Mexico: Antonio Vanegas Arroyo, (n. d.). Circa 1905. 11-1/4" x 8". Yellow broadsheet printed in black, with engraving of a man standing and pointing to the first word in the title to recto, and of a skull and crossbones to verso. One edge trimmed a little unevenly, faint toning to edges. Very Good+.

Broadsheet commemorating the deaths by suicide of Maria Fuentes and Guadalupe Ortiz. The two friends discovered they were being courted by the same suitor, fled to a park, made a suicide pact, and drank poison. A farewell song begins on the recto and continues on the verso, ending in the skull and crossbones engraving.

Scarce. We find one copy in OCLC, at the Library of Congress, and one copy each at the Getty and U. of Hawaii.
