Notes

First edition, first printing. With a signed presentation inscription from the author to the philosopher and essayist Ramiro de Maeztu on the verso of the front wrapper: "A Ramiro de Maeztu, mi devoción por su obra maravillosamente hispana, cerradamente española. R. E. Scarpa... Stgo de Chile. Dic. 1935" ("To Ramiro de Maeztu, my devotion to his marvellously Hispanic, strictly Spanish work. R. E. Scarpa"). Maeztu (1874-1936), like García Lorca, was killed the subsequent year by partisans in the Spanish Civil War, uttering the famous last words "You do not know why you kill me, but I know why I'm dying: For your children to be better than you!". A superb Spanish association copy, and a rare work even ignoring the provenance: OCLC records only two copies, in Mount Holyoke College in the US, and the Biblioteca Nacional de Chile.
