La vuelta del desterrado

La vuelta del desterrado
1 print on tan ground wood paper : relief cut, with text in letterpress ; 30.3 x 20.7 cm. (sheet).
Broadside contains full-length portrait of General Don Porfirio Díaz, facing left, in military uniform. The text conveys sympathy for Díaz and calls him a hero of the Mexican nation and asks for his return to his country from Paris. On the verso there is a poem titled "To Mr. General Porfirio Díaz in his exile" and a song titled "Ipiranga." After a successful opposition by Francisco I. Madero's forces against the Díaz regime during the Mexican Revolution, Díaz fled Mexico on May 26, 1911, on the German ship Ipiranga.
