One of the most important editions of Tragicomedia, La Celestina en 21 actos, is the Valencian work from 1514, carefully printed, and due to the fact that it incorporates a set of prints which are worth a careful study by one of the most specialists in Fernando de Rojas, Joseph T. Snow.

It is a program (scheme), following the words of the renowned illustrative author from La Puebla de Montalbán (Toledo) which can be observed in this copy which replicates the only known copy in the world.

The original text of this book and its typescript of the first editions of the Comedia and later of the Tragicomedia de Calisto y Melibea must be kept for specialists, because of its complexity.

We have 1 facsimile edition of the manuscript "Tragicomedy of Calisto and Melibea and the Old Prostitute Celestina": Tragicomedia de Calisto y Melibea facsimile edition, published by Vicent Garcia Editores, 2000

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
