A collection of Mexican poetry from the eighteenth century to the (then) present day, published to celebrate the Fiesta de Raza (The Day of Race) which remembers the discovery of America by Columbus in 1492. The inscription in the book is from 1928, which was the year the fiesta was first officially recognised.
This copy is in very good condition. The pages are clean and the binding is tight. There is some light rubbing to the edges but otherwise the leather is in good order too.
