NY, Dutton, 1976. The first American edition of this collection of fictional "essays" by the persona created by Borges and his longtime friend Adolfo Bioy-Casares, "Honorio Bustos Domecq." Borges and Bioy-Casares collaborated on a number of works, two of which were published under the Bustos Domecq pseudonym in the 1940s. Signed by Borges. Shallow edge sunning to boards; near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a couple of nicks to the crown. [#029970] $750
Buenos Aires, Gleizer, 1930. Borges' seventh book, a biography of Buenos Aires street poet Carriego. Attractively rebound in gilt-stamped quarter leather and marbled paper boards, with original wrappers (pink issue) bound in. Previous owner name on first blank; foxing to text, mostly confined to the outer pages; a very good copy. While the print run for this title is not indicated in the bibliography, earlier Borges titles had been printed in numbers ranging from 300 to 500 copies, and this likely had an extremely small printing as well.
