Garcia Marquez, Gabriel
Leaf Storm and other Stories.
New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1972. First edition with the statement of first edition to the copyright page and the full number line on the final page of this early collection of stories by Garcia Marquez. Octavo, original cloth, patterned endpapers. Boldly signed by Gabriel Garcia Marquez on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of shelfwear. Jacket design by Guy Fleming. Translated from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa. An exceptional example. La Hojarasca was first published in Bogota, Columbia in 1955, later translated into English and published in 1972, as The Leaf Storm. Widely celebrated as the first appearance of Macondo, the fictitious village later celebrated in One Hundred Years of Solitude, La Hojarosca was a testing ground for many of the themes and characters later immortalized in One Hundred Years of Solitude. "Garcia Marquez has extraordinary strength and firmness of imagination and writes with the calmness of a man who knows exactly what wonders he can perform" (Alfred Kazin, New York Times Book Review). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books [United States]
