In 1813, the Argentine educator, historian and statesman G. Funes submitted a "Plan of Studies for the Main University of Cordoba" to the University. This plan relected the influence of the Enlightenment and, among other things, discussed the teaching of French (not a popular language in certain circles)! Around 1940, the National Library of Argentina reprinted the Plan and also issued this "index" (which is certainly not a catalogue) with about 350 entries under names, titles, and concepts appearing in the Plan, often with page references and/or comments. With a fragment of a letter from Funes to the Bishop of Cordoba and a bibliography on higher education in (Spanish) colonial America. Wrappers chipped, browned, covers detached. Coming unbound (sewing has separated).
