Mexican pamphlets, broadsides, and other printed materials that cover a wide range of topics, including politics, religion,
social issues, and commerce, primarily from the 18th and 19th centuries. Most of these ephemeral items were printed in Mexico
City and, thus, they tend to present a view of Mexican reality as seen from the capital. Included is material on political
polemics and church-state relations, devotional booklets, such as novenas, catechisms, and calendars, and items concerning
the Virgin of Guadalupe, many of which are illustrated with engravings or lithographs. Among the works of particular significance
are several by Carlos Maria de Bustamante and other written as answers to the "Pensador Mexicano" (J.J. Fernandez de Lizardi).
