About this Item

"There has long been a need for a complete volume of English translation of Jose Rizal's poems. The language question has alienated Rizal from the present generation of Filipinos. We are glad that Prof. Alfredo S. Veloso has finally filled this need. Rizal's complete poems are now within reach of our English-speaking generation. Translations, of course, can never take the place of the original poems. But they can be utilized as stepping stones toward the original work. Prof. Veloso's translations of Rizal's 39 poems is one of the contributions of the Institute of Arts and Sciences, Far Eastern University, to the Rizal Centennial Celebration. We are certain that it will bring Rizal closer to our people." [Alejandro R. Roces, Dean of the Institute] 148 pages, Spanish (sometimes translated from Tagalog) left, English right, with line illustrations, and three halftones at end -- a sheet music facsimile of "A Orillas del Pasig, Letra del Dr. Jose Rizal, Musica del Miro B. Echegeyen" -- which is suspect, and has not been translated; plus XI pages prefatory matter; illustrated endpapers. Covers are grimed and show some roughness; endpapers have glue shadows at hinges, and a 1/4" insect (?) excavation at lower edge; text is strong and clean, though browning slightly at edges. Laid in are 5 type-written sheets, Errata. Size: 9 1/4" Tall. Bookseller Inventory # 203624
