List #25 - Cuba

Our latest cataogue is devoted to works from and about Cuba, primarily from the 19th century.  It includes unusual and rare imprints -- many of them unrecorded -- not only from Havana, but also Guanabacoa, Cienfuegos, Puerto-Principe, and Matanzas, as well as manuscript material and photography.  Highlights include a rare Cuban cook book illustrated with plates; a rare bilingual guidebook published in Havana in 1899, with a handsome map; an archive of mining photographs featuring local people and scenery; the archive of a Cuban planter from the early 19th-century; a photographically illustrated work on the Cuban Revolution published in 1872; a rare annual guide to Cuba from 1809 located in one other copy; and many more interesting pieces. Enjoy!
