Letter from Jacinto Hernández, a book trader, to Thomás Fabián Savignoni, who is in charge of the trading house of Juan Bautista Fabián´s widow.
The author writes to Thomas Fabián Savignoni, who is in charge of the trading house of Juan Bautista Fabián´s widow, regarding a shipment of books and prayer cards he has already received and in which some books are missing. He needs information about which volumes have been impounded by the Holy Office to ask his man in Venice for the discount in the price of the books missing.
The trial against Jacinto Hernández occurred between 1798 and 1803 for forbidden books. He was suspected of binding and selling this type of books. The trial was suspended despite the fact that some dubious copies were found. The set of letters is fundamentally about books and prayer cards delivery. Some of the prayer cards were forbidden because they contained either the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which was banned, the Holy Spirit in a human form, or the image of a naked grown up Jesus child.
