Praeses Aderit Joseph Maria a Castillo Urizar in Eodem Gymnasio Propius Philosophae Moderator

[Puebla]: T.F. Neve, 1859. [4] leaves. Contemporary red velvet boards, elaborately stamped in gilt. Gilt foil rubbed away in a few, small areas. Light wear at spine ends and corners. Internally clean. Very good. Item #4483

An attractive red velvet and gilt prize binding that was presented to Eduardo Carreto by the Colegio Nacional del Espiritu Santu in Puebla during the fall of 1859 for his achievements in Philosophy. Both front and rear boards contain rather elaborate folial ornaments surrounding a central image of scholarly papers and instruments scattered around a globe. The same image is repeated in print on the title page. The three other printed leaves bear the formal language that awards the academic achievements of Carreta. A very interesting and unusual example of a velvet Mexican prize binding.
