First edition. "The beauty and richness of the Mexican landscape are contrasted with the ugliness of its poverty and vices to produce an interesting account of a brief journey made sometime between 1887 and 1889... Perhaps Mexico possessed the potential to advance far, but aqs she observed antiquated agricultural and mining techniques, Mrs. Crawford felt such reluctance to change time-honored work methods must be considered a serious obstacle." - Cole. AMERICAN TRAVELERS TO MEXICO. #108.
