203 Asturias, Miguel Angel. Teatro: Chantaje, Dique Seco, Soluna, La Audiencia, De Los Confines.
Buenos Aires: Editorial Losada, S. A., (1964). 
Octavo, paperbound (color illus. white wrappers), 249. Near-Fine, with slight rubbing to covers & very small notation to fep. La obra teatral de Miguel Angel Asturias - primer novelista hispanoamericano que obtiene el Premio Nobel de literatua - no ha recibido tan amplia difusion como sus novelas. El lector ha de buscar, con la mas legitima curiosidad, los rasgos que unan al dramaturgo Asturias con el gran narrador del tormentos presente y el fabuloso pasado centroamericanas. Y no quedara defraudado. Las dos vertientes principales de la personalidad literaria de Asturias (su sentido poetico de las raices indigenas americanas, la conciencia del desequilibrio social enque se debaten los herederos de esas raic) se entrelazan en forma sutil y diversa en las cuatro piezas que este volumen reune.

208 Atwood, Evangeline. Anchorage: All-American City.

From dust jacket: This is the story of how American ingenuity and determination pushed back the wilderness in Alaska to make one of the finest cities in the nation. It is the story of the first 40 years of a community that defied the laws of economics and overcame shackles that made development difficult and seemingly impossible. Anchorage was started as a temporary construction camp. The people who made it refused to let it die when construction was finished. Instead, they found new sources of livelihood, diversified the economy and attracted more residents. Today Anchorage is the hub of transporation in Alaska, headquarters for the military establishment, center of districution. It is a key stop on global air routes over the North Pacific ocean and the North Pole. It ihas more than 70,000 persons and is truly Alaska's Metropolis. The success of the people in building this magnificent city in the face of mighty odds, in overcoming the hurly-burly and often rowdy life that accompanies pioneer efforts, in lifting themselves out of the mud and dust of dirt streets to make a modern, orderly American city with outstanding cultural, educational and spiritual facilites, has won national acclaim...

216 Austin, Margot. Cousin's Treasure. Written and Illustrated by Margot Austin.
New York: E. P. Dutton & Company, Inc., 1960. First Edition, stated. 
Large, square octavo; gold illustrated cloth (hardcover); illus. endpapers, 45 pp. Very Good, with former-owner inscription and light edgewear; in a Fair dust jacket with edgewear that includes chpping and one cellow-tape repaired rip. From dust jacket: The talented creator of Peter Churchmouse now introduces the equally beguiling Cousin, a small, wistful bear, who lives with Uncle. Cousin decides to hunt for buried treasure one day when Uncle is away on big bear business. Armed with a shovel and pail and a treasure map he has made himself, complete with an X to mark the spot, Cousin sets out on his search. But marking the X is easier than finding the spot! While his friends advise, Cousin digs, even agreeing to share the treasure. But when each X spot yields only stones, Cousin doesn't blame his friends for losing interest. Who wants to share stones? By the time two wily promoters appear on the scene, Cousin is exhausted and easily convinced that they know the real X-spot. The surprising treasure he unearths at their direction leaves Cousin a sad, but wiser, bear. His discovery that some “friends” can be false, and that some bears (not to mention any names!) are downright gullible, teaches a wry wisdom spiced with humore. For all who share his adventure, the name Cousin will hold its own rare magic.

Large octavo, illustrated cloth (hardcover), [64] pp. Very Good, with foxing (age darkened spotting) to covers. From text: Up jumped Peter! S-N-A-P! went the snap-rat! Poor little Peter Churchmouse raised his eyebrows the way he always did when he made a poem, “I wish the cheese I ate / Were on a plate / That wouldn't snap at me / Because I DON'T LIKE IT!” Then Peter sat right down on the big wooden snap-rat and ate his cheese. Every last bit. “Now,” said Peter, “I shall bite another big hole in something so that Parson Pease-Porridge will put more cheese on the snap-rat for tomorrow.” So Peter ate a great big hole in the red felt that lined Parson Pease-Porridge's best collection basket. “There, said Peter, “Parson Pease-Porridge will by sure to notice that!”
