Burri, René. / Lanuza, José Luis, 1903- / Borges, Jorge Luis, 1899-1986  
The Gaucho/ photographs by René Burri ; foreword by Jorge Luis Borges; text by José Luis Lanuza.

Publisher: New York, Crown Publishers [1968].
55, [121] p. illus. (4 col.) 30 cm. Translation of El Gaucho, Buenos Aires : Muchnik, 1968. Translated by J.R. Wilcock. "The rider, the man who sees the land from the height of a saddle and dominates his horse, has inspired in all ages an instinctive awe, most obviously symbolized in the equestrian statue. Rome had already applied the adjective cavalieri to a military and social order; everyone knows the similarly derived word "cavalier." British critics have remarked upon the weight and import Yeats gave to the word "rider" in his poems. In our land, that rider was the gaucho. He had lost everything but this ancient prestige, later to be exalted by hardship and loneliness. " (Borges) After joining Magnum in the late 1950s, Burri, a Swiss photographer travelled extensively around the world from the Middle East to South America. Here he photographs the Argentinian Gaucho - his life on horseback and associated customs. Stock# 44,312. Vg / dj small tears at edges, in mylar.

Chavannes, José  
Mapa De Los Ferro Carriles De La República Argentina...
 Picture
Publisher: Buenos Aires, Dirección de Ferro Carriles Nacionales, 1892.
Printed color topographical map, four parts of eighteen sections each, backed with linen. Each part consists of a single horizontal fold and nine vertical folds and is attached to its covers at the lower left section. Each section measures 8.25 x 12.25 inches. Each unfolded part of 18 sections measures 24.5 inches high by 74.5 inches wide, the entire map unfolds to eight feet two inches in height and six feet two inches wide. Title continues: Y De Los Paises Limítrofes. Construido segun los datos é instrucciones suministrados por el Presidente de la Direccion Dor Don Luis Faraoz por el Ingeniero Geógrafo Dor José Chavanne. The four parts are bound in embossed green cloth covers printed in gold. Despite a bit of old worming and minor stains, the map is handsome and brilliant. Scale: 1: 1,000,000. Oval stamp of the DFCN near the cartouche. The map encompasses approximately 41° South latitude to approx. 20° S. latitude, and approx. 53° West longitude to a little beyond 73° W. latitude. This includes Chile along its entire western border, in some cases to the Pacific, and parts of Bolivia, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Railroad lines are shown as far south as Bahía Nueva in Chubut on the east coast and a bit inland from Valdivia (Chile) in the west; in the north Asunción is the farthest inland reach, and both completed and projected sections of the Transandine (Valparaiso to Buenos Aires) line are shown (the last tunnel was completed in 1909). Development of railways in Argentina dates from 1857 and was mostly supported by private companies largely controlled in England, about 15% being owned and operated by the government. Produced following an investment crisis in 1890, this map may have been intended to encourage support of an already well developed transportation system carrying the pastoral and agricultural products of Argentina’s steadily developing export trade, which contributed greatly to maintaining the country’s economic stability. Besides showing railways, the large scale on which this map was produced allows a comprehensive view of the country and its physical peculiarities. Dry rivers, mountain peaks, saline lakes, central plateaus, the Gran Chaco, countless rivers— all are shown with the detail and elevations one expects from railroad survey expeditions. Stock#NS0156.

Hudson, William Henry, Illustrated by: Duvoisin, Roger  
W. H. Hudson's Tales of the Pampas
 Picture
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf, 1939 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "When a volume appears which contains the superb classic writing of W. H. Hudson and six full-page gravure illustrations by one of the most talented living illustrators every reader of fine literature and every person discriminating in appreciation of inspired art wishes to own the book. Tales of the Pampas is one of the finest collections of short stories in our language. Theodore Roosevelt said, '..it gives the very soul of the land; and nowadays the soul is changing as rapidly as the land itself. Hudson's work is of great permanent value. He is one of a very limited number of people who have been able not only to appreciate the wild picturesqueness of the old time South American life, but to portray it as it should be portrayed. His writings come in that very small class of books which deserve the title of literature.'" 245 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; wear to edges.
