MATERIAL: Hand-Written/Painted
TYPE: Documents (Loose)
DIMENSIONS: 19 cm x 30 cm.
COMPONENTS: 4 leaves. Extracted from a book. Mounted, but not glued, to a cardboard frame.
CONDITION: In very good condition.
NOTES: I find these quite unusual. I have seen several 20th century Haciendas and Ranches accounting books and they are generally very plain. It's not that the ranch ledgers are rare, but it is unusual to find nice drawings like these ones in them. I believe that they are quite attractive by themselves from an artistic and typographical point of view. That is why I acquired them right away. Plus, someone did a great job in mounting them to cardboard frames.

Colored Sheet Designs from Mexican “Hacienda” Book

DATE
Year: 1854
Decade: 1850s
Century: 19th (1801-1900)

Colored sheet designs from a Mexican “Hacienda” control book. These sheets, most likely extracted from a control ledger from an Hacienda, are very well executed and beautiful. The designs are very colorful and traditional. The design in black ink with the date of 1854 was the title page; the other ones were subtitles from different sections.
• “Cuaderno de lista de alquiladores…”. In black ink
• “Vaqueros y Arrieros”. In colors.
• “Agostadero de San Antonio del Extoral”. In colors.
