NP: ND (1948). 171pp - NP: ND (1948). 171pp. The first appearance in English of Botto's celebrated work, translated by his friend Fernando Pessoa in 1933, but first published in this edition. Botto had moved to Brazil in 1947 and attempted to support himself with his writings, but struggled financially. He may have financed the production of the book himself, as it bears no indication of a publisher. Warmly inscribed by Botto to Francisco Luiz Ribiero "O Poeta mais concreto de Sao Paulo, o maior e o mais verdadeiro, apesar dos seus poemas serem poucos." There is no indication of the size of this printing, but it was undoubtedly small and the book is quite rare (despite Botto's amusing notation that this is copy 12527.) There are several simple line drawings illustrating the text, including the frontispiece, which appear to be by Almada Negreiros. Very good in original lightly spotted wrappers. Inscribed on the endpaper by the author to Francisco Enrique Lopez. Light spotting to endpapers, but a very good copy otherwise. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
