"In vain, great-hearted Kublai, shall I attempt to described Zaira, / city of high bastions. I could tell you how many steps make up / the streets rising like stairways, and the degree of the arcades' curves, / and what kind of zinc scales cover the roofs; / but I already know this would be the same as telling you nothing. / The city does not consist of this, but of relationships / between the measurements of it space and the events of its past: ..."Signed in white pencil, upper right.
