Evaristo Carriego
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.
