(BORGES, Jorge Luis). WOOLF, Virginia
Orlando. Una Biografia
Buenos Aires, Sur, (1937). Borges' translation of Woolf's 1928 epic transgender classic. Sur's founder, Victoria Ocampo, had found a friend and kindred spirit in Woolf and had Borges translate several of Woolf's works for publication, even before Sur published Borges' own works (El Jardin de Senderos Que Se Bifurcan in 1942 and Ficciones in 1944). This copy is signed by Borges on the title page. From the library of Donald Yates, Borges' translator and longtime friend. Pages browned; first blank detached; cocked, with wear to edges and joints. A very good copy in wrappers, with distinguished provenance. Uncommon, especially signed, and particularly with a good literary association. [#033000] SOLD
