BORGES, Jorge Luis
"El doctor Francisco Laprida..."
(n.p.), (n.p.), 1954. A manuscript poem by Borges -- "Poema Conjetural," originally published in his 1943 collection Poemas -- illustrated with an original pencil drawing by prominent Argentine artist Santiago Cogorno. 9-1/4" x 13-1/4". Signed by Borges and Cogorno. Borges was famous by the early 1950s, but his literary success did not translate into economic well-being. He conceived the plan to capitalize on his fame, and that of his friends and fellow artists, by creating small manuscripts which could be sold for extra money. A rare collaboration between two of the great Argentine artists of their time. Fine. [#017985] SOLD
