276 pages, 16 plates, cloth, ex-library with usual library markings, some shelf-wear, text very good. Translated by Eden and Cedar Paul. From the Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition: "Joanna (Joanna the Mad) , 1479-1555, Spanish queen of Castile and León (1504-55) , daughter of Ferdinand II and Isabella I. She succeeded to Castile and León at the death of her mother. Ferdinand II briefly assumed the regency until he was replaced by Joanna's ambitious husband, Philip I. After Philip's death (1506) , Ferdinand again assumed the rule, for Joanna had by this time become quite insane. At Ferdinand's death (1516) Joanna's elder son, Charles (later Holy Roman Emperor Charles V) , was proclaimed joint ruler of Castile with his mother. Joanna spent the rest of her life in the castle of Tordesillas. The pretense that she was not actually insane was sometimes used by the discontented, including Juan de Padilla, to justify revolts against the "foreign" ruler, Charles.

14 RENNERT, HUGO ALBERT The Spanish stage in the time of Lope de Vega.
New York Hispanic Society of America 1909 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good 
Xiv,635 pages, cloth, ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. 1st edition. From the preface: "It is to the late Dr. Cristobal Perez Pastor's patient and unwearying researches that we are especially indebted. The mass of material which he has brought to light will always form the foundation upon which others must build. For nearly a century, or since the appearance of Pellicer's work upon the Spanish stage in 1804 (excepting the very important matter contributed by Schack in the Nachtrage to his Geschichte der dramatischen Literatur und Kunst in Spanien, 1854), little of importance has been done by scholars in this field until very recent times. About ten years ago Perez Pastor began investigations in the Archives of Madrid and other Spanish cities that have yielded the richest results, and to these the present volume is greatly indebted."

18 Walker, Ann and Larry To the Heart of Spain : Food and Wine Adventures Beyond the Pyrenees
Berkeley, Berkeley Hills Books 1997 0965377407 / 9780965377409 Softcover Very Good 
319 pages, pictorial wrappers, very good. From Booklist: "As much a travel guide as a cookbook, this one demonstrates the truth of the old platitude that the way to a person's heart is through the stomach. Ann and Larry Walker have traversed Spain's length and breadth to produce a compendium of Spanish cooking as found in each of that country's provinces. Their encounters with natives give the recipes a decidedly human face. The authors make a cogent case for the integrity and uniqueness of Spanish cooking, and they believe it to be much more practical than the more celebrated cooking of Spain's northern neighbor, France. The Walkers have taken pains to be sure that their recipes are accessible and easily reproducible in the American kitchen. They eschew products available only in Spain, and their multiple recipes for the renowned paella ask only that the dish be cooked in an authentic paella pan for best results. " SR3186A ; 319 pages
