While the content of the 80 pp of text are useful and vital to the research of Cuba at this time, an equally interesting and useful reference may be made of the 16 pp. Booksellers catalogue included at the end, wherein a huge number of different fonts and typesetting devices are found. In a 1965 catalogue from Eberstadt in NY (with a price of $100), the following is noted: Sabin 36444; Caldwell, p. 132.
