First (and only?) edition. The poems are divided into two sections: ‘The Gardens of the Dauphin’ and ‘Sacred Spring’. Aside from these restful, often religious lyrics, Korolevich evidently had an interest in the cinema; he later published works on director Erich von Stroheim and silent-film actress Leatrice Joy.

OCLC locates copies at Harvard, Stanford, and Bayerische Staatsbibliothek only. Tarasenkov p. 188 (1000 copies); not in Kilgour.

Carambas. (I.a serie [– 3.a serie]).

First edition of the complete series of Moreno Villa’s Carambas. The poet and art historian José Moreno Villa was born in Malaga in 1887 (d. 1955). He belonged to the poetic generation intermediate between that of ’98 and that of ’27; his major influence was Juan Ramón Jiménez. His autobiography Vida en claro (Mexico City, 1944) is especially interesting for his years in the Residencia de Estudiantes, 1917-37, where he came into contact with Lorca and others of the Generación del 27. He emigrated to Mexico in 1937.
