[shallow chipping along top edge of front cover, fading along left edge of front cover, considerable deterioration/paper loss to spine, although the pages are all still firmly attached to the binding]. (halftone photographs, color and B&W illus.) Bi-lingual (Spanish and English) quarterly devoted to Mexican art and culture. "Mexican Folkways" was created in 1925 by American anthropologist Frances Toor, and was intended to promote Mexico's "traditional" culture for a primarily American readership. After Rivera became the art editor in 1926, the magazine's coverage of the arts expanded to include the work of contemporary artists working in Mexico, including Rivera himself, José Clemente Rivera, Edward Weston and Tina Modotti. (Modotti is listed among the contributing editors, and this issue contains two of her photos "An Aztec Baby" and "An Aztec Mother," the latter a full-page reproduction.) The primary articles/features in this issue are: "El Canto de Quetzalcoatl / The Song of Quetzalcoatl" by John Hubert Cornyn, with color illustrations; "La Arquitectura Azteca / Aztec Architecture" by Edwardo Noguera, including a full-page illustration "The Plan of the Great Aztec Temple"; "Nace un Niño en Tepoztlan / A Child is Born in Tepoztlan" by Margaret Park Redfield, illustrated by the aforementioned Tina Modotti photographs; "Pancho el Juguetero / Pancho the Toy Maker" by René d'Hanancourt; "Trágica Muerte del General Obregón / Tragic Death of General Obregon," a poem by Enrique Munguía; "Gentes y Escuelas de la Sierra de Juárez / Folks and Schools of the Sierra of Juarez" by Frances Toor; and "Corrido de la Muerte de Emilio Carranza / The Death of Emilio Carranza," a ballad. There are also several book reviews. Issues of this periodical, which ceased publication in 1937, are scarce in the marketplace, although library holdings are extensive.
