Chapter Summary

The Castilian printer and bookseller Agustin de Paz was jailed in Santiago de Compostela in 1557 for printing counterfeit bullas. Agustín de Paz and Beatriz Pacheco's store was the main bookshop operating between 1554 and 1563 in the city of Santiago, and it was probably also a distribution channel for the whole of Santiago's archbishopric. The inventory of Beatriz Pacheco's bookshop is highly informative about many aspects of the sixteenth-century Spanish book trade and offers a better picture of its market than extant books do. The inventory of Pacheco's bookshop and other personal possessions was taken on 4 August 1563. Unfortunately, the document with the appraisal of the assets of her bookshop, noted for the first time by Atanasio López in 1934, is lost. Lack of knowledge of the editions of the works in Pacheco's bookshop limits enormously the understanding of her book inventory's meaning.
