        Evaristo Carriego [Signed] A book about Old-time Buenos Aires

      New York: E. P. Dutton, 1984. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Fine copy of the first American edition, first printing (some tiny spots of foxing to the top of the closed page block), in a Fine dust jacket (some expected toning and two tiny rubs where the lower rear panel turns to the spine panel) SIGNED BY JORGE LUIS BORGES on the half-title in his later (blind) hand. First published in 1930, the book presents a collection of tightly-linked essays nominally built around Evaristo Carriego, a minor Argentine Poet who, in 1912, died at the age of 29. In spite of the book's title and apparent subject, the book is not as much about Carriego as it is about Borges himself and about old-time Buenos Aires. In consequence of this, the book is important for readers of Borges' works as it illuminates the landscape he chose for much of his subsequent writings and gives insights into Borges himself. Here we offer the first appearance of this important work in English translation, signed copies of which are absolute hen's teeth. An essentially Fine copy of a critical Jorge Luis Borges book, SIGNED BY JORGE LUIS BORGES. QUITE SCARCE.
