[28], 134, [10] pp., 15 folding leaves of brands, first leaf with illustration of round-up and branding on the pampas. Folio, original unbound signatures in original leather folder.  Fine in publisher’s slipcase.

     Limited edition (500 copies), facsimile of the original edition (1830) of an exceedingly rare brand book, a cornerstone book for the cattle industry in Latin America, and an important, early milestone in the history of Argentine printing and lithography. Cf. Palau 56523 (citing first edition). The 1830 edition was lithographed by Bacle, who with Italian Carlos Risso introduced lithography to Argentina. Supposedly, the original book took five years to produce and secured Bacle’s fame in Argentine printing.  The book illustrates and lists brands, names of ranches, locations, owners, dates of recording, etc. Accompanying the facsimile is a scholarly essay by Isodoro J. Ruiz Moreno. ($250-500)
