whereabouts of an original copy from which this description could have been taken, has been as yet successfully concealed or forgotten. Of the next earliest surviving product of the Mexican press, two leaves are all that are known. These clearly formed the end, the last three pages, of a Manual de AduUos printed in 1540.
