1 Ludwig, Christian A DICTIONARY ENGLISH, GERMAN and FRENCH, Containing not only The English Words in Their Alphabetical Order, together with their several significations;
Leipzig and Francfurt Printed by George Saalbach 1736 Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
but also their proper accent, phrases, figurative speeches, idioms and proverbs, taken from the best new ENGLISH DICTIONARIES. SECOND EDITION Carefully Revised, Corrected, and Considerably Augmented. Bound in modern light green library buckram with gilt spine lettering and modern endpapers. ; 8-1/2" x 11"; 739 pp; Book is complete from title page to final page but lacks original endsheets and half title. Soiling to cloth (more on the rear board than the front), first three leaves with tape repairs, resulting in minor losses of readability of no more than a few characters, a long-ago ink spill created a brown marginal stain on the last 60 pages. The text is not impacted, but the last few sheets are brittle where the ink stain is located. Scattered foxing to a few pages, but no apparent writing or ownership markings.

3 Navarro y Lamarca, D. Carlos; Roy Temple House and Carlos Castillo (Abbreviated and Edited by) Compendio de Historia Hispanoamericana
Chicago/Atlanta/New York Scott, Foresman and Company 1925 Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Here is a history of Spanish America written by a South American historian with the Latin American viewpoint - a history that is actually being used as a text in the schools of South America. Although necessarily abbreviated for classroom use in this country, the parts that have been retained are in original form and the South American atmosphere is not disturbed. Publishers blue cloth, gilt lettering front and spine, abundantly illustrated - frontispiece color map of South America, many additional illustrations in b&w, Preface in English, text in Spanish, Spanish to English Vocabulario at rear. This copy with publishers promotional leaf tipped-in inside front cover. Dr. Navarro's history shows here and there an "anti-Yankee" animus ... This attitude is frequently found in Latin America, and will be especially useful to our students to know in advance what criticisms of our policy and attitude they must be prepared to meet. [This is likely why this text never caught on, and thus remains scarce.] ; 5-1/4" x 7-1/2"; 315 pp; Slight cover wear at corners and top/bottom of spine, spine gilt dulled, edgewear to tipped-in sheet, prior owner name in pencil on FFEP.
