Primeras Canciones.Madrid: Ediciones Héroe, 1936 Stock Code: 142876
A superb copyFirst edition, first printing. The poems are described in the preface as a "miraculously unpublished... preview of a more extensive and representative set," written in 1922, and "extremely important for the further development of Lorca's poetic world". Uncommon in such good condition.
Also issued in yellow boards, this work was published in January 1936, just a few months before his assassination at the hands of the Francoists, in August.
Octavo. Original light blue boards, titles in dark blue to spine and front board.
A hint of wear to spine ends, spine a touch sunned, the binding otherwise sharp, light toning to contents, else internally clean and fresh; a remarkably well preserved copy of a fragile publication.
