Other Inquisitions 1937-1952. Translated by Ruth L.C. Sims.
by Borges, Jorge Luis.

Publisher Information:
University of Texas, Austin : 1964.

A Fine copy in a Near Fine, unclipped dust jacket with a touch of age darkening to the spine. In this collection of Borges' essays he addresses the notions of journeys in time, place and thought from the times of Chinese Emperor Shih Huang Ti to the post World War II era of British airplane designer John Williams Dunne. He also considers these ideas in the context of the Ancient Persia of Omar Khayyam, Bertrand Russell, Dr. Americo Castro and the Avatars of the Tortise as well as the works of authors like Coleridge, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and others.
