        La canción del barrio.

      [Buenos Aires, Francisco A. Colombo, 1933]. - Small portfolio containing a suite of 15 engraved plates in the dry point technique. Illustrated front-wrapper serving as title page. One of 90 copies printed on soft paper. Edited by Viau and Zona. Enrique Fernández Chelo designed and engraved the dry point plates and made the impression from the hand-press of the Escuela Superior de Bellas Artes de la Nación. Evaristo Carriego reflects the colourful street life of the bohemian parts of Buenos Aires in the early 20th century. Evaristo, a minor popular poet and a great conversationalist, had made a great impression on the young Jorge Luis Borges, whose family lived in the same part of Buenos Aires. Borges’ life of Carriego (published in 1930 - see item no 55 in this catalogue) in which he recalls his childhood memories, inspired the present series. Francisco A. Colombo (1868-1953) was a self-taught craftsman of great talent. He began as a modest printer who made his own paper in the rural town of San Antonio de Areco; by the late 1920s he was already the most accomplished printer in South America producing books of considerable quality.

        K'oen -yu ts'iuen t'ou

      [Beijing, 1674, but reprinted Korea, 1933]. - Xylograph, printed on 6 sheets, the southern polar landmass embellished with animals, including a unicorn, a lion, a rhinoceros, a crocodile, a giraffe, a beaver and a turkey, the spandrels with eight large lozenges with text descriptions, mounted on a large screen. One of the largest world maps ever printed. Verbiest's original is as rare as its forerunner produced by Matteo Ricci at Beijing in 1602 (or its now-lost predecessors). This reprint is almost as rare. It is easily distinguished from the 1674 by the addition of a new imprint in Chinese (accompanied with a chop in this example), and by the fact that the text in the spandrels of the original is within differently-shaped frames. The map itself has many similarities to Ricci's (on a Mercator projection), with updating to reflect European (largely English) exploration of the Canadian Arctic and Greenland. A remarkable piece of printing by the Jesuits in China, published to mark their official return to favour. Beginning with Ricci at the end of the sixteenth century, the Jesuits were really only tolerated in China as scientific advisers and were not allowed to embark on a general mission throughout the country, nevertheless the influence at the imperial court of Ricci's successor, Adam Schall von Bell aroused the jealousy of imperial agents who, on the pretext of the Jesuits supposedly preparing the way for Portuguese occupation, in 1664 had Schall von Bell and five assistants sentenced to death. Schall von Bell was reprieved, but his Chinese assistants were executed and all the priests in China, were rounded up in Canton with a view to being expelled. It wasn't until 1667 when the young Emperor K'ang-Hsi began to take a hand in the affairs of government and made friends with Schall's successor, Ferdinand Verbiest, that the measures taken against the Christians were rescinded and the position of the Fathers made secure. The 1674 original is reproduced in 'Europa und die Kaiser' (Frankfurt, 1985), at p.109-111. A Canton version c.1860 is reproduced (in error for the original), in 'Chine Ciel et Terre' (Gent, 1982), at p.408-409.

      WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE, Stokes, 1933, 1st edition, a bright near fine copy of this classic world catastrophe novel in an equally bright vg+ first printing full color pictorial dust-wrapper with a small chip missing from the upper left corner of the bit faded dust-wrapper spine panel. Of three binding states, this is by far the scarcest and while we cannot prove it to be the first of the three such bindings, the logical evidence certainly seems to support this case as this binding has gold lettering on the spine only and measures an 1/8 inch higher than its other two counterparts; both shorter and identical in size, one with powder blue lettering on both the burgundy cloth spine and front cover and the other with black lettering on both the brick red cloth spine and front cover. While the priority of these bindings may remain unknown, it certainly was a long time custom for first state bindings to have gold-gilt lettering and later state bindings to be without. Also it seems most illogical for a contemporary later issue binding to be larger than its companions. Thus we argue and thus we rest, perhaps forever without certainty. The source book for 1953 film of the same name.

Among his major publications, however, are collections of photographs of colonial Mexican cities and states. He also published several volumes of historical documents and papers, dying in 1953. Some insect damage to a few of the cardboard backings to the photos, in no case affecting the photos themselves. Very good.

        Autograph letter and envelope signed to Philip W. Bonsal – "Dear Bonzal (Bonz/Bonzo/Phillip)"

      Havana, Cuba: Hotel Ambros Mundos, Sept. 2, , 1933. A4 paper with the letterhead of the Hotel Ambros Mundos. Written in black ink on both sides. Complete with the envelope. Envelope addressed by Hemingway and signed by him. An excellent letter discussing bullfighting in considerable detail: "The feria at Salamanca has three corridas starting the 12th of September with bulls of Juan Cobaleda for Vicente Barrera, Fernando Dominguez (have never seen him) Rafael Vega (little brother of Gitanillo de Triana) – saw him in San Sebastian – very fine style with cape, plenty brave but green with the muleta. 13th – Portuguese Rejoneador Joao Branco Nuncio – and Villalta, Armillita Chico and La Serna (good program. La Serna very hot stuff this season / 4 Terrones bulls 4 Palugese of alves de Rio. 14th – Barrera, La Serna and this Dominguez six of Indolecio Garcia Maleo. If Dominguez is any good could be a good feria. We should have fun anyway. Will go either 10th or 11th and stay at Grand Hotel (new – supposed to be good) Will get you a room and the tickets. Will be damned fine to see you. Will goto the Patronato de Turismo here and reserve the rooms. If you want to come direct to Madrid we might all get a car and drive up. Handsome ride from here. Only about 211 kilometers I think. Wire me of write me your plans will you? Hotel Biarritz, Calle Victoria, 2 Madrid. Dont worry about intruding – it will be a hell of a pleasure to see you and to make the trip. Dominguez was a big shot as a novillero last year – Hasn't been so hot this – But they say is very good if he draws an easy bull. Amulleta Chico is the best fighter working today – La Serna is the big sensation of this year. I went to Bilbao to see him but he didn't show up". The recipient, Philip W. Bonsal (1903–1995), was a career diplomat and the last United States ambassador to Cuba. On another occasion he was the recipient of a fabulously drunken presentation copy of Death in the Afternoon.
