Spain (with handwritten postcard)
Salvador De Madariaga's reworking of his earlier title to include the Spanish Civil War
First edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 22.5 × 15cm, 509pp.
This copy comes with a handwritten postcard from Madariaga addressed from Oxford to Jose Castillejo, and sent from Oxford in 1942.
Madariaga's reworking of his 1930 book on Spain, with a long new section added to cover the seismic events in Spain with the Spanish Civil War, Franco and dictatorship.
The author was a Spanish diplomat and pacifist. He went into exile to England during the Spanish Civil War where he was a vocal opponent of Franco. He died in Oxford in 1978.
The book itself is in good condition, a little bumped to the corners and some spots of foxing to the page edges but it is in sound shape. The dustwrapper is chipped to the edges and a little grubby but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
