All except one appeared in the popular Spanish language and not in the more universal and scholarly Latin. Much has been written on the life and works of the highly controversial Fray Bartolomé de las Casas [1484-1566]. He was a 16th-century Spanish historian, social reformer and Dominican friar. He became the first resident Bishop of Chiapa, and the first officially appointed "Protector of the Indians." As noted in Wikipedia and elsewhere, his extensive writings, the most famous being "A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies" and "Historia de Las Indias," chronicle the first decades of colonization of the West Indies and elsewhere in the Americas, and focus particularly on the atrocities committed by the colonizers against the indigenous peoples.

Silabario de la ciudadanía de la mujer mexicana. Robles de Mendoza, Margarita. Talleres Tipográficos del Gobierno, 1932. Primera edición. 37 páginas numeradas. 19,5 x 14 cm. (7,5 x 5,5 pulgadas). En rústica. Un folleto en los envoltorios originales de color beige con letras en negro. Encuadernado con dos grapas metálicas. Tonificación por edad, especialmente para las páginas preliminares.

El folleto está encerrado en una cartera hechos a medida. Muy escasa en cualquier condición. Un trabajo histórico sobre los derechos de las mujeres y un documento influyente en la organización del trabajo, así como la teoría feminista. Margarita Robles de Mendoza (née Margarita Robles Díaz) (1896-1954) nació en la Ciudad de México. Asistió al Colegio Normal Metodista en Puebla y obtuvo su título profesional de maestra. Hacia 1921 viajó a California graduándose como psicóloga educacional en el Pomona College de Claremont. Inmediatamente después consiguió permiso del estado de California para ejercer como maestra. Estuvo casada con el abogado Salvador Mendoza, de quien se separó, sin obtener el divorcio. Tuvo un hijo, Guillermo Mendoza, nacido en 1924. En todos sus escritos aparece con su nombre de casada. Robles refiere haberse afiliado a la Revolución Mexicana desde 1913, estando encargada de distribuir propaganda y servir de enlace para enviar mensajes de agentes estacionados en Tepic. Robles de Mendoza se declara feminista, escritora, periodista, oradora y subraya no tener conexión con ninguna secta religiosa; era conocida como una buena conferencista y aguerrida luchadora por los derechos de la mujer. Su vida transcurrió entre Washington y Nueva York donde tuvo contacto con sufragistas de la talla de Doris Stevens (1892–1963) y Alice Paul (1885–1977). Escribió artículos para periódicos y revistas y fue autora de La evolución de la mujer en México, compilación de sus conferencias, editada en 1931, Ciudadanía de la mujer mexicana, en 1932 y el mismo año el Silabario de la ciudadanía de la mujer mexicana. No contamos con datos acerca de la fecha de su fallecimiento, pero Sáenz Royo menciona en su libro escrito en 1954 que en ese entonces acababa de fallecer.

Buenos Aires, Argentina Compañía impresora Argentina 1934 First Edition Disbound Good Plus Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall 
Una edición en español y no en inglés. This is a Spanish language publlication; it is not in English. This is NOT an ex library book. This is Volume One only; however there is no evidence of any subsequent volumes ever having been published. Purple leatherette spine with purple textured paper hardboards. Note that the spine has perished. For all practical purposes the book is disbound though at some point in time the boards were reattached from the inside using red bookbinding tape. The front board with black-stamped lettering and design. Both boards are sunned along the top. 15.75 x 12 inches. Despite the virtually disbound state of the book the text block itself retains its integrity. With li and 495 numbered pages. With 106 (cvi) full-page plates (láminas), as called for. Note that Plate XLVII actually consists of two full-page sheets. Many of the plates are full-color. Also with numerous B&W figures throughout. This is a presentation copy from the authors, with their inscription and signatures in a neat ink hand to the top of the half title page. With the purple oval publisher´s [or censor's?] stamp to the half title page. The full title page with a vertical semi-crease. Two pages found with marginal fingering marks: p. xxxiii and the reverse side of Plate XII. Plate LI, mysteriously, has a clean blue line running diagonally across the page. Else a very clean volume, and rather tight. Respectfully read. No dust jacket [as issued?]. Lacking the slipcase. Down-graded to a Good Plus copy on account of the disrepair of the binding. This is an exhaustive study and a stunning achievement, notable for the wealth of textual detail, the pictorial documentation, and the overall quality of the scholarship. With thanks to Baltimore Books for the following: "Landmark study of pre-Columbian archaeological discoveries in Chaco-Santiagueña, northwest of Melero, and northeast of Cordoba in western Argentina. The Wagner brothers made several trips to the region beginning in 1927, to discover vast amounts of remains (mostly polychrome earthenware and extensive stone and bone carvings) from past civilizations which had never before been documented." Para todos los propósitos prácticos la encuadernación se ha separado. Con li y 495 páginas numeradas. Con 106 láminas a toda página, como se pide. Muchos de los platos son a todo color. También con numerosas figuras en b&n en todas partes. Esta es una copia presentación de los autores, con su inscripción y las firmas. La página de título completo con un pliegue vertical. Dos páginas encontradas con marcas de digitación marginales. En conjunto se trata de un volumen muy limpio. Al carecer de la caja original. Abajo aumentado a un Buen Plus libro a causa del mal estado de la encuadernación. Este es un estudio exhaustivo y de un impresionante logro, destaca por la riqueza de detalles textual, la documentación fotográfica, y la calidad general de la beca. Se trata de un estudio de los descubrimientos arqueológicos precolombinos en Chaco-santiagueña, al noroeste de Melero, y noreste de Córdoba, en el oeste de Argentina. Los hermanos Wagner hicieron varios viajes a la región comienzo en 1927, para descubrir grandes cantidades de restos de barro (sobre todo policromada y piedra y hueso extensas tallas) de civilizaciones pasadas que nunca antes habían sido documentados.
