As director of this series, it is my pleasure to announce the creation of a new series of early modern Spanish literary texts, titled "Letras áureas" and published by the press "Agilice Digital" (http://www.agilicedigital.com/31-letras-aureas), a spin-off from the University of Valladolid (Spain). The objective of this series is to publish critical and annotated editions of Spanish literary texts of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries that are not easily available and that have a significant interest to scholars of this era, with particular attention to works that have been left outside the canon. The series invites scholars interested in publishing a critical edition of an early modern Spanish text to submit their proposals via email to the director of the series, Alejandro García-Reidy (agarci07@syr.edu), Assistant Professor of Spanish at Syracuse University. Submissions are now open to scholars. All manuscripts will have to pass a peer-review process in order to be considered for publication.

The objective is to publish three volumes per year. A year after the print edition is published, each text will be reprinted as a digital edition. The first volume of this series, aready available, is a critical edition by Prof. Javier Blasco of the first Spanish translation of Ovid's Ars Amandi, done by fray Melchor de la Serna towards 1580 (http://www.agilicedigital.com/inicio/92-arte-de-amor.html).
