A propos de cet article

Folio, 12.5 x 9.25 in, pp [x], viii, [232]; 2 folding tables, with very large map of Mexico City in 1867, mounted on linen panels, measuring 30 x 40 in. and housed in a large pocket in the back. [Sabin 57643 for the original] Limited to 500 copies, this facsimile, though elaborately printed and bound, was not offered for sale but given out as a gift by an important architectural firm in Mexico City: this copy is inscribed to Siffrein Vass, the president of Ford Motors in Mexico, and numbered. Orozco y Berra (1816 - 81) was a topographical engineer by profession, but was also an avid historiographer, especially of the colonial period of Mexico; numerous books came from his pen. The text of this book, in addition to the hydrological information, includes 125 "parroquias, iglesias y establecimientos publicos" described in some detail with their history, and all keyed and identified on the large map. It was another effort to draw up plans for a system of levees or dikes to protect Mexico City, which was periodically inundated due to its location in the middle of lake Texcoco. The original has not appeared at auction for many years. Bound in a deluxe binding of crimson morocco, and gilt title material and decorations both on spine and front cover. Fine copy.
