In Evil Hour. Translated from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa.
London: Jonathan Cape, 1980 - Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine gilt, top edge red. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy, with edge of text block lightly foxed, in the bright jacket. First UK edition, first impression, inscribed by the author on the half-title, "Gabriel, '89." 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". It was first published in the US in 1979, and originally published in Madrid under the title La Mala Hora in 1962. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
