About This Item

Madrid, Biblioteca Renacimiento, 1911.. FIRST EDITION. 8¡, recent burgundy half morocco, spine lettered in gilt; original illustrated wrappers bound in. Browned; half-title detached but present; a few short marginal tears (without loss); final leaves detached but present. Uncut and partly unopened. In good to very good condition. 296 pp., (1 l. advertisement). *** FIRST EDITION of this "philosophical travelogue" which stands as one of Unamuno's "most influential books" (Ward). A second edition appeared in Madrid, 1930, and a third in Buenos Aires, 1941. In a series of interconnected essays written from 1906 to 1909, based on his journeys through the Iberian Peninsula, Unamuno reflects on literature, history, politics and thought. Chapter headings include contemporary Portuguese literature and specific writers (e.g., EugŽnio de Castro, Teixeira de Pascoaes, Guerra Junqueiro and Ea de Queir—s), plus specific towns (Aveiro, Braga, Guarda, and Alcobaa). In Spain, he comments on Barcelona, Guadalupe, Yuste, Avila de los Caballeros, Aitzgorria, Galicia and Trujillo, as well as Gran Canaria and Tenerife. Miguel de Unamuno y Jugo (Bilbao, 1846-Salamanca, 1936), philosopher, essayist novelist, poet, and playwright, is one of the leading figures in Spanish literature of the twentieth century. He was also a Lusophile - probably the leading Spanish connoisseur in his time of Portuguese literature, culture, and history. *** Palau 344117. Ward, Oxford Companion to Spanish Literature pp. 582-3.
