Barquitos del San Juan: Revista de los niños, año II, número 3 [sic, probably número 4]

Notes: [20] pages. 10-3/4 by 8 inches (oblong). An edition of 200 copies.

Mimeographed on low quality paper and papel de estraza (made from sugar cane waste), with handcolored illustrations and collage elements. The pergaminito (the small, folded broadside included in many issues) is an unattributed short poem, "Mi abuelo guamba" marked, "para colgar en tu cuarto"—to hang in your room.

This is a fragile publication, described by the publisher as "realizado con materiales de deshecho" (made from discarded materials) at the beginning of the economic depression that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union, the so-called "special period."

NB: The numbering of issues is sequential and does not reset each year. Your cataloger has seen an issue called "No. III." The pergamino of the present issue states it belongs with issue no. 4. On that basis, this issue has been tentatively renumbered in the title as issue no. 4.

Edition + Condition: A very good copy.

Publication: Matanzas, Cuba: Ediciones Vigía, Septiembre de 1991.
