Description

A distinguished copy of this Peruvian’s first book of prose: an unrecorded issue on rag paper with presentation inscription to his father. Vallejo recovered the book after his father’s death in 1924 and made extensive holographic revisions for a planned revised edition. However, the project was delayed by 70 years on account of Vallejo’s untimely death in 1938 and the disappearance of this revised copy during the Nazi occupation of France.
