First edition, first printing, of these dialogues, gathered by Montenegro to "expose in an articulate way Borges's thoughts about the events of the past years, and to rectify the fragmented or circumstantial interpretations that distorted his thought" (front flap). This copy bears the ownership inscription of Borges's controversial English-language translator, Norman Thomas di Giovanni.

Di Giovanni (1933-2017) met Borges during the latter's lectureship at Harvard in late 1967, beginning a period of several years' friendship and close collaboration resulting in a dozen titles translated by di Giovanni. Borges felt the creative debt of their collaboration to the extent that, at his own insistence, di Giovanni was awarded an equal share of the royalties.
