BORGES, Jorge Luis
Literaturas Germanicas Medievales
(Buenos Aires), Emece Editores, (1978). The first Emece edition, third edition overall, of this essay. Signed by Borges and inscribed by Maria Esther Vazquez, his collaborator on this volume. In addition to writing poetry and composing his unparalleled "ficciones," Borges was a multilingual scholar of literature and a translator, and his short volumes on literature -- English, American, and here Germanic -- are known for their succinctness and their depth. Minor foxing to the rear cover; very good in wrappers. [#035653] SOLD
