Three new books

We have published three new books by our imprint Contrarium. The first one is a bilingual Spanish-English edition of a selection of Horacio Quiroga’s short stories. Quiroga was a South American master of the short story genre. Many of the stories presented here are translated into English for the first time. Others are classics but presented here in a new, revised translation, next to the original Spanish text.

Another book we published is Hilaire Belloc’s “The Path to Rome“, the narration of his walking journey from Toul, France, to Rome in Italy. There are other editions of this book, but this one has the original illustrations rescanned in high resolution. We also added two short biographical sketches, one by his friend G. K. Chesterton and one by Jorge Luis Borges.

And the third book is Edward Burke’s “Bachelors’ Buttons“. Edward Burke is actually Winifred Boggs, an authoress of funny romantic comedies which were a success at the time. This book was originally published in 1914 and was out of print.

We also have an illustrated anthology of stories for children on the way, but it may take a little bit more time to finish that one. In the meantime, you can check our Dark Fairy Tales collection.
