        Historia heráldica y origen de la nobleza de los Austrias .

      1996. Ediciones Grial-Patrimonio Nacional. 1996 - . . . 2 Vol. . Vol.I: 386 pp. (facsímil) Vol.II: 147 pp. (comentarios). Folio Imperial. Plena Piel. Bibliografía / Bibliofilia (Facsímil), Historia de España (Austrias) . Magnífica edición facsímil de esta obra dedicada en 1549 por Otto Truchses, Cardenal de Augsburgo, a Felipe II, quien estimó con especial predilección este manuscrito. Se encuentra especialmente considerado en la Biblioteca del Real Monasterio de San Lorenzo de El Escorial como obra de lujo. Contiene una descripción del Mundo desde sus comienzos bíblicos hasta mediados del siglo XVI desde el punto de vista cronológico e histórico. La raza humana comienza con Noé y sus hijos, que pueblan las partes de Africa, Asia y Europa. Este orden cronológico es introducido cada vez por un "prefatio heraldi" en el que se encuentran elaborados los enfoques sobre política específicos del capítulo en cuestión. La exposición de cada territorio tiene lugar según principios geográficos, de conocimiento del país e históricos, aunque siempre resaltando la relación con la casa de Augsburgo. Queda constancia de la entrega de los códices gracias a una nota manuscrita de la Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek (Biblioteca Estatal de Baviera): "Anno 1549 El Obispo de Augsburg homenajeó al Príncipe de Austria con preciosos libros, que encargó a Tyrols, habitante de Augsburgo, con grandes costos y con exquisitos dibujos y textos" Contiene 227 miniaturas, obra de Jorge Breu "El Joven", pintor también natural de Augsburgo, que realizó un magnífico trabajo de iluminación del manuscrito. Impreso sobre pergamino y papel, la calidad de la reproducción es enorme ya que el facsímil reproduce incluso la forma del corte de cada hoja con respecto al original conservado en la Biblioteca de El Escorial. Presenta una encuadernación editorial inspirada en la del original en piel sobre tabla de madera con gofrados en ambos planos y lomera. El facsímil viene acompañado por un volumen de comentarios a cargio de Elisabeth Scheciher, con reproducciones de las miniaturas y comentarios sobre las mismas.

        The Green Mile.

      Penguin, London 1996 - First edition of each of the six paperbacks published in self-contained monthly installments in 1996. Small octavo, 6 volumes. Each copy is signed by Stephen King on the title page. A very sharp set, showing only light shelfwear. This novel taps into what Stephen King does best: character-driven storytelling. The setting is the small "death house" of a Southern prison in 1932. The charming narrator is an old man looking back on the events, decades later. Maybe it's a little too cute, maybe the pathos is laid on a little thick, but it's hard to resist the colorful personalities and simple wonders of this supernatural tale. As Time magazine put it, "Like the best popular art, The Green Mile has the courage of its cornier convictions . the palpable sense of King's sheer, unwavering belief in his tale is what makes the novel work as well as it finally does." And it's not a bad choice for giving to someone who doesn't understand the appeal of Stephen King, because the one scene that is out-and-out gruesome can be easily skipped by the squeamish. The Green Mile was nominated for a 1997 Bram Stoker Award and was made into the well-received motion picture directed by Frank Darabont and starring Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan.
