Abstract: 
Summary: A double issue containing two short novels. Avecilla is about a family whose daughter wants to go to the theater. Instead of taking the family to the classical theater, the father takes them to a carnival, and later a local theater. Both result in vulgar experiences. The parents feel guilty later when their daughter is led astray by a guest. Carrocera, Labrador is about a middle-aged man who is promoted to senior lecturer of Agriculture in a nearby hamlet, but has no background in the subject area. He goes to stay with a family and their beautiful, young daughter at their farm in the countryside. The mother discourages the young girl from a relationship with the man almost twice her age, but she becomes pregnant with the professor's first child. Notes: Two short novels. Avecilla contains a bibliography and literary biography of the author. Carrocera, Labrador contains a literary biography of the author, a list of other volumes in the series, and announces the next upcoming publication. Note: A calendar from July 13, 1933 was tipped in between pages 86 and 87. The calendar included hours of sunrise, meridian, and sunset, moonrise, moon's zenith, and moonset. It also included information about the saints for that date. The reverse side had two epigrams from writers Lope de Vega and Quevedo.
