Hard to Find Books From Mexico

During my research and studies into the culture of west Mexico I have used a valuable resource called Books from Mexico that has consistently served as a superb resource for both commonly available and hard to find or out of print books on and about Mexico.

Books from Mexico is based in Mexico City and owned and directed by S. Lief Adelson. I have on several occasions requested an obscure or out-of-print title like the Perros de las Tumbas en Colima, published by the University of Colima. Books from Mexico conducts efficient research to locate and mail these books.

While their main business is to sell Mexican publications to university and research libraries world-wide, many scholars, writers and book enthusiasts of all kinds use their services as a bibliographic resource. They are the bibliographic "eyes and ears" of over libraries worldwide for Mexican publications including US Library of Congress, Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut (Berlin), Harvard University, Oxford University (Great Britain), University of California-Los Angeles, the Bancroft Library, University of Chicago, Cambridge University (Great Britain), Yale University, Cornell University, Tulane University, University of Texas-Austin.

With the dearth of bookstores in Puerto Vallarta and the challenge of receiving books via international mail, the value of this service for those of us living in Puerto Vallarta is that they have access to every publication published in, by and about Mexico and can access it and send it quickly. They not only list newly published books and obscure books but can also find out-of-print books. Books from Mexico sends out a digital catalog monthly as a pdf attachment and will add prospective buyers to their email list of subscribers. To download their catalogues, visit
