Descripción

Three volumes, thick octavos (10 x 7.5 in), pp 636, 652, 754; with profusion of b/w, full-page plates of many locations described which were not in the original 1899 - 1903 edition. This edition is in fact a facsimile of the first, limited to 2000 copies. Marroqui (1824 - 1898), a doctor by profession, worked on the book for 20 years, but died the year before it was given to the press. The first two volumes were printed, when a fire at the printer's destroyed the print run and the original manuscript. Three copies survived, however, and the rought draft of the third volume, from which the work was finally brought to light. This may explain the rarity of the work, which has not appreared at auction in 50 years or more. Palau (152976) notes that it is "obra curiosa, trabajada sobre documentos hoy totalmente perdidos." An affectionate biography of Marroqui, by the noted chronicler of Mexico City, Luis Gonzalez Obregon, is appended to this second edition. Nicely bound in decorative brown boards and title and other designs in gilt, with good paper -- a handsome production. A very nice, clean set. Fine. N° de ref. de la librería 7249
