I'm a huge admirer of Latin American literature, and bask in the writings of Jorge Amado, Jose Saramago [Nobel Prize in Literature], Miguel Angel Asturias [Nobel Prize in Literature], Mario Vargas Llosa (Aside: I hope he will eventually win the Nobel prize), among others.
When I saw that this 1920 title was in the PD, I decided to format it and make it available for all of us who have Readers.
There are only four contributors, but three of the stories are by Machado De Assis - an incredible writer who has had a lasting influence. Listed below are the four writers:
Joaquim Maria Machado De Assis
José Medeiros E Albuquerque
I hope you enjoy it.

Great find! I also love Latin American literature. I have read a couple novels by Machado de Assis and I think he deserves a place among the greatest novelist of the 19th century.
