Capillas Aldeanas

Buenos Aires: Republica Argentina, 1967. 101p., of which perhaps 83 are captioned b&w plates on semi-coated paperstock; 11 x 8.5 inch cloth boards in pictorial dj. Head of spine has sustained an unobtrusive bump, just perceptably affecting textblock; otherwise light edgewear to jacket, faintest signs of handling. This is one of 900 copies (of 1,000; there was a numbered subset) Publicaciones de la Academia Nacional de Bellas Artes, cuaderno 28.

Inscribed to one Bob Hamilton, datelined Buenos Aires 1968, and signed "Jorge," who might be Don Jorge Soto Acebal, president of the academia, named on copyright page. Wonderful small-scale architecture, preceeding by a century or so the California missions familiar to this cataloguer, which were larger and mostly klunkier.
