Description: Benavides, Alonso de. THE MEMORIAL OF FRAY ALONSO DE BENAVIDES 1630. Chicago, 1916. 9" x 6.25". xiii, 309 pp. With forty-four photogravure illustrations. In publisher's 1/2 brown over tan cloth, top edge gilt, , some slight toning to spine. Contents clean, a Very Good example. *********************************** #151 from an edition limited to 300 copies. This important work, edited by Mrs. Edward Ayer, translates the memorial of Franciscan Alonso Benavides, the best account of early 17th-century New Mexico. Extensive notes by Charles F. Lummis and Frederick Webb Hodge supplement the narrative. Of the greatest interest, however, are the extraordinary gravure illustrations from photographs by Adam Clark Vroman and Charles F. Lummis. These show Indian sites and churches - or ruins of churches - in New Mexico, as well as New Mexico landscape. Beautifully printed by the firm of John Andrew & Son of Chicago, they are an overlooked photographic treasure trove from two notable 20th-century photographers of New Mexico. GRAFF 250.
