Informe del Desarrollo de una Vivienda Experimental para el Proyecto de Colonizacion del Valle del Rio Aguan

[Tegucigalpa: Instituto de la Vivienda, 1969]. First Edition. Redevelopment plan, including extensive planning and architectural drawings, for the Aguan Valley of Honduras. Includes discussions of design, prefabrication, systems of construction, material and labor costs. The Bajo Aguan was colonized by banana companies around the turn of the 20th century, then abandoned, resulting in a near total collapse of the local economy (and associated infrastructure) by the mid-1930s. This re-colonization plan, begun in the early 1970s, returned the region to agricultural productivity and relative affluence, and is now considered one of the signal achievements of Honduran agrarian reform. A significant document in mid-century development and land reform movements in Latin America. One copy located in OCLC as of August, 2019, in Mexico. Oblong quarto (21x27cm.); publisher's grey decorative spiral-bound card wrappers; [12],35ll. & 11 plates; illus. throughout, text printed on rectos only. Wrappers a bit worn and dust-soiled, very minor biopredation to front free endpaper fore-edge, else Very Good, internally fine. Text entirely in Spanish.
