Chromolithographs finished with hand color. A few mended marginal splits, mat burn to outer margins, else excellent condition. Two of the visually richest images of Cuba printed in the 19th century. Both works are bordered by numerous illustrations of scenes from daily life, of historic events and important structures. These were based on the very important early views produced in Cuba by its first lithographer, F. Mialhe. So influential were these views throughout the Americas and Europe that Emilio Cueto asserts: ¿THE image which the enlightened public of the nineteenth century had of Cuba was the one conveyed by Mialhe¿--p. 6. Among the subjects of the illustrations are the cultivation of tobacco, a formal dance, a cock fight, a hurricane at its height, various regional domiciles, etc. The plan of Havana includes a view of the city from the harbor. The genesis of these works involved one of the most bizarre cases of graphic piracy known. May, a Havana merchant, sent without authorization a number of Mialhe¿s original views to Germany to be re-lithographed. These were then sent back to Cuba, where May sold them at a price that undercut Mialhe¿s. Although Mialhe brought suit, the case was settled to May¿s advantage because Mialhe failed to follow the exact procedures of the then newly enacted copyright laws. These particular works are, however, more ¿original¿ than May¿s other piracies of Mialhe because Mialhe never prepared a map. The views surrounding the map, however, were taken directly from Mialhe. Nevertheless, on these works are some of the most important, early printed images produced in Cuba. E. Cueto, Mialhe¿s Colonial Cuba, pp. 4-6, 127; E. Cueto, Cuba in Old Maps, nos. 82 & 199.
