Catalogue of the book dept. of a Buenos Aires business called The South American Stores, Gath & Chaves Ltd. for 1,000's of current titles. Listings include: much art and literature (emphasizing classics); no children's category except for school and educational books; serious works on natural science, psychology etc., often of an introductory nature, and historical and some political works, but relatively little on current/controversial topics. Many titles in French and English. Some modern customers would find this all deplorably primitive: no cat calendars, celebrity bio's, swimsuit issues, pop-psych tomes, or messages from UFO's. And how did they dare offer all those foreign-language books without a proper, correct multicultural section? Wrappers soiled, rather loose.
