moreThe actual title of this rare antique Spanish book is 'Biblioteca Poetica, Poesias de Manual Acuna." Published by Garnier Hermanos in Paris, and sold in Puerto Rico, this is a presumed First edition from 1894. The text is Spanish.
Acuna, a famed Mexican poet, committed suicide in 1873 in Mexico City. He was only 24, and said to be despondent over a failed romance. Despite his youth, he left behind the poems found in this book, as well as plays and novels. One play is included here. The book is 384 pages. The gilded cover and spine of this small book is in the Art Nouveau style. Inside, there is an etched portrait of Acuna, under tissue. Also, there are several mementos from previous owners, left inside, as discovered.
This book is in generally fairly good condition, given its age. The pages are yellowed, but the words are sharp and undamaged. The first half-title page has a penciled name and a store name, rubber stamped. This page is foxed and there is some light foxing elsewhere. The book is intact. The back cover, featuring another Art Nouveau design, has two light white stains at the left top. .
Any fan of Art Nouveau design or Mexican writers will find this rare book a delight. If you can read Spanish, even more so. less
