A propos de cet article

Sixteenmo (13 x 8.5 cm), pp 327, plus 11 plates (3 hand-colored fashion-related and 1 ex-libris plate printed in blue ink).The first of this beautifully printed annual keepsake or almanac for young Mexican women, issued by the prolific publisher Mariano Galván. The fine engraved plates include three hand-colored fashion plates, a detailed view of the sanctuary of Guadalupe, allegorical representations of the four seasons and the new year, and a view of the gruta or caverns at Cacahuamilpa in Guerrero. Text chapters describe the caverns at Cacahuamilpa, the sanctuary of Guadalupe, flowers, the art of embroidery, and there is a narrative of travel to Toluca in central Mexico, "Viage al Nevado de Toluca" by José Maria Heredia. Also poetry and drama ("El Visitador, año de 1567"), and the pages devoted to the almanac itself. Enrique Fernandez Ledesma described this luxurious little book as a "joya bibliográfica.un lujosísimo tomo breve pimpant, de encuadernación opulenta, de cortes finamente dorados y de esmeradísima y elegante impresión.Es, en verdad, cautivador el volumen" (Historia Critica de la Tipografia en la Ciudad de Mexico). All editions of this almanac for señoritas mexicanas are rare. WorldCat locates only three copies of the present first year: the Newberry Library, El Colegio de Mexico and Univ. de Monterrey. Contemporary polished black ornately stamped calf, spine elaborately and beautifully decorated in gilt, a.e.g. All plates with original tissue-guards intact. Neat old private Mexican booklabel on front pastedown. Corners show a bit of wear, but a fine copy, the binding bright and internally pristine. N° de réf. du libraire 7125
