About this Item

First edition. Born in 1816 in the small town of Tizayuca in what is now the state of Hidalgo, Rodriguez Galvan is widely credited with being the initiator of the Romantic movement in Mexico. He wrote novels, poetry, plays, and was the editor of several periodicals, most especially Calendario de las Se?oritas Mexicanas and A?o Nuevo, El Recreo de las Familias. He died of yellow fever in Havana in 1842 at the age of 27 while en route to South America on a diplomatic mission. A few of the poems in vol. I were penned in => Havana before his death. These volumes offer his "Composiciones l?ricas originales" in vol. I and "Composiciones dram?ticas originales" in vol. II. The frontispiece is a fine lithographic portrait of Don Ignacio, in Romantic style of course; there is a liberal use of handsome tailpieces. The whole was compiled and edited by the author's brother Antonio. => This first edition is uncommon in our experience as dealers in Mexicana. Provenance: Masonic stamp, "Porfirio del Rio" on title-page; inscription to fly-leaf of A. Quijano, 1916. Folio (24 cm; ). 2 vols. in 1. I: [4] ff., frontis., 311, [1 (blank)] pp., [1] f.
