Antique, printed in Valencia by Benito Monfort in 1781. Beautiful title page with medallion, where its author, Juan Luis Vives, is reproduced.

Vicent García Editores commemorates the five hundredth anniversary of the birth of the Valencian philosopher. Due to this, this work was chosen which translates into Castilian for the first time the original edited in Bruges in 1526 with the title De subventione pauperum (On assistance to the poor).

The introduction of this edition is important: It is most certainly a piece of work by Gregorio Mayans, and an opinion also shared by Luis Vives' biographer, Bonilla Sanmartín.

This assumption is corroborated by the works which at that time the learned of Oliva conducted, collecting all the work of Luis Vives, and that under his direction printed in the same printing house as Benito Monfort, in 1782; that is, a year after the Tratado del socorro de los pobres (On assistance to the poor).

Luis Vives achieved fame and received in recognition for this essay a silver cup from the Bruges burgomasters. He develops an exalted fraternal spirit which contrasts with his social ideas. He defends the quote of Saint Paul, according to which: "to give is better than to receive".
