  • De sangre chicana [one-sheet poster]

    [Mexico City]: Cinematografia Roma, [1974]. A Mexican one-sheet poster, 27 by 37 inches, for a Mexican wrestling (lucha libre) movie. The tag line reads Entre dos fronteras; entre dos idiomas; entre dos formas de vida, which translates to Between two borders; between two languages; between two ways of life. The central image is of the mask of the wrestler Huracan Ramirez, surrounded by five other stars of the film, including Pepe Romay, Susana Cabrera, Jose Chavez Trowe, and others. The exact plot of the film is somewhat obsure, but it apparently had something to do with ethnic pride combined with an anti-drug message. ISBN: 281AIB1015972.

    Folded, as issued, else near fine.

  • Lewis, Jon
    From This Earth...of the Delano Grape Strike

    First Edition

    (San Francisco): Jon Lewis, 1969. [98] pages. 8 by 8 inches. A photo-essay on the United Farm Worker's grape strike in the late 1960s. Lewis, a student at San Francisco State, became the defacto official photographer of the union. Many of his pictures appeared in El Malcriado, the union's newspaper, and he published a couple of books of his photographs. The colophon reads, in part, "This volume bears no union bug as it was shaped by one hand, from photography through presswork. An edition of 500 copies represents a master's thesis at San Francisco State College." Less common than even its small limitation would suggest. ISBN: 281AIB0104992.

    First edition (first printing). Top left corner of pageblock a bit wavy, else near fine in wrappers (paperback), as issued.

The pinback buttons from this campaign are common; the poster is not. ISBN: 281AIB0111875.

    First Edition

    Salt Lake City: B. E. Gallagher, 1913. 142 pages. Illustrated. An account of Rafael Lopez, a Mexican American miner who killed several men, holed up in a mine, and somehow evaded capture, despite efforts to smoke him out. According to the author of this book, Lopez was from northern Arizona and had little patience for discrimination or prejudice, frequently erupting into violence when he was slighted. Gallagher writes, "Lopez, being a native of this county, it is likely that if taken advantage of...or looked upon and treated as a full blooded Greaser might resent it to such an extent as to cause him to commit the crimes he did." While not especially rare, this title is not widely known…
