Notes

First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed by Borges and his co-author on the half-title, "Augosto 1953, A Gilda, profetizándole mucha felicidad, Jorge Luis Borges" and "A Gilda con carino autentico y eterno agradecimiento, Margot Guerrero." We have not been able to identify the recipient, but the double presentation and warm wording certainly suggest a meaningful association. Presentation copies of this key Borges book on Hernandez's Martín Fierro, the 19th-century "gauchesque" epic poem considered the Don Quixote of Argentina, are very scarce.
