A Very Good plus copy in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with a short, closed edge tear at top edge of front panel and a touch of wear to the spine. The edges of the text block are lightly foxed. This collection of short stories first published in 1935 is responsible for the coining of the term "magical realism", and set the beginning of the movement. The stories except for one are fictionalized accounts of real criminals. The sources are listed at the end of the book, but Borges makes many alterations in the retelling—arbitrary or otherwise—particularly to dates and names, so the accounts cannot be relied upon as historical.
