[Mexico City]: B. Lara, 1891. Broadside, 23.75 x 7.75 inches. Previously folded. Light wear along old folds. Printed on weak paper with several imperfections. About very good. Item #857
An attractively printed broadside advertisement for a bullfight taking place on February 22, 1891, at the Plaza de Toros del Paseo Nuevo, the principal site for such occasions in Mexico City during the 19th century. The broadside announces the main matador, Antonio Escobar, and prints some of his complementary remarks regarding the occasion. The broadside also prints the remaining cast of bullfighters and the order or events at the grounds, culminating in a series of fights against five bulls, as well as ticket prices. A scarce survival.
