First edition (first printing). A good copy in wrappers (paper covers) with some stains on the front cover. This copy is inscribed, "Fernando Charry Lara, gran poeta y gran amigo, mi nube - espacio: pintura - y mi reloj - tiemp: poesia - con cielo y tiempo de America. L. Cardoza y Aragon. Bogota, enero 1947." A nice inscription to the Colombian poet, who has underlined many passages and marked others in the margins. A nice association copy and an interesting example of marginalia.
