My Tia Martha has this little gem of a book, aside from other great cultural talismans. From the title we get that this book is a Civic Calendar published by the National Indigenous Institute. The information inside describes key events in Mexican history, so in a sense the book is a primer on Mexican citizenship. I am certain that other countries invested in these publications; regardless, the book is a gem and a master work of mechanized printing, as it must have had the colors run seperately, one at a time.
