Octavo, 4 vols. in 2, pp ; 213; 206; 245, blank, III. [Palau 89067] All the plates are hors-texte (and are indeed very nice lithographs, the creator of which is not identified, but they look very much like Iriarte's work and I believe are the same ones that were used in the Blanquel printing of 1865 and probably earlier: they have the feel of 1840's). The first two editions were incomplete, lacking the 4th volume: this is the 9th edition, according to Palau, incorrectly identified as the second edition on the title page. The author, Fernandez de Lizardi (1776 - 1827) styled himself El Pensador Mexicano, and has been called the Mexican Voltaire or Cervantes (Sabin) or Quevedo (Beristain de Souza). His career spanned the turbulant years of the last years of the Viceroyalty, the Mexican War of Independence (1810 - 21), the reign of Emperor Iturbide, and the first republican government. His dedication to the cause of Mexican independence and liberal views kept him at odds with these successive governments, and he was a prolific founder and editor of newspapers during these years. His open criticism of the Viceroy Venegas landed him in jail for a time. He worked in almost all genres, but his novel El Periquillo Sarniento (the Mangy Parrot), was his lasting contribution. It is thought to be the first Latin American novel. This printing is from a French publisher in Mexico City, Simon Blanquel, who had been in the city for some years before the arrival of Maximilian in 1864: perhaps his nationality favored his business. (Sabin 41664: Palau 89065: Beristain III:1695) Nineteenth century editions of this Mexican classic are very scarce on the market, in my experience.: no auction records of any early edition, and only a single Goodspeed catalog listing for 1920 an edition. Original blind-stamped pebbled cloth binding, with morocco spine, raised bands, florons, gilt title material. Very good, well-illustrated set. N° de réf. du libraire 7027
