Notes: A family copy of this notable rarity. The British Library only on WorldCat, though the Borges collection at the University of Virginia also records copies. This copy has superb provenance, originating in the collection of the artist Norah (Leonor Fanny) Borges – daughter of the author, and sister to Jorge Luis Borges. It later passed into the collection of Borges' translator Norman Thomas di Giovanni.
