THREE PLAYS OF THE ARGENTINE: Juan Moreira / Santos Vega / The Witches' Mountain.

New York: Duffield and Company, 1920. First edition. Translated from the Spanish by Jacon S. Fassett, Jr. Herrera (1889-1956) went on to become a famous director and screenwriter in the 1940s and 1950s in Argentina (wiki), however the playwrights and their plays remain as obscure in the US today as they were in 1920 when G. Grafly writing for The Nation said, "However primitive the plays, they possess what our American drama strives in vain to discover, the soul of their native land," Spine ends rubbed and frayed, otherwise about very good, lacking the dust jacket, if issued in one. A scarce book, as most copies seem to have made their way to libraries. "They possess ... the soul of their native land"
