        Crónica de Michoacán

      Mexico City: Talleres Graficos de la Nacion, 1932. Description:3 volumes. xxix-574 pages with 4 folding maps; 466 pages with folding coats of arms, 6 folding native illustrations and map; 469 pages with 2 coats of arms (one folding) and 6 folding native illustrations. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 7") bound in three quarter blue leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine. Introduction by Rafael Lopez. From the library of George Foster. Publicaciones del Archivo General de la Nacion volume XVII, XVIII and XIX.There are only meager biographical data about Pablo de la Purísima Concepción Beaumont, whose work is a major source on Michoacán. Despite its title "Chronicle of the Holy Apostles St Peter and St Paul of Michoacán," Beaumont's work in fact spans a much greater area, including much of western Mexico, northward to New Mexico, and tending toward a general history. It provides details to 1565. Beaumont divided his total work into tow major parts, the firs, or Aparato, intended to be introductory to the second or the Crónica proper. the first seems complete, but the second was never finished. The Aparato takes up fully a third of the extant Beaumont work, although nominally introductory. It deals with the discovery of America and the conquest of Mexico to the year 1521. It was twice published before appearance of the total work. Far more valuable is the Crónica. It consists of two books and one chapter of book 3. Beaumont drew on a wide variety of sources. He tell us us that he gathered a large quantity of manuscripts from various Franciscan archives as well as listing 30 standard writers in printed sources. He gives full copies of some of his documents, of which several have since disappeared. He speaks of obtaining a native painting, possibly from which his illustrations came. These paintings show incidents of the first visits of Spaniards to Michoacán, there reception by Tarascans, labors of the Franciscans, coats of arms of principal cities of Michoacán. It is usually through that Beaumont composed his work around 1777. That is the last date in the later copies of the original manuscript. Unfortunately his original manuscript is lost. It was copied in Mexico City around 1792 to for volumes 7-11 of a 32 volume Collection of Memories on New Spain, ordered by Viceroy Conde de Revilla Gigedo and compiled by Manuel de la Vega. Three partially complete sets of these Vega Memorias are known; from one or another of them come other recopied manuscript copies, as well as the printed versions. Editions of the work have a somewhat unfortunate publishing history. In 1826 Bustamante published an incomplete and useless edition of the Aparato, attributing it to Vega, who had owned the manuscript Bustamante used. In 1873-74 a five volume edition of both Aparato and Crónica appeared in Mexico; it lacks the Indian drawings, and was based on a secondary manuscript copy made b y J F Ramirez that then belonged to Alfredo Chavero. A three volume version was published by the National Archives of Mexico in 1932, based on their copy of the 1792 collection of Memorias; it contains the Indian drawings and an introduction by Rafael Lopez. The text seems slightly corrupt, but it may be near the original, as Beaumont said his Spanish was defective, owing to his Parisian rearing. George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:Some underlining in pencil through out by Foster. Foster's date of acquire on front paste down, early owner's name on front end paper. some light soiling and rubbing to extremities else a very good set.

Light rubbing to the spine and extremities, near fine in an exceptionally bright dust jacket with only minor light rubbing to the edges. After the success of his first three novels, Huxley abandoned the fictional milieu of literary London and directed his satire toward an imagined future. He admitted that the original idea of Brave New World was to challenge H.G. Wells' Utopian vision… The novel also marks Huxley's increasing disenchantment with the world, which was to result in his leaving England for California in 1937 in search of a more spiritual life. The book was immediately successful" (Parker & Kermode).

      New York: William Farquhar Payson, 1932. New York: William Farquhar Payson, 1932. First edition. Cloth. Very Good/fair. Small square quarto (8 1/4"). First edition of this 90 page extended meditation on forces affecting the modern city. Illustrated with some black and white photographs. Green cloth covers decorated in black are in very good condition. The book is lightly shelfworn and the endpapers are somewhat darkened, but overall a handsome very good copy. The price-intact dustwrapper is present but is quite worn and has an alpine shaped large chip to the front cover as well as numerous other smaller chips and wear. This copy benefits from a handwritten presentation by Wright "To "Dave" one of the heroes of this book. Frank Lloyd Wright. Taliesen. June 8." The question of who "Dave" is remains although from a reading of the text it is quite possible that Wright was referring to Walter V. Davidson whose home Wright built in Buffalo and who is mentioned in several passages within the text. An uncommon early Wright title and one which seldom appears with inscription.

        Miss Zilphia Gant

Preface by Henry Nash Smith. 8vo: xii,29,[2]pp, no. 189 of 300 numbered copies. Original reddish-brown gilt-ruled and -lettered cloth, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed. Very light wear to spine tips, else clean, tight, bright and unmarked; about Fine (and apparently unread), wanting the original glassine dust jacket. Petersen A12.1 Probably written in 1929, three years before publication by the Book Club of Texas in this special edition of three hundred copies. The short story centers on development of the title character whose mother raises her as a virtual prisoner. "Though it is crude in its handling of sexual imagery and suffers from a number of other technical problems that betray it as an early story, it does create two vivid characters. And of more importance, it reveals the author grappling with a theme that will be developed fully in some of his greatest stories and novels: the warping, destructive impact upon the psyche of the repression of those drives that connect the human being to the world of nature. . . . The narrative techniques of 'Miss Zilphia Gant' also show Faulkner surely, if falteringly, moving toward this techniques that will make his Jefferson stories and novels masterpieces."
