Two volumes, octavo, pp 380; 447. The first volume covers from 1828 to 1840, the second from 1840 to 1853. Prieto (1818 - 97) was a very important literary figure in Mexico almost throughout the 19th century. A staunch liberal, and in government positions whenever the liberals were in power, he served several administrations, incl. that of Juarez during the reign of Maximilian, which earned him great esttem. Novelist, poet, journalist - he performed all these roles, but his Memoires are of lasting value. His account of Mexico during these years is unmatched. His portraits of the players, both in politics and the arts, are brilliant and the best that we have of them. Though a liberal, his judgment was always fair as to the character of men. Some ink underlining in the indexes, some pencil underlining in text. This set is in excellent condition, bound in the publishers pebbled rust cloth with gilt titles, and the wrapper covers bound in, apparently by the publisher himself. The paper is very good, slightly coated. Near fine set. N° de réf. du libraire 7056
