From page 1 of the 11 page photo gallery:

Maria Luisa Anido (1907-1996) recording artist, composer & arranger (13 pieces are in the catalog) who concertized and recorded duets with Miguel Llobet (1876-1937).

The autograph on the left is of Augusto Marcellino (1911-1973), a very notable guitar teacher from Sao Paolo who moved to Buenos Aires and was a student of Domingo Prat. He was a sheet music collector besides being a teacher and had amassed a collection of 8,000 pieces. Many of the rare pieces in the First Editions page & First Editions Continued are from his collection, and are now a part of the ever growing collections of FFSI. Augusto acquired this catalog in 1938.

Francisco Nuñez Rodriguez (1841-1919)
Guitarmaker & publisher who founded the business in Buenos Aires in 1870. He built guitars for
Juan Alais & Julio Sagreras.
Francisco learned lutherie from Salvador Ramirez, an Andalucian immigrant, who had been a disciple of Antonio Lorca of Malaga.

From page 2 of the 11 page photo gallery:

Lalyta Almiron (1914-1997) was such a well known child prodigy (17 years old at the time of the pressing), that, though she had yet to have published pieces, they saw to it that she was not to be left out of this promotion. Her father, Bautista Sinibaldo Almiron (1879-1932) has 14 pieces included in the catalog. Agustin Barrios was a frequent visitor to their home, & gave Lalyta lessons for 5 months in 1923.
