(**NEW ARRIVAL**) (Mexican) Feliz Ramos i Duarte. Diccionario de Mejicanismos.

584 pp. Original dec. light yellow cloth. Second Edition. Mexico: Herrero Hermanos Editores, 1898. 

The first book to print the word "taco" (under the definition of Burrito: " que en Yucatán llaman cocito i en Cuernavaco i en Mejico, taco."). A fascinating book of "Mexicanisms", including numerous words for foods and food-related items, all delineated by region. For example, "'Cocoyol': Yucután: Fruit in Mexico called coyol, in Cuba called corojo, and in Tabasco named corozo; 'Enchilada': Empanada with chile, or a tortilla filled with meat, cheese, chile, etc.). Spine cloth crinkled due to interior hinge repairs, slight gouge to front cover, bumping to corners, else good. Scarce.
