Mexico, 1816-21

EXCESSIVELY RARE. It contains a biography of nearly 4000 writers, with a bibliography of the works of each. Part of the second and third volumes are edited by Rafael Enriquez Trespalacios Beristain, a relative of the author, who died before the work was finished.

“Le catalogue des ouvrages de Beristain est fort nombreux. Il passa toujours pour un ami des lettres, mais d'un servilisme extravagant. Une note manuscrite à son article, dans l'exemplaire de ma collection, dit de lui ces mots : Beristain fué el hombre mas servil que parió madre! Lastima que fuera mi paisano ! L'auteur de cette note, Juan Evangelista Guadalajara, ainsi qu'il se fait connaître dans cet exemplaire qui lui appartint avant moi, en a surchargé les marges, aussi bien que les pages blanches, en tête et en quene des trois volumes, d'un grand nombre d'annotations, de rectifications et d'articles supplémentaires qui seraient des plus utiles pour une seconde édition du Beristain. Ces annotations, faites par un homme parfaitement au courant des hommes et des choses de son pays, en font un exemplaire non seulement précieux, mais unique. Il s'y trouve en outre quatorze portraits gravés ou

lithographiés tirés de différentes publications.”Brasseur de Bourbourg. 30218 BIBLIOTHECA AMERICANA, a chronological Catalogue of the most

New York, 1873 This bibliographical handbook, embracing a collection of about 1800 works, may be considered the chief, if not the only one of its kind. The author's notes are judicious and valuable, and have an interest beyond even the actual subject of the Essay. Collectors of Americana of every kind will derive pleasure and profit from a labour that evinces a wide range of study and experience. The frequent inaccuracies that appear in the transcription

of titles in foreign languages may be merely typographical. 30225 HARRISSE (H.) BIBLIOTHECA AMERICANA VETUSTISSIMA,

Paris, 1872 It is easy to find errors in this elaborate work, but it still remains an indispensable book of reference. The arrangement is chrorological, but an alphabetical index is added. “Le supplement donne la description de près de 260 ouvrages ayant rapport à l'Amérique et qui avaient échappés aux recherches des bibliographes spéciaux. C'est un des plus beaux livres publiés de nos jours.”
