- Diccionario De Cocina, ó El Nuevo Cocinero Mexicano En Forma De Diccionario, que contiene todos los procedimientos empleados en la alta, mediana y pequeña cocina, la lista normal de los platillos que deben componer las distintas comidas, con que variedad de nombres se hacen en el dia, el método de aderezar los platos y de disponer los diferentes servicios de una mesa. Y lo mas selecto de las artes del pastelero, del bizcochero, del confitero, del destilador, y del nevero, con todo lo relativo a la repostería by Mariano Galván Rivera (1845).
One of relatively few Mexican cookbooks with a lengthy publication history, this work was initially published in 1831 as El cocinero mexicano, ó, Coleccion de las mejores recetas para guisar al estilo americano : y de las mas selectas segun el metodo de las cocinas española, italiana, francesa e inglesa. Our newly acquired copy is from the extensively re-organized and re-titled 1845 edition printed in Mexico City. In future, we hope to also acquire examples of later editions to support study of the evolution of Mexican cooking over the course of the eventful 19th century.
- History of Mexico: collected from Spanish and Mexican historians, from manuscripts and ancient paintings of the Indians, illustrated by charts and other copper plates ; to which are added, critical dissertations on the land, the animals, and inhabitants by Abbé D. Francesco Saverio Clavigero. Translated by Charles Cullen (1787).
This is the first English edition of Clavigero’s Storia Antica del Messico. Mexican-born Jesuit Francesco Saverio Clavigero was expelled from Mexico with the rest of his order in 1767 and wrote most of his treatises in Italy, based on notes and recollections of manuscripts he studied in Mexico as well as research in Italian archives. The first Spanish edition of this work did not appear until 1826. In addition to text, notably sympathetic to the indigenous peoples peoples of Mexico, the History includes two oversized, folding maps engraved by T. Conder, a geneaological chart showing the descent of Mexican Kings from the 13th century, and numerous engravings depicting artifacts, costumes, wildlife, and architecture in Mexico.
