An interesting and seemingly quite useful manual that prints the regulations and tariffs on services rendered and fees charged by three groups of Mexican professionals. The first tract covers several types in the business of law, including lawyers, scribes, and proxies; the second covers mercantile brokers; the last covers business agents. The laws governing each group had been on the books for varying amounts of time when the present manual was published in 1881 -- the regulations for those plying their trade in the law had been on the books since 1837. Each tract has its own title page, with the whole being fronted by a collected half title, as issued. We locate only two copies, at the Harvard Law Library and the BNM.
