FERNANDEZ-DE-ZAMORA, Rosa-María. Academic books in New Spain. Rev. iberoam. educ. super [online]. 2021, vol.12, n.34, pp.222-238.  Epub Aug 30, 2021. ISSN 2007-2872.

Much could be written about the books that were read for the academic activities of the Royal University of Mexico and other educational institutions such as the Colegio de Minería, the Academia de San Carlos and other schools among which those of the Jesuits stand out. However, in this article the authors wish to highlight the academic books printed in Europe as well as in Mexico that can be recognized as part of other discourses, because the way they are cited makes the task difficult. We have tried to identify titles and authors especially in the catalog of the National Library of Mexico because it is the institution that received the largest bibliographic heritage of the colonial period, but also in other libraries. The original spelling of the mentioned texts was respected and they are accompanied by illustrations of their covers.

Keywords : academic books; Real y Pontificia Universidad de México; university; textbooks in New Spain; Mexico.
