London: Jonathan Cape, 1986 - Octavo. Original dark blue boards, titles to spine in silver, top edge blue. With the dust jacket. Spine slightly rubbed and bumped at head. An excellent copy in the bright jacket. First UK edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the half-title, "Gabriel, '85." First published in the US earlier the same year, and originally published in Barcelona under the title Relato de un náufrago in 1970. From the library of the Irish book collector Dr Philip Murray. In his book, The Adventures of a Book Collector (2011), Murray writes: "I had heard that the Mexican postal system is one of the most unreliable anywhere in the world, but I decided to chance it and sent eleven books nearly a year went by without any further word. I was certain my luck had run out and I would never see my copies again . the return package had burst open and had had to be repacked. All the books were inscribed and the author had drawn various images in some of them, so it was worth the wait". [Attributes: Signed Copy]
