This project has two distinct elements. The first is an interactive map of the locations of Borges’s publisher, printers, booksellers, and places of employment from 1930 to 1951. The second part of the project is a descriptive bibliography of all of the books that Borges wrote, prologued, translated, or edited during the 1930s and 1940s. In light of the fact that there are virtually no extant publishers’ archives from the Argentine firms I have been studying for my research, I see this DH project as a way to give future scholars access to much of the raw data I created while researching for my first monograph and, hopefully, provide them with a resource to create projects of their own.
