By Garcia Lopez, M.

Madrid: Libreria de Luis Santos, Editor, 1922. Paperback. xvi, 350, viii, 400p., illustrated with vignette wood-engravings, tables and stats in the text. First edition paperbound set, 7.5x5 inch printed wraps complete in two matching volumes, untrimmed sewn signatures. A handled, much-referred-to set quite soiled with (we think) clays of various sorts, every leaf in both volumes opened (a bit roughly, no disasters), both parts equally edgeworn with short tears and splits. Illustrations are utilitarian, none on inserted paperstock or in color. Threads are holding, textblock reasonably sound, a handleable set if largely outmoded. Last cautionary, vol.2 is slightly wormed, with a few longish hair's-breadth tunnels. Industrial techniques to mass-produce tableware, tobacco pipes, some glass, ceramics used in heavy industry and much more, with technical terminology for minerals and clays; illustrations show both small and giant machines, a perfect rebuke to your pedal-driven pottery-wheel/clay-coil green environmentalist friend.

To All Beta Sigma Phis-- Greetings: [caption title; with membership card laid in]

By Ryan, Jack, director of crested valuables; Beta Sigma Phi, sorority

Kansas City, MO: the sorority, 1941. Pamphlet. Unpaginated, about 20p., multiple b&w illustrations on each page, most shrunk to fit the small pamphlet format: 6x4.5 inch stapled blue wraps embossed with indecipherable lettering and device. Staples are rusted with a little migration, front cover has a light vertical crease, otherwise clean and sound. Laid in, International Membership card, unsigned, for one Jessie Cotton of McCook Nebr., expires 7-30-41. Per Wikipedia, BSP is a "non-academic sorority" founded 1931 in Kansas, has 200,000 members. Headquarters city presumed from info on the member's card, ditto surmised date of publication; no such info in the catalogue itself. Lockets, broaches, rings, on and on, the variety extends even to baby spoons. A plethora of compact-types leads readily to cigarette cases including a wooden one that holds two standard packs. "For some time the privilege of supplying you with crested valuables has been entrusted to a large jewelry firm on a contract basis. Now B S P has taken over this responsibility itself and has retained Mr Jack Ryan to head the department
