GARCÍA LORCA, Federico.POETA EN NUEVA YORK por ... Con Cuatro Dibujos Originales. Poema de Antonio Machado. Prólogo de José Bergamín.
Col. Arbol, Ed. Séneca (Tall. Gráf. de la Ed. Cultura), México 1940. 17.7x24. 187pp. 2h. 4 plates with illustrations by Lorca. Wrappers. Top margen of the front cover slightly darkened, but potherwise near fine. The Mexican edition of Lorca's postumous masterpiece was intended to be the first, but finally came out a few weeks after the New York bilingual edition. Lorca handed over the manuscript to his friend José Bergamín for publication in his Cruz y Raya collection, shortly before leaving Madrid for Granada to celebrate his name day with his family. A week later the Civil War broke out, Lorca was soon arrested by the fascist forces in Granada and shot. The treasured manuscript accompanied Bergamín to his exile in Mexico, where he set up his new publishing house, Séneca. The poems had been written during Lorca's stay in New York and New England 1928 to 1929. Federico was notoriously slow in publishing his books of poetry and this had taken eleven years; it contains some of his finest verse.
