        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.

For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America–and into another realm.

        Autograph Note Concerning The Jesus and Mary Chain's First Single "Upside Down"

      [London]. [1984]. Holograph note written in black ink on both sides of a single sheet of lined notebook paper. Approximately 150 words. [2]pp. Near fine with light vertical fold, tiny single tear at the foredge, and top edge with scattered remnant from being torn from a spiral notebook. Original Autograph Letter Signed from The Jesus and Mary Chain lead singer Jim Reid to Creation Record's Alan McGee, the man who would sign the band to their first record deal and become their manager, probably tendered with the master tape of the band's first demo/single ("Upside Down") in the hopes of gaining attention. According to Dave Thompson's book Alternative Rock: "They recorded another demo and mailed it to the then-tiny indy Creation Records, in the hope of getting a gig at label head Alan McGee's Living Room club. He was impressed, not only booking the band, but also issuing their first single." The note outlines the problems with equipment, financing, and engineers they experienced during the recording: "We didn't have very much money so we went into an 8 track studio and recording it live (more or less) but it sounded f*cking awful. The guitar sound was terrible and the whole thing was very tame. Mainly because of the stupid bastard engineer who didn't understand what we were looking for. ... Hope you like it. It is called 'Upside Down' and was written by Jim Reid and William Reid."
