Leopoldo Lugones.Buenos Aires: Editorial Troquel, 1955 Stock Code: 129522
First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed by Borges on the title page, "Para Vicente Barbieri, afectos y un abrazo, Jorge Luis Borges". Barbieri (1903-1956) was a notable Argentine poet, posthumously awarded the National Prize for Poetry after his early death from tuberculosis. In this work Borges addresses the legacy of another Argentine poet, Leopold Lugones (1874-1938), like Borges a master of short stories, and a pioneer of fantasy and science fiction writing in Argentina. In author, subject, and recipient, this copy thus carries an excellent tripartite Argentine literary association.
Octavo. Original wrappers, printed in black, white, and orange.
Extremities lightly rubbed, an excellent copy.
