A Fine First Printing of the First Edition in equally unblemished dust-jacket, signed by illustrator John Fulton; Michener's tale of Shenstone, an American journalist who is on assignment in Seville. He is to report on efforts the rancher Don Cayetano Mota is making to revive his once-proud line of bulls. Enriched by twenty-six drawings that capture the beauty of Seville and the excitement of the bullfight.
If you appreciate bullfighting, this is a quick enjoyable book. A spiritual overtone marks a conflict between a bull breeder devoted to the corrida as an artform and a gypsy torero who, in the view of the breeder, makes a mockery of the art. LIttle knowledge of bullfighting is required, but the reader must have an appreciation of bullfdighting as an artform, and not simply an example of animal brutality. The drawings, by one of the first non-Spanish or Mexican matadors, are an excellent accompaniment to this little story.
