Notes

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.
