Notes

First collected edition of these poems, first printing, Jorge Luis Borges's copy with his signature on the title page. The copy was later passed to his brother-in-law, the Spanish poet and Ultraist Guillermo de Torre (1900-1971), with his illustrative ex-libris stamp to the first blank. This is one of several books with Borges's ownership signature or annotations that appeared in the Buenos Aires sale of Guillermo de Torre's library in 1980. Borges and Marechal were associates and correspondents, both members of the Martin Fierro group.
