LA MUERTE Y LA BRÚJULA (DEATH AND THE COMPASS)
Buenos Aires: Emecé Editores, 1951. First Edition. New. Item #824
First Printing. Near Fine in illustrated self-wrappers. Tiny owners name stamp to half-title and title page, and aside from some very discreet touch up to the black near the crown of the spine, a bright, Fine copy with the text remarkably unfoxed. A scarce volume collecting nine stories by the Latin American master, including 'Death and the Compass,' 'Funes the Memorious,' and 'The Garden of Forking Paths.' The title story was the basis for the 1992 Alex Cox film starring Peter Boyle, Miguel Sandoval, and Christopher Eccleston. An exemplary copy, and scarce thus.
