La Biblioteca de Autores Españoles desde la formación del lenguaje hasta nuestros días. Historiadores primitivos de Indias. Colección dirigada é ilustrada. Por Don Enrique De Vedia. Tomo Primero y Tomo Segundo [Tomo Primero (1858) and Tomo Segundo (1862)], Each Signed; Together With an Autograph Love Poem Signed
Madrid: M. Rivadeneyra - Impresor - Editor, 1858;1862. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good + or better copy of the first edition, first printing, bound in elegant tree calf, INTIMATELY SIGNED BY VALLE-INCLAN on the half-title of each Volume to Luisa Díaz Sáenz Valiente. (Each Volume has rubbing to the outer board corners, the rear joint of Tomo Primero appears to have been expertly repaired, and Tomo Segundo shows a little scuffing to the spine. Tomo primero lacks the first front free endpaper, and a prior owner has darkened what appears to be a prior bookseller's stamp from each half- title --- neither the pastedowns nor the pages show any signs of being ex-library.) Tomo primero is signed "A mi Princesa / x x x / Valle-Inclán" and Tomo segundo is SIGNED, INSCRIBED, DATED, and PLACED BY VALLE-INCLAN as follows: "x x x / A Mi Princesa [underscored twice by Valle-Inclan] / x x x / Valle-Inclán / 11-V-1910 / Buenos Aires." Dramatist, novelist, and a member of the Spanish Generation of 98, Valle-Inclan was a Spanish Literary giant whose works influenced later generations of Spanish dramatists. The books contain Valle-Inclan's history of the conquest of the Aztecs by Hernando Cortes and the conquest of the Incas by Francisco Pizarro González. TOGETHER WITH an ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPH LOVE POEM BY VALLE INCLAN, loosely laid in to Tomo primero and written on a single sheet of paper titled by him "Para Señorita Luisa Díaz Sáenz Valiente" which begins as follows: "Hoy me canta en el fecho tu recuerdo, Argentina,/ Con il canto de una alondra matutina...." (The poem is in Near Fine condition and shows some fold lines and a short closed split where the folds meet in the center of the paper.) [As best we can determine, the Poem has never been published.] Luisa Díaz Sáenz Valiente was a prominent journalist in Argentina and married to a prominent Argentinean lawyer and diplomat. In 1910, Valle Inclan and his wife traveled for 6 months through Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Bolivia, and it appears that he particularly enjoyed his time in Argentina. Having a notable Provenance, these items were owned by actor Jack Palance and each bears the bookplate from the 2006 sale of his Personal Property. A remarkable copy of this two-volume work, INTIMATELY SIGNED IN EACH VOLUME BY RAMON MARIA DEL VALLE-INCLAN, TOGETHER WITH AN ORIGINAL LOVE POEM FROM VALLE-INCLAN loosely laid in to one of the Volumes. Books signed by Valle-Inclan are exceedingly scarce to the market and original signed Poems written and signed by Valle-Inclan are rare. A collection-distinguishing set and QUITE RARE.
