I’m at the Sutro Library trying to get as much done as possible before they close for 2 months. I’m looking at anything related to Eufemio Abadiano in their collections — and I mean anything! I’ve included a sample of receipts for you to get a sense of how detailed the receipts are, but, alas, the receipts aren’t exactly what I’m looking for. Sure, it’s interesting to see who bought what book, or how much you paid for a few candles each week, but all the documents are before Eufemio’s time. There are some books that the Abadiano’s published and I’ve been able to track their relocations across Mexico City (or perhaps just the foundation of multiple stores). AND the most exciting thing is that I think I figured out how Abadiano got his name (from the town of Abadaño in the Basque region of Spain!). All that is super fantastic and are pieces of the puzzle. But I’m not quite there yet. I have to get there in the next 2 days though. And that’s the trouble with research on a limited time frame.
