In 1681 polymath and writer Don Carlos de Sigüenza y Góngora , one of the first great "intellectuals" born in the New World, published Libra astronomica y philosophica in Mexico City. This may be the first scientific book written by a native Latin American published in the Western Hemisphere.
In 1690 Sigüenza y Góngora published another edition of Libra astronomica y philosophica also in Mexico City. This was the last word in a controversy between Sigüenza and the Jesuit priest and astronomer Eusebio Kino over Sigüenza's scientific explanation of comets.
