Gabriel García Marquez
GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ "The Autumn of the Patriarch" SIGNED FIRST PRINTING
Harper & Row, Publishers, 1976. First Edition, First Printing. This is a copy of the first U.S. edition, first printing (with number row ending in "5" and "First U.S. Edition" slug present. Subsequent printings removed the "First U.S. Edition" slug). Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine in archival protective cover. SIGNED with a lengthy inscription in Spanish by author and Nobel Prize winner Gabriel García Marquez on the second blank page. There is no conventional plot, only chronologically scrambled episodes that take the protagonist General from a deformed, charismatic stud into a mindless blood beast, imprisoned on the throne of illusions his very power creates, coming to think of himself as a God and even naming his son Emanuel. The book is a supreme polemic, a spiritual expose of an attack against any society that encourages or even permits the growth of such a monstrosity. SIGNED copies of this title are quite RARE. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: biblioman5 [Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States]
