Scope and Contents Note

Lithographs, certificates, charts, posters, maps, plans, registers, and prints of various scenes and people comprise this collection of Genaro García. The materials are arranged by subject matter. The first series, Buildings, contains lithographs by Pedro Gualdi of famous buildings in Mexico City, as well as scenes of the Palafox seminary and the home of Benito Juárez. Certificates, the second series, is small, and contains certificates in French, Latin, and Spanish. Charts and tables comprise the third series, with examples of charts depicting the demographics, civic, and historical aspects of Mexico. Also included is a table detailing all the known countries of the world in 1829, their rulers, forms of government and religion, and economic status. The fourth series includes commemorative posters of significent events in Mexican history, such as the Revolution of 1815. Landscapes, the fifth series, is relatively small, but depicts five colonial towns in Mexico in the early 19th century. The Maps and Plans series consists of several historical illustrations of towns and cities, as well as a large map of the California region and reproductions of two Aztec codices. Narrative Scenes is a relatively large series, consisting mostly of prints that depict armed conflicts at various sites around Mexico, including the Batalla de Jamaica and scenes of battle from Santa Anna's lifetime. Obelisks, the eighth series, consists of ten prints, either reproductions or initial plans, of memorial obelisks for a variety of notable figures, including Núñez de Haro. The Obituary lists range from 1768 to 1840, and list the deaths of priests and benefactors in Mexico City. The final series, Portraits, is by far the largest; its subseries include sovereigns, priests, Mexican patriots, and saints.
