Índice de las notas de D. Diego Clemencín en su edición de "El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha", Bradford, Carlos Federico ; [Cervantes]
3 Bradford, Carlos Federico ; [Cervantes] Índice de las notas de D. Diego Clemencín en su edición de "El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha"
Madrid Imprenta de Manuel Tello 1885 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ 8vo 
xii & 623 pages; Contemporary red pebbled half morocco over marbled-paper-covered boards, raised bands on the spine, title and author lettered in gilt directly in the second and fourth panels, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. This index is still useful and much cited. It was prepared by the Boston-based scholar Charles F. Bradford as an exhaustive index to the influential edition of Cervantes great novel 'Don Quixote' made by Diego Clemencín (1765-1834). [El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quixote, Comentado por Don Diego Clemencin. Madrid : 1833-9]. This was well worthy of many years of Charles Bradford's attention; Henry Edward Watts (in his own renowned edition of Cervabtes) said of this famous edition of Quixote: "This is the famous edition of Clemencin, with a commentary more full, minute, and elaborate than any of which Don Quixote has ever been the object. Perhaps no book, ancientor modern, has been dissected, analysed, criticised, and illustrated with so free a hand, and, on the whole, with so much industry, patience, and learning as Don Quixote has been by Senior Clemencin." Watts also assesses the present work: "An index to Clemencin's notes, by Mr. Charles F. Bradford,of Boston, was published at Madrid in 1885, and forms an indispensable addition to these six volumes, with which it is a pity it was not printed uniformly." This copy of Bradford's extensive work has an inscription neatly written in ink on the first front blank leaf: "T. R. Sullivan from Mrs. Charles F. Bradford." This is in the hand of the recipient, Thomas Russell Sullivan (1849-1916) - a Boston dramatist and novelist. Sullivan published a first novel in the same year as Bradford's index appeared - ['Roses of Shadow' 1885]. But he achieved more fame as a dramatist. Today, it must be admitted that his greatest fame in that department depended on a succès de scandale. Richard Mansfield, an Amerian actor, suggested that Sullivan adapt Robert Louis Stevenson’s latest bestseller, 'The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.' Mansfield would take on the dual title role himself. After a succesful Boston opening, Sullivan's production traveled to New York in September and to London the following year. In London, the show opened just days before the first of five horrific murders in London’s Whitechapel district. More than one member of the London audience, under the spell of Richard Mansfield histrionic skills, went to the Metropolitan police to suggest that Mansfield must really be the killer, who came to be known as "Jack the Ripper." The London production closed early. Sullivan went on to a career as a playwright and man of letters in Boston. He became a trustee of the Boston Athenaeum in 1909, the same year as he recorded the presentation of this volume from Mrs. Bradford. There are two noteworthy bookplates facing one another on the marbled front endpapers of this volume. One is Thomas Russell Sullivan's pictorial bookplate on the free-endpaper. The other is an interesting mounted albumen photographic-bookplate which displays a medal presented to Charles F. Bradford by the Royal Academy of Spain. We do not know whether this was Charles F. Bradford's own bookplate, or a plate designed for presentation copies of his major work of scholarship. Also, the later signature of the noted Hispanist Stuart M. Gross appears below Sullivan's inscription. Solid and handsome, but with minor rubbing to the hinges and corners of the binding, and a distinct mark of sunning to the marbled paper covering the front board. Longfellow completeists should note that among the (printed) letters of commendation at the end of the Appendix to Bradford for this work is a full page letter from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (in Spanish).

Breve tractado de Grimalte y Gradissa, de Flores, Juan
6 de Flores, Juan Breve tractado de Grimalte y Gradissa
Madrid Publisher not indicated 1883 Hardcover Near Fine 8vo 
xi p., & [facsimile, 113] pages; Bound around the time of publication in 1883 in half vellum over brown marbled paper covered boards, two leather spine labels lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others trimmed rough. This is press numbered "58" on the verso of the title page -- ("Edición fotolitográfica, 107 ejemplares. Números 1 al 4, en vitela; 5 al 107, en papel de hilo. Núm. 58). So this is one of 103 copies printed on "papel de hilo; (copies numbered 1-4 were printed on vellum). A superb early facsimile of the unique copy of this important early novel in Spanish, which was first printed in the last decade of the era of incunabula, around 1495. The original pictorial wrappers on tan paper are bound in , front and rear. Following a title page in red and black, identified only "Madrid, 1883" there is a "Prologo" signed: P. de G. (i.e. Pascual de Gayangos). OCLC Number: 14256023. Even though it is nearly 400 years after the unique first edition (printed in Lerida by H. Botel), this is the earliest obtainable edition,( NOT to be confused with the more easily obtained 1954 facsimile published in Madrid by the Real Academia Espanola in 300 copies). Juan de Flores lived from about 1455 to about 1525, and was a Spanish courtier, knight, administrator, diplomat and author. In 1476, he was appointed official chronicler to the monarchs Fernando and Isabella. He is mostly known for two "sentimental novels": Grimalte y Gradissa and Grisel y Mirabella -- each was probably written between 1470-1477. Inspired by Bocaccio -- (this text can be seen as a sequel of sorts to Giovanni Boccaccio's 'Elegia di Madonna Fiammetta') -- de Flores became the most widely read Spanish writer in Europe before Cervantes. 'Grimalte y Gradissa' was translated into French in 1535 by Maurice Scève as 'La Déplourable fin de Flamecte.' Tight and sound, there is just a trace of light soiling to the binding (the stiff vellum is of high quality and could be cleaned easily). No marks of ownership.

11 Gasparini, Graziano ; Carlos F. Duarte LOS RETABLOS DEL PERIODO HISPANICO EN VENEZUELA
Caracas Ernesto Armitano 1986 Second Edition Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket Folio 13" - 23" tall 
295 pages; Clean and tight in original decorative yellow cloth binding in bright pictorial dustjacket. Limited edition of only 2000 copies. Second edition of OCLC: 559338314 Includes wonderful color plates depicting the Baroque altarpieces found in Venezuela. Though not a comprehensive inventory of the altarpieces made during the Colonial period in Venezuela,this book presents an excellent sampling of those with the most significant characteristics, created by the most representative masters, and those that we classify as popular works. Carlos F. Duarte presents serious research where the erudite and dialectic blend harmoniously. The complete process that gave rise to the appearance of retables in the country is described. The architectural character of the design of altarpieces has inspired many facades of religious buildings. Duarte underlines the differences that exist between Venezuelan altarpieces and those of Mexico and Peru. "The images, whether painted or sculpted, always retain their own individuality. Although they form part of the work itself, they are not to be confused with them. The case is different with the exhuberant Mexican or Peruvian altarpieces, where the painted or sculpted works merge with the wood carving, forming an invisible piece, so to speak. For this reason, it can be affirmed that the altarpieces of Venezuela have their own characteristics".
