Juan Belmonte: Killer of Bulls

In 1937 Leslie's interest in Spain was evident when he translated this book into English and wrote an intro. Illustrated with photographs and drawings. Because of an injury, Belmonte could not move out of the way, so developed the technique of standing his ground and using the cape to deflect the bull, which is nowadays the standard method.
