1 Cardona-Hine, Alvaro Agapito The Poignant tale of a Boy's Unfolding World Fine 1st ED/HB/DJ
NY Charles Scribners 1969 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
Lovely book in bright yellow cloth with red patchwork style design on frt board, corners and spine ends sharp, text flawless. 117 pp. Unclipped vividly illustrated dj in new mylar shows perfectly, no tears, chips or color loss anywhere. DJ illust by Marian Ebert, no illust within the text. Uncommon title in gift quality condition. From the front flap: Agapito is a discovery - unusual in form as well as in content. The story of a boy in his seventh year, it immediately involves the reader's senses, both physical and emotional. In a highly affecting narrative consisting of a series of short, vital episodes - independent yet interconnected - the author has created an evocative "dialogue" between the boy and his father's peon, Agapito, a vividly drawn man closely attached to earth and life. Although Agapito remains the silent partner in the exhange, the boy observes and expresses an extraordinary range of experiences - the taste of bread and sugar, the death of a little girl, the absurdities and ironies in man and nature. While Agapito embraces joy and elation as well as deep sorrow, it is above all a transcending affirmation. Books are cleaned and mylar changed on dj's whenever possible. We gift wrap every book at no charge. Offered from a five star, full-time professional bookseller and proud members of the Virginia Antiquarian Booksellers Association. Satisfaction guarenteed.
