Covel: Co0/urnes Mexu aIIs: Cauque Apathe by Claudio Linati, 1828. Hand-colored
lithoglraplh, 12"V,'o x 9'/ inches. Couitesy Amron Carle Museum, For Worth.
Born in Italy, Claudio Linati (1790-1832) lived and traveled in Mexico
in 1825- 1826 where he made a series of watercolors documenting the
country's varied people and life-styles. He introduced the art of lithog-
raphy to Mexico in 1826. His book Costume Czviles, Mdzltazres et Relzgeux
de Mexzque, which was published in Brussels in 1828, was the first
lithograph-plate book on Mexico and has served for more than a cen-
tury as an important source of images and information on early nine-
teenth-century Mexico. The lithograph of the Apache on the cover of
this issue, based on one of his watercolors, appeared as plate 22 in that
important book. This striking image of an Apache on horseback has a
somewhat stiff, romantic grandeur about it that may have had little to do
with the Apaches of earlier years described in Manuel Merino's report,
which is the subject of an article in this issue of the Quarterly.
The year 1992 will mark the 5ooth anniversary of Spain's entry into the
New World. To recognize this important historical event, which has
had such an enormous impact on Texas and the Southwest, this issue of
the Southwestern Hzstorzcal Quarterly focuses on the borderlands that
Texas has shared with her Indian, Spanish, and Mexican neighbors.
