 File — Box: 1, Folder: 18

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].
