NEXÖ, Martin Andersen. Days in the Sun. New York, Coward Mc Cann, 1929.
8vo. Original cloth with illlustrated dust-wrappers; pp. [viii], 297; apart from light fraying to wrappers, a near-fine copy.
First American edition of this important work on Spain. The Icelandic author and his wife travelled in Spain for health reasons. However, what they observe is an atmosphere of an autocracy about to implode. Long before the Spanish Civil war the tensions are visible and something horrible is about to happen. The Nexös spent some time in Malaga, Cadiz, Seville, Cordoba, Loja, Ronda and Guadix.
