GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" SIGNED 1st Printing RARE
Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1983. First edition of this novella by the Nobel Prize-winning author. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed and warmly inscribed ("del amigo") by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Fine in a fine price-clipped dust jacket. First state dust-jacket with "One Hundred Days of Solitude" error on front flap; Nobel Prize winner Gabriel García Márquez's novel about the codes that men impose on women, and women on themselves; the curious notions of honor that can dominate an isolated community; the irresistible impulse toward violence; and the psychology of mass complicity (from the dust-jacket). Jacket illustration by Alain Gauthier. Jacket design by Sara Eisenman. Translated from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa. "A tour de force . . . In prose that is spare yet heavy with meaning, Garcia Marquez gives us not merely a chronicle but a portrait of the town and its collective psyche . . . not merely a family but an entire culture" (The Washington Post Book World ). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
