BORGES, JORGE LUIS. (1899-1986). Argentinian author and poet; one of the century's leading writers of fiction. Signed book. (“J.L. Borges”). 195pp. 8vo., N.p., N.d. A fourth edition (February 1965) of the author’s Ficciones (Fictions), one of Borges' best-known works and on the Paris newspaper Le Monde’s list of the “100 Books of the [20th] Century.”

Remembered more for his short stories than his verse, Borges produced numerous collections of both in a career that spanned more than six decades. Experimental or traditional, these works celebrate his country and heritage, or explore the larger philosophical and theological themes that to Borges were no less fantastic than fiction itself. Borges served as director of the National Library in Buenos Aires, taught and lectured internationally and, in 1961, was the recipient, with Samuel Beckett, of the prestigious Formentor Prize. Curiously, Borges is one of the world’s great writers not to have been awarded the Nobel Prize in literature.

Boldly signed in blue ink on the free-front endpaper. Bound in green wrappers with overall age wear; uncut. Rare.
