VALLEJO, César.ESPAÑA APARTA DE MÍ ESTE CÁLIZ. 15 Poemas por... Profecía de américa (Palabras preliminares por Juan Larrea.)
Lucero, Ed. Séneca, México 1940. 17.5x24. 93pp. 5h. Portrait by Picasso. Wrappers. The story of the first edition of this collection of grief stricken verse inspired by the Spanish Civil War has become one of the legends of 20th century bibliography: it was printed by Manuel Altolaguirre in 1939 on a press set up in the Catalan Abbey of Montserrat a few kilometres from the front, using paper manfactured from the uniform of a captured fascist general. With the exception of four copies discovered in the abbey in 1983, the edition was totally destroyed. This second edition, published the following year in Mexico by the exiled poet José Bergamín is also very rare. Slight darkening in the corner of the front cover, but otherwise near fine.
