Devotional Marian Broadsides

A collection of six uncommon Mexican devotional sheets dedicated to Mary, Virgin of Guadaloupe, all printed in 1831 in Puebla or Mexico City on the occasion of the tricentennial of the series of five Marian apparitions recorded in 1531, plus one additional broadside, printed on pale yellow paper in 1853. An excellent and instructive group, well representative of early Mexican job printing in the name of the Virgin. All in good antiquarian condition.
