Guanajuato: Felix M. Conejo, 1862-1863. 56; 34; 16pp. Contemporary marble card wrappers, spine perished, front wrap lacking. Scattered, faint foxing; mild toning and dust soiling. Good plus. Item #4530

A group of three otherwise unknown novenas, produced in Guanajuato during the early 1860s. The printer, Felix Conejo, seems to have published mainly devotional works and government printing such as law and decrees, as well as a few newspapers from the mid-1840s to the late 1860s, though his recorded output was not abundant. The first, most extensive work, was authored by a local priest in Michoacan, Gabino Chavez, comprises a nine-day set of prayers for devotion to the Sacred Heart, with a classic woodcut of the burning heart wreathed in thorns on the title-page verso. The remaining two novenas are for San Felipe Neri and San Vicente de Paul. These latter two imprints are not recorded in OCLC; the first is recorded, but not located. Scarce, regional devotional printing of mid-19th-century Mexico.
