Note I'm pleased to report that our copy is the Kraus copy. Unfortunately, we have spotty accession records for that period, so I can't find the purchase record. Our copy of the Kraus catalogue is not marked up, but we bought a lot from them in the period.

Please let me know if I can assist you in any other way.

With all best wishes,

Dear Colleagues,

As part of the ongoing work on the PhiloBiblon project I am trying to track down a copy
of the 1499 edition of Enrique de Aragón's Los doze trabajos de Hercules offered for sale by H. P. Kraus in his cat. 54 (1950), pp. 13-14. You have a copyand I would be grateful if you could tell me whether your copy came directly or indirectly from Kraus. It should be easy to identify if it is the Kraus copy, since it has the arms of the marqués de Caracena on the cover and green silk ties..
