A drama in verse based on the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe to the Mexican Indian Juan Diego, Mariano González de Avila y Uribe’s Poema cómica-historial includes dialogue spoken by the Virgin Mary, Juan Diego, Fr. Juan de Zumárraga, Fr. Toribio de Motolinía, a page, angels, and other characters. This early independence-era printing of the play includes six unsigned woodcuts which highlight key moments in the story of the Virgin of Guadalupe’s first appearances and recognition in Mexico.
