C. Maré, with inscription "Limpia, Fija y da Esplendor" ; damp stain on lower portion and gutter of title page ; fore-edge in red ; stamps of the Ministerio de Relaciones Interiores y Esteriores (de España) throughout ; a rare copy of a book from the library of Roland A. Steiner (1840-1906), a Georgia physician, planter, folklorist, and amateur archaeologist, whose excavation of the Etowah mounds near Macon, Georgia, form the core of the largest collection of artifacts from a single individual to have been donated to the Smithsonian ; with his bookplate ; "During the latter half of the 19th century and into the early part of the 20th century, Roland collected a massive quantity of prehistoric artifacts from areas throughout Georgia; including Mound C at the Etowah Mound site near Cartersville, Georgia and sites in Burke, Columbia, Floyd, Hancock, and several other counties. He became a member of the Georgia Historical Society on July 7, 1886, the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1899 and the Society of American Folklore in the same year. In his lifetime, Roland collected more than 100,000 Native American relics from Georgia and South Carolina. Throughout the 1890s and early part of the 1910s, Steiner sent approximately 78,000 artifacts including copper axes, copper headdresses, conch shell cups and gorgets, pearl beads, pottery vessels, pottery statuettes, and other artifacts made of polished and chipped stone to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. His private collection at the Smithsonian is the largest private collection in the museum. Steiner also has collection of artifacts located at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, New York and the Field Museum in Chicago, Illinois." ; "Dr. Steiner has been, for about three years, at intervals, making deposits of aboriginal implements and objects in the National Museum. His collection amounts now to approximately 75,000 objects. They have been gathered by him in eastern Georgia, principally in Columbia and Burke Counties, though there is a very important collection made by himself from the Etowah Mounds in Bartow County...Not the least inconsiderable portion of Dr. Steiner’s collection, nor that of least value, is the result of his own excavation at the Etowah Mounds or, as they have been known, the Tumlin Mounds on the plantation of Col. Tumlin, Etowah Creek, Bartow County. These are probably the most renowned mounds of which we know, and have produced the rarest and most curious objects... It appears to me of the highest necessity that we should retain the objects from this mound that belong to Dr. Steiner, to the end that they may supplement the collection of Prof. Thomas. I would consider it almost an irreparable loss, one not to be calculated in dollars and cents, if the objects belonging to Dr. Steiner should be taken away and the collection from the Etowah Mound broken up. The purchase of this collection from Dr. Steiner will materially facilitate the complete excavation of the Etowah Mounds and insure to the Museum the possession of their riches in its entirety."--Thomas Wilson, Curator, Division of Prehistoric Anthropology, January 19, 1898. ; contributors included Nicasio Juan Gallego (1777-1853), Francisco Maria Raynouard, Taver John Nicols, Marie-Charles-Joseph Pougens (1755-1833), Jacob Pontusson De la Gardie, Robert Southey (1774-1843), Guy Arnault, Felix Torres Amat (1772-1857), Joseph del Castillo, Jose Maria Zuaznavar y Fracia, Alberto Rodríguez de Lista y Aragón (1775-1848), Romanillos Benito Ortega, Manuel López Cepero y Ardila (1778-1858), and others ; G, scarce

Very Good. xvii, 241 pp. : illustrated ; 22 cm. ; OCLC: 28154362 ; stiff textured beige paper wrappers ; remains of price label on front cover ; creases on front cover ; "The writers ... were born near the Mexican border and have been closely associated throug hout their lives with all classes of border Mexicans. In their youth, the writers learned the Spanish language as spoken along the border and in college took up Spanish as a major study. At this point, they found that, although in all Latin Americ an sections 'Spanish is Spanish' with its basis in the Spanish of Spain, there are many and varied localisms of hard-to-trace origin in the language used along the Texas and Mexican borders, indeed, more such localisms than are found in the language of other areas. They soon discovered that one who depends solely upon literary Spanish can scarcely converse with Mexicans of the border and rural areas of Texas because of the many slang expressions and localisms which have made this Spanish almo st a separate language....Our purpose in compiling this book is to assist in the everyday activities of ranchers and farmers, most of whom employ Spanish-speaking people part or all of the time." ; VG
