Description

Mexico : Imprenta de el real, y mas Antiguo Colegio de S. Ildefonso, 1766.

Quiroga was a Jesuit, procurator of his order, and a native of Spain who served in Mexico from some time in the late 17th-century until his death at Tepozotlan in 1732. The first edition of this seems to have been in Mexico City in 1737. In addition to the novena, [devotion consisting of prayer often said on nine successive days], the work has a full-page woodcut of Christ on the Cross and two medieval crenelated cities in the background.
