Not in Besterman, but almost a bibliography. This exhibition catalogue for the Argentine Museo Historico Nacional has 4 sections: Newspapers and Journals, arranged by place (including "en el exilio"); Imprints (circulars, decrees, proclamations, etc.) arranged by period or event; Books and Pamphlets in chronological order, and Almanachs and Calendars, also chronologically. 803 consecutively numbered entries in all. Entries for part 1 give title, issues exhibited, brief publishing history, and a general characterization. Part 2 entries characterize the item and provide date, size and provenance (where possible), and those for 3 and 4 are standard descriptions. A sepia reproduction of a photographic plate depicting the printing press of the Niños Expósitos is loosely inserted under the front cover. Wrappers chipped, soiled; a little loose at the hinges.
