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 reknown 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 (Tragicomedy of Calisto and Melibea and the old prostitute Celestina) must be kept for specialists, because of its complexity.
