Rene D'Harnoncourt, was known for his vast collection of Mexican antiquities and his writing of children's books. This work became his best known and was intended for an adult audience. Profusely illustrated with full page black and white illustrations. Each rich drawing is accompanied with social commentary. The one called "Formal Call", shows the suitor meeting with the parents of Rosita as his suitability is considered before courtship can begin. The delightful image Bullfight Fans shows three men discussing the decline of bullfights. The Matador is not as good in the past, the bull is inferior to those, he comments as the three friends have been saying for twenty years.
