"Eça de Queiroz (1843 - 1900) is the great Portuguese novelist of the nineteenth century -- not an Iberian Balzac, like Galdos but, rather, a moistened Stendhal, altogether more tender, and, despite his reformist opinions, without theories."
--V. S. Pritchett, from his 1970 "Iron Comedian"

Endnote discovery: note to page 268 of Collected Works II by Jarry:
"Jarry wrote of God being symbolized in the triangle of an 'upside-down kite' engraved by Dürer. (cf. Perhinderion, 2, OC I, p. 998)."
Can anyone direct me to this engraving?
