Houghton’s Primeros Libros

Jump to Comments

Prouisio[n]es cedulas instruciones desu Magestad, 1563. LMC5 N4205 563pThe Houghton Library recently digitized several books to be added to the digital library Los Primeros Libros de las Américas: A Digital Library of 16th Century Colonial Mexican Imprints. Starting in 1539 with the first book of the Americas, Breve y mas compediosa doctrina Cristiana en lengua Mexicana y castellana (of which no copies survive), Mexico had rich one hundred year printing history before the first book was printed in Colonial America. Based at Texas A&M University and with the collaboration of several Mexican and Texas libraries, the digital library aims to make more accessible these early printings of the New World.

Houghton contributions to the Primeros Libros digital library include:
