About This Item

1764?-1769, Oaxaca, Manuscript.

35 gatherings with approximately fourteen folded folio leaves (12 1/4"" x 10") in each gathering which are now stored in an archival protective sleeve. All hand written generally on recto and verso, but in many different hands with seals stamped or embossed to documents. Now housed in a custom designed folio enclosure (15" x 12 1/2") along with the original velum.

This work details the agricultural, household and commercial operations, as well as the daily life, at the Hacienda. The manuscript includes business records, legal documents and a variety of other historical material. Originally housed in a vellum binding which has become loose, but enclosed within the custom enclosure for the document. This gives a glimpse of Oaxaca life at the end of New Spain's colonial reign in Mexico.


Worming throughout, sometimes heavily. The terminal pages have heavy chipping and wear at extremities affecting text, some pages damp-stained. Original vellum wormed at the spine center, soiled and worn else a good item housed in custom designed archival closure.
