Description

A wonderful portfolio of chromolithographs depicting the Mexican railway with thundering locomotives crossing bridges and going through rain forests. Spain's possessions in the New World had gradually been adapting to the scientific revolution of the late 17h century and 18th century in Europe, coming under the influence of French political and scientific concepts. With a Valois King on the Spanish throne, these filtered through to the New World, and foreign visitors arrived, opening an area which had been isolated from other nations for two centuries.

The art of lithography was adopted and developed in Mexico after Sennefelder's famous publication on the subject in Germany which was universally influential. This art became a symbol of national pride and prestige as did new Mexican urban architecture and systems of transport, this work combines the two new developments.

Red pictorial cloth folio with gilt lettering.

Text in both English and Spanish.

25 chromolithographed plates, including title, double page map.
