Nicholas Fernandez de Moratin: Arte de Putear
Scope and Contents
A seventy-six page poetic work with 23-26 lines per page. At the back of the volume is a wrapper of 'papel sellado' dated 1822. The date of the wrapper suggests that the manuscript was one of the papers used by the editor of Moratin's Obras postumas (Barcelona, 1821), although it does not appear in that edition, and is apparently unpublished.
- Creation: 1750 (Circa)
