515; and Law, 156. It is to be noted that in these totals are in-
cluded a number of items published in 1935, now appended as
addenda after each section. However, the 1935 items included in
the addenda are relatively few.
The general editor and the individual editors of the various
sections deserve much credit for the greater thoroughness with
which they have covered their respective fields. In the present form
and stage of development the Handbook of Latin-American Studies
is in fact an indispensable tool to all students of Spanish-American
culture. The section on anthropology is particularly full and most
useful. It has been enlarged to include not only anthropology,
but also the archaeology, ethnology, and physical anthropology
of South America. The present reviewer notes with satisfaction

To the much more relatively complete bibliography of 1936
publications in the various humanistic fields there has been added
a group of special articles. These are not only of interest to the
general student, but are invaluable to those planning to undertake
research studies in Latin-America. This is true particularly with

by Roscoe R. Hill, "A Guide to Colonial Materials in the Archives
of Guatemala" by Robert S. Chamberlain, "El Archivo Arzobispal
de Lima" by Ruben Vargas Ugarte, S. J., and "A Guide to the
Material on the Music of the Caribbean Area."
The present volume proves that the experimental stage in the
production of a Guide to Latin-American studies is passed and
that the committee on Latin-American studies has succeeded in
working out the organization of an annual bibliography that will
prove most useful to all students and scholars in the field, and
an invaluble tool to institutional libraries.
