About this Item

Thick Large Octavo. 672 pages, index, frontispiece, illustrations, plates, nice color folded map with one small closed edge tear to fold. Ober who traveled over 10,000 miles throughout Mexico (over 1,000 into the deep mountainous communities), met with Gen. Crook and discussed the Apaches on Sonora (just as John W. Kitchens notes in the Journal of Inter-American Studies that this is the earliest travel book to Mexico that deals with the rurales and it was soon an area of study by subsequent ethnographers). Since Ober was a serious ornithological scholar, it is not strange that he named a number of species especially of hawks. Many consider his astute observations on life in Mexico essential for understanding the diverse life and culture of Mexico in terms of its culture and political life. Bound in goldenrod pictorial cloth lettered and decorated in black and gilt pictorial spine, minor wear to corners, some finger soiling, new endpapers (possibly recased as it has not been rebacked).
