About This Item

Mexico City: Antonio Vanegas Arroyo, [ca. 1900]. First Edition. Broadside. Near fine. José Guadalupe Posada. Halfsheet, approximately 11 3/4 x 8 inches, printed recto and verso. In Spanish. Woodcut illustration, 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, and ornamental border in recto. Toning, 3/4-inch marginal closed tear, not affecting text, else fine.

News halfsheet illustrated by José Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913), the immortal Mexican printmaker, at the press of celebrated Mexico City publisher Antonio Vanegas Arroyo (1850-1917). Guadalupe's wood engraving depicts the "horrible event" of the prior September at Ocotlán, in which the Virgin of Guadalupe came to the aid of a virtuous, long-battered woman whose husband had secretly sold her to a demon six years earlier, and whom the demon had now come to collect at a mountain monastery. Hearing her weeping and prayers, the Virgin assumed the woman's identity while she slept and presented herself to the demon, who, when he realized he had been tricked, let out a frightful roar. A striking piece, rare, and in excellent condition despite the extreme fragility of its paper.
