TELLING TIME IN THE SPANISH GOLDEN AGE
UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT

Unpublished, illustrated Spanish manuscript on the construction and use of sundials written at the Convento de San Francisco in Marbella in 1610. This handbook on Reloxes, apparently the work of a certain cleric Bartolome Gutierrez, who signed two sections at the rear of the volume (ff. 234 & 236), represents a more practical approach to gnomonics than is usually encountered in this period.
