Santiago de Chile, Imprenta del Independiente, 1866. - 4°, original pink printed wrappers (faded, slight defect in upper inner corner of front wrapper; minor defects to spine). In very good condition. Author's signed presentation inscription on front wrapper below his name: "Al Rdo P. José Leon // su discípulo // E. del Solar." 27 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. This appears to be the author's first separately published work. His poetry had appeared in a student anthology in 1860. The letter to the Colombian poet Arcesio Escobar (Medellín, 1832-at sea between St. Thomas and New York of yellow fever aboard the Ocean Queen, 1867) occupies pp. [3]-10. It discusses theories of religious poetry, contains references to sixteenth-century Spanish literature (declaring that Fr. Luis de Leon was the author's favorite), includes references to and quotes from Andrés Bello, all in the context of the war between Chile and Spain, and the recent bombardment of Valparaiso by Spanish warships. Escobar's Fe, esperanza i caridad: poesias relijiosas had been published in Quito, 1865; his Carta al Señor Enrique del Solar was published in Guayaquil, 1866.The Jesuit-educated Solar (1844-1893), poet, novelist, and parliamentary deputy, was the son of the Chilean poetess Mercedes Marín de Solar. In addition to other works of poetry and prose, he edited Poesías de la señora Doña Mercedes Marín de Solar, published in 1874.*** Not located in Briseño. Not in Palau.
