Prologue to "Mester de Juderia", 1940
Scope and Contents
Holograph manuscript by Jorge Luis Borges, Prologue to Carlos Grunberg's book "Mester de Juderia", titled and signed by Borges, in black ink on 3 leaves of gridded and 2 leaves of unlined paper, each leaf numbered by Borges.
It is an expansive text that exceeds the bounds of a prologue, being more of a political-literary essay which is unusual for Borges. It condemns European antisemitism and its Argentine "facsimile" [sic].
