Abstract

About four decades ago, the two modern editions of the Cancionero de obras de burlas (19OB), of Domínguez (1978) and Jauralde Pou-Bellón Cazabán (1974), finally condemned to its deserved obscurity Usoz y Río’s 1841 edition. Even though both his edition and his library on spiritual topics have an evident archaeological interest (Vilar), the Quaker sympathiser born in Spain presented an abbreviated version of this cancionero to prove that, by his lights, the obscene and decadent habits of the Spanish empire were built upon Catholicism. Thus, the first thing to point out is that scholars have only been able to read the complete 19OB since the late 20th century, which has made it impossible for us to understand in depth what we can consider to be the first catalogue of medieval and renaissance jibes and jests written in Spanish.
