Tuya, Other Verses and Translations from Jose Marti
New York: J.E. Richardson 1898. First edition. Octavo. 75, [5]pp., frontispiece portraits of Charles and Marti. White cloth gilt. Contemporary owner's name repeated on front and rear fly leaves, slight soiling, a nice, near fine copy. Poems of the war in Cuba by a woman about whom little is known (the contemporary New York Times review speculates that she is Cuban), but probably more importantly this meager translation (about a dozen pages) is one of first translations of Marti's verse into English, just three years after his death. Marti, a Cuban patriot-poet was killed in battle trying to gain Cuban independence from Spain, and is considered one of the great Latin-American intellectuals, a modernist poet, and a Cuban national hero. Very uncommon.
