Edition Notes

Engraved title page with illustrations of the Virgin and Child (a modified representation of the Virgin of the Seventh Seal), cherubim, two female saints (representing Faith and Divine Grace), the Holy Spirit, the Sacred Heart, and what appears to be either a colla (an Inca princess) or ñusta (noblewoman), and the Devil. The Virgin, sustained and flanked by cherubim, is elevated over a global representation of the Earth, showing South America and Peru. The Devil, standing on a rock, symbolic of a huaca or sacred space, if not divinity, in Andean cosmology, and the colla or ñusta appear to be engaged in conversation.

Imprint from colophon.
