A collection of legislation establishing a system of low-interest loans for aldermen, mayors and the governors of military districts in Spain (and New Spain). This legislation has its roots in the "Mounts of Piety," a system of pawnbrokers run as a charity by the Catholic Church in Europe in the Late Middle Ages to offer low-interest loans to the needy. The regulations in the present volume offered low-interest loans from the state treasury secured against amounts intended to fund the borrower's pension.
