¶ Finely printed by hand with hand-set type on Warren's Olde Style paper. A collection of poems written in Spanish by Smith, published under an obvious pseudonym. The work is sometimes miscatalogued as a translation of poems from the Spanish, which is incorrect but the book is extremely scarce and we can forgive such errors, certainly considering that some of the poems in Smith's 1956 poetry volume SPELLS AND PHILTRES (and SELECTED POEMS, 1971) were listed as being translated from the Spanish of "Clerigo Herrero"
