My best book collecting score last month (besides the Walser book) was finding 14 issues of Review: Latin American Literature and Arts for $.60 each. I seem to have the complete issues of this quarterly for 1972 and 1973, most issues from 74 & 75, and one each from 76 & 77.
This issue focuses on Jose Lezama Lima's Paradiso, available in a revised translation from the great publisher Dalkey Archive. It features drawings throughout by Leonel Gongora (not much info on the web about him). He drew the cover image.
I plan to post a lot about these gems as I work my way through them.
