242.     [IRIARTE, Hesiquio (after)]. CURRIER, N[athaniel]. El Fandango Mexicano, El Jarave | Mexican Fandango, 1848 [signed in print at lower right in image] J.G. [below image] Lith. & Pub. by Currier, | 152 Nassau St. Cor. of Spruce N.Y. [below title] 633. [New York, 1848]. Toned lithograph with original hand coloring. Image: 20.7 x 31.9 cm; image and line border: 21.2 x 32.3 cm; image, border, and title: 32.1 x 32.3 cm; overall sheet size: 32.5 x 43.7 cm. Slightly browned at top blank margin, lower left blank margin has small area scrubbed from surface, scattered light marginal staining, overall good condition and fresh colors.

     First U.S. edition. Peters, Currier & Ives 584. A smaller scale knock-off of Iriarte’s original Mexican edition of the previous year (see Item 241 herein), this print is one of the few Mexican scenes published by the N. Currier firm that does not depict Mexican-American War scenes. It is, however, basically a somewhat faithful reproduction of Iriarte’s original, lacking the finesse and technical proficiency of its original.

($600-800)
