The Benson Collection offers a depth of sources to examine the creative process. A novel by Ignacio Manuel Altamirano may be studied through the author's bound holograph manuscript (1886-1888) and the work's elaborately bound first edition, El zarco (episodios de la vida mexicana en 1861-1863): Novela póstuma, drawings by Antonio Utrillo and engravings by D. J. Thomas (Mexico: J. Ballesca y Ca., sucesor, 1901).
