Mexico: Arsacio Vanegas Arroyo, 1943. Folio. Original printed red wrappers. Spine mostly perished, light wear and soiling. Printed on multi- colored sheets. Very good. Thirty-six leaves of woodcut illustrations, issued in conjunction with the famous Mexican artist Posada's first major exhibition, organized by Fernando Gambio at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. The introduction states: "On the occasion of this first exhibition of his gigantic labor and since we made available to the organizers the original plates - preserved by my father, Blas, in honor of Posadas memory - from which were printed the copies now at the Palacio de Bellas Artes, I publish this small edition in modest homage to the great Jose Guadalupe Posada, with the desire of extoling [sic] him and of cooperating in the success of his exposition." It is signed by Arascio Vanegas Arroyo, grandson of Antonio Vanegas Arroyo, Posada's original publisher.
