A propos de cet article

Large folio (44 x 33 cm), pp [2], 153, with lithograph titlepage and 38 full-page lithographed plates. The lithographs are by Hernadez and Iriarte; several of the plates are tinted, one is hand-colored. The index calls for 37, but the final plate noted, of Maximilian and his two generals Miramon and Mejia, has been made into two plates, so that there are 38 plates as noted. An elaborate 19th-century Mexican lithographic book, issued on a grand scale with large lithographs after drawings by Primitivo Miranda, depicting a pantheon of martyrs of the Mexican nation. Riva Palacio and Payno were noted intellectuals and with this book they clearly sought to immortalize those who had sacrificed their lives for the nation, thus the title LIBRO ROJO or Red Book, signifying the bloodshed throughout Mexican history. Interestingly, many of the plates depict horrors inflicted either by Spaniards or by the Mexican Inquisition. Depicted here are Moctezuma II, Cuauhtemoc, Martin Cortez, Pedro de Alvarado, la familia Carabajal, la familia Dongo, Hidalgo, Allende, Morelos, Guerrero, Los Martires de Tacubaya and Maximilian. The plate titled "La Peste (1577)" is partially colored and depicts a country village in Mexico affected by the plague. A rare complete copy of this unusual lithographic book, it has only appeared twice at auction in the last 50 or so years. Original publisher's orange boards with 1/4 leather spine.
