Huesca and Ballabriga, [Spain], 1709. Two-part manuscript lecture notes penned by a man named Bartolome Arino, concerning early philosophy, in particular dealing with the mind. 8vo. 165 pages in manuscript, plus title page, authorship inscriptions to front leaf dated 22 December 1709, and to verso of page 97 dated 28 October 1709. Index to final leaf. All text is in Latin. Hand-stitched soft vellum binding with one of two leather ties remaining, manuscript title to spine "Logica de Pinelo" and manuscript annotations to verso. Volume measures approximately 20,5 x 15,5 cm. Age-toning to vellum, occasional loss of letters to marginal annotations though unobtrusive to primary text, otherwise in very good condition, internally clean and bright, a beautiful and fascinating eighteenth century study in a neat hand. The inscription to the volume's spine suggests that the present work examines, at least in part, the works of Antonio de León Pinelo (1589-1660). This only stands to reason, as Pinelo was a researcher and attorney of the Council of the Indies, and in that role, was instrumental in forming the laws of Spain's influence over the South American colonies only fifty years earlier. Made at the dawn of the Enlightenment Era in Spain, the present volume is a fine example of the intellectual movement for exchanging and debating of new social and moral ideals. Early eighteenth century beliefs and contemplation are presented herein, during a most fascinating era of science and philosophy, when the intellectuals were just beginning to challenge the monarchy, government, and the church.
