144 Antochiv, Michel. Historia Cartografica de la Peninsula de Yucatan.
Gobierno del Estado de Campeche, (1994). 
Quarto, brown boards (hardcover), gilt letters, illus. endpapers, 308 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: Conforme mas se estudia la evolucion de la cartografia, con mayor certza se llega a la conclusion de que dicha ciencia sintetiza la manera en que el hombre ha reconocido y se ha apropiado del espacio territorial. Asi lo demuestra esta Historia cartografica de la peninsula de Yucatan, la cual es producto de anos de investigacion en archivos y mapotecas de Mexico, Estados Unidos y varios paises de Europa. En ella su autor, Michel Antochiw, nos brinda un analisis extenso de la vision cartografica que los mayas, europeos y habitantes de Yucatan en general han tenido sobre los litorales y geografia de la peninsula. APra lograrlo, Antochiw no se limita unicamante a analizar la manera en que las cartas y planos de esa porcion territorial, y en general de todo el golfo de Mexico, fueron adquiriendo mayor precision a lo largo del tiempo. Por el contrario, tambien nos ofrece explicaciones, sustentadas en un profundo conocimiento historico, acerca de las multiples expediciones, fundaciones y obras de defensa que realizo el gobierno espanol sobre las coastas de sus poseiones americanas; de igual modo analiza la presencia constante de piratas y bucaneros que, gracias a sus recorridos por los litorales yucatecos, a sus incursiones al interior del territorio e incluso a sus asentamientos en lugares tan estrategicos como la laguna de Terminos en el actual estado de Campeche, fueron adquiriendo y transmitiendo informacion geografica cada vez mas certera a los centros de produccion cartografica que existian en Europa...

160 Aresenault, Raymond. The Wild Ass of the Ozarks: Jeff Davis and the Social Bases of Southern Politics.
Philadelphia: Temple University Press, (1984). First Edition. 
Signed and Inscribed by the Author. Octavo, cloth & boards (hardcover), silver letters, 336 pp. Near-Fine, with light foxing (age darkened spotting), in a Good, mylar protected dust jacket with edgewear that includes chipping. From dust jacket: The saga of Jeff Davis is part of a much larger story -- the story of a political tradition that dominated Southern politics for nearly three quarters of a century. Along with ÒPitchfork BenÓ Tillman of South Carolina, ÒFiddlin' BobÓ Taylor of Tennessee, Tom Watson of Georgia, and James K. Vardaman of Mississippi, Davis served as a prototype for the Southern demagogue. His remarkable career influenced countless politicians including Huey Long, who was mesmerized by a Davis stump speechin 1911. The Wild Ass of the Ozarks is a biography of Jeff Davis and an analysis of the sources of his support. This is not the Civil War Jeff Davis (though many hillbilly voters thought so, to the candidate's benefit) but the late nineteenth-century, early twentieth-century populist. As attorney general and later as governor of Arkansas, Davis was a fiery trustbuster and all-around hell-raiser. THis is a book about the workings of state politics Southern-style, the power and contraditions of populist oratory, and the demography underlying the colorful politics. Rather than assume that a demagogue like Davis drew his support from the least educated, most rural people in the state, the author has labored hard with quantitative techniques to deduce a more subtle picture of Southern voting and of Southern life. The legendary backwardness of Arkansas and its people conceals significant differences in the political opinions of the residents of differet kinds of small towns and hamlets. Since the book begins during the Reconstruction era, it is also a book about race relations, black and white voting patterns, and racial attitudes.
