Por la religion de Santo Domingo de la Provincia de Filipinas, Colegio de Santo Tomas, y Universidad de la Ciudad de Manila.

Con el Colegio de San Ignacio de la Compañia de Iesus de la dicha Ciudad, y con el Seminario de San Ioseph. [Manila? : s.n., circa 1655]. Folio, modern half vellum over boards, spine with title lettered in ink; printed on rice paper; title page with woodcut of Madonna and Child, contemporary ownership inscription of the Universidad Colegio, ff 23; signed at the foot of last page by the Licenciado Doctor Paulo de Victoria.

Throughout the seventeenth century and up to the beginning of the twentieth century there were continuing disputes between the Dominicans and the Jesuits about the right to award degrees. The Colegio became a university in 1645. This item was a salvo fired by the Dominicans, despite the 1652 ruling by the Audiencia in Manila that both institutions were allowed to grant degrees.

This appears to be the only known copy; we can find no bibliographical reference, nor any institutional or sale record.
