• April 6, 2006: We have transcribed the first 25 manuscript bundles of the Epistolary of Pedro de Santacilia y Pax, an impressive historical document ranging over a multitude of topics from the middle of the seventeenth century. To date we have transcribed the exact total of 4,980 letters. There are approximately 2,800 letters remaining to be transcribed. We will soon be able to publish the first part.

• March 7, 2006: The latest title in the series “Medio Maravedí” is now available in bookstores. Emilio Blanco has published Centellas, a collection of political aphorisms by Joaquín Setanti (1540-1617), with an insightful introduction on the history of the aphorism.

• February 14, 2006: We inaugurated the “House of Chinese Poetry”. We are beginning to furnish it with our translations.

The introductory study and annotation of the edition are by Antonio Bernat Vistarini and John T. Cull. Daniela Capra has translated the text into Italian and is responsible for an analysis of the language of the work. Soon another version of this work will appear – only in Spanish – in the collection "Medio Maravedí". And we are also preparing a web version for our pages of this curious collection of questions and answers in the Aristotelian tradition.

• December 15, 2005: We published the first volume of the collection Treasures of Kalocsa: the Psalterium MS 382. It is a delicately illuminated manuscript, dated in Prague, from the times of Sigismund of Luxembourg (ca. 1431).
