     This vibrant imprint is a listing and summary of the indulgences granted to the Cofradia de Nuestra Señora de los Dolores originally by Paul V and confirmed by Innocent IX, the latter of whom was pope only for two months in late 1692. The imprint is undated, but the printer in Puebla at the time was Diego Fernández de Leon. In Mexico Our Lady of Sorrows, Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, is celebrated with processions, masses, and altars on the final Friday of Lent. The Virgin is shown with the customary iconography, widow's veils, her hands are clasped in an attitude of prayer, and seven swords penetrate her heart. ($200-400)
