La guerra de reforma según el archivo del General D. Manuel Doblado, 1857–1860

Notes: Volume III of the Nuevos documentos ineditos o muy raros para la historia de México, second series. Doblado was a native of Guanajuato and an active participant in the Reform War on the side of Benito Juárez. This volume prints transcriptions of letters written to Doblado.

The Nuevos documentos series was a project originally edited by Genero García. The first series filled 36 volumes. García completed one volume of the second series before he died. The second volume was prepared for publication but never issued. García's collection went to the University of Texas at Austin, where Carlos Castañeda continued the project, turning to his friend, Ignacio Lozano, the most important Spanish language publisher in Texas, to print this third (and final, I believe) volume.

It was an unusual project for Lozano, who specialized in novels and other books for a popular audience. See Cantañeda's biography, Knight without Armor, pp. 78–79 for more details.
